What Is Hotivit.net/oiqe?
There is a certain type of adware that creates an entry in the Task Scheduler of the infected computer to open some URL (in this case http://hotivit.net/oiqe/) on the default browser and repeat that action every 5 (10, 20, etc.) minutes. As a result, new tabs open on the default browser periodically with the URL hotivit.net/oiqe which then redirects the tab to some ad, a betting site, a “you have a virus” page or another suspicious website. This happens even if the browser wasn’t open originally. In some cases instead of new tabs popping up users get an error message stating that hotivit.net wasn’t found. This adware is usually distributed via shady sites offering pirated software. You may follow this step-by-step guide to get rid of the adware and stop hotivit.net/oiqe pop-ups.
