Even though Semnager is primarily recognized as Trojan.Semnager, this computer infection is usually identified as a browser hijacker because it can corrupt Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers. The infection can install onto the computer and connect to the Internet without any permission, which is the first sign that its activity is unreliable and should not be tolerated. If you have discovered that the home page and the default search of your browsers have been changed to the suspicious default-search.net, you definitely should look out for the Trojan. Continue reading the report as it explains how to delete Semnager from the system.

When Semnager Trojan enters the operating system, it may corrupt the browsers to present the services of default-search.net or linkeyproject.com. The suspicious search tool should be removed right away because it does not present useful services. In fact, instead of presenting original search results, it routes you to Yahoo Search. What is more, the banner advertisements presented by this search tool promote suspicious products which actually act as bait to trick you into visiting various random sites. Due to this, when you choose to remove Semnager, you may need to delete Linkey Project and Default-search.net.

Even though in the Privacy Policy of Default-search.net it is stated that the web cookies installed alongside it do not track personally identifiable information, the fact that unfamiliar cookies linked to unfamiliar search tool exist is suspicious enough. You can choose to remove Semnager related cookies and files; however, unless you remove them all, your virtual protection will not be secured. Note that if you do delete the web cookies, there is no point in running the Linkey plugin or the suspicious search tool. Our malware researchers recommend that you delete all Semnager related software right away.

To delete Semnager from the Windows operating system you should install automatic malware removal software. Even though certain components related to this Trojan can be deleted manually, the removal of the entire infection is quite complicated. Click the download button and install a reliable malware remover which will also safeguard your operating system against other threats alike. If you want to perform the operation manually, begin by getting rid of unreliable software and unwanted search tools. Note that sometimes the infection may conceal itself, which is why many act carelessly with its removal. Use a malware scanner to make sure that you do not miss any threats.
