Posted by Britt Duncan - September 11, 2013

Last night, I downloaded a free video converter online and found that my home page is changed into Safehomepage.com. And my new tab page is also changed into Safehomepage.com too. Please help me delete this annoying redirect virus.

Is Safehomepage.com a dangerous virus?

Safehomepage.com is a phony search engine which sneaks into the affected machine to distribute various hazards via browsers. Safehomepage.com virus pretends to be legal search engine and acts as an actual web toolbar in the host machine. When Safehomepage.com virus stays inside, it will always redirect the host machine’s web browsers to its malicious web page or other hazardous web sites.

It will modify browser configurations and can avoid the detection and deletion of legal security tools unless their antivirus is very powerful. Safehomepage.com hides itself in certain Trojan, infection or other malware. Thus the longer such infection keeps itself inside, more vulnerable the random computer will become.

What’s worse, it’s quite difficult for users to delete such pest. In other words, it will easily show itself on the compromised PC again after being removed. Therefore, in order to thoroughly delete Safehomepage.com virus out of your PC, you should adopt the following guides.
