What is Chrome Better History

Chrome Better History main aim is to show you different ads and redirects, for example, to Unanalytics. Right after the penetration, Chrome Better History switches the controls of your browser. It’s all that it's capable of doing, as the main function in this play is passed to the scammers' search engine to which you're being redirected. So, adware removes the default start page and the pre-set search and places the scammer’s webpage in their place. After that, instead of searching via the reputable Google, Bing, Yahoo or any other search you're used to – you’ll surf the Internet via the miserable scammers' tool, displaying suspicious results ads pop-up windows and other suchlike trash. Chrome Better History also alters the controls of browser shortcuts so that in case you return the normal settings, you will automatically open the scammers’ search in a first tab.

Chrome Better History can't be erased as a regular program, and if the customer tries it - the virus will come back. It happens thanks to the Chrome Better History's defensive systems, and we will define their essence:

  • The most usual manner of security is to develop a system task on the recovery of Chrome Better History after its deletion. Scheduled tasks aren’t typically utilized by common PC users, so the adware just creates a task to confirm if it is installed, and if it’s not – to get and install it one more time. This task is being run each time you turn on the PC, and that’s why Chrome Better History keeps reinstalling.
  • Another way has the similar goal, but it uses the OS's registry instead of the system tasks. You must clear the registry to beat this technique, but it’s a pretty hard task for a novice operator. The other registry entries are very important, and by erasing one of them, you may cause significant damage to the OS.

Chrome Better History, as you might have guessed already, is adware. It belongs to a specific category of programs that cannot do anything useful, as it was created to achieve only one goal: to irritate you. We're joking, the mere annoyance isn’t its direct purpose, but it’s lightly delivered when adware does what it does – distributes the advertising content. When the adware gets inside, it changes the controls of your browser and displays you as much spam as it can and even more, ensuring that they have your attention. Hackers get some tiny amount of money for every click you're making, so you can realize why the banners appear again and again: it’s a honeypot. In the paragraphs below, we will tell you in which way adware infected the workstation and how it can be protected against suchlike threats. In case you already know that and just want to get rid of adware as soon as possible – skip the coming sections and proceed to the uninstalling instructions.

 

How Chrome Better History got on your computer

To simplify everything, we will picture the whole story from the beginning. 99% of the advertisement-oriented viruses are each other's clones, repeated thousands of times and passed to third-grade web-criminals with easy changes made. Some evil dudes purchased Chrome Better History from the Dark Web, added their logo and published it on file-exchanging services all over the Internet. And after that, you came and installed it. Okay, you're saying that you haven't searched for a program that will drive you crazy? Maybe, you needed a perfect recipe to spoil your PC, and found a direct link to Chrome Better History downloader? Missed again? OK, in that case, it could be another utility that is actually helpful. Sort of a gratis software created by a not-so-famous company, or a hacked replica of a paid software you just don't want to buy.

This way is called “affiliate installation”, and it's based on that scammers unite the installers of several perilous programs and a sole helpful software into one "bundle". The principal feature of that package is that its pattern detains a victim from discovering its content inside of it. On one of the middle steps, you're allowed to see a suggestion to install additional tools, with the required fields filled and the first desire is to install them and proceed. And you pressed that button. Don't forget about another manner, with the “installation manners”. It's pretty simple: the expert installation manner means that customer may decide a folder for a tool to be installed, which extra modules do you require, and which you don’t. In case of Chrome Better History, picking the easy installation means that you allow all the garbage from the package into your workstation laptop.
