How does it behave

You likely got it was through free application installation. This is likely just a case of negligence, and you didn’t purposely install it. This method is effective because users tend to rush when installing something, not reading the data provided, and in general just being rather careless during program installation. The offers are hiding and by rushing you loose all chance of seeing them, and you not noticing them means their installation will be authorized. Default mode will conceal the offers, and by picking them, you might contaminate your machine with all types of unnecessary offers. Make sure you always opt for Advanced or Custom settings, as only there will extra offers not be concealed. Ensure you uncheck all the offers. All you have to do is unmark the offers, and you may then continue installing the freeware. Preventing the infection from the very beginning can can go a long way to save you a lot time because dealing with it later might be time-consuming and aggravating. You also have to be more cautious about where you get your programs from because by choosing questionable sources, you are boosting your chances of obtaining an infection.

Alterations to your browser will be carried out without permission, mainly your home web page, new tabs and search engine will be changed to an unknown web page. It’s possible that it’ll affect all of the major browsers, like Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. And until you erase Treps.xyz from the machine, the site will load every time you launch your browser. Trying to change the settings back would a waste of time since the redirect virus will reverse them. If you see that when you search for something through browser’s address bar, search results are created by a weird search engine, the redirect virus probably modified it. You might come across advertising links in the results, since the threats’s main intention is to redirect you. You will be redirected because hijackers aim to aid page owners earn more profit, and with boosted traffic, more ad revenue is earned. With more people entering the site, it’s more likely that the owners will be able to make more money as more people will engage with adverts. If you click on those sites, you will be taken to pages with no relation to what you were searching for, where you will not find relevant data. Or they may seem valid, if you were to make an inquiry for ‘antivirus’, you could get results for web pages promoting suspicious anti-malware applications, but look entirely valid at first. You could even end up on pages that harbor malicious software. Furthermore, the redirect virus may monitor your Internet use and collect certain type of information about you. More relevant ads may be made using the gathered data, if third-parties gain access to it.
