What is Containertag.js

You have trouble during online search? Your browser is behaving strangely, and you do not know what's going on with it? The amount of advertising on all sites greatly increased, and it became obsessive and suspicious? All of these signs are symptoms of infection by an advertising program that cannot be ignored. In this article we will tell you how to remove Containertag.js from your computer, and protect the system from the intrusion of suchlike programs.

Containertag.js belongs to the type of programs, called adware. Its main task is spam. In fact, these programs are called advertising only because of the nature of the materials distributed, because the actions of these programs do not bring any benefit to the advertised websites. Tens of thousands of users around the world every minute see advertising of some website, and begin to hate it instead of being interested. In addition, the number of advertisements published by Containertag.js is very large, and it literally fills the entire screen, making it difficult to use the Internet and covering entire websites. Some users first click on the links provided, but quickly saw the content of the sites and understand that all links lead to absolutely useless, or even dangerous pages. Most referrals occur accidentally, at a time when the user tries to hide an ad.

So, Containertag.js is a program that gets on the computer without permission, shows the hype and provides links to third-grade sites. In addition, the program gives sites an advantage only formally, but in fact - users only get angry and try to get back to the proven pages. If the program is not popular among users and is not useful for advertisers, then what is the meaning of it ?! The meaning lies in three short words, and these words are pay per click. Advertising on the Internet is paid on a simple principle: the advertiser pays for each click-through banner ads. Containertag.js shows the user hundreds of ads a day, and trying to hide them, user clicks, thereby putting a few cents in pocket to Containertag.js developers. Also, being on the user's computer, the program can collect statistics of requests and visits, which then can be sold to real advertising agencies. As you can see, there is no sense to keep this program on your computer, and the best way is to remove it permanently.
