How to remove (uninstall) MeSafe

The program that we want to talk about is known as MeSafe. If you already faced browser hijacker or adware - you may just go to the deletion instructions and eliminate this useless program. If you haven't experienced suchlike software earlier - trust us, this adware surely must not be kept on your computer. We are saying so because MeSafe not just brings inconveniences while you're looking for something on the Internet, but may bring a dangerous adware infection of your PC. Have you mentioned the huge quantity of ads on each website, or the switched homepage? Have you suffered of the massive slowdown of system’s and browser speed, or irrelevant search results and frequent redirections to the suspicious webpages? The red flags that are described above tell us that the system is infected with some sort of advertising tool, and this tool must be deleted.

What is MeSafe

MeSafe

All programs have their tasks, and MeSafe is no exception. However, if you think that the description of this tool is true is really helpful - you've made a mistake. Typically, the specification of adware declares that it is very helpful. Most of suchlike programs promise that they will help in web-browsing. Performing some functions in social networks, help in the finding of new movies, music or games and search for discounts, deals and sales in the Web - these are the functions that 95% of advertising programs promise to carry out. The primary thing you have to do when you're about to download some program - to take thought, is it really helpful? Don't you wonder why are all adware descriptions so indistinct? The "better", "safer" or "faster" search on the Internet is a perfect example of suchlike functions, since these options are really indistinct and almost impossible to observe. According to this, adware are completely useless, and is just consuming space in the PC's memory? Of course not!! They perform a highly significant task, - to let online criminals to receive thousands of dollars a day from novice users.

 

We don't know where it came from but now there is an opinion that hackers make the viruses without any logical reason. It makes sense, yes? Malware developer knows that out there somewhere is an operator that is trying to uninstall his malicious program, and it feels very good! Alright, I'm joking. The viruses can't be useless, and even if the aim isn't clear - you'll understand it later. For example, the indiscriminate display of suspicious advertising on every page isn't an accident. All this advertisement is generated to obtain money on clicks. Many people heard that browser advertising is paid on the pay-per-click system. It means that the customer pays for each transition from the pop-up to the web-site. Thus, the more links advertising program shows you, the bigger is the possibility that you will be interested and click on the link. Yet if you're not interested in hacker's propositions - you might click on the link, at least to hide an unwanted intrusive ad. Every click costs money, depending on the type of ads it can cost from 0.1 to 5 cents and for some sorts of advertising even more. In this case we see that quantity overcomes quality, as scammers create hundreds of low quality viruses that spam with hype. Credible user can take the advertising given by malware seriously, and search for something fine among these propositions, making tens of clicks each day. According to our information, the number of victims of MeSafe is at least 20 000, and if each of them is making five to ten referrals daily, the swindler's income no longer seems so low.

Methods to remove MeSafe

And finally, there is another effect of MeSafe which in the long perspective might cause serious damage to your system. The fact is that MeSafe can shift the controls of user's browser in order to advertise more effective that makes it extremely defenseless to all types of malicious programs. Advertising program switches the pre search engine and the URL of the starting page, and also disables functions that are responsible for blocking of advertising and for prevention of unwanted downloads. Thus, when advertising tool is within the system, the browser is extremely assailable, and all kinds of dangerous programs may penetrate through it to the system, which is what occurs when user begins to randomly click on hazardous links given by MeSafe. The harmful software will clog your computer, because user helps it to do so. If you don't want your Computer to be in such state you have to uninstall MeSafe from your system as soon as possible.

Hackers use two principal ways of adware distribution: the placing on the hacked web-pages and installation in bundles with good programs. Malicious web-pages are very easy to know: they appear on the last pages in search, and they intrusively suggest to download something. Also, remember to listen to the notifications of your antivirus program and browser. To shield your machine from the infection through the bundled installation method, you should carefully observe the installation of all programs. Installation in bundles is simple: advertising program is added to installers of other programs. User installs some software and in one of the windows during installation appears a suggestion to download some more tools. In some versions you just cannot uncheck the boxes, and in some - there's no sign of additional installation. Naturally, all software except the desired one will be trashy or even dangerous. According to this, if you see the option among “safe installation” and “partial installation” – pick the second option. This will allow you to pick what program you want to install and what you don’t.
