How to remove (uninstall) Find My Tab

This guide will tell you the important things about an adware called Find My Tab and methods to delete it. If you suffer from constant advertising in the browser, and the productivity of the machine has suddenly diminished - this article will explain you what advertising tools are, identify the primary problem and sweep the machine of malicious software.

Find My Tab

Find My Tab is an extension for Google Chrome, that can cause corruption of the browser as adware program. Advertising utilities include a very long list of different types, but the most efficient of them are browser toolbars, adware and redirects. These tools weren't useful from the very beginning, so their purpose is to earn money by tricking people. Many customers believe that such utilities are reliable, being tricked by massive lists of their advantages, but all these advantages either aren't working, or do not exist at all. So, what is the real aim of adware?

  • Adware differs in that it shows useless ads on all sites that the user views and also, on the desktop. Scammers want adware to seem good, so it might be disguised as one of hundreds of worthy tools for text redacting, web-browsing, data archiving, etc. Ads appear as pop-ups, separate blocks in the browser or links.
  • Browser toolbars show ads too, but less actively than the previous two types of adware. Their main function is to collect information about victim's search queries and visited pages, which are then passed on to web-criminals for further research. Such information might be used to trick the user or passed to third parties for a decent price.
  • Infection with a hijacker invites another sort of trouble. Hijackers periodically open a special webpage in user's browser that passes to one of the sites with advertising and suspicious links.

The mentioned tools combined and each of them could be used for different methods of Internet-scam. Despite the difference in methods, they have one fact in common: they were originally developed for scam and deception. Except for evident discomfort, such as the flood of ads and pop-ups, there is a perilous feature of Find My Tab and it is the critical lowering of system's security.

 

So, you understand what goals are targeted by malware and, we will tell you how to locate it. Now you know that the primary red flag of advertising software is an increase in the number of ads. The second symptom is the emersion of weird software on your machine that you haven’t installed. This happens when victim clicks on all links that adware provides, visiting the strange pages and loading programs from there. If such thing happens, you might not even understand how virus gets into the system.

The symptom №2 is a hard deceleration of the machine, and an increase in the boot time of the system. Slowdown of PC performance isn't exclusively the consequent of adware, but this happens really often. The ground for this retardation is that unlike ordinary software, virus has to permanently act, showing pop-ups and redirecting customer to undesired pages. This means that adware is starting at system boot and shutting down only when the PC stops working. When there are too much of them, their synchronous work overloads the system, and takes so many resources that reliable tools simply cannot operate. When the PC is in such condition, it starts to suffer from lags, trouble shutdowns and critical errors of different services. If you see any of these marks - you should check the machine with a good anti-virus or eliminate all adware in manual manner.
