Google Webhp Virus is a browser redirection infection that forcefully redirects you to fake Google website at Google.com/WebHP. You get redirected to this fake website via such malevolent search engines as searchou.com or searchab.com. When you are infected Google Webhp Virus, the infection basically takes over your browser by randomly opening new browser windows and tabs to load Google.com/WebHP home page. The infection disables various built-in security measures and exposes your computer to a list of dangerous malware, because Google Webhp Virus constantly displays pop-ups and fake error messages.

This infection has many ways to enter your system. It installs randomly named files in %USERPOFILE% and %APPDATA% directories. The latter directory (in case of infection) is known to store a random .dll extension file that belongs to Google Webhp Virus.

However, no matter which way of malware distribution is responsible for bringing you Google Webhp Virus, if you have the browser hijacker on your PC, it is very likely that you are infected with tons of other malware as well. That is so because Google Webhp Virus can come with rootkits that remain hidden in your system for a considerable amount of time. Also, Google Webhp Virus is related to ILivid Toolbar that is promoted as a browser extension that can help you to download online videos.
