How to remove (uninstall) NotToTrackIM

We say so since NotToTrackIM not just brings inconveniences during web-surfing, but might summon a dangerous malware infection of your computer. Don't you worry about the huge quantity of advertising on each website, or the shifted homepage? Have you suffered of the overall retardation of system’s and browsing speed, or irrelevant results of search and common redirections to the strange web-pages? These are the red flags of advertising programs working in the system and if you've seen few of them – your computer is in jeopardy.

What is NotToTrackIM

NotToTrackIM

Hackers don't develop undesired programs just to irritate you, and each adware has straight aims. However, the true task of NotToTrackIM does not match with the stated ones. Usually, the description of adware declares that it will be extremely helpful. 99% of advertising software declare that they will help in web-browsing. Search for discounts, sales and deals on the Internet, assistance in the download of new music, games or movies and supervising the activity of friends in Twitter - that's the most prevalent functions of adware. At first glance it is very good, but if you think about it, you understand that all functions that are declared have long been imbued in the basic functionality of all browsers or social networks. How do you think, why the advantages of advertising programs are so vague? The "better", "faster" or "safer" web-surfing is a brilliant sample of suchlike function, since these parameters are really vague and they're very to supervise. Does this mean that adware are completely useless, and just take up space in the machine's memory? Of course not!! This software performs a very substantial function, - to help online scammers to earn from $1000 to $5000 per day on novice users.

 

It's hard to understand when it had begun but today some users think that hackers develop the undesired programs without any logical reason. It's pretty reasonable, right? Malware developer knows that out there somewhere is an operator that is trying to delete his virus, and the feeling is very good! Alright, I'm joking. There are no useless undesired programs. It is weird that advertising program displays so much ads, but when you realize it, it appears very plain. All these ads are shown to obtain money on clicks. Simply stated, defrayment of advertising services is made according to the number of clicks made on the advertisement, or the quantity of clicks from ad to the web-site. All advertising program's efforts are targeted at making you click on the ads. Actually if you're not interested in adware's propositions - the click might still be performed, at least in order to hide an undesirable annoying ad. Every click is worth the money, depending on the type of advertising it can count up to 5 cents and for some sorts of advertising even more. In this case we see that quantity defeats quality, as swindlers create lots of substandard viruses that spam with intrusive ads. Gullible operator can take the ads provided by adware in earnest, and look for something entertaining among adware offers, doing hundreds of referrals every day. Based on our information, the number of computers, infected by NotToTrackIM is at least 30 000, and if each of them is making five to ten referrals daily, the fraudster's profit no longer seems so insignificant.

Hackers use two primary methods of advertising tool distribution: the placing on the infected web-pages and installation in bundles with free programs.

In addition, listen to the warnings of your antivirus software and browser. To shield your PC from the penetration through the second method, you must attentively monitor the installation of all programs. Installation in bundles means that adware is integrated into installers of other tools. User installs some software and in one of the windows during the process emerges a suggestion to install some more programs.
