How did the hijacker infect your OS

You likely did not know that free programs oftentimes travel with adjoined offers. It might have ad-supported programs, hijackers and various unwanted programs attached to it. Those added offers could only be found in Advanced (Custom) settings so select those settings if you wish to avoid installing all kinds of unnecessary clutter. If there are additional offers, simply unmark the boxes. Default mode won’t show any items so by picking them, you are essentially providing them permission to install automatically. You should remove Drivingdirectionsnow.org as it didn’t even ask for explicit authorization to set up.

Why should you terminate Drivingdirectionsnow.org?

Don’t be shocked to see your browser’s settings altered the moment it manages to invades your system. The hijacker’s promoted site will be set as your homepage, new tabs and search engine. All main browsers, like Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, will have those modifications performed. And unless you first erase Drivingdirectionsnow.org, you might not be able to reverse the setting changes. A search engine will appear on your new home web page but we don’t advise using it as it will implant sponsored content into the results, in order to reroute you. Hijackers want to make as much traffic as possible for portals so that owners get income, which is why you will be routinely rerouted. You will quickly grow frustrated with the reroute virus as it will constantly reroute you to weird websites. Even if the hijacker is not dangerous itself, it can still cause serious trouble. You can bump into malware when being redirected, so do not expect the reroutes to always be harmless. To prevent a much more severe infection, erase Drivingdirectionsnow.org from your PC.
