You are keeping redirected to v9.com? Homepage is changed and even search goes strange? Read this post to figure it out and follow the detailed removal instructions to get rid of v9.com search redirects completely. Read on.


What is v9.com search redirect?

V9 Search is a browser hijacker, which is promoted via other free downloads, and once installed it will change your browser homepage to www.v9.com/newtab and default search engine to search.v9.com. This in itself is not considered malicious as there are many legitimate programs that change these settings as well. What is considered malicious, though, is that it will also append the arguement http://www.v9.com/ro/newtab?si=41460&shortcut=true&tid=293 to random Windows shortcuts on your desktop and your Windows Start Menu.

V9 Search will display advertisements and sponsored links in your search results, and may collect search terms from your search queries.

How Did V9 Search Get onto Your Computer?

V9 Search got on your computer after you have installed another free software or add-on that had bundled into their installer this browser hijacker.

For example, when you install vPlay, you will also agree to change your default browser home page to www.v9.com/newtab, and default search engine to search.v9.com.

However, when you uninstall vPlay from your computer, your web browser’s default settings will not be restored. This means that you’ll have to remove V9 Search from your favorite web browser manually.


Tips to Avoid Unexpected Install like V9 Search

You should always pay attention when installing software because often, a software installer includes optional installs, such as this V9 Search. Be very careful what you agree to install.

Always opt for the custom installation and deselect anything that is not familiar, especially optional software that you never wanted to download and install in the first place. It goes without saying that you should not install software that you don’t trust.
