If you haven't experienced suchlike software before - trust us, this tool surely isn't the one to keep on your PC. We are saying so because this suspicious software not only brings troubles during web-surfing, but might initiate a serious adware infection of your machine. Do you mention the huge amount of ads on each website, or the switched homepage? Have you suffered of the total retardation of PC’s and browsing speed, or fake search results and constant redirections to the untrusted web-pages? The signs which are described above tell us one thing: the system is infested by some sort of advertising software, and this software must be uninstalled.

What is ScreenShared

Scammers don't develop adware just to annoy you, and each adware has exact aims. However, if you think that the description of ScreenShared is true is really helpful - you're wrong. Commonly, the specification of every malicious program states that it is highly useful. 99% of adware state that they can support in web-browsing. Help in the search for recent games, music or movies, performing some functions in Twitter and search for discounts, deals and sales online - that's the functions that 95% of adware declare to perform. The first thing you need to do when you're going to install any program - to figure out, is it really useful? Haven't you thought about why the functions of adware are so vague? The "better", "safer" or "faster" search on the Internet is a excellent example of suchlike feature, as these options are very blurry and nearly impossible to observe. Does this mean that advertising software are completely useless, and just take up space on your hard drive? No, they got one important function and it is to trick you and to make money on ads.

 

We don't understand where it came from but now many users think that hackers develop the viruses with no particular reason. It makes sense, right? Web-scammer knows that out there somewhere is an operator that is trying to remove his dangerous program right now, and the feeling is really good! In fact, each hazardous program has specific function, and it is, generally, associated with earnings. For example, the incessant showing of useless ads on every page isn't an accident. All this advertising is generated to obtain money from clicks. Some people know that browser ads are paid on the pay-per-click system. It means that the advertiser pays for each referral from the ad to the webpage. All adware's actions are aimed at convincing you pass the link. Even if you don't take interest in any of the suggestions - the click might still be performed, in order to close an unwanted annoying banner. Each referral is worth the money, based on the type of ads it can be worth up to 5 cents and sometimes even more. Despite the payment isn’t large, do not neglect the amount of infected computers! Trustful user can think that suchlike ads are trustworthy, and try to find something worthwhile among these proposals, making dozens of clicks every day. According to our information, the number of victims of ScreenShared is counted on hundreds of thousands of customers, and if each of them is doing ten to twenty referrals daily, the fraudster's profit don't seem so insignificant.

Methods to remove ScreenShared

Advertising program modifies the web-address of the start page and the default search engine, and also disables options which are responsible for blocking of advertisements and for prevention of suspicious downloads. Thus, when advertising tool is within the PC, the browser is extremely assailable, and many harmful software can use it to enter the system, which is what happens when user starts to randomly click on malicious links shown by adware. The viruses will clog your system, because each click on the link, shown by adware invites one more adware onto the computer.

Hackers use two primary ways of advertising tool distribution: the placement on the hacked websites and bundled installation with good programs. Dangerous websites are very easy to identify: they are on the last pages of search, and they intrusively offer to buy something. Besides that, the browser and anti-viral tool will show you notification, if the web-site is suspicious. The bundled installation way isn't related to websites: you must be aware of it only if you are installing some programs. Bundled installation is simple: advertising software is added to installers of useful tools. You install some program and the pop-up window during the process appears a suggestion to download some extra tools. All fields are pre-checked, and if user clicks "OK" he installs at 2-3 tools instead of one. Most likely, all software except the wanted one will be meaningless or even hazardous. According to this, when you see the choice between “recommended installation” and “partial installation” – choose the second option. Keep this in mind each time you install new software - and your PC will be noticeably cleaner.
