Do you know what Hatchiho is?
Hatchiho is an adware application from SuperWeb LLC family of potentially unwanted programs. It is practically identical to such apps as TopicTorch, NetCrawl, Gooternet and many others. You most probably will not notice that something is not right for a long period. However, if you see a flood of commercial ads whenever you browse online shopping sites, you should scan your computer for adware.

Technically, Hatchiho should install extensions to Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer web browsers. The official homepage at hatchiho.com states that this plug-in is compatible with all major browsers in the market. Nevertheless, browser developers are seemingly aware of the fact that no good can come out of this program – the newest versions of Google Chrome are no longer compatible with Hatchiho. Thus, the extension can only be installed on Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.
You will most probably not notice a notification that informs you about the oncoming additional software installation. Since Hatchiho cannot be downloaded at the official website, it usually comes bundled with a number of other third-party applications. When users are keen on installing a particular program, they seldom notice additional messages on the installation wizard. In fact, users quite often skip important installation steps that would otherwise allow them to avoid setting up unwanted applications.
The main reason you have to delete Hatchiho is not the commercial advertisements that you see every time you access BestBuy, Amazon, eBay or any other shopping website. The ads are simply annoying nuisances. The problem is Hatchiho ads content. This adware application does not review what kinds of links get embedded into the ads. In other words, it is not responsible for third-party content security, and you click those ads, you do it at your own risk.
If you want to avoid personal information leak or potential malware infection, you have to uninstall Hatchiho and other related applications immediately. Remove the program via Control Panel and then delete the extension from Mozilla Firefox manually. Eventually, scan the PC with SpyHunter free scanner to determine what other programs must be deleted from the system because you are bound to have more than just one adware app on board.
When all the potential threats are removed, get yourself a licensed antispyware application that would safeguard your system against other unwanted intruders in the future.
