FireQuestions

We're sure that you’ve understood by now, yet we’ll state it once more: FireQuestions is the program that displays advertisement to you.

What is FireQuestions

FireQuestions is the newest utility of its kind, but the vast majority of the modifications invented through its lifetime were absolutely cosmetic. It doesn’t need to be in progress, as it doesn’t rely on some sophisticated coding solutions in its work – it depends on user. Adware belongs to the plainest, but the very beneficial undesired programs, which let web-criminals to gain their profit illegally while being out of danger. Naturally, it doesn't look legal for you: unwanted program infects the system, makes it in sluggish, invites many other suchlike tools aboard, and shoves the major pile of advertising down customers' throats. You have many things to say about it, but the fact is that FireQuestions did enter the OS with your approval. We will talk about it later, and now – let’s explain what advertising tool does in the system.

As we’ve mentioned before, FireQuestions is not a virus, as it can’t copy itself and distribute itself through the Internet. It has you to download it, and after that – FireQuestions has customer to install it. When you install FireQuestions you will have to acknowledge that you have read EULA, in which the functions of adware are openly stated. Of course, the straight installation of adware is an uncommon case. Affiliate infection is the most preferred technique, and we will talk about it below. Sometimes victim isn't responsible for FireQuestions getting into the laptop, as it was downloaded by a Trojan. But guess how the Trojan has managed to get inside? That’s right, it has made it through one of the described manners.

 

How FireQuestions gets into the system

Sponsored download is the easiest, very effective and swiftest manner to spread a program through the Net. Swindlers just pick a helpful gratis utility, add some useless programs to it, and wrap it all in one installation file. During the installation of a useful utility, you’ll receive a suggestion to install the others. On occasion you cannot choose the needed installation manner at all, but in most cases users just don’t notice it as they’re clicking their way to installation without looking at the information in all those annoying menus. Now you understand why we've told you that you have invited adware onto the machine.

How to protect the system

In this part we will teach you how you may guard the PC from viruses, Trojans, pop-ups and the majority of other malicious tools. It's a pretty serious deal, and will require lots of efforts. The manner comprises some habits and patterns you need to follow, but there’s good news too: you’ll get used to it. Here’s what we wanted to explain:

  • And, of course,, you should inspect all information that appears while you're installing any gratis tool. Let’s put it like this: it's not necessary to the full License Agreement, but you should neglect offers to install anything besides the program that you've wanted. If those offers are displayed – you’d better watch out.
  • Our main tip to defend your machine is to forget about cracked utilities. If an utility is toll-free and you are certain that it can be trusted – just download it from the reliable sources, and there won't be any problems. In case of a cracked software – there are no official websites – just unreliable file-sharing websites. You never find good protection there, and every file could be infected.
  • You should not click on each banner you see. This is the custom you have to build: you're looking for information – get it from Google. If advertisement shows up on some site or on your machine, it doesn’t mean that you need to click it. If you receive the suggestion to download some utility and says that it’s useful – google its name. The better results come when you add "uninstall".
  • You should realize that lots of websites are not to be trusted. Fraudsters might make you think that your PC is infected, by locking the browser and forcing you to allow an installation of any other utility. If the website's not responding – just close your browser with the help of Task Manager, and you’ll be alright. No site is capable of scanning your machine for undesired utilities within ten seconds and tell whether or not it is infected.
