How to remove (uninstall) Unstopweb

Unstopweb is an advertising program that tries to pretend useful. It is a pure adware and has all its functions. It shows ads on the desktop and in browser, redirects you to the suspicious websites, makes the web-browsing very inconvenient and slows down the computer. But, this program has something that most of other advertising programs don’t: it has a catchy description. Unstopweb’s developers state that this program is something like free VPN service and proxy in one bottle. They say that you will be able to access any website and bypass any geo-restrictions. Of course, Unstopweb can’t do it, but these options gives this program an opportunity to legally change the settings of your browser, DNS settings and proxy settings without raising suspicion. Usually advertising tool’s description says that it will improve your browsing experience, help you to find goods and offers or promises any other absolutely useless option. People know that such program isn’t good and don’t want to download it. But free VPN is OK and Unstopweb already infected tens of thousands of computers.

There are three basic types of advertising programs which may be found on the Web these days: adware, browser toolbars and browser hijackers. You have to realize that they aren't the helpful programs that advertise other useful software - they were made to spam with ads and pop-ups. The majority of customers mistakenly think that suchlike utilities are reliable, being fooled by massive catalogues of their functions, but all these advantages either do not work, or do not exist at all. To make it clear for you, we will explain the main features of each adware type.

  • Contamination with a hijacker brings another sort of problem. Hijackers, from time to time open a scammer's webpage in the browser that passes to one of the sites with ads and malicious links.
  • Toolbars are less irritating than adware and hijackers, but ads aren't their only purpose. They also collect the information about victim's computer and about his actions on the Internet. Suchlike information is of significant value for any advertising organization.
  • Usual adware is known because of countless spam with different pop-ups, ads and banners. Such programs can be masked almost to anything: video and audio players, system optimizers, tools for downloading and updating drivers, programs for finding movies and music and even more. Advertising comes up as links, separate blocks in search results or pop-ups.

All these utilities along and any of them might be applied for different types of advertising scam. These tools have one thing in common - they all cause problems for the user and prevent him from using the Internet. Except that, since all adware is trying to make you to visit the strange and often perilous websites, they allow other malware to infect the PC.

 

Now, when we figured out for what purpose was this utility made, it's time to understand how to reveal Unstopweb and delete it. The biggest and the most noticeable symptom of penetration is the very high percentage of pop-ups. Another sign is the emersion of extraneous tools in the system that you don't remember downloading. Such thing might happen when customer clicks on all links that Unstopweb shows, viewing the viral pages and loading software from them. Dangerous tools are acting stealthy so you can't realize that you actually downloaded them.

The attribute #2 is a hard slowdown of the machine, and an increase in its loading time. You should know that suchlike problems often appear for other reasons, not related to advertising tools. The reason for this slowdown is that unlike good programs, adware has to restlessly work, displaying advertising and redirecting user to harmful sites. It means that virus is running at computer's boot and turning off only when the system stops working. When there are too many adware on the PC, their synchronous work overloads the system, and needs so much resources that reliable programs just can't work. When the computer is in such condition, it starts to suffer from deceleration, critical errors of important services and emergency shutdowns. If you witness any of these signs - you should check the system with a reputable AV tool or delete all adware by hand.
