How to remove (uninstall)

Adware is utilized by fraudsters to put up some imitation views on the sites they need to boost and to advertise the poor-quality or inappropriate services. We are talking about “18+” content, cracked utilities or media files, suspicious programs and counterfeit goods. Needless to say, that the banners from are highly questionable and should not be clicked under any circumstances. Womatonsha ads are not dangerous independently, but it grows more harmful if it escapes user's attention. If an advertising tool spends a week or two inside the system, it assists more unwanted tools to crawl in thus turning the OS into a junkyard. You might see these spoiled computer from time to time, overflowed by useless utilities, unable to launch in less than fifteen minutes, horribly lagging, etc. You had better delete malware ASAP, to avoid these issues with your own workstation. is an annoying utility, but it cannot be called malware. This is the Womatonsha’s strongest pro and the biggest problem in equal measure, and if you wonder why - let us begin. The good thing is that is not perilous by itself, meaning that it will not harm customer's information or vandalize the system as usual viruses do. It is going to display to you tons of ads in the form of links emerging without any logic on the display, pop-ups and big banners. You can hide them all, but it's a major nuisance no matter how you put it. The bad thing is that unlike viruses, promotional tools are hardly ever spotted by regular antiviruses. They are unable to catch it because of strange behavioral patterns, and cannot reject its installation since victims do it all by hand.

How to protect your PC against

Before we go to the elimination, you'd better remember how to guard your laptop from dangerous programs. Let us begin with familiarizing with the manners of getting into the computer. There are many infection ways which suspicious utilities like, but the most regular of them for advertising programs is the sponsored infection, AKA bundling. This is its method of operation:

  • When the customer installs the bundle, he sees a dialogue window in which he has to pick one between a recommended and not recommended manners of installation. The recommended variant is pre-chosen so that every customer who likes to click “OK” picked it automatically.
  • The installer is being uploaded on a well-liked file-sharing site. They upload it to as many portals as they're able, to increase the quantity of probable victims.
  • Swindlers pick a useful program that is widely known among the common users and blend it with 3-4 pieces of adware. The installer is made so that you can't see its contents until you start the installation. Often, it occurs past the installation, when the user realizes that he has got not quite what was planned.
  • When user notices a bundle, he thinks that it is a trusted program and lets it in. Sometimes, AV programs warn the victims about the probably dangerous contents of a bundle, but scammers know a cool trick to take on this. The good utilities used as name for packages are usually the cracked versions of official software. That is why people expect that they may raise the alarm and simply disregard the alerts.

If you haven't declined the recommended installation technique – you’ve got a lot of hazardous utilities instead of a useful utility, and we can help you with their elimination.

How to recognize adware when you see one?

You might wonder how a customer might recognize adware if an antivirus failed to do that, but we are going to explain this in a moment. The thing is that your antivirus (if there's one installed on your machine), recognizes viruses by knowing their structure. Scammers modify the code of their viruses at least each few days by doing minor changes without changing the overall purpose. We do not think that you should look into’s structure, yet we have a few thoughts about how fraudsters may hide a malicious tool when it stays in front of the user’s face. You have to look at the species of each tool you download. Do not ever download browser improvement utilities and tools for social networks which suggest you some interesting sorts of statistics. System cleaners are extremely questionable too, as well as all cracked programs, like Word, PowerPoint, PhotoShop, Excel, etc. By refraining from installing these ones, the chances of penetration will drop significantly.
