What is Vi-view.com?
Vi-view.com is a browser hijacker which, like any other browser hijacker this one claims to be a useful and reliable search engine. In reality, the main purpose of the program is to make profit by redirecting you to various webpages without your permission. Vi-view.com is compatible with all popular browsers. It is similar to other browser hijackers such as Qvo6.com, key-find.com, Delta-homes.com, etc. None of these applications can be trusted therefore we suggest to remove Vi-view.com from your PC asap.
How does Vi-view.com work?
First of all, you should probably know how Vi-view.com got into your system in the first place. It is highly likely that you do not remember installing Vi-view.com because it came bundled with other freeware. If you downloaded free software from the Internet and installed it without checking all information this is why Vi-view.com is now on your computer. You should be especially attentive when installing freeware as quite often it does come with potentially unwanted programs.
After Vi-view.com gets installed it will change your search engine and your home page. Furthermore, it will be practically impossible to use any of your browsers because you will be constantly interrupted by ads, pop-ups, sponsored links and other unnecessary data. Then the browser hijacker will get creative. In order to make sure that you click on the promoted links it will start collecting your browsing history and provide you with adverts that will seem useful. Please note, that clicking on the links provided by Vi-view.com is a risky business as they may be corrupted or contain offensive data.
As a result of all of the effects caused by Vi-view.com you will notice that your computer speed has decreased. The longer you keep this browser hijacker, the more damage it can do: it may cause the system to freeze, it may corrupt your files, you may even receive fake alerts urging you to download a program that will help you improve your PC performance. The messages should not be trusted. Instead, you should delete Vi-view.com from your computer by using a reliable malware removal tool.
