I wrote this article to help you remove 66.com.ua Virus. This 66.com.ua Virus removal guide works for Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer.

The 66.com.ua page is bad news. If you see it take over your browsers, know that you are in trouble. Actually, the page is not the problem. It is only a front. A nasty browser hijacker lurks behind this site. It is your real issue. Both go hand in hand. Seeing 66.com.ua means that the hijacker is already on your machine and it is suing the page to announce its presence. Take that as a warning.

Hijackers don’t make pleasant tenants. They wreak havoc and cause irreversible damage. And the longer they stay, the more problems they cause. That is if you don’t stop them, of course. Because you can. All you have to do is act immediately after realizing your PC is infected. Procrastination will bury you deeper in troubles. Don’t hesitate and act against the pest. No cyber infection should be ignored. As soon as you notice the dubious 66.com.ua site, start looking for the hijacker and delete it upon discovery. The sooner you get rid of it, the better.

When the parasite enters, the mess-making begins. This plague makes different changes to your browsers` settings, thus modifying them to serve crooks. The hijacker`s purpose is to help hackers earn pay-per-click revenue. That’s why you get flooded with tons of ads on daily basis. Each time you click on an ad, crooks make money. And, you risk installing more malware on your computer. The ads the hijacker generates cannot be trusted. Most of them are, without a doubt, corrupted and lead to dangerous pages full of infections. Others may conceal infections directly in them. You can compromise your machine even more with a single click.

The 66.com.ua Virus

We would advise you not to click on anything, of course. And you are probably thinking the same thing. But it is not that easy. The hijacker is sneaky. It only generates ads which will spark your interest. After it enters, the pest studies you to learn what your likes and preferences are. It knows that you have searched for, which page you have bookmarked. It knows everything and is uses this information to display commercials which you will find appealing. Even if this doesn’t work, it has another tactic. Sometimes pop ups appear right under the cursor of your mouse or they move right before you click on the “X” button you still end up clicking on them.

Avoiding the advertisements won`t be an easy task. Aside from them, you are also redirected to numerous suspicious pages. Your entire online experience turns into hell. Surfing the Web is neither fun nor safe anymore. And to top it all, while spying on you, the hijacker may get to your personal and financial data. Then, it will send everything to the crooks who published it. Delete the pest while it is not too late. Use our removal guide at the end of this article and save yourself a ton of issues.

How did you get stuck with 66.com.ua? Well, the page appeared because of the hijacker and the hijacker managed to enter because of you. Because of your negligence, to be exact. You didn’t download it in purpose but the pest asked for permission to enter and you, being distracted and careless, gave it. Before starting to blame yourself, though, know that the parasite did not ask straightforwardly.

66.com.ua used tricks. Tricks like freeware bundling, for instance. This is one of the most popular and effective methods mostly because users tend to throw caution to the wind when installing programs. Next time you install an app, take your time and opt for the Advanced settings in the Setup Wizard instead of the Basic ones. These options allow you to see all the additional programs which are about to be installed on your PC. You can go through them carefully and deselect everything but the original program. All it takes is a few extra minutes to save yourself a ton of future problems.
