Useful Program is an adware. Such programs differ from usual viruses in that their actions cannot be determined as exactly viral. Useful Program might look a helpful tool which exhibits you the best deals on the Net, adds marvelous functions to your browser, and does different functions. Over time, the numbers of pop-ups and advertisement increase and if you'll try to uninstall Useful Program - you can’t do it, because Useful Program can reinstall itself after disposal.

In this article we will answer these questions, and give you the complete information on Useful Program.

Useful Program

The viruses which show you pop-ups and interfere to use the Internet can be separated on two kinds: adware and hijackers. Adware affect the whole system, putting links and advertising on each new tab in browser and on the desktop. The group № 2 acts exclusively in the browsers by substituting the search results, providing fake results and sending you to harmful web-sites. All of these series of malware are supplemented with thorough specifications of their options, and the user thinks that they are reliable. However, the longer you use such programs, the more lamentable will be the condition of your machine. If you'll leave virus without supervision over time, you will notice that the laptop is entirely overwhelmed by all kinds of unwanted, useless or even harmful viruses. Low speed of response, the poor performance of the machine, reboots, spontaneous shutdowns and critical failures will become very frequent. When the workstation arrives into such condition, customers start looking for a solution, and understand that it was necessary to remove the advertising program in the first minutes of infection, or do not install it at all.


There are few actions that should be done, before Useful Program can do its job. This is a kit of operations aimed at protection against deletion. Immediately after that, malicious software begins to manipulate the settings of browsers. When the pre-set search engine and the homepage are changed, you'll always see the dangerous web-page in every browser and on each tab. Then, Useful Program varies your browser options, responsible for ads. The browsers nowadays have a function which hides the intrusive ads, pop-ups, banners and other types of hype. Useful Program turns these features off, and you begin to see that the amount of ads in all browsers is dramatically high. Apart from the fact that adware forces you to see all the advertisement on the Web, doesn't matter are they reliable or not, Useful Program shows you its own hype. In some cases, people just can’t browse the Net, because when they try to go to the specified web-site, adware redirects him to the suspicious one. So, what is the reason of this? All actions of hijacker are serving the one object: to coerce you to make a click. Viral links may lead to the different sites. Some of them offer goods, some - offer toll-free software or services. The main thing to realize about these websites is: they provide benefit exclusively to their creators. Any effort to purchase anything from this web-page will cause great issues. As you can see, Useful Program is harmless in itself, but it permits the man to do things which will cause harm.

How to protect the computer?

There is one important thing that you need to know about computer virus: how not to let it enter the computer. Viruses use a lot of ways, but we'll separate them on three main groups:

  • Infection through an untrusted website. When you're on a web-page, you are shown a confirmation to install some programs that may greatly support you in some things. The features of such programs are common, they are: search for the newest toll-free content such as music, games and movies, giving the info about beneficial offers on the Net, the improvement of Internet surfing, the implementation of definite actions in Twitter, self download of each update or driver for your hardware. All of these options are already built into the browsers, or is in the list of Windows services, so, it means that such tools are absolutely futile, and the web-site, which disseminates them is, most likely, malicious.
  • Hijackers can be attached to good tools. Practically every unpaid tool allows you to install something except the tool that you wish. You download the program, and during the installation there is a pop-up with the proposal to get the miraculous file manager, browser, the additional add-on for it, special software, and, maybe, a pair of different weird, but extremely "effective" tools. There's no need to make a decision because the installation has already been confirmed, and in most cases, it is really difficult to abort the installation of undesired software.
  • Sometimes user downloads dangerous software by his own will. Carefully written specification of the product and its magnificent (and nonexistent) features deceives the customer, and he installs the virus.

The penetration via e-mail is also extremely popular, but this way is used most of the cases by ransomware and viruses, and not by adware. If you came to these words, we believe, that hijacker is already gone. The well anti-viruses know how to recognize a virus, but if you prefer the uninstall in manual mode - you should know all signs of infection.

  • OS boots really slowly. The processes that turn on at startup are, in most cases, the cause of tardy boot. At the taskbar you can see all currently working tools, and decide which are good and which aren't.
  • Hype is everywhere. If the numbers of advertising has grown up notably - it is, most likely, virus.
  • Critical failures when using tools, restart or shutdown of a machine without your permit.
  • You notice many software which you've never seen before. If the tool shows up in the system without your consent - it is, most likely, undesired.

If you see one of the mentioned above symptoms on your PC - you should make an overall scan with assistance of special tool, or manually delete all the undesired and harmful tools from your system. Be cautious on the Net, watch for the symptoms of infection on the machine, and it will anytime be fast and effective.
