Adware, such as NotToTrack became highly prevalent last time. These programs differ from normal viruses in that their doing cannot be identified as really harmful. There are many promises announced and the functions listed on the website of this tool, but do you actually think, that you can trust them?

NotToTrack

The viruses which show you pop-ups and interfere to use the Internet can be divided on two kinds: adware and hijackers. The first group strikes the whole system, placing links and advertising on every web-page and on the desktop. The second group acts exclusively in the browsers by manipulating the search results, showing unreliable results and sending you to infected websites. All of these kinds of programs are supplemented with explicit specifications of their options, and the user decides that they are good. The condition of your system is getting more unstable in direct proportion to the time that NotToTrack had lived in it. In the end, you'll see that the PC is wholly overwhelmed by all kinds of undesired, useless or even really dangerous software. Restarts, the poor performance of your machine, spontaneous shutdowns, fatal failures and low speed of response will appear every day. When the computer arrives into such state, people begin to look for an answer, and understand that it was desirable to delete the virus in the first hours of infection, or do not download it at all.

 

After the infection NotToTrack performs a series of actions aimed at protection against deletion, and to prepare for action. This is a kit of measures aimed at defense against elimination. The browser is the secondary object. Search system, and home-page are altered. Browser shortcut properties are varied and the services that refer to the amount of hype are turned off. The browsers nowadays have a function which hides the unwanted ads, banners, pop-ups and other types of hype. Adware switches these functions off, and you understand that the quantity of ads in the browser is dramatically increased. Besides the fact that you are getting all the advertisement on the Net, doesn't matter are they worthy or not, NotToTrack exhibits you its own advertising windows and banners. If the hijacker lives on the computer for 5-7 days, user simply can't browse the Web because of pop-ups, ads and redirections in browser and sometimes even to turn on the computer. So, what is the reason of this? The meaning of these actions is to coerce you to click on the links shown by malware. Viral links may lead to the different sites. Some of them provide goods, some - suggest toll-free programs or services. The only thing to understand about such web-pages is: they provide benefit exclusively to their developers. Any try to get anything from this site will call serious problems. As you can see, NotToTrack don't cause damage on its own, but it allows the user to perform actions that will cause harm.

How to protect the computer?

There is one significant thing that you must know about any virus: how not to let it enter the computer. This happens via three basic ways:

  • Infection through a suspicious web-site. Some web-pages spread the adware and aren't even hiding it. Such tools have the confined list of features: the fulfillment of certain actions in the social networks, showing the newest free media-content such as games, movies and music, self installation of all updates and drivers for your devices, search for most profitable deals on the Net, the acceleration of Net surfing. Any such function is already integrated into the browsers, or is in the list of Windows services, so, it means that these software are simply worthless, and the web-site, which propagates them is, probably, malicious.
  • Download in the package with reliable programs. If you often use the free software, you know what that means. You install the software, and then you see the window with the proposal to install the special program, super-useful file manager, browser, the new add-on for it, and, maybe, few another weird, but very "useful" tools. There's no need to decide anything because the all fields are already filled, and in most cases, it will be really difficult to abort the installation of unwanted software.
  • The straight download by user. Clever composed specification of the software and its brilliant (and nonexistent) features misguides the customer, and he sets up the program.

The e-mails are used very often, to distribute viruses but it is rarely used by adware. We suppose that if you're reading this paragraph of the guide, NotToTrack will be totally eliminated from your computer. If you prefer the deletion in manual manner, you should know how to realize that your laptop has a virus.

  • Slow boot of Windows. Most of the adware, during the installation, tune themselves to turn on at startup, regardless of whether you need it or not. On the taskbar you can see all currently launched tools, and decide the ones that are good and which are not.
  • Hype is everywhere. If the quantity of advertising increased notably - it is, most likely, hijacker or adware.
  • Critical faults when using software, restart or shutdown of a workstation without your resolution.
  • The appearance of the bizarre software on the computer. If the tool emerges on the PC without your resolution - it's, nothing else than the malware.

If you see one of the described above symptoms on your machine - you should perform an overall scan with use of removal software, or manually uninstall all the undesired and malicious tools from your computer. Don't believe in everything you see on the Internet, look for the symptoms of malware on your PC, and it will be ready for anything.
