Advertising tools include a fairly long list of miscellaneous forms, but the very popular of them are browser hijackers, browser toolbars and adware. You have to realize that they aren't the useful tools that offer other useful software - they were created to generate tons of ads. Scammers are trying very hard to persuade people that suchlike tools are reliable: they describe them very well and promise great efficiency and profit. What do these programs actually do?

  • Adware's primary feature is that it exposes ad units on all sites that the user visits and sometimes, on the desktop. Such tools could be masked almost to anything: tools for finding movies and music, video and audio players, system cleaners, software for updating and downloading drivers and much more. Ads which are displayed by advertising programs are not reliable and you better not click on them.
  • Toolbars are less irritating than browser hijackers and adware, but except advertising actions they also collect the info about victim's system and about his activity on the Internet. This information is of considerable value for each advertising company.
  • Browser hijackers do not place ads on extraneous web-pages. Hijackers, from time to time open a special page in victim's browser that passes to one of the sites with ads and untrusted links.

Every of mentioned kinds of adware uses particular methods to get into the system and to work in it. They have one common feature - they all cause inconvenience to the user and prevent the victim from browsing the Web. In addition, since all adware is trying to force you to view the untrusted and even perilous sites, they invite other malware to enter the PC.

 

Now you see what goals are pursued by Fidonav and, we will tell you how to find it. You already know that the main red flag of adware is an increase in the number of spam. Another symptom is the emersion of strange programs on your machine that you don't remember downloading. This may appear if user passes the link to download of the malicious file. Harmful tools act stealthy so you can't see that you actually installed them.

The mark #2 is a noticeable retardation of the machine, and an increase in the boot time of the system. You should know that suchlike issues frequently arise for other causes, not related to adware. The reason for such deceleration is that in contradistinction to regular software, Fidonav has to permanently act, displaying ads and redirecting user to undesired web-pages. It means that virus is running at computer's boot and shutting down only with the whole machine. If 3-5 such tools will get onto your PC, their simultaneous operation overloads the system, and needs so much resources that good software simply can't run. This can induce emergency shutdowns, critical errors of important programs and deceleration. If you witness any of these symptoms - you need to scan the computer via good anti-virus or remove all viruses by hand.
