DNAV.com Browser Redirect – Activity and Puprose
DNAV.com may end up on your computer as a result of being added together with the installation of another software. Usually, such programs are downloaded for free on the web, and they include free media players, file converters and several other types of applications. The main reason for those apps existing on your computer is you may have downloaded such a free program and the software, causing DNAV.com ads may be added in the install process.
It is not easy to detect programs like DNAV.com on your computer, and the main reason for that is they are offered somewhere in the installation steps in other installers. There, they may lie hidden in the Customized or Advanced install modes. And if you happen to detect these programs, you may start seeing them be offered as a ‘free extra’ to your current installation.
Whatever the case may be, once the DNAV.com browser redirect is added to your computer, it may drop its program files and activate them to run as processes in the background of your computer. The outcome of this could be that they may modify Google Chrome, Firefox, Edge, and other browsers so that you see a lot of ads. Your home page, new tab page and default search pages may also be changed for that exact same reason. And this is not done just by DNAV.com. Other browser redirect viruses we have detected that act similar to it, include Luckhours.com, MyPDFSearch and TigerMovieSearch.
The ads that you may see as a result of this nasty software may not only lead to DNAV.com. They could also be of the following types:

- Ad-supported search results that appear when you search for something.
These ads cannot be dangerous on their own. You could however be led to sites via those adverts that are very risky for your computer. Such websites could belong to scammers and even push a virus on your computer.
