What is NJax?
NJax is a tricky adware program that also has other unwanted features like redirecting computer users to unreliable pages. The ad-supported application can come bundled with malicious installers that are in Portuguese. It is mostly targeted at users from the US, Portugal and Brazil. NJax fills your browsers with various commercial data which becomes a big part of your surfing. The adware can appear in all popular browsers. It may not be malicious itself, however, there is certainly nothing useful about it either. We recommend you eliminate NJax from your system as soon as you can.
How does NJax work?
The main difference between NJax and other ad-supported programs is that it is also capable of redirecting your Google searches. Every time you try to search for something using Google search engine you are redirected to Yahoo Search and presented with modified results. The adware does not add its own search providers or extensions to your browsers. Instead, the running process catches the search item and redirects you to Yahoo through NJax servers.
It is clear that you should not trust any information that is brought to you by this freeware. It does not overview the content that it provides and thus you could easily be exposed to fake ads and corrupted links. That is why it is extremely important to get rid of NJax as soon as you can. Entering a corrupted page, even by accident, could result in malware infections. And if a malicious program gets access to your system, you will experience serious computer malfunctions and, potentially, data loss. Moreover, you should bear in mind that adware programs collect information about your browsing habits. They also use a lot of your system resources, so you can expect that your PC will not function as fast as it used to. The same goes for the Internet connection speed.
How to delete NJax from my computer?
If you want to remove NJax from your PC, you can choose from two options. It is possible to terminate the adware manually via Control Panel or to use a malware removal tool. If you go for the first option, you can use the instructions presented below the article. If, however, you want to not only eliminate NJax from your system, but also make sure that it stays safe in the future, you should certainly choose the second one. Implementing an anti-malware utility will enable you to clean your PC completely. The program will also function as a malware prevention tool which is definitely something that you should have on your computer if you want it to be infection-free.
