This tutorial will help you to get rid of Palikan Search virus from your browser. Note that most likely this problem occurs with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. Other browsers, however, aren’t an exception and can be affected by it as well.
Any unwanted installations of browser hijackers like Palikan Search take place when users download and install various free applications. You need to realize that it is your personal responsibility to pay close attention to what exactly you’re going to the make the part of your system in addition to the main application of your choice. If you read about this hijacker or any other unwanted programs as third-party offers, make sure you switch to the advanced or custom installation mode where you will be able to uncheck these third-party extras from being brought into your system by default.
It is surely a regret to know that there are some people who fail to be duly attentive during freeware installation. They often simply click on “Next” and “I agree” buttons all the time, without actually reading what they agree with. Hence, they often allow all sorts of useless extra programs like Palikan Search to become the part of their PCs easily.
You may notice that the home page of your hijacked browser has been changed into palikan.com. All your search queries will therefore be redirected through this domain name. The home page of your browser will display some intrusive and quite misleading ads, which have in mind to make you click on them and to redirect you to all sorts of dangerous websites. These websites, in their turn, may cause you to install many useless and even malicious applications. Finally, the pseudo search results redirected through palikan.com will be diluted with a lot of misleading sponsored links on the top of such search results.
