How to remove Staticnode (Chrome, Firefox, IE)

Do you see irritating ads on your favorite pages, labeled as “ads by Staticnode”? Have you seen the name Staticnode anywhere else in the system? If something alike happened in later days – your device is infected by adware, and our entry was created to help you to eliminate it.


What is Staticnode

Right after the penetration, Staticnode begins to switch the controls of the browser. It’s the best that it can do, because the main part of this illegal scheme is the fake search engine to which you're being redirected. So, adware clears the default homepage, as well as your favorite search engine and places the unreliable search instead of them. Now, instead of searching via the reliable Bing, Yahoo, Google or any other search engine you like – you’ll browse the Net via the miserable scammers' tool, displaying untrusted links ads pop-up windows of all sorts and colors. The virus also corrupts the properties of the icons of your browsers in a way that even if you recover the regular controls, you'll automatically open the scammers’ search system as the starting tab.

If you've already struggled to get rid of the adware, you might have mentioned that it restores, no matter the number of times you deleted it. It happens thanks to the adware’s protective systems, and we can explain to you how they work:

  • A scheduled task is the easiest method to start the reinstallation of Staticnode after its deletion. Scheduled tasks aren’t typically used by regular computer operators, so the virus just develops a task to see if it’s working, and if it isn't – to get and install it one more time. That task is being executed after each reboot, and that’s why Staticnode keeps returning.
  • The second manner is similar to the first one, but it uses the OS's registry and not the system tasks. Scammers add a specific entry to your registry and you have to detect and erase it, which might be not easy. The regular registry items are needed for the computer to function, and by removing one of them, you might cause significant damage to the system.

Staticnode, as you could guess erenow, is adware. It’s a kind of program that cannot do anything good, as it’s created to do one thing: to drive you mad. We're joking, your annoyance is not its direct aim, but it’s freely delivered when adware does what it does – displays advertising pop-ups. Immediately after the penetration, it alters the controls of the browser and displays you as much spam as it can and sometimes more, ensuring that they've drawn your attention. Hackers receive a little money for each click you're making, and now you see why the banners are being displayed again and again: it’s a honeypot. In the coming sections, we will explain in which manner the virus infected the device and how it can be defended against such viruses. In case you are not interested and just want to delete Staticnode as soon as possible – don't mind the following sections and proceed to the removal instructions.


How Staticnode got into the system

To simplify the things a bit, we’ll describe the process in total. Most of the advertising tools are copies of each other, repeated millions of times and transferred to third-grade scammers with lesser changes made. Some bad dudes bought this particular copy from an underground website, tuned it and put it on file-sharing portals around the Internet. And then, there was you, searching for it. Okay, you're saying that you haven't looked for a utility to irritate you? Or, you wanted some way to waste your device, and got a useful link to Staticnode installation file? Missed again? Okay, in that case, you wanted to download some program that is actually helpful. Some free tool from a not-so-famous developer, or a pirated version of some well-known software you aren't going to purchase.

We know this technique as the “bundled installation”, and it means that swindlers unite the installers of several viruses and a sole helpful tool into one installer. The bottom feature of that package is that its pattern detains a victim from inspecting the programs inside of it. On some of the stages, you're allowed to see an offer to install other programs, with all checkmarks placed and the natural decision is to install them and proceed. And you clicked on it. Don't forget about another technique, with the “methods of installation”. In most cases, the installation for expert operators gives you the ability to decide a folder for a program to be installed, which extra programs do you want, and which you don’t. In Staticnode's case, if you choose the easy installation, you allow all the adware from the viral installer into your workstation laptop.
