How are hijackers generally installed

Not a lot of users are aware of the fact that added items generally come together with freeware. Advertisement-supported software, hijackers and other potentially not wanted tools could come as those added items. You may only check for additional items in Advanced (Custom) mode so picking those settings will help to avoid hijacker and other undesirable utility installations.

Why should you remove Hi.ru redirect?

Expect for your browser’s settings to be changed as soon as the redirect virus manages to enter your machine. 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 modified settings. And unless you first abolish Hi.ru redirect, you may not be able to undo the setting modifications. Your new homepage will have a search engine, and we don’t encourage using as it will insert advertisement contents into the legitimate search results, in order to reroute you. Redirect viruses reroute you to weird portals because the more traffic the site gets, the more profit owners get. What makes the redirects greatly aggravating is that you will end up on all types of strange sites. You must also be aware that the reroutes might also be somewhat damaging. You can come across malware when being rerouted, so the reroutes aren’t always harmless. To stop a much more severe infection, remove Hi.ru redirect from your machine.
