What is Tabs2grid

Tabs2grid

Any program has its purpose, and Tabs2grid is no exception. Unfortunately, if you believe that the description of Tabs2grid is really useful - you're wrong. Usually, the specification of the unwanted tool promises that it will be very useful. 99% of advertising programs promise that they can support in the search for something on the Internet. Help in the finding of recent games, movies or music, search for sales, deals and discounts in the Web and tracking the activity of friends in Twitter - these are the most spread features of advertising tools. At first glance it seems really useful, but if you think about it, you understand that all features that are declared have long been present in the start functionality of any browser or social network. How do you think, why are all adware descriptions so indistinct? The "faster", "better" or "safer" search in the Web is a brilliant example of suchlike features, because these parameters are very indistinct and almost impossible to observe. According to this, advertising software do not do anything, and just take up space in the computer's memory? No, they got one important function and it is to deceive the users and to make money on ads.

 

We don't remember when it started but now there is an opinion that Internet-scammers create the viruses with no logical reason. It's really reasonable, right? Hacker thinks about an operator which is endeavoring to delete his virus, and the feeling is really good! Alright, it was a joke. There are no useless malware. It is weird that advertising program shows so much pop-ups, but when you understand it, the scheme appears pretty simple. All these ads are shown to obtain money on clicks. Some people know that advertising in Internet is paid on the special system, called pay per click. It means that the customer pays for each referral from the banner to the web-page. All adware's actions are aimed at making you pass the link. Even if you don't take interest in any of the ads - the click may still be done, at least to close an undesirable intrusive ad. Every referral is worth the money, based on the type of ads it can count from 0.1 to 5 cents and sometimes even more. Here we see that numbers beat quality, as hackers develop lots of low quality viruses that spam with hype. Gullible operator can take the advertising shown by adware in earnest, and look for something entertaining among adware propositions, making dozens of clicks daily. Anti-viral companies and malware-fighting communities get thousands of reports on Tabs2grid, so hackers make really nice money on it.

Hackers use two principal ways of advertisement tool spread: the placing on the infected websites and bundled installation with good software. Dangerous websites are very easy to know: they appear on the last positions in search, and they intrusively offer to purchase something. Except that, the browser and anti-viral tool will display the warning, if the web-site is not trustworthy. To defend yourself from the infection through the bundled installation method, you must carefully monitor the installation of any software. This method is based on user's credulity and the bad habit to click OK before you know what is written above. The installation tool is modified to offer you to install extra tools instead of the one that you wanted. All fields are pre-checked, and by clicking "OK" he gets at 4-5 tools instead of one. You have to understand that: if Tabs2grid had penetrated your PC through bundled installation, you, probably, have some more adware or malware. So, when you see the option among “recommended install” and “partial installation” – pick the second option. Do this each time you install something - and your machine will be much cleaner.
