This disease actually happens with all widely used browsers, such as Google Chrome, Opera, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. Once the attack is successful, users start facing 4-you.net to be set in the home pages of all these browsers, provided that they’re all installed.
4-you.net is advertised as some superb search engine. However, when you try to look for the information through it you will most likely not be able to find anything essentially helpful. Instead, what you will see will be plenty of intrusive advertisement banners that will be located in different parts of your homepages hijacked by this infection.

Always carefully read the instructions contained in the EULAs (End User License Agreements) related to free applications you’re going to install into your system. Doing so will help you to avoid any unwanted adware intrusions into your system.
