How Thegoodcaster.com Infects The PC

Thegoodcaster.com/redirect/57a764d042bf8 is simultaneously entirely perilous, pointless, time-consuming and irritative. Why would anyone try to download such a program? There's just one apparent option – because he didn’t realize what he is downloading. Adware doesn’t have a single useful feature, yet it has a skillful crew of swindlers, proficient in social engineering, and they are well aware of how to make a victim do their work for them. The single method for Thegoodcaster.com to penetrate a customer’s laptop lies in making him think that he downloads a nice program. Here's how it goes:

  • If an advertising program is on the device – nothing can block it from making your Web-surfing a horrible mess. Its first move is to put ads everywhere, and many of them get clicked because a customer tries to hide them.
  • When the package already on the machine, there are two possible scenarios. The victim either spots nothing and ignores everything to get a dangerous utility or discovers a displeasing fact that he's only able to get the entire package of useless programs. Usually, a victim ends up with a device stowed full of adware. To avoid that - read everything that’s contained in the dialogue windows appearing while you're installing any pirated software.
  • Internet criminals make their victim believe that they're installing Thegoodcaster.com on their own accord. They get to it by mixing an advertising utility in a bundle with several other programs, of which only one is relatively beneficial. It can be a hacked copy of a helpful tool. If you want to get around this – just try to install only those programs in whose efficiency you are sure.

This way of infection is also known as affiliated installation, and it is highly appreciated by swindlers everywhere. They make you let adware in manually, which makes them blameless. This method absolves swindlers from all obligations towards a customer, as he installed adware with his own hands, and admitted its user agreement.

How to defend your system from Thegoodcaster.com

You may simply defend the PC from any adware, but it takes some time. We may teach you some tips suitable for everyone, which might assist in making your laptop protected and healthy. The only thing is that you'll need to forfeit some of your browsing practices, such as installing weird programs, clicking through everything you see, not having a valid AV tool, using cracked utilities, etc. The basic tip is to pay attention to the process of installation of every utility. Let’s see how it goes:

  • To escape that – use a not recommended manner, and select only the useful programs. If you're unable to de-select the boxes with other programs – you'd better rethink your plans about installing any tool.
  • While you’re installing any tool, you are being offered to decide on some attached elements, according to your needs. We're talking about an official, beneficial program. If we're talking about a suspicious one, you’ll see an offer to download a few tools which don't have any connection to the initial one, and in most cases they’re not good at all.
  • When the offer appears, read a choice of proposed programs, and select only the utilities you really need. Harmful programs use the term “safe installation” to make you invite more hazardous tools. Actually, the suggested installation manner leads you to downloading the whole lot of unwanted tools.
