We say so since Stocks Alerts not just calls inconveniences while you're surfing the Internet, but can call a dangerous adware infection of your machine. Do you notice the high amount of advertisement in browser, or the switched homepage? Have you faced the full slowdown of PC’s and browser speed, or strange results of search and repeated redirections to the malicious web-pages? These are the attributes of advertising programs working on your computer and if you've seen few of these – your system is in danger.

What is Stocks Alerts

Scammers don't create unwanted programs only to irritate you, and each virus has strict aims. Unfortunately, the real task of this adware is different from those declared. Usually, the depiction of each unwanted program promises that it will be highly useful. 90% of adware promise that they can support in web-browsing. Assistance in the download of new movies, music or games, observing the activity of friends in Facebook and search for deals, discounts and sales on the Internet - that's the most common features of adware. The most important thing you should do if you want to install some software - to figure out, is it really helpful? Don't you wonder why are all adware descriptions so indistinct? The "better", "safer" or "faster" web-browsing is a pure example of suchlike functions, since these parameters are very indistinct and they're very to observe. Does this mean that adware are completely useless, and just take up space in the machine's memory? No, they have one significant task and it is to fool the users and to make money on ads.

 

Inexperienced users believe that most of viruses have no distinct goal. It makes sense, yes? Web-scammer knows that out there somewhere is a user which is struggling to delete his unwanted program right now, and it feels very good! Alright, it was a joke. The malware always have their task, and even if you don't understand what it is for - you'll understand it later. For instance, the continuous display of suspicious ads on each page isn't an accident. All these ads are displayed to make money from referrals. Simply said, advertising services are paid based on the quantity of clicks done on the banner, or the amount of referrals from link to the website. So, the more banners advertising program displays you, the better is the possibility that you will be interested and pass the link. Actually if you don't take interest in hacker's proposals - you still click on advertising, at least to hide an uncomfortable intrusive banner. Any referral is worth the money, depending on the type of advertisement it can cost from 0.1 to 5 cents and sometimes even more. However the reward isn’t big, do not forget about the amount of clicks! Gullible user can take the advertising given by malware seriously, and try to find something fine among these proposals, making dozens of referrals daily. Well-known AV-software developers and tech-support communities receive tens of thousands of reports on Stocks Alerts, so hackers do pretty good money on it.

Methods to remove Stocks Alerts

And finally, there is one more effect of Stocks Alerts that in the long perspective can bring serious damage to your computer. This function is Stocks Alerts's ability to change browser settings on purpose to advertise more effective that makes it highly defenseless against all viruses. Adware wants to shift three things: homepage, default search engine and the blocking of annoying ads. These changes conflict with the primary principles of computer security, and make the browser extremely vulnerable to all types of viruses. According to man's practice on the Internet, the machine can be totally infected in a half of a month, and suddenly appear so slow that it is nearly impossible to work.

Hackers use two main methods of advertisement tool spread: the placing on the hacked web-pages and installation in bundles with free programs. Harmful websites are really easy to know: they appear on the last pages of search, and they are overwhelmed with intrusive advertisement and suspicious links. Also, remember to pay attention to the warnings of your antivirus program and browser. Second technique isn't related to websites: you need to be aware of it only when you are installing some software. Bundled installation technique is based on people's credulity and the harmful habit to click OK before you know what is written above. The installation tool is modified to suggest you to get more programs except the one that you wanted. In many variations you just cannot cancel the installation, and in some - you don't even see that you're installing something else. Remember: if Stocks Alerts had infected your computer via bundled installation, you, probably, have some more adware or viruses. So, if you see the option among “recommended install” and “partial installation” – pick the second variant. Do this each time you install new program - and your system will be much cleaner.
