What is Genieo?

The Malwarebytes research team has determined that Genieo 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 also displays advertisements.

How do I know if my computer is affected by Genieo?

You may see these entries in your list of installed software:

and these warnings during install:

this new startpage:

and you will see these icons in your startmenu, taskbar and on your desktop:

How did Genieo get on my computer?

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

How do I remove Genieo?

Our program Malwarebytes Anti-Malware can detect and remove this potentially unwanted program.
  • Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware to your desktop.
  • Double-click mbam-setup-{version}.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
  • At the end, be sure a check-mark is placed next to:
    Launch Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • Once the program has loaded, select Scan Now. Or select the Threat Scan from the Scan menu.
  • If an update is available, it will be implemented before the rest of the scanning procedure.
  • When the scan is complete, make sure that all Threats are selected, and click Remove Selected.
  • Restart your computer when prompted to do so.
Is there anything else I need to do to get rid of Genieo?
  • No, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware removes Genieo completely.
  • This PUP also installs the Java browser plugin if it was not pre-installed. It is up to the user if he wants to remove it or not.
How would the full version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware help protect me?

We hope our application and this guide have helped you eradicate this hijacker.

As you can see below the full version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware would have protected you against the Genieo hijacker. It would have warned you before the application could install itself, giving you a chance to stop it before it became too late.
