A browser hijacker is a malware program that changes the webpages your computer‘s browser opens to other than you wanted to visit. This might be done by malware process itself or changing browser settings. Usually it affects webpages you visit most often, e.g. home page and/or search pages, redirecting from them to their customers‘pages and subsequently generating a bigger trafic to the latter. For example, Happili redirect virus instead of your search browser‘s results opens its webpage and makes it almost impossible to complete any search. A more serious damage is when a browser hijacker adds bookmarks for pornographic websites to your own bookmark collection and generates pornographic pop-ups. Such redirects may lead to the pages with more viruses and infect your computer with malwares like Trojan or Rootkit.
Your computer may be infected with a browser hijacker either with or without your permission. It may be installed as part of freeware installation. Most likely this unwanted program is mentioned in the user agreement but not identified as a browser hijacker. Of course, most of the computer users do not read such agreements therefore they install the hijacker without realising about it. Without a user permission it might be installed via an infected e-mail, a file share or a drive by download. Happili redirect is a good example of a virus that infects a user‘s computer without his/her permission.
To protect your computer from this malware you should follow the general rules of safe computer usage: read user agreements carefully and be cautious about downloads and e-mails from unknown addresses. Additionally, you should install and use an antivirus program that offers real time protection.
But what if your computer is already infected and webpage browsing is annoing because of pop-ups, slower internet connection than usual, redirecting to the addresses that you are not interested at all? That depends on type of hijacker. Some hijackers can be removed manually easily. However, for some it is nearly imposible. Each browser hijacker has different manual removal instructions and a mistake might damage computer. In any case, you should identify the exact cause of hijacked browser by searching for more information or scanning with anti-malware programs.

Email or electronic mail is one of the most popular ways to exchange information nowadays. The system of email is based on a model where email server computer systems store the messages of the senders and forward them to the proper recipients. One of the biggest advantages of email comparing to phone calls or other media of communication is that both sender and receiver don’t have to work on the same schedule. The email can be checked any time, independently from sender. It is also much cheaper way to exchange the information. Talking about its disadvantages, email is called a push technology. The sender completely controls who receives the information and this often causes receiving unwanted information. Despite that, email remains the most reliable medium to exchange information all over the world.

If you are able to send the email but it doesn’t arrive, your email can be queued. In this case check File or Edit menu for any queues. You might need to send all queued mail manually. If you don’t receive external emails but are able to send them, try to send one to yourself. If you can receive it, it means your server can’t access the Internet. You should wait for couple of hours but if the problem doesn’t go away, you should contact your Internet provider for assistance.
One of the most annoying things using email is getting spam emails. Spam is usually an email with commercial content or frauds, including computer viruses. There are several ways to block spam messages or at least to reduce the amount of them. You should be very selective about sharing your email to everyone. If your email will be revealed by the third parties they undoubtedly going to send you spam. Never reply to any spam emails even if they give you an option to remove yourself from their mailing list.
