AdBlock Browser Hijacker Information
Elevated threats are usually threats that fall into the range of adware in which data about a user's habits are tracked and sent back to a server for analysis without your consent or knowledge.
||Adblock is a popup blocker that does not use adware popups, however it does hijack the Internet Explorer error page.
Adblock modifies the Internet Explorer error page so when a user mistypes a URL and would normally receive a 404 error page, the adware sponsored search page displays instead. It also modifies the Search Assistant and Search Bar pages to http://adblock.linkz.com/abho/bandsearch.abs and the Search Page to http://linkz.com/. All modifications are performed without the user's consent.
||Browser Hijacker - Adware is generally software that displays advertisements. Some advertisers may covertly install adware on your system and generate a stream of unsolicited advertisements that can clutter your desktop and affect your productivity. The advertisements may also contain pornographic or other material that you might find inappropriate. The extra processing required to track you or to display advertisements can tax your computer and hurt your system performance.
