Home Malware Programs Spyware Safetyeachday.com


Posted: September 27, 2007

Safetyeachday is a computer hijacker that redirects a user's web browser to www.safetyeachday.com, pops up warning messages and a warning bubble from the taskbar announcing the computer is infected with spyware and that the user should download a spyware remover. Safetyeachday only promotes fake anti-spyware products such as AntiVirGear, SpyShredder, WinAntiVirus Pro 2007, Ultimate Cleaner and SecurePCCleaner.

To restore the original default homepage, open IE > go to Tools > Internet Options > Type the URL address of your desired website > Click "Use Current" > click "OK". But restoring your hompepage manually does not necessarily mean that you've gotten rid of the spyware infection that brought on the homepage hijacker. Safetyeachday.com may be a sign that you've been infected with spyware or a trojan.

If, when Internet Explorer starts, you see any pop up windows telling you about a rogue anti-spyware program and how to remove spyware, then you're probably infected with a trojan and you will continue to be hijacked by safetyeachday.com. Sometimes the hijackers prevent you from changing the homepage, or may allow you to temporarily change the homepage only to have safetyeachday.com reappear later.

So what do you do? Scan your system with an anti-spyware program and remove the spyware infections detected.
