What is Myhome.vi-view.com?
If your home page, new tab page and default search engine have recently been switched to Myhome.vi-view.com it means that your browser has been hijacked. Myhome.vi-view.com changes your settings without your permission as soon as it enters your computer. That usually happens via bundled downloads.
So if you have recently downloaded freeware from sites like cnet.com, softonic.com, brothersoft.com and so on that is how you acquired the hijacker. Myhome.vi-view.com is similar to a number of other programs like istart123.com, v9.com, omiga-plus.com, etc. None of these applications are useful in any way. The sooner you delete Myhome.vi-view.com the better.
How does Myhome.vi-view.com work?
Myhome.vi-view.com was created in order to generate traffic of certain websites. The Myhome.vi-view.com webpage itself seems normal enough when you see it for the first time. It has a search box, quick access buttons and different search parameters like Images, Videos, News and Games. The page also displays fake adverts which is already slightly concerning. The quick access buttons are not much better either. Some of them are links to popular pages like Facebook and YouTube while others promote potentially unwanted programs like Yet Another Cleaner. You should not trust any data received from Myhome.vi-view.com as you may never be sure of whether or not it is true. We recommend to stay away from links and ads provided by the program if you do not want to risk exposing your PC to malware. If you click on a fake ad you may get redirected to a page where a malicious program will advertised as a useful tool like a software update or a video codec. You could also be tricked into entering your details in some fake lottery or survey. Do not be fooled by these virtual scams and terminate Myhome.vi-view.com as soon as you can.
