How does work?

The hijacker enters your system and sets as your home page and default search engine. The site itself does not look too suspicious, it has a logo and a search engine on it. If you try using the engine, you will get results that are filled with ads and sponsored links. You will not be able to undo these modifications until you remove completely. This makes it similar to other programs of this type that also act in the same manner such as Taplika, Vosteran, Astromenda, Omiga-Plus and more.

Browser settings will not be all that changes after the hijacker gets installed. You will also notice an increased amount of commercial data in your browsers. Pop-ups, in-text links, banners and other adverts will appear on your screen no matter which page you are on. Moreover, you will also notice that your system speed and Internet connection have slowed down. The hijacker may track your cookies, so you should not be surprised that some of the ads look like something that could be useful to you. They are based on your browsing history. That, however, does not mean they are legitimate. We suggest you steer clear from all commercial content and delete as soon as you can.

    none of the anti malware programs is able to remove the stamplive adware from my computer. I’m afraid the only solution will be to go back to factory settings.

    I had price minus ads popping up often in all webpages.It was driving me nuts.! I removed an extension from my browser (Firefox). I started deleting the extensions that I knew were not vital. And no more popups! I do have a couple of malware programs, and they too failed to remove these ads. But removing the extensions from Firefox + the add-ons section its what did the trick! I also did the same thing to google chrome browser, I deleted some add-ons, and extensions as well.
