Have your browser‘s home page changed to Trickyquestion.com? We are sad to tell you, but that is double bad news for you and your Windows operating system. First, you may have been infected with a browser hijacker. Second, if so, you have also been infected with an adware application. This latter malware infection is a nasty piece. Of course, both of these infections can cause different degrees of system security issues. Their presence on your computer is like riding a bike without brakes down the hill – you do not want to wait till you reach the bottom, so you are better off getting off the bike ASAP. That is why we suggest that you remove Trickyquestion.com together with the related adware app right now. For the details, please continue reading our article.
This browser hijacker “walks hand in hand” with Vonteera adware program and, of course, they travel in the same freeware bundle. They are usually bundled in the Middle East, in countries, such as Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates. It does not mean that you cannot download such bundle by visiting suspicious freeware hosting websites or torrent sites, though. If you have Trickyquestion.com hijacker on your computer, that is only part of your problem, or rather the smaller part. Coming with this adware makes this browser hijacker a dangerous resident on your computer. This adware can also work as a Trojan and drop malware infections onto your computer. Actually, it keeps changing its behavior every few months or so. If you want to restore the security of your PC, you cannot just delete Trickyquestion.com, you also need to make sure that Vonteera and any other related infection are also taken care of as soon as possible.
Once Trickyquestion.com enters your system, it changes your browsers’ shortcut Target lines to make sure that the home page will always be s3.amazonaws.com/amazo/RNND/sRCH2.html or other page from this same domain so that every time you launch your browser, it will be hijacked. Therefore, you cannot simply remove Trickyquestion.com by restoring the home page settings in your browsers; they will always be overwritten by the Target line. This is a rather intrusive and pushy method that clearly breaches your privacy as it acts without your permission. Whenever you go browsing the web, the altered Target line will redirect you to a website that can be either Trickyquestion.com, 521news.com, search.ask.com, or even google.com. Although we have not noticed unreliable third-party advertisements with regard to Trickyquestion.com, the plain fact that it comes with a dangerous adware application is rather worrisome, not to mention that this browser hijacker resides on the same server where other notorious hijackers can be found. If you want to keep your system intact, you should not keep either Trickyquestion.com or the related adware on-board.
In order to clean your system of Trickyquestion.com, as we have already mentioned, it is not enough to restore your browser shortcuts’ Target lines; you also have to remove Vonteera and all related applications. You can do that via Control Panel. Please follow our instructions below if you want to handle this manually. However, we also recommend the use of a reliable antimalware tool that can automatically eliminate all system security issues. This way you can be certain that your computer is safe to use.
