How to remove (uninstall) BetterAds

BetterAds is the annoying software whose services can be used by swindlers to promote their websites. There are two most popular sorts of advertising programs: adware and hijackers, and methods of their action are very similar. The one distinction between them is that the hijackers use only browsers and adware may show ads on your desktop. The most common method of penetration for those viruses is to feign a useful program. All features of these programs are described really blurry, so it is nearly impossible to understand, does the program work or not. Reports about the doings of your subscribers in Facebook, improved finding of bargains and discounts, quick search and other pointless functions – that’s what such programs are proposing. Actually, they do not do even these things and simply flood you with advertising.

Many people don't believe that BetterAds is not harmful independently. BetterAds isn't malicious, as it does not interfere with the work of programs, it doesn't erase information and does not cause direct damage to the computer. The functions that BetterAds performs are innocuous, but it lets customer to harm his machine as much as he can. With help of advertisement, hijacker initiates a flow of users to determined web-sites and earns money for hackers. The owners of promoted sites pay to cyber criminals for advertising and promotional services, thereby giving a stimulus to make new species of adware. This vicious circle is very difficult to break and BetterAds will do its job until all users will receive a negative experience with hijackers and adware, and cease to install these types of programs.

After penetrating the computer and installation advertising program, the only thing that concerns BetterAds is advertisement. Ads arise everywhere, including the browser new tabs, desktop and even homepage. Even if you managed to close the banners, BetterAds begins to act even more aggressive, hiding the whole web-pages. Any interaction with the banner can invite the virus. Hijackers might show less hype than other advertising programs, but if hijacker is active in your system you could not even find the needed web-site, being redirected further and further again. The easiest method to clear the system and recover the browsers is the removal of BetterAds and complete scanning of PC.
