We don't remember when it happened but today many users think that web-fraudsters make the viruses with no logical reason. Viruses slow down your PC, prevent the functions of good tools, and hackers like it so much that they are willing to spend their time and money to create silly and irritating adware. You have to remember that any undesired software performs specific feature, and this feature helps scammers to obtain money. It is hard to guess why adware displays so many banners, but when you realize it, it appears pretty plain. All this advertisement is displayed to earn money from clicks. Some users know that browser advertising is paid on the special system, called pay per click. It means that the customer pays for each referral from the ad to the web-site. Thus, the more banners adware shows you, the bigger is the possibility that you will be interested and pass the link. Actually if you are not interested in hacker's ads - the click may still be performed, at least in order to hide an unwanted intrusive ad. Every click is worth the money, based on the sort of ads it can count from 0.1 to 5 cents and sometimes even more. Here we see how quantity defeats quality, as hackers develop a lot of substandard programs that spam with hype. Gullible operator can think that this advertisement is trustworthy, and look for something interesting among these offers, making dozens of clicks per day. Based on our data, the quantity of PC's, infected by 1.0.0.1 is at least 20 000, and if all of them are making five to ten referrals per day, the hacker's profit don't seem so low.

Methods to remove 1.0.0.1

Actually, there is another effect of 1.0.0.1 which in the long term can bring significant issues with your computer. This feature is 1.0.0.1's ability to modify the controls of your browser on purpose to distribute ads more efficiently which makes it highly assailable to all sorts of malware. 1.0.0.1 switches the set search engine and the address of the homepage, and also blocks functions that are reliable for blocking of ads and for prevention of unwanted downloads. So, if adware is within the PC, the browser is highly vulnerable, and different malicious programs may penetrate through it to the system, which exactly occurs if man begins to randomly click on hazardous links given by adware. The viruses will overwhelm your system, because each referral on the link, provided by adware calls one more adware on the PC. You have only one technique to hide advertising and protect your system from viral danger - to uninstall 1.0.0.1.

Method 1. Use special removal software

Method 2. Remove 1.0.0.1 manually

Step 1. Uninstall 1.0.0.1 from the operation system

We know two main methods of adware spread: the placing on the hacked websites and bundled installation with good programs. The "website" method might be simply neutralized: you should visit only those web-sites which are completely dependable, and appear on the first positions in browser. Except that, your browser and anti-viral tool will show the notification, if the web-site is suspicious. To defend yourself from the penetration via the second technique, you must carefully monitor the installation of all programs. Installation in bundles is simple: 1.0.0.1 is added to installation packages of free programs. The installer is changed to offer you to get more tools in addition to the one that you wanted. All fields are pre-checked, and if you click “OK” – you will get at 2-3 tools instead of one. Most likely, all programs except the wanted one will be pointless or even dangerous. So, if you see the option among “safe installation” and “partial installation” – choose the second variant. This will let you to choose what program you want to install and which you don’t.
