How to remove (uninstall) Footjane

The tool that we want to talk about is called Footjane. If your system is free of Footjane – you should be aware of it, and if it already is in your system – you have to delete it as soon as possible. It has no helpful functions, because it was developed only to earn money to its creators, and to irritate its victims. Aren't you worried about the huge quantity of ads on the Internet, or the change of start page? Isn't it strange that the default search engine is switched to the suspicious web-site, and it opens every time when you launch your browser? The red flags which are listed above tell us that the PC is affected with some kind of adware, and this program should be deleted.

What is Footjane

Every tool has its purpose, and Footjane isn't an exception. Unfortunately, the real aim of Footjane differs from those declared. Typically, the depiction of adware declares that it will be super useful. Most of adware promise that they can support in the look for goods or information on the Internet. Search for sales, discounts and deals in the Web, performing some functions in Twitter and assistance in the search for new games, movies or music - that's the functions that 90% of advertising tools promise to carry out. The first thing you should do when you're going to install some program - to take thought, is it really useful? In fact, the aim of hackers is to convince you that their program performs something which can't be monitored. The "safer", "better" or "faster" web-surfing is a pure example of suchlike feature, as these parameters are very indistinct and almost impossible to trace. According to this, adware do not do anything, and is just consuming space in the machine's memory? Of course not!! Adware performs a very significant function, - to allow hackers to obtain thousands of dollars per day on trustful users.

 

We don't know how it happened but now there is an opinion that hackers create the unwanted programs with no particular reason. It makes sense, right? Hacker thinks about you, trying to delete his dangerous program, and it feels very good! It's a joke, of course. There are no useless malicious programs. It is hard to guess why adware displays so many pop-ups, but when you get it, it looks very plain. All this advertisement is shown to obtain money on referrals. Simply stated, payment of promotional services is made according to the number of clicks done on the banner, or the quantity of clicks from link to the site. All adware's actions are aimed at persuading you pass the link. Yet if you don't take interest in any of the ads - you can click on the link, at least to hide an inconvenient annoying ad. The system doesn't care in which way the click was done, and scammers will receive their money both for the normal referral and for the unwanted one. However this amount isn’t big, do not neglect the amount of victims! Trustful operator can take the ads provided by virus in earnest, and try to find something worthwhile among adware offers, making dozens of clicks every day. According to our data, the quantity of computers, infected by Footjane is at least 40 000, and if all of them are making ten to twenty clicks per day, the hacker's gain don't seem so insignificant.

Methods to remove Footjane

Actually, Footjane has another function that in the long perspective might call significant damage to your system. This consequence is Footjane's ability to modify the controls of your browser in order to distribute advertising more efficiently that makes it highly assailable to all threats. Adware switches the URL of the homepage and the set search engine, and also disables options which are responsible for blocking of advertising and for prevention of dangerous downloads. Suchlike changes conflict with the fundamental principles of Internet security, and make your browser highly assailable to all types of malicious software. The viruses will overwhelm your PC, because user helps it to do so. If you don't want your PC to be in such state you have to uninstall Footjane from the system ASAP.

We know two principal methods of adware spread: the placing on the hacked websites and bundled installation with good programs. The first technique might be simply avoided: you must visit only those web-sites that are totally reliable, and are on the first pages in the search results. In addition, pay attention to the warnings of your antivirus software and browser. To defend yourself from the penetration through the second method, you have to closely monitor the installation of all programs. Bundled installation method is based on people's trustfulness and the harmful habit to click OK before you understand what is written above. The installer is modified to offer you to get more tools in addition to the one that you need. All fields are pre-checked, and if user clicks "OK" he installs at 3-4 programs in addition to the needed one. You need to understand that: if Footjane had infected your machine with help of installation in bundles, there probably are other undesired programs or viruses. According to this, if you see the option among “recommended install” and “partial installation” – pick the second option. This will let you to choose what tool you are going to install and which you do not.
