How to remove (uninstall) Traffic Exchange

Traffic Exchange is an adware, designed solely to generate traffic to websites. That's no a virus, it doesn't hurt your PC and doesn't steal or corrupt your files, but it is unwanted, and we'll explain why. The traffic counter of each website can tell you, how much people visits it, and how popular is it. The popularity must be directly proportional to quality of displayed content or offered goods, experience and skill of website's creators and tech-support staff and the reliability of the website in general. But the good, reliable websites don't use adware for promotion. Instead of it, the're improving the performance of their staff, improving the quality of content, making the perfect outfit etc. So, what customer are left for Traffic Exchange? The online casinos, fake ForEx brokers, financial pyramids, viral websites and online stores that sell counterfeit goods. The owners of such websites don't want to pay a lot for advertising, so they just buy the services of adware, and annoy us with their stupid ads.

Traffic Exchange

The point most important thing to understand about adware in general and Traffic Exchange in particular is that it doesn't care nor about users, nor about the advertisers that have paid for promotional services. The ads by Traffic Exchange are stupid, annoying and garish; they are displayed on each page, and there are so much of them that user just can't understand what is going on. When you see so much ads you don't think about the websites that they are promoting but just about how to get rid of them. So, even if user clicks on some ads, it occurs accidentally, and after that click he quickly closes the websites and tries further to hide the ads. But even the one accidental click costs money, and if you'll count all tens of thousands of infected computers, and assume that each user makes one click per day - the sum will be impressive. That's how this works, and it's completely legal, because adware installs in proper way: it displays the user agreement and warns the user about all things that it will do on his computer. The user accepts the terms and lets the adware in, because nobody reads the user agreement. Now you know how Traffic Exchange acts and what it wants from you. It's time to remove that trash from your PC!
