Nicewinner.net is a browser hijacker site that may present multiple pop-up alerts at random when surfing the Internet. The Nicewinner.net pop-ups may also come in the form of notifications that attempt to get the computer user to allow additional notifications, which is believed to be part of a pay-per-click or pay-per-impression scheme.

The actions of Nicewinner.net root from its accompanying components or browser extensions. Such components may load when installing freeware apps or bundled software. When loaded, the Nicewinner.net components may modify Internet settings to potentially set the Nicewinner.net site as a default home page.

The many annoyances of Nicewinner.net may be remedied by the removal of the Nicewinner.net components or browser extensions. Such a process may be more involved than simply deleting the extensions as doing so could leave behind associated components allowing the same annoyances to continue.

Computer security experts highly recommend that the removal of a browser hijacker like Nicewinner.net be done using an antimalware tool where all components of the hijacker can be safely detected and eliminated.
