[bannerTop]

Welcome to our Biaoji “Virus” removal guide. The following instructions will aid you in removing the unwanted software from your PC.

Programs of the Browser Hijacker type can be a real pain in the neck if allowed to remain on one’s PC for extended periods of time. A typical Hijacker is able to invade the user’s Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or IE browser, add to it new toolbars and search engines, change its homepage and cause sudden and unpleasant redirects, as well as have other negative effects on which we will focus in a minute. Recently, a program named Biaoji “Virus” has been released that seems to possess traits similar to a Browser Hijacker, which is why it is considered to fall under this category of unwanted programs. You are now about to be given detailed information regarding what the purpose of Biaoji “Virus” is, how it functions and what other problems it can potentially cause if it gets onto your machine. In case it has already gotten there, we can help you uninstall it and get rid of what it might have left behind after the uninstallation. Just go to our removal guide right below this article after you finish reading here and follow the instructions.

What is its goal?
