The symptoms that are listed above tell us one thing: the PC is infested with some sort of adware, and this software has to be uninstalled.

What is DragonBoost

All programs have their aims, and DragonBoost isn't an exception. But, if you think that the description of DragonBoost is true is really useful - you're wrong. Typically, the specification of adware promises that it will be highly helpful. Most of suchlike tools declare to help in the search for anything in the Internet. Performing some functions in social networks, help in the search for latest music, games or movies and search for discounts, sales and deals in the Web - that's the functions that 95% of advertising tools state to carry out. The most important thing you need to do if you're about to download some software - to think, is it really helpful? Haven't you thought about why are all adware descriptions so vague? The "better", "faster" or "safer" search on the Internet is a pure example of suchlike functions, since these parameters are really vague and nearly impossible to trace. So, advertising programs are completely useless, and is just consuming space on your hard drive? Of course not!! They perform a very important function, - to let online scammers to earn thousands of dollars per day on unsuspecting users.

 

There is a perception on the Internet that most of malicious programs are created just "for fun". Viruses slow down your PC, interfere with the work of certain software, and hackers like it so much that they are willing to spend many hours, creating pointless programs. In fact, all dangerous programs have specific feature, and it is, in most cases, associated with money. It is weird that adware generates so much ads, but when you understand it, the scheme appears really simple. All this advertising is generated to earn money on referrals. Some people know that advertising in Internet is paid on the special system, called pay per click, which means that the advertiser pays for every transition from the banner to the webpage. All advertising software's actions are targeted at persuading you click on the ads. Actually if you don't take interest in hacker's propositions - you might click on advertising, at least to hide an inconvenient irritating banner. The system doesn't want to know in which way the clicks were done, and hackers will receive their payment both for the normal referral and for the undesired one. Here we see how numbers defeat quality, as hackers create a lot of trashy advertising programs that spam with annoying ads. Trusting man can think that suchlike advertising is trustworthy, and search for something entertaining among adware propositions, doing hundreds of referrals daily. Reputable AV-software creators and malware-fighting communities receive tens of thousands of complaints on DragonBoost, so hackers do really good money on it.

Methods to remove DragonBoost

Actually, there is another feature of DragonBoost that in the long term may initiate significant damage to your computer. We speak about that DragonBoost switches the controls of user's browser on purpose to advertise more efficiently which makes it extremely assailable against all threats. Advertising program changes the default search engine and the URL of the starting page, and also disables options which are responsible for filtration of advertising and for denying of malicious downloads. These changes conflict with the fundamental regulations of Internet security, and make your browser very vulnerable to all sorts of viruses. Depending on the user's activity in the Web, the computer can be heavily clogged in a 2-3 weeks, and eventually appear so slow that it is almost impossible to work. There is only one way to hide advertisement and save your system from viral danger - to remove DragonBoost.

Method 1. Use special removal software

Method 2. Remove DragonBoost manually

Step 1. Uninstall DragonBoost from the operation system

Step 2. Remove DragonBoost from the browser (Google Chrome/Mozilla Firefox/IE/Opera/Safari)

 

Advertisement programs are being spread in different techniques: through infected web-sites on which the unwanted download might start at any click, and via bundled installation. The "website" technique may be lightly avoided: you should visit only those web-sites that are fully secure, and appear on the first positions in the search results. Also, don't forget to pay attention to the warnings that your browser and antivirus show. The bundled installation technique isn't related to websites: you must be aware of it only if you are installing some software. This technique is based on user's credulity and the harmful habit to click OK before you read what is written above. The installation program is set to suggest you to get extra software instead of the one that you wanted. All fields are already checked, and if user clicks "OK" he installs at 3-4 programs instead of one. You should understand that: if DragonBoost had infected your system with help of bundled installation, you, probably, have other unwanted software or malware. So, when you see the option among “recommended install” and “partial installation” – pick the second option. Do this each time you install something - and your computer will be noticeably cleaner.
