Hijacker Removal Tool 1.0

A simple-to-use application that helps users scan their computer for Hijacker viruses and remove them, while offering support for three scanning modes
Hijacker Removal Tool is a lightweight application built specifically for helping users scan their computer for Hijacker viruses that may comprise their system security.

These types of threats may cause serious problems when trying to access different websites, as they are able to redirect you to other webpages. The spyware can alter the default searching page of your current web browser and your default webpage as well.

This is why you need dedicated tools, like Hijacker Removal Tool, which can detect the presence of Hijacker viruses on your computer and delete them on the breeze.

The utility sports a clean and intuitive layout that allows users to perform most operations with just a few clicks. Plus, it offers step-by-step assistance through the removal process, so even rookies can learn how to get rid of the virus with minimum effort.

Hijacker Removal Tool connects to the server and automatically updates its virus definitions, and lets you pause the scanning process.

The program comes bundled with three scanning modes, namely a “Low” one, which is able to check only the dangerous areas from your PC, a “Medium” mode, as well as a “High” method built specifically for performing a full scan, where every file from your PC is checked for viruses.

Of course, if you opt for the last mode, the application may need some extra time to carry out the job. What’s more, you can select the locations to be scanned from your PC, add new files, edit, or delete the current ones.

Other important features worth mentioning are represented by the possibility to reset all browsers’ settings (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome) to their default ones, and protect your removable devices from viruses by activating the “Immunize Drives” mode.

During our testing we have noticed that the application needs several minutes to finish the scanning operation. It stresses up the CPU and memory, so the overall performance of the computer may be burdened.

All things considered, Hijacker Removal Tool seems to be the right choice for all users who are looking for an easy-to-use Hijacker removal tool. Its intuitive layout makes it an ideal tool for beginners and professionals alike,
