A Browser Hijacker is a program, malicious or otherwise, that changes the home page or search settings of a web browser. There are some hijackers that will modify Windows shortcuts without your knowledge to automatically load a particular web site when you start them. Many hijackers can be removed by simply uninstalling them from the Add or Remove Programs or Uninstall Programs Windows control panel. Some are more tenacious and require anti-virus programs or specialized tools. Browser hijackers generate profit and traffic to websites that capture personal computer data or install key loggers, malware or adware to steal sensitive information, such as usernames and passwords.
