When a hijacker infiltrates your PC, it will alter your browser’s settings. The hijacker’s promoted site will be set as your homepage, new tabs and search engine. It does not really matter which browser you use, whether it’s Internet Explorer, Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, because they will all have altered settings. And all your efforts to undo the changes will go to waste unless you first terminate Smartsrch.com from your computer.
