What is Go My Media?

The Malwarebytes research team has determined that Go My Media is a browser hijacker. These so-called "hijackers" manipulate your browser(s), for example to change your startpage or searchscopes, so that the affected browser visits their site or one of their choice. This one uses a proxy to displays advertisements.

How do I know if my computer is affected by Go My Media?

You may see this entry in your list of installed software:

How did Go My Media get on my computer?

Browser hijackers use different methods for distributing themselves. This particular one was bundled with other software.

How do I remove Go My Media?

Our program Malwarebytes Anti-Malware can detect and remove this potentially unwanted program.
  • Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware to your desktop.

Is there anything else I need to do to get rid of Go My Media?
  • No, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware removes Go My Media completely.
How would the full version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware help protect me?
