v9.com redirects can also be caused by a severe Trojan or rootkit infection infecting your operating system and not limited to your web browser. The most common symptom of these kinds of problems is constant redirects to the v9.com website in which your web browser forces you to visit this website repeatedly against your will. ESG security researchers strongly advise using an appropriate anti-malware tool to remove all malware that may be causing these kinds of redirects
Browser hijackers are malware infections designed to force your web browser to visit websites like v9.com against your will. A browser hijacker infection interferes severely with your normal activities, making it very difficult to browse the Web normally or use your computer for other tasks. Malware associated with v9.com will also make unauthorized changes to your web browser's settings. For example, you may find that your search engine and bookmarks have been changed to unknown websites, including v9.com. Your homepage will also have been changed to v9.com. Trying to undo these changes is useless unless the infection causing them is removed. The changes will remain when the infected web browser starts up again. v9.com redirects will often occur following a search executed on a genuine search engine as a way to trick inexperienced computer users into exposing themselves to sponsored search results on v9.com.
Sources of Browser Hijackers Responsible for v9.com Redirects
Most computer users affected by v9.com redirects will have installed a malicious toolbar associated with this website. This toolbar is often bundled with freeware applications, and it is often possible to opt out during the installation process. However, careless installation of freeware programs may result in this toolbar being installed without your consent. It is also possible to become infected with browser hijackers associated with v9.com after visiting unsafe websites or opening unsolicited email attachments. Because of this, ESG malware researchers recommend using a dependable anti-malware program to protect your computer, avoiding unsafe websites (such as file sharing networks and pornographic websites) and never opening unsolicited email attachments. It is also preferable to avoid installing freeware programs that require installing a toolbar on your computer. There are often better free alternatives that do not require installing adware or browser hijackers and malicious toolbars.
