Remove click.get-amazing-results.com redirect virus (Uninstall Guide)

Tell your friends:
So, you got the click.get-amazing-results.com browser hijacker and you can't remove it. This can be a sigh of malware or potentially unwanted browser helper object. In most cases, I have to assume that it’s some sort of malicious software, specifically a Trojan horse or a rootkit. The last time a got a computer infected with click.get-amazing-results redirect virus I found like 30 more malware including Trojan ad loader and rather sophisticated rootkit. It can't be a coincidence, right?



There are many variations on browser hijacking but the main idea is very simple: you are being redirected to malicous or spammy websites after conducting a search. Sometimes, click.get-amazing-results.com redirects victims to unexpected websites, you know, it works like a tracking sites. However, sometimes, it simply displays paid and very irrelevant search results or even ads which have nothing to do with your search term. All in all, click.get-amazing-results.com is a pretty direct hijack. And it's annoying as hell.

Trojan download which is responsible for get-amazing-results.com redirects usually modifies the way your system locates servers on the internet. In case of a DNS hijack a different IP address is returned. However, some malware rather than modifying your DNS settings takes a more direct route and injects malicious code into already running processes. Such malware very often infects web browser components and adds malicious browser extensions.

Fixing click.get-amazing-results.com redirect should be fairly easy. Run an up-to-date anti-malware scan. Please note that the website itself isn't malicious. You probably found some other sites claiming that click.get-amazing-results.com is 'malicious' or 'dangerous'. It’s only being used to redirect victims or display paid search results. It's not about the website; it's about your computer being infected with a combination of Trojan horse and probably rootkit. To remove this browser hijacker and malware associated to it, please follow the removal instructions below. Good luck and be safe online!
