How to remove (uninstall) Cloudnet

This article will tell you everything about an advertising tool called Cloudnet and methods to get rid of it. If you see lots of advertising on the Internet, and the performance of your PC has greatly decreased - this item will help you find out what adware is, spot the primary issue and sweep the computer of malicious programs.


There are three main forms of adware which spread through the Web these days: adware, redirects and browser toolbars. You have to realize that the abundance of banners isn't an accident - they were developed to act this way from the beginning. Most of customers believe that such utilities are useful, being deluded by massive catalogues of their features, but all these features either do not work, or just cannot exist. So, what's the real aim of adware?

  • Toolbars are not so irritating as browser hijackers and adware, but except advertising actions they also collect the information about user's machine and about his actions in the Web. Such information is of significant value for any advertising company.
  • Contamination with a hijacker brings another sort of trouble. Instead of advertising they make the users to view the infected web-pages. These utilities help the foul website owners to increase traffic and endangers the whole computer.
  • Adware differs in that it inserts advertising information on every website that the user views and in some cases, on the desktop. Fraudsters try to make adware seem profitable, so it might be disguised as one of many useful tools for text redacting, web-browsing, data archiving, etc. Offers which are shown by advertising utilities aren't dependable and you better not click on them.

Adware is different and use distinct techniques to infect the system and to work in it. They have one thing in common - they all cause inconvenience to the customer and prevent the customer from surfing the Web. By the way, since all adware tries to force you to visit the useless and often infected sites, they let other malicious tools to infect the computer.


So, you know what purposes are pursued by malware and, you should understand how to detect it. The biggest and the most perilous attribute of penetration is the advertising overflow. Symptom #2 is the emergence of additional programs on your computer that you don't remember installing. Such thing can happen when user clicks on each link that adware provides, visiting the viral websites and installing programs from there. Harmful programs act imperceptibly so you might not realize that you actually installed them.

The third sign is a strong slowdown of the machine, and an growth in the loading time of the system. Degradation of computer's speed isn't exclusively the result of virus, but this appears quite frequently. The reason for such deceleration is that in contradistinction to good programs, Cloudnet acts 24/7, showing advertising and redirecting customer to harmful web-pages. This means that the program is starting at computer's boot and shutting down only with the whole PC. When there are too much of them, their simultaneous work overloads the system, and takes so much resources that reliable utilities just can't operate. This can induce lags, trouble shutdowns and critical errors of important services. If you witness any of these attributes - you should scan the hard drive with a reputable AV tool or remove all adware in manual mode.
