AllMyWeb.com Hijacker/Redirect Description:
AllMyWeb.com is categorized as a browser hijacker. It is created and managed by online criminals in order to promote their products and then make money from the browser usage. When it comes to your computer, it can take control of your web browser and change your home page, redirect your search results to malicious sites, or hammer you with a barrage of popup ads. Thus, whenever you try to browse online, this page will appear itself without your permission. It could be your homepage or come as a new tab, trying to interrupt your browsing experience. AllMyWeb search page looks like Google Search that provides search on Web, Images, Videos and Shopping and it claims it is powered by Yahoo. However, this is a fraudulent search result and it only forces your web browser to AllMyWeb.com constantly so as criminals can use the artificial traffic to boost affiliate payments but will never provide you any reliable search results.
If your browser is infected with AllMyWeb.com, you will find it hard to browse online. Everything on your computer must be slow like a snail. When you go to facebook or Youtube, it lags and keeps loading. Browser hijackers often come bundled to freeware and shareware, like music players, PDF creators and so on. Since some computer users go through the installation steps very quickly, just hitting on the “Next” button, they may miss the options indicating about replacing their homepage or adding another program. This is why the unwanted AllMyWeb Search can be added. It can completely mess up your browser by performing the following actions:
Home page is replaced and favorite search engines are disabled.
Unknown toolbars or extensions are automatically installed.
Annoying pop-up ads are everywhere on the webs.
Users are constantly redirected to unwanted results.
Browser is slow in loading pages.
If you have already noticed your homepage has been changed to AllMyWeb.com, you may also detect a lot of ads when you make searches. The program tends to add many sponsored websites in your search results. Although this page seems to be a useful search provider, it just provides fake search results. The only goal of such virus is to use the artificial traffic to boost affiliate payments. Hence, don’t hesitate to get rid of it once it is found.
