How to remove (uninstall) JETMEDIA\CHECKER.EXE

Do you notice aggressive advertising links on your favorite pages that come from the JETMEDIA\CHECKER.EXE search engine? Have you noticed the presence of JETMEDIA\CHECKER.EXE anywhere else on the PC? If any of these is true – your device is infected by adware, and our guide was written to assist you in uninstalling it.



JETMEDIA\CHECKER.EXE, as you could guess so far, is an advertising utility. It’s a kind of software that can do nothing well, as it was created to achieve only one purpose: to irritate you. We're joking, your irritation is not its real task, but it’s freely achieved until the virus does what it does – shows ads. When the virus gets inside, it alters the settings of the browser and shows you tons of pop-ups, making sure that they have your attention. Scammers earn a couple of cents for every click you’ve made, and now you understand why the banners are being displayed again and again: it’s pure money. In the paragraphs below, we will tell you in which way the virus infected the machine and how it can be defended against similar viruses. In case you’re not interested and simply want to uninstall adware as soon as possible – ignore the following sections and go to the deletion tips.

When the infection takes place, JETMEDIA\CHECKER.EXE begins to switch the settings of the browsers. That's its most important function, because the main role in this play is passed to the “search engine” which takes over the browser when you download JETMEDIA\CHECKER.EXE. So, adware changes the pre-set start page and your favorite search engine and places the scammer’s website instead of them. Now you cannot use the reputable Yahoo, Google, Bing or any other search system you're used to – you will surf the Internet with the help of the miserable JETMEDIA\CHECKER.EXE search that shows pop-up windows ads untrusted links and other stuff like that. Another JETMEDIA\CHECKER.EXE's task is to modify the settings of the shortcuts of your browsers in a way that in case you recover the normal controls, you will see the untrusted search system in a first tab.

If you have already bothered to delete the virus, you could mention that it recovers, no matter the number of times you erased it. It happens thanks to the virus' defensive systems, and we'll unriddle to you how they work:

  • A scheduled task is the easiest manner to start the reinstallation of the adware after its elimination. Scheduled tasks aren’t often used by regular PC users, so JETMEDIA\CHECKER.EXE just sets a task to confirm if it is installed, and if it’s not – to download and install it again. That task is being run after each restart, and that’s why JETMEDIA\CHECKER.EXE keeps returning.
  • Another method has the similar goal, but it utilizes the system registry instead of the Scheduled Tasks service. Hackers add a new entry to the registry and you should detect and erase it, which is a bit difficult. The regular registry items are highly important, and by deleting any of them, you may inflict significant damage to the OS.


How JETMEDIA\CHECKER.EXE was installed in the system

To make easier for you, we’ll picture the process in total. 99% of the advertisement-oriented viruses are copies of each other, repeated countless times and sold to various fraudsters with easy alterations made. One of the suchlike guys got this particular copy on an illegal auction, added their logo and published it on file-exchanging sites all over the Net. And then, there was you, downloading it. Wait, are you sure that you didn’t look for adware that will drive you crazy? Or, you wanted a perfect way to endanger your device, and received a direct link to JETMEDIA\CHECKER.EXE installer? Still no? Well, in that case, you sought for another tool that's actually helpful. Some toll-free program created by an unknown company, or a pirated replica of a well-known utility you just don't want to purchase.

We know this method as the “sponsored installation”, and it means that web-criminals are uniting the installation files of 2-3 unwanted programs and a sole useful tool to create one file. The bottom point of this package is that it’s called by the name of a good tool, and a victim doesn't discover its content before the installation begins. On one of the last steps, they display an offer to install more tools, with all checkmarks placed and the first desire is to download them and move on. We suppose that you clicked, if you're on this website today. Don't forget about another technique, with the “methods of installation”. It's pretty simple: the installation for practiced operators is just a manual pick of where you wish a tool to be established, which extra modules do you need, and which you don’t. In JETMEDIA\CHECKER.EXE's case, if you pick the recommended installation, you allow all the trash from the viral installer into your machine.
