HijackIn general, hijack refers to taking control over something and causing it to do something else. The most common type of hijacking is when malware infects your computer and redirects your web browser, homepage, or search engine to a malicious site or somewhere you don't want to be. When a computer becomes infected usually installing a program such as Malwarebytes can remove and fix the infection. See the link below for additional suggestions and help.
