What is Go.pajosh.com

Go.pajosh.com stands for unwanted search engine promoted by Pajosh browser hijacker. Software of this kind takes over browser settings to thrust various changes. Go.pajosh.com gets assigned instead of the default homepage address, which makes users see it each time launching a browser. Visually, it looks quite similar to legitimate browsing platforms like Google, Bing, Yahoo, and others. This helps developers prevent some inexperienced or novice users from spotting anything suspicious during the browsing session. Even though, it is still quite obvious your browser is under third-party affection. The range of affected browsers usually includes Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer as they are most utilized by people. Slower speed, lags, unexpected redirects, and dubious ads are all symptoms of browser hijackers abusing your system. What is more, such software is able to monitor personal data (e.g. passwords, IP addresses, geolocations) entered by users or generated by browsers whilst accessing websites. It can therefore leak to third-party ventures seeking to capitalize on innocent users. Knowing this, it is recommended to stop go.pajosh.com by deleting its unwanted program. Below, we will show all instructions necessary for its complete and trace-free removal.

How Go.pajosh.com infected your computer

The most popular method used by cybercriminals to distribute adware or hijackers is known as “bundling”. The mechanism is simple – developers willing to spread unwanted software collaborate with third-party vendors that promote pirated, cracked or freeware programs on high traffic websites. They insert Potentially Unwanted Programs inside of “Advanced” or “Custom” sections as additional offers. Such offers can be enabled or disabled by personal choice, though, because they are often set up for installation by default, users that skip them end up infected without consent. For this reason, it is vital to check the installation for third-party offers that could be hidden within. Sometimes installation setups greet users with a section to choose between “Recommended” or “Manual” types of installation. Always opt for “Manual” types as you will be able to deselect unnecessary offers if any. To ensure you are no longer an easy target for such software in the future, it is worth learning a couple of tips regarding protection. You can get full access to them down below.
