This entry is devoted to an adware called Mennythanks and manners to eliminate it. If you suffer from constant advertising on each website, and the speed of your machine has abruptly decreased - this entry will explain you what adware is, identify the fundamental problem and clean the system of undesired programs.

Mennythanks

Advertising software includes a fairly long list of diverse forms, but the very known of them are adware, browser toolbars and redirects. You should realize that the abundance of ads isn't accidental - they were intended to do this from the start. Most of users mistakenly think that such programs are reliable, being fooled by impressive lists of their advantages, but all these advantages either aren't working, or do not exist at all. What do these programs actually do?

  • Infection with a hijacker calls another type of problem. Instead of advertising they make the users to view the malicious web-pages. These programs help the unfair website owners to generate traffic and lowers the protection level of user's workstation.
  • Browser toolbars also perform advertising functions, but less actively than the previous two species of adware. Their main function is to collect information about user's search queries and viewed pages that are then transmitted on to web-criminals for further resale. This data is of significant value for each advertising company.
  • Adware's basic attribute is that it inserts suspicious ads on all sites that the user visits and in some cases, on the desktop. Such tools can be masked almost to anything: video and audio players, system optimizers, driver updaters, software for finding games and movies and much more. Ads show up as distinct units in the browser, links or pop-ups.

Adware is numerous and use separate techniques to penetrate the PC and to work inside of it. Despite the difference in manners, they have one thing in common: they were from the very beginning developed for fraud and deceit. Besides the apparent nuisance, such as the growing number of irritating propositions, Mennythanks has another perilous feature: the abnormal decrease of machine's security.

 

Now you understand what aims are targeted by malware and, it's time to understand how to detect adware and eliminate it. It's obvious that the primary property of advertising tools is an increase in the number of spam. Mark #2 is the appearance of strange software in the system that you haven’t installed. This may happen if user passes the link to download of the malicious file. Suchlike tools are acting stealthy and you can't understand that you actually installed them.

The mark №2 is a strong retardation of the machine, and an enlargement in its loading time. We should say that these problems frequently arise for other reasons, not related to adware. The ground for such deceleration is that in contradistinction to decent software, adware has to permanently work, displaying pop-ups and redirecting victim to suspicious pages. This means that the program is starting at computer's startup and turning off only with the whole PC. If 3-5 such tools will sneak on your machine, their simultaneous operation starts to overburden the system, and needs so many resources that reliable programs just cannot perform its functions. This can call critical errors of different programs, trouble shutdowns and retardation. If you notice any of these signs - you should scan the system via decent anti-virus or clean it of adware manually.
