V9.com is a website that functions as a default home page for everyone who got infected with V9 Redirect Virus. It is a browser hijacker that slithers into your system behind your back and then performs various system modifications resulting in unsolicited changes of your browser settings. Although V9.com may seem like a genuine search engine that can provide you with relevant search results, the truth is that it could eventually lead you to a serious malware infection, so it is for the best to remove V9.com from your system as soon as possible.

When your computer is set for V9.com, if you click the About Us button at the bottom right of the screen, you will see that V9 is presented as a product of a company located in Chin – Beijing ELEX Technology Co. Ltd. However, there is an entire list of similar browser hijackers that are making use of company names to present themselves as reliable search providers. The list includes Delta-Homes, Qvo6, Qone8, PortaldoSites, and other similar infections. The problem is that sometimes it is hard to tell which search engine is reliable and which is not, so users may realize they are infected a tad too late.

The main difference between a browser extension and a browser hijacker is the fact that browser hijacker does not ask for a permission to get installed on your computer. Therefore, even if you have downloaded V9.com along with some freeware application, it may not inform you about the oncoming installation, and you would end up unwittingly installing the infection and modifying your browser settings yourself.

However, in case you got infected with V9.com the most important thing is to avoid clicking on the pop-up advertisements and sponsored links embedded in V9 Search results. This browser hijacker makes use of a third party advertising network, and consequently it can be exploited by a third party as well to promote potentially harmful content. The content may seem to be related to your usual search queries, because V9.com collects information on your web browsing via cookies. Nevertheless, you should never click the pop-up ads, because there might be corrupted links embedded in them.
