AlphaShoppers

Adware includes a long list of various species, but the most famous of them are browser hijackers, browser toolbars and adware. These tools were initially created unuseful, so their functions are aimed only at getting money by tricking customers. Internet-criminals try hard to persuade customers that these programs are helpful: they create ample descriptions and promise incredible usability and advantage. What do these tools actually do?

  • Adware differs in that it places ad units on each website that the user visits and sometimes, on the desktop. Such utilities could be disguised as anything: system cleaners, software for updating and downloading drivers, tools for finding movies and music, video and audio players and even more. Ads emerge as pop-ups, distinct units in the browser or links.
  • Browser hijackers do not show advertising on the reliable sites. Instead of pop-ups, they make the users to visit the suspicious web pages. This software helps the foul website owners to create traffic and endangers the whole PC.
  • Browser toolbars also perform advertising functions, but not as active as the previous two sorts of advertising tools. In addition, they gather info about user's search queries and viewed web pages, which are then passed on to web-criminals for further usage. This data can be used against its owner or passed to third parties for some money.

All these programs together and any of them might be used for different types of advertising fraud. Despite the difference in modes, they are all similar by the fact that they were from the very beginning created for cheat and deceit. Besides the evident discomfort, such as the growing number of advertising and links, there is another feature of AlphaShoppers: the abnormal decrease of system's defense.

 

Other symptom is a hard deceleration of the computer, and a growth in its loading time. Retardation of machine's speed is not exclusively the consequent of virus, but this appears quite often. The reason for this retardation is that in contradistinction to ordinary software, AlphaShoppers works all the time, generating ads and redirecting user to unwanted websites. This means that the program is starting at system startup and shutting down only when the system stops working. If 3-5 such programs will get into your machine, their contemporaneous operation overburdens the system, and needs so many resources that useful software simply cannot perform its functions. When the computer is in this condition, it suffers from retardation, emergency turn-offs and critical errors of important services. If you notice any of these symptoms - you should check the system with reputable anti-virus or clean it of viruses in manual mode.

When you understood what is AlphaShoppers, you should understand how to locate it. It is apparent that the main sign of advertising software is the rise in the number of banners. The second attribute is the appearance of extraneous software on your PC that you have not installed. This might appear if user passes the link to direct loading of the dangerous file. If such thing happens, you might not even notice how virus penetrates the system.
