What you need to know about these infections

Not everyone is aware of this but redirect viruses are generally attached to freeware. Since these are very annoying infections, we very much doubt you got it willingly. Because people rarely pay attention to how they install applications, hijackers and similar infections may spread. The offers are hidden and by rushing you loose all chance of seeing them, and you not noticing them means their installation will be authorized. Do not select Default settings as they’ll not display anything. Advanced (Custom) mode, on the other hand, will display you those items. You are suggested to uncheck all the items. Only continue with the application installation after you uncheck everything. Dealing with the infection could take a while not to mention it being aggravating, so it would be best if you blocked the infection in the first place. We also suggest not downloading from untrustworthy sources as they are a great method to distribute malware.

It will change your browser’s settings, set its promoted page as your homepage, new tabs and search engine, and it will do that even if you do not agree with the modifications.

The page will load every time you launch your browser, and this will continue until you eliminate Pushtouchme.info from your system. The redirect virus will keep overruling the changes back so there’s no use in wasting time trying to change anything. If the redirect virus also sets a different search engine for you, every time you search for something through browser’s address bar or the provided search box, you’d receive results generated by that engine. Relying on those results isn’t recommended because you’ll end up on advertisement pages. The hijackers will redirect you because they aim to aid site owners make more revenue from increased traffic. More traffic helps page owners make revenue as more people are likely to engage with the ads. You’ll be able to tell the difference between those and legitimate web pages quite easily, mainly because they’ll not match your search inquiry. There will be cases, however, where they could appear legitimate in the beginning, if you were to search ‘virus’, web pages promoting false security programs could come up, and they might appear to be real initially. When you are rerouted, you could end up with an infection because those sites may be concealing malware. It’s likely the redirect virus will also follow your Internet activity, collecting various information about your browsing activity. Unfamiliar parties might also access the information, and then use it to create more personalized adverts. If not, the redirect virus could be using it to make more personalized sponsored results. That’s why you ought to delete Pushtouchme.info. After the process is complete, you should be able to undo the modifications carried out by the redirect virus.
