DnsIO is a piece of software that our malware experts identify as a potentially unwanted program. This program not only does not work the way it is supposed to but also changes DNS settings, which is why it can be very disruptive. On top of that, this PUP can modify your default search provider and change your homepage. Even though it is unlikely that this suspicious program will hijack the homepage on your browsers without permission, you might agree to the changes by accident. The changes to your browsers are set by default, and, if you want to keep using your regular search tools, you have to uncheck boxes indicating that you agree to modify your search settings. Whether or not you have avoided the installation of the suspicious search tools, we advise deleting DnsIO.
It is likely that you have downloaded DnsIO packaged with malware. Even though you can download this program from dnsio.net, it is likely that you will download it packaged with a few other programs. Just like its clone, LookSafe, DnsIO could be distributed along with very malicious programs, and, if they slither into your operating system, you should remove them as soon as possible. You probably need no convincing about why you need to delete malicious programs, but why should you remove DnsIO? First of all, this program does not deserve to remain active on your PC because its services are bogus. It is unlikely that this program will guard DNS and protect you from malicious programs they way it promises you to.
Once installed, DnsIO will change your homepages on Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers to dnsioweb.net. It will also change the DNS servers. According to our researchers, your IP could be replaced with any address from the range 188.8.131.52-184.108.40.206. On top of that, DnsIO can install a Firefox add-on. Our researchers indicate that this browser add-on is most likely to be used for ad injection into the sites you visit. If you remove DnsIO add-on, it is likely that the commercial ads and irritating pop-ups will disappear. If they do not disappear after eliminating the add-on, they will certainly disappear after you delete the suspicious potentially unwanted program. Keep in mind that the suspicious ads shown to you might be misleading, which is why you should think twice before interacting with them.
Although most users understand why they should delete DnsIO, not all know how to do that. We advise resetting your browsers to get rid of unreliable browser extensions and search tools. After that, you will need to restore the DNS settings. Neither of these operations is very complicated, but we have created a removal guide making them even easier. When it comes to third-party infections that could have been installed onto your PC, you should rely on authentic security software, such as SpyHunter, to delete them automatically. You can click the Download button below to acquire this tool. Unfortunately, even though this tool can remove DnsIO components, you might have to change DNS settings manually.
