My browser gets directed to http://www.fidonav.com/

Jump to solution

My browser gets directed to http://www.fidonav.com/ .

Against my well it has become the homepage.

Despite removing its URL from the browser properties or replacing it, it just comes back.

Does any one have a solution for this?

Thanks to you I did reset my browser and did get rid of this redirection to "fidonav.com".

I did not go to the steps of downloading any malware removal apps or programs.

I did use the McAfee online virus removal software, though.  My computer was clean!

Now I find out that my browser was hijacked.

Should n't McAfee do something about it?

For total protection?!

Sometimes this hard as the user has ticked a box so  some not so bad software get installed. One always has to watch what is installed and AVs are never100% coverage.. How you got hijacked I am not familiar with but the link I gave should have fixed you. Did it?

I am usually critical about downloading and installing any software from the internet.  Only the well known sites and only if it is a necessity are my sources of softwares.

That is why, I felt troubled with this not easily resolved redirection of my browser.

Thanks again for your responses.
