This article is devoted to an adware called Quantum Trader and manners to delete it. If you suffer from constant ads on the Internet, and the speed of the machine has suddenly diminished - this guide will explain you what adware is, identify the fundamental issue and sweep the machine of suspicious software.

Quantum Trader

Adware includes a fairly long list of different sorts, but the most effective of them are browser toolbars, adware and redirects. You have to understand that advertising spam isn't accidental - they were developed to act this way from the beginning. Internet-criminals try very hard to urge customers that suchlike tools are reliable: they create ample descriptions and promise incredible usability and advantage. To make it easier for you, we will explain the basic functions of each adware type.

  • Toolbars are less annoying than adware and hijackers, but except showing ads they also collect the info about user's machine and about his actions in the Web. This data is of considerable value for each advertising company.
  • Common adware is known because of countless spam with different banners, ads and pop-ups. Web-criminals try to make adware seem useful, so it can be disguised as one of hundreds of useful programs for text redacting, data archiving, web-browsing, etc. Offers which are shown by advertising tools aren't secure and we strongly recommend you not to click on them.
  • Browser hijackers invite another kind of problem. Instead of banners they redirect their victims to the untrusted websites. These utilities help the dishonest website owners to create traffic and endangers the whole workstation.

Advertising programs are different and use distinct methods to penetrate the PC and to act inside of it. They have one thing in common - they all provide problems for the user and prevent the user from browsing the Web. Except for obvious inconvenience, such as abundance of irritating propositions, there is a perilous property of Quantum Trader: the abnormal decrease of system's security.

 

Now, when you know for what purpose was Quantum Trader, you should understand how to reveal it. The first and the most perilous sign of adware is the extremely high percentage of ads. Attribute #2 is the emersion of strange software on your PC that you don't remember downloading. This happens when user passes each link that Quantum Trader displays, viewing the untrusted pages and downloading viruses from them. These programs behave imperceptibly and you cannot understand that you just installed them.

The symptom №2 is a heavy slowdown of the computer, and an increase in its loading time. Lag of computer's performance is not only the result of adware, but this happens really often. The machine slows down because all advertising program is working endlessly and never stops. It means that the program is launching at system boot and turning off only with the whole computer. When the number of suchlike tools reaches the critical point, their simultaneous work overburdens the system, and demands so many resources that useful software just cannot work. When the OS is in this state, it begins to suffer from emergency shutdowns, retardation and critical errors of different programs. If you notice any of these symptoms - you need to scan the system with a quality antivirus or eliminate all perilous programs in manual mode.
