Lottadeals

Scammers don't create viruses just to irritate users, and every virus has strict aims. However, if you think that the description of this program is really useful - you've made a mistake. Usually, the description of every dangerous software states that it is highly helpful. 99% of advertising programs state that they will support in the look for goods or information on the Internet. Search for sales, deals and discounts in the Web, assistance in the search for new movies, games or music and performing some functions in Twitter - that's the functions that 90% of advertising tools state to accomplish. It might look really good, but if you think about it, you realize that all options that are declared have long been present in the basic feature set of any browser or social network. How do you think, why the functions of adware are so blurred? The "safer", "better" or "faster" web-surfing is a excellent sample of suchlike functions, since these parameters are really vague and they're very to trace. So, adware are completely useless, and just take up space in the computer's memory? No, they have one important function and it is to trick the users and to obtain money from online advertising.

 

We don't remember where it came from but now many people think that hackers develop the viruses with no logical reason. It's pretty reasonable, didn't it? Hacker thinks about you, endeavoring to delete his undesired program, and it feels really good! Alright, I'm joking. The adware always have a aim, and even if the task isn't clear - you will understand it later. For example, the continuous display of annoying ads on each website isn't an accident. All these ads are generated to obtain money from clicks. Simply said, defrayal of promotional services is made based on the number of clicks made on the banner, or the quantity of clicks from link to the website. All advertising program's efforts are aimed at making you pass the link. Yet if user is not interested in adware's propositions - the click may still be performed, in order to close an undesirable intrusive ad. Any click costs money and based on the type of advertising it can cost up to 5 cents and in some cases even more. However the price isn’t large, do not forget about the quantity of clicks! Confiding user can think that these ads are trustworthy, and try to find something worthwhile among adware propositions, making tens of referrals daily. Anti-virus companies and tech-support forums receive thousands of complaints on Lottadeals, so scammers are doing pretty nice profit on it.

Advertising software is being distributed in several ways: via infected websites on which the undesired download may begin after any click, and via bundled installation. The "website" way might be simply avoided: you must only visit web-sites that are fully safe, and are on the first positions in the search results. Except that, listen to the warnings that your browser and anti-virus show. To shield your computer from the penetration via the bundled installation technique, you have to carefully supervise the installation of any program. Installation in bundles is simple: adware is added to installation files of free programs. The installation program is modified to offer you to install more tools instead of the one that you wanted. In many variations you just can't uncheck the boxes, and in some - there's no sign of extraneous programs. Remember: if Lottadeals had penetrated your system through bundled installation, there probably are some more adware or malware. So, when you see the choice between “recommended installation” and “installation for practiced users” – choose the second option. Remember about this each time you install some program - and your machine will be much cleaner.
