Topmedia24

Topmedia24, in its core, is an undesired utility, made to lure some money out of you. Well, it’s not literally about the present money that are in your pockets, but more like you inadvertently doing some work for Internet-fraudsters, following the links they give to you, and attending dangerous websites. We’ll go deeper into it in today's entry, and define everything at length. In case you don’t need that, and fully aware of how to keep Topmedia24 off your system – you can just jump the informative paragraphs and head to the closing part with deletion instructions.

If you want to eliminate Topmedia24 and other similar programs, you'd better understand what they are and why they were developed. Their single aim is to display advertising materials, and by displaying them to you and forcing you to follow them, Topmedia24 develops some movement on the webpages it struggles to "boost". Most ads Topmedia24 provides are fully fake and are created to lure you into visiting the webpage, but a few of them offer goods. It’s a bit of a compliment to say goods, actually, as they’re more likely to be called “bads” if you know what we mean. The thing about Topmedia24’s ads is that they aren't true. If a page is boosted through adware, this means that it cannot use any legit method. It also means that the website is somehow unqualified to be advertised in a legitimate way. Care to guess how would swindlers force users to pay for a thing like that? Of course, through an annoying advertising activity, i.e., making loads of links appear on peoples’ monitors until they click on a single one.

  • "Bundling". It’s the method when Topmedia24 or any similar is merged with a few other utilities. All of them are either trashy or dangerous except one. Usually, the helpful one is on the bundle's name, and the user thinks that he’s installing it, while all he gets is the whole lot of trash. You should remember that there is a moment when you're installing a package when it's possible to select the advanced installation technique and reject the installation of suspicious utilities.

  • Straightforward installation. A lot of users get infected by undesired programs assuming that they're useful, and the only technique to stop it is to understand how to tell a malicious program from a trusted one. Usually, they try to look like reputable tools and choose the ones whose activities can't be clearly defined.

Some hackers like system optimization programs and add-ons for social networks. If you're installing such a tool – you’d better find a whole bunch of feedback regarding it on reputable websites prior to installing it.
  • Fake email. This way is applied less widely than the previous method, yet you shouldn't underestimate scammers. The trick is that at times you receive strange letters from unknown mailboxes. Sometimes it’s just a mis-sent letter, but in case this letter has anything attached to it – do not click on it.
