In this guide, we’ll make it clear for you, how Five gets into the OS, which things it does there and how to beat it. The elimination information can be found below the main part, so if you've already heard everything we want to tell – just skip it and go to the instructions.

What is Five

Five is the last adware, but the greater part of the modifications performed through latter years were only cosmetic. Five doesn’t need to advance, because it doesn’t count upon the sophisticated code in its work – it depends on you. Advertising programs are the least complex, but the very gainful unwanted tools, which help scammers to gain their monies half-legally while being out of danger. Naturally, it doesn't look like that from victim's point of view: unknown program crawls into the machine, turns it unstable, calls many other similar tools into it, and pushes the major pile of banners down your throat. In most cases, victims have many things to say about Five, yet the fact is that you let it to get into the PC. We’ll talk about it in the following sections, and now – let’s figure out what advertising program does in the system.

We've already told you that Five isn't a virus, because it can’t develop its copies and automatically spread over the Net. It requires potential victim to download it, and after that – Five has user to install it. The installation process includes confirmation of EULA, where all manners of adware's action are openly stated. Naturally, users don't search for Five directly. Bundled infection is much more usual, and we will explain what it is below. In some cases victim isn't liable for adware infecting the computer, as it was installed by a Trojan. But guess how the Trojan has managed to get inside? Of course, it was done through one of the given methods.


How Five gets into the system

Affiliate infection is the very productive, swiftest and plainest manner to spread a tool through the Net. Fraudsters just take several tool, one of which is decent and all the others aren’t, and unite them in one installation file. When you are installing a popular tool, you’ll see an offer to install everything else. On occasion you can't pick the right installation method at all, but in most cases customers simply do not see it as they are okaying their way to install the package without reading what’s written in all those irritating windows. Now you understand why we've stated that you have invited Five onto the device.

How to protect the system

We know the manners to protect the system from Trojans, malware, pop-ups and most of other undesired tools. It's a pretty serious business, and will require some efforts. The way comprises a few behavioral patterns and habits you need to follow, but it's not that bad and you will form a habit soon. Here’s our advice:

  • Our main advice to protect your system will be to forget about pirated programs. When a tool is free of charge and you know for sure that it can be trusted – just find the vendor’s site, and there won't be any problems. For pirated program – there are no official sites – just unreliable file-sharing portals. You won’t download reliable protection on those sites, and each file might be infected.
  • You should realize that some sites are bad. Fraudsters want to assure you that the PC is infested, by taking over the browser and making you confirm a download of any other tool. If the site's seems to be lagging – quickly close your browser through Task Manager, and open it again without visiting the malicious site. No website is able to scan the system for malicious programs within a few moments and find out if it’s infected or not.
  • Another important thing is that, you have to monitor the information that arises while you're installing any free program. We'd put it like this: you don’t have to the full EULA, but you should neglect suggestions to install any software except the utility that you've wanted. If you see these offers – you need to watch out.
  • You should forget about clicking. That’s the wont you'd better develop: you're looking for some utility – get it from Google. If advertising pops up on any page or on your computer, you'd better resist from clicking on it. If someone proposes you to download any tool and states that it’s great – use Google to figure out what it is. The prime proofs come when you add "eliminate".
