Novice users say that most of dangerous programs are made without any specific reason. Viruses slow down your computer, prevent the functions of certain programs, and web-fraudsters like it so much that they want to spend days, designing annoying viruses. In fact, all dangerous programs have their function, and this feature helps hackers to earn money. For example, the incessant showing of suspicious ads on every website isn't accidental. All this advertisement is shown to earn money on referrals. Simply stated, payment of advertising services is made based on the quantity of clicks done on the advertisement, or the quantity of clicks from pop-up to the website. All adware's actions are aimed at making you pass the link. Even if you don't take interest in adware's ads - the click might still be performed, in order to close an inconvenient irritating banner. Advertisers don't want to know how the click was made, and scammers will obtain their money both for the decent click and for the undesired one. However this reward isn’t large, do not forget about the number of infected machines! Credible operator can decide that suchlike ads are trustworthy, and try to find something fine among these offers, doing hundreds of clicks every day.

Advertisement tools are being distributed in different methods: with help of infected web-pages on which the viral download may begin at each click, and via installation in bundles. The first technique might be easily avoided: you must only visit websites which are considered secure, and appear on the first positions in browser. Except that, pay attention to the notifications of your anti-viral tool and browser. To guard your machine from the penetration through the second technique, you have to carefully monitor the installation of all programs. Installation in bundles is simple: advertising program is added to installation packages of free programs. You install some program and the pop-up window during installation appears a suggestion to install some more programs. In some variants you just cannot decline the process, and in some - there's no notification about extraneous programs. Of course, all programs except the needed one will be useless or even perilous. According to this, when you see the option between “recommended installation” and “install for experienced users” – pick the second option. Do this each time you install something - and your system will be much cleaner.
