Easy steps to uninstall Hi.fo browser hijacker:
Hi.fo is a potentially unwanted software (LPI), identified as a browser hijacker and adware. Hi.fo is used by an unknown advertiser at this time to boost web traffic by hijacking web traffic, which can be seen on Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer commonly. This tactic often works through a pay-per-click scheme, which allows advertisers to make money. What Hi.fo does is change the web browser settings and remove all security programs installed on the affected web browser. This allows Hi.fo to promote fake advertisements that appear on web browsers, as well as banner-type ads that are injected into websites visited during browsing sessions. Advertised websites may have links to popular sites such as Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, and others. Hi.fo also has a search engine function, which allows it to insert sponsored websites in the results of any search engine query made by the user on the computer concerned.
