How to remove (uninstall) VOF

VOF is the advertising-oriented software which resources are used by shady businessmen to promote their web-pages. The advertising-oriented utilities can be divided on two camps: adware and hijackers. They have just one significant difference: adware prefers to display ads on each web-site, and hijackers are trying to redirect you to the malicious websites from the good ones. The most widespread method of infection for these programs is to feign a good program. One of the significant problems for advertising program's developers is to describe all options in the most unclear manner, to confuse you. Better finding of bargains and sells, notifications about recent doings of your subscribers in Twitter, fast search and other stupid functions – that’s what such utilities propose. In fact, they cannot perform even these things and simply flood you with advertisement.

VOF

Many people don't believe that VOF isn't dangerous for your PC. VOF can't even be called malicious, because it does not interfere with the work of programs, it does not destroy information and does not inflict direct harm to the system. Promotional programs fully rely on their victims, giving them the opportunity to harm their PCs. With help of ads, promotional program creates a flow of users to determined web-sites and makes hundreds of dollars for its makers. The owners of promoted websites pay to hackers for advertisement and boosting services, which gives a stimulus to make new species of adware. This system is very hard to break and advertising tools will do its job until each and every user will receive a negative experience with adware and hijackers, and stop installing these kinds of tools.

After penetrating the PC and installation VOF, the only thing that bothers VOF is advertisement. The powerful flood of ads begins to invade browser and desktop, making web-browsing completely impossible. The conventional advertisement is placed in especial areas, but the advertisement of VOF could arise in the middle of the screen and interfere to use the website, without having a "close" button. Any action with the ad unit can call the viral infection. If we're talking about browser hijacker infection victim also suffers from continuous redirects to infected sites. You can get rid of ads only by removing hijacker from your machine ASAP.
