Info

Tools for promotional purposes are a separate group of viruses, called adware and hijackers. Adware affect the whole computer, placing banners and advertisements on each web-site and even if the browser is closed. The group № 2 acts only in the browsers by substituting the results of your search queries, providing fake output and redirecting you to viral websites. All of these kinds of viruses are accompanied with detailed descriptions of their features, and the customer supposes that they are useful. However, the longer such programs will dwell in your system, the more pitiable will be the condition of your PC. In the end, you'll realize that your system is wholly overwhelmed by various strange, useless or even harmful programs. The poor performance of your laptop, fatal failures, reboots, low response speed and spontaneous shutdowns will appear every day.

There are some actions which should be done, before Info can do its job. This is a kit of operations aimed at security against deletion. Immediately after that, adware begins to manipulate browser settings. When the default search engine and the home-page are modified, you'll always see the dangerous website in each browser and on every tab. Then, harmful program changes your browser controls, related to ads. All well-known browsers now have a feature which permits to hide the pop-ups, annoying animations, banners and other sorts of hype. The virus disables these services, and you understand that the amount of advertising in the browser is dramatically increased. In addition, to that the quantity of ads has grown up observably, its quality became really low. If adware lives on the laptop for a long time, man simply can't surf the Internet because of advertising, pop-ups and redirections in browser and sometimes even to use the PC. So, what is the reason of this? The point of these actions is to coerce you to click on the links shown by adware. Viral links may lead to the different websites. Some of them offer goods, some - offer free content or services. The main thing to understand about such web-pages is: they give benefit exclusively to their creators. Any effort to download something from viral website will cause serious problems. As you can see, Info don't cause harm on its own, and it only allows the customer to perform actions that will call issues.

Advantages of different removal methods

 

How to protect the computer?

To prevent infection by such sort of adware in the future, you need to know for sure how Info got on your laptop. This can occur through three basic methods:

  • Download from a viral web-page. When you are on a website, you are shown a confirmation to download some programs, which can seriously help you in some things. The advantages of these programs are usual, they are: the implementation of certain tasks in Twitter, providing the newest unpaid media-content such as games, music and movies, the enhancement of Internet browsing, automated download of each update or driver for your gear, giving the info about best discounts on the Internet. If on some website you find a suggestion to download the tool with such functions - it is completely malicious, and the web-page itself is unreliable.
  • Download in bundles with free software. Almost each unpaid tool allows you to install something aside from the tool that you want. You install the tool, and in one of the windows you see the suggestion of the installation of the anti-virus, browser, the additional toolbar for it, brilliant file manager, and, maybe, a pair of different weird, but extremely "efficient" tools. The installation is already verified, and if you click "OK", the installation starts, and you’ll get 3-4 unknown tools, instead of needed one.
  • Sometimes user installs harmful programs voluntarily. It is also possible, because when the customers read an attractive specification of the program, they think that it is really effective.

The e-mails are also often used, to spread unwanted programs but it is rarely used by hijackers. If you came to these words, we think, that hijacker is already eliminated. The dependable antiviruses understand to locate malware, but if you prefer the uninstall in manual manner - you need to know all red flags of virus.

  • Operating System boots extremely slowly. The tools that run at startup are, very often, the reason of long boot. Look at the taskbar, and uninstall the suspicious tools from Control Panel.
  • Pop-ups are everywhere. If the numbers of advertising increased dramatically - that is, most likely, the unwanted software.
  • Critical failures while using programs, reboot or shutdown of a workstation without your resolution.
  • The appearance of the strange programs in the system. If the tool appears on your machine without your permission - it is, most likely, dangerous.

If you see one of these red flags on your machine - you should do a total scan through anti-virus, or manually uninstall all the unwanted and harmful software from your system. Be careful on the Web, watch at the state of your machine, and it will anytime be fast and functional.
