How would I remove the Bing redirect virus from iMac
I need help. Could someone please tell me how to take off the Bing redirect virus? Thank you and God bless whoever can help me.
Is this a good question?
Bing redirect virus is a term used to describe browser hijackers that can silently enter your system bundled with other software. Once inside, it might initiate system changes and alter the shortcuts of each web browser installed on the device. The main feature of Bing virus is setting this search provider as a default search engine or/and homepage URL address. If you feel helpless because Google redirects to Bing without a break, think what freeware did you recently install on your computer. The biggest chance when dealing with such cases is that you installed free software from an insecure source that was filled with the browser hijacker as an extra component. It changed your browser's settings what led you to these issues. At the moment, Bing redirect virus is more active on Mac operating system.
