Bookmarks Button

Advertising software includes a pretty long list of different species, but the very famous of them are adware, browser toolbars and redirects. These programs are initially developed not to be helpful, and their aim is to receive money by tricking customers. Many customers believe that these programs are reliable, being deceived by huge lists of their features, but all these features either aren't working, or just cannot exist. What do these utilities really do?

  • Toolbars are not so annoying as adware and hijackers, but ads aren't their single task. They also collect the information about user's computer and about his doings in the Web. This info might be used against its owner or sold to third parties for a decent price.
  • Classic adware is famous for the never-ending spam with all possible kinds of banners, pop-ups and ads. Suchlike utilities might be masked almost to anything: programs for updating and downloading drivers, system optimizers, video and audio players, software for finding games and movies and even more. Advertising emerges as distinct blocks in search results, links or pop-ups.
  • Browser hijackers do not place advertising on the reliable websites. Hijackers, from time to time open a scammer's webpage in user's browser that passes to one of the sites with ads and suspicious links.

Suchlike tools along and every one of them can be used for various methods of advertising scam. Despite the difference in methods, they have one thing in common: they were from the very beginning produced for fraud and deceit. Aside from obvious inconvenience, such as abundance of ads and pop-ups, there is another property of Bookmarks Button and it is the critical decrease of machine's security.

 

Now, when we explained for what purpose was Bookmarks Button, you should know how to detect it. It's evident that the basic sign of advertising software is an increase in the quantity of pop-ups. Attribute #2 is the appearance of strange tools in the system that you don't remember installing. Such thing might happen when user clicks on all links that adware displays, visiting the viral websites and loading viruses from there. Dangerous tools are acting stealthy so you can't realize that you just installed them.

Another red flag is a significant slowdown of the computer, and an enlargement in its boot time. Degradation of machine's speed isn't only the effect of dangerous programs, but this happens very often. PC is slowing down because all advertising tool is working in the background and never turns off. This means that virus is starting at system startup and shutting down only with the whole machine. If 3-5 such tools will sneak on your PC, their simultaneous running overburdens the system, and takes so many resources that good programs just cannot run. This can cause retardation, trouble turn-offs and critical errors of basic programs. If you witness any of these marks - you should check the machine with a high anti-virus or delete all hazardous software in manual mode.
