As is the case with all browser hijackers, Guigoog.com gets installed through software bundles because you do not pay enough attention to how you install software. Fortunately for you, Guigoog.com is not malicious and it will not harm your computer directly. But it will still behave in an irritating manner. It will alter your browser’s settings and potentially gather certain information about your browsing habits. Browser hijackers have no place on your computer and it is also worth noting that hijackers can sometimes lead users to potentially dangerous websites. If such a page is entered, the possibility of picking up malware is that much higher. You probably do not need much convincing but you should delete Guigoog.com as soon as possible.
Potentially unwanted programs like Guigoog.com travel via software bundles. They are attached to free software in a way that allows them to install alongside it if you do not notice it. Those items are option and can be deselected but that can only be done in Advanced (Custom) installation mode. When installing free software, choose Advanced settings, deselect the added items and you can then proceed to install the freeware. Do not opt for Default settings because in them, you will not be able to deselect anything and will be basically giving those added items the permission to install. Had you selected Advanced when you installed freeware, you would not need to worry about having to uninstall Guigoog.com .
A browser hijacker will alter your browser’s settings as soon as it is installed onto your computer. In this case, you will suddenly find that Guigoog.com has hijacked all your browsers, including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, and has set itself as your homepage and new tabs. These changes are made without your permission and cannot be undone unless you first remove Guigoog.com from your computer. As soon as you see Guigoog.com , you will immediately think something is wrong as it does not look like a legitimate search engine. If you try to use it, you will be redirected Google. It would not be surprising if it managed to alter your search results to include sponsored content as browser hijackers aim to generate pay-per-click revenue by redirecting users to those web pages. Guigoog.com might also be monitoring your browsing activities and gathering data about what web pages you visit and what you search for. That information could then be sold to third-parties. A hijacker should not remain on your computer, therefore, delete Guigoog.com .
