I think my computer was infected by Hijacker, because my Explorers, whatever Internet explorer, Firefox, or Google chrome, were out of control. Every time I open a new page, there is always a dazzling scene showing on the screen which drives me crazy, the numberless and endless pop-up ads take up almost all my screen, it just like seeing a wall with all doodle on it. It is the thing that call “Newzio 1.4” tempered the settings of my Explores, most of my Explores buttons are failure to press, all my favorite URLs are gone, they are replace by many indescribable Advertising sites, never heard any of them before. These were all done without my permission. That is not the worse, for me, the most annoying thing is when I type a new URL on the address bar, it keeps redirecting to another site which I don’t mean to, or just showing nothing. I want to ask, what kind of virus is that? Seems like it just affects my Explorers, the rest of my programs can still run normally, but I don’t think that’s a good news for me, cause I’m kind of the person who happen to have net addition, each time, I turn on my PC mostly for surfing the internet. I’m really pissed off, if I can’t use my computer for surfing normally, then it’s nothing but a useless machine. Is that this hijacker can pick specific users? If not, then why it chose me? However, I can still recall the process of this whole thing, how I got this Newzio 1.4 virus on my computer in the first place, that’s because I found an interesting Network video, when I clicked it, it asked me to download their given video program so I can watch the whole version, I downloaded it, and Newzio 1.4 adware, this is what came out, I got to admit I learn a lesson from this one, but before everything, I need help to remove Ads by Newzio 1.4 virus, my antivirus program is helpless from this one either.
