Over time, the numbers of offers and advertising increase and if you want to delete MyShopMate - you can’t do it, because the virus restores itself after deletion.

The viruses that show you ads and interfere to use the Internet can be divided on two groups: adware and hijackers. The first type strikes the whole system, placing banners and other promotional stuff in the browser and on the desktop. The group № 2 acts exactly in the browsers by substituting the search results, showing incorrect results and sending you to harmful web-pages. Both types of viruses use artful lists of the options and benefits to make you believe in their usefulness. The state of your machine is getting more lamentable according to the time that malware had dwelled on it. If you'll leave MyShopMate unattended over time, you will see that your system is entirely clogged with all kinds of strange, useless or even really dangerous viruses. Fatal errors, low speed of response, reboots, spontaneous shutdowns and the poor performance of your PC will become very frequent. When the workstation arrives into suchlike state, users start searching for a problem, and realize that it was desirable to uninstall the advertising program at the beginning, or do not use it at all.


There are some things which need to be performed, before MyShopMate can do its job. The highly important thing is to set a task of installation in case of removal, and to obtain updates from the web-site of its developers. After that, adware starts to alter the settings of browsers. When the homepage and default search engine are switched, you'll see the viral website in every browser and on each tab. Then, adware switches your browser settings, related to advertisement. All prevalent browsers nowadays have a function that hides the banners, pop-ups, unwanted advertising and other sorts of hype. The dangerous software turns these services off, and you understand that the quantity of advertising in all new tabs is extremely increased. In addition to that the amount of advertising has increased significantly, its quality became really low. In some cases, people just can’t browse the Internet, because when they try to view the certain website, MyShopMate redirects them to the suspicious one. Why virus does this? All deeds of harmful software are aimed at one purpose: to coerce the user to make a click. Those links may lead to the different web-sites. Some of them provide goods, some - offer free content or something else. The only thing to understand about these web-pages is: they give profit exclusively to their creators. There's no need to specify that any action or load on the website, displayed you by hijacker, can cause sad effects, for example - getting a virus. As you can see, MyShopMate is harmless in itself, but it permits you to do things that will cause harm.

How to protect the computer?

There is one significant thing that you should know about computer virus: how not to let it enter the computer. Hijackers use plenty of ways, but they all can be separated on three basic groups:

  • Download from a dangerous website. When you are on a web-site, you see a confirmation to download few tools that can greatly assist you in something. The promises of suchlike programs are ordinary, they are: the enhancement of Internet browsing, showing the information about beneficial discounts on the Web, automatic download of all drivers and updates for your devices, providing the latest free content such as games, music and movies, the execution of specific actions in Facebook. If on any website you receive a suggestion to install the software with similar functions - it is really malicious, and the site itself is unsafe.
  • Hijackers might be attached to good software. If you have ever installed the toll-free programs, you know what that means. You install the program, and in one of the windows you see the confirmation on the installation of the marvelous media player, browser, the additional add-on for it, anti-virus, and, maybe, some another weird, but highly "efficient" tools. There's no need to make a decision because the installation has already been verified, and in some cases, it is very complicated to cancel the installation of useless software.
  • The straight installation by user. Clever written description of the software and its useful (and nonexistent) features misguides the user, and he downloads the hijacker.

The e-mails are also often used, to distribute harmful programs but it is rarely used by adware. We suppose that when you're reading these words, MyShopMate will be totally eliminated from the machine. If you choose the deletion in manual manner, you should know how to determine that your computer has a virus.

  • The system boots very slowly. The tools that run at startup are, most often, the reason of slow boot. Inspect the taskbar, and search for useless programs.
  • Hype is everywhere. If the numbers of hype has grown up noticeably - it is, most likely, the unwanted software.
  • Critical failures while using programs, restart or shutdown of a laptop without your permission.
  • The emergence of the strange software in the system. If the program appears on your computer without your resolution - it's, nothing else than the adware.

If you see one of these symptoms in your system - you need to make a total scan with assistance of AV-tool, or manually get rid of all the undesired and dangerous programs from your system. Be careful on the Net, track the condition of your computer, and it will always be clean and efficient.
