What is SoundRad.net

SoundRad.net

The viruses aren't made for fun, and every adware has straight goals. However, if you believe that the description of this software is true is really useful - you've made a mistake. Commonly, the description of the harmful tool promises that it will be very useful. Most of suchlike software state to assist in web-browsing. Supervising the activity of friends in Facebook, help in the search for latest movies, music or games and search for discounts, deals and sales online - these are the most spread functions of adware. The primary thing you should do if you're about to install any software - to think, is it really useful? Don't you wonder why are all adware descriptions so indistinct? The "faster", "better" or "safer" web-browsing is a pure sample of suchlike function, because these parameters are very indistinct and almost impossible to observe. Does this mean that advertising programs are completely useless, and just take up space in the machine's memory? Of course not!! Adware performs a very significant task, - to allow online fraudsters to earn from $1000 to $5000 a day from unsuspecting users.

 

We don't understand where it came from but now many people think that Internet-fraudsters develop the viruses without any logical reason. Perilous programs slow down your PC, interfere with the work of good software, and hackers like it so much that they want to spend days, creating pointless adware. You must remember that each unwanted software has specific function, and it is often applies to profit. For example, the indiscriminate showing of annoying advertising on every website is not accidental. All this advertising is displayed to make money from clicks. Simply said, defrayal of promotional services is made based on the number of clicks done on the banner, or the amount of clicks from banner to the website. All advertising software's efforts are targeted at making you click on the link. Yet if user is not interested in adware's propositions - you will click on the link, at least in order to close an unwanted irritating banner. Advertisers don't care in which way the click was done, and scammers will receive their money both for the normal referral and for the incidental one. In this case we see how quantity beats quality, as hackers create lots of substandard viruses that spam with hype. Confiding customer can think that suchlike advertisement is good, and search for something interesting among these offers, doing tens of referrals daily. Anti-virus developers and malware-fighting communities receive thousands of reports on SoundRad.net, so swindlers make pretty nice profit on it.

Methods to remove SoundRad.net

According to your performance on the Internet, the machine can be totally clogged in a 2-3 weeks, and eventually become so retarded that it is almost impossible to work. If you don't want your Computer to be in such state you should remove SoundRad.net from your PC as fast as possible.

There are two main methods of adware distribution: the placing on the infected web-sites and bundled installation with good programs. The "website" way can be lightly avoided: you should only visit websites that are considered reliable, and appear on the first positions in browser. Except that, the browser and anti-viral tool will display the notification, if the web-site is unreliable. Second method is a little bit different: you must be aware of it only if you are installing some software. Bundled installation technique is based on user's trustfulness and the bad habit to click OK before you understand what is written above. The installation helper is modified to offer you to install extra software in addition to the one that you need. In some variations you just cannot uncheck the boxes, and in some - you don't even realize that you're installing something else. Naturally, all programs except the desired one will be meaningless or even hazardous. According to this, if you see the option between “recommended installation” and “partial installation” – pick the second option. Keep this in mind each time you install some program - and your system will be much cleaner.
