How to remove (uninstall) StreamFrenzy

In this item, we will tell you about two important things: what is StreamFrenzy and how to delete it. We will also assist you to defend the workstation from other undesired programs.

What is StreamFrenzy

StreamFrenzy

StreamFrenzy is the adware: the software that is totally not useful and does not have a single advantage. Except that, StreamFrenzy causes significant damage to the system in total, and that detriment rises proportionally to the time that the StreamFrenzy spent within the system. The majority of adware can be considered the products of a single developer. The rest of the swindlers using them only change the logo, in rare cases making some improvements, and more often not adding any changes, simply by purchasing a pre-set installation file for selling of the advertisement program at illegal websites. The reason for the wide propagation of these utilities can be explained literally by one clause. adware permits hackers to receive decent amounts of money being in total safeness. Naturally, the largest frauds like botnets, including a lot of computers, draw the consideration of government, but minor projects, in most cases stay scot-free. It happens because adware, like each legitimate program today, has specified functions, and before installing such program, the user formally accepts the terms for its usage, by checking the box. Usually, no one cares about terms and conditions, and this directly benefits scammers.

 

It's time to inspect the actual actions of adware and the consequences of contamination. Fraudsters spread StreamFrenzy through simple method known as sponsored installation. The main point of the manner consists in affiliating 3-4 "viruses" into one pack with one good tool, and placing the pack for gratis access. If the licensed tool placed in the bundle is really helpful, adware will quickly spread over the Internet. Such method is simple and inexpensive, and lets scammers to attain several purposes simultaneously:

  • Scammers have protected themselves through method of outspread, as victims willingly install the viruses and accept the conditions of their applying.
  • Bundling doesn't claim much efforts and funds: hackers only had to place perilous files on the well-known website once, and betweentimes check it to see if download is closed.
  • Each bundle consists of 3-4 viruses, so, hackers do not have to develop a certain description and a web-page for each of them.

The package's habitude is that user can't do anything with it except for the installation. In time of the installation the customer sees a dialogue box where he should pick from two installation variants - "reliable" and "advanced". The names of those variants can change a bit based on the version, but the main point is similar. Talking about licensed tools, the emergence of this window means that the customer can pick the starting settings or remove useless applications, but in the case of StreamFrenzy such window is the possibility to guard your workstation from virus infection. If the user just skips the window, or intentionally chooses the "recommended" technique, then everything from the bundle bypass the protection of his computer.
