The red flags that are described above tell us that the system is infected by some sort of advertising tool, and this software should be deleted.

Hackers don't develop dangerous programs only to irritate you, and each adware has exact aims. But, if you believe that the description of this software is true is really helpful - you've made a mistake. Typically, the specification of each undesired tool states that it will be extremely useful. Most of adware promise to assist in web-browsing. Search for sales, discounts and deals in the Web, performing some functions in Twitter and assistance in the finding of latest games, music or movies - these are the functions that 99% of adware promise to perform. The primary thing you should do when you're going to install any program - to figure out, is it really useful? Haven't you thought about why the functions of advertising tools are so indistinct? The "safer", "better" or "faster" search in the Web is a perfect example of suchlike function, because these parameters are very vague and nearly impossible to observe. According to this, advertising software do not do anything, and just take up space in the computer's memory? Not at all! This software performs a highly important function, - to let Internet scammers to obtain thousands of dollars a day from novice users.

There is a perception on the Internet that the majority of viruses have no specific goal. Dangerous programs slow down your machine, prevent the functions of reliable software, and web-scammers like it so much that they want to spend their money and time to create silly and irritating adware. Alright, I'm joking. The adware always have a purpose, and even if the aim is obscure - you'll understand it later. For instance, the incessant display of dozens of ads on every website isn't an accident. All this advertisement is generated to make money from clicks. Simply said, defrayment of promotional services is made according to the quantity of clicks done on the ad, or the quantity of clicks from link to the website. So, the more ads adware shows you, the higher is the chance that you will be interested and click on the link. Even if you're not interested in hacker's proposals - the click might still be done, at least to hide an unwanted intrusive banner. The system doesn't want to know how the clicks were done, and hackers will get their money both for the decent click and for the unwanted one. Despite this amount isn’t large, do not neglect the amount of infected computers! Gullible customer can think that these ads are good, and look for something interesting among adware propositions, doing hundreds of referrals per day. According to our information, the number of victims of Quick Searcher is at least 50 000, and if all of them are making 5-10 clicks daily, the swindler's income don't seem so insignificant.
