If you haven't experienced this kind of programs before - trust us, this software really must not be kept in the system. This unwanted software has no useful functions, as far as it was developed only to earn money for online-criminals, and to irritate the average users. Do you notice the increased quantity of ads on all websites, or the change of homepage? Have you faced the massive slowdown of system’s and browsing speed, or strange search results and frequent redirections to the untrusted web-sites? The red flags which are listed above are saying that the machine is infested with some sort of adware, and this program must be uninstalled.

What is Amules

The advertising tools aren't made for fun, and every virus has exact goals. Unfortunately, if you think that the description of Amules is true is really helpful - you're wrong. Typically, the description of every malicious program declares that it will be super useful. 90% of adware state to help in web-browsing. Assistance in the download of recent movies, music or games, search for sales, deals and discounts online and observing the activity of friends in social networks - these are the most spread features of advertising tools. It might seem very nice, but if you think about it, you understand that all features that are declared have long been implemented in the basic functionality of all browsers or social networks. Haven't you thought about why are all adware descriptions so vague? The "better", "safer" or "faster" web-browsing is a excellent example of suchlike function, since these options are really blurry and nearly impossible to observe. So, adware do not do anything, and is just consuming space on your hard drive? No, they got one main task and it is to trick the users and to receive money from online advertising.

 

There is a perception in the Web that almost all viruses have no specific task. It's pretty reasonable, didn't it? Web-scammer knows that out there somewhere is an operator which is endeavoring to uninstall his adware right now, and the feeling is really good! In fact, any harmful program has their feature, and this feature helps scammers to earn money. It is difficult to guess why advertising program shows so much ads, but since you understand it, the scheme looks pretty simple. All these ads are shown to make money from referrals. Many users know that advertisement in browsers is paid on the special system, called pay per click, which means that the client pays for every referral from the pop-up to the webpage. All adware's efforts are targeted at convincing you pass the link. Actually if user is not interested in any of the offers - you still click on the link, to hide an uncomfortable annoying ad. Advertisers don't care in which way the click was made, and online-criminals will obtain their money both for the decent click and for the random one. Although the price isn’t big, do not forget about the number of victims! Gullible operator can think that suchlike ads are good, and try to find something worthwhile among adware offers, making hundreds of clicks daily. Based on our data, the quantity of victims of Amules is at least 50 000, and if each of them is making five to ten clicks per day, the hacker's earnings don't seem so insignificant.

Methods to remove Amules

By the way, there is one more feature in Amules that in the long term can bring serious issues with your machine. We speak about that Amules can shift browser settings in order to advertise more efficiently which makes it very defenseless to all threats. Advertisement software aim to switch three things: homepage, the filtering of annoying ads and default search engine. Thus, while adware is in the computer, the browser is very assailable, and all kinds of harmful programs might pass through it to the system, which is what happens when user starts to randomly click on suspicious links given by adware. The adware will clog your system, because user helps it to do so. To avoid this you have to uninstall Amules from the machine ASAP.

We know two principal ways of advertising tool spread: the placement on the hacked websites and installation in bundles with free programs. Infected sites are really easy to recognize: they appear on the last pages in search, and they intrusively suggest to buy something. Except that, pay attention to the notifications of your anti-viral tool and browser. To protect yourself from the infection through the second technique, you should attentively monitor the installation of all programs. Bundled installation method is based on user's trustfulness and the bad habit to click OK without reading. User installs some program and in one of the windows during the process appears an offer to install some extra software. In some variants you just cannot decline the installation, and in some - there's no sign of additional software. Of course, all software except the desired one will be meaningless or even dangerous. According to this, if you see the choice between “safe installation” and “installation for experienced users” – pick the second option. This will allow you to pick which software you wish to install and what you do not.
