Adware is used by swindlers to display some fake visits on the sites they have to promote and to sell the substandard or improper goods. We are speaking of “rated R” content, fake utilities, drugs and hacked tools or media files. It's not in question, that the banners created by Notice-Booster.Site are highly suspicious and you have to ignore them under no event. We’ve already said, that Notice-Booster.Site is not harmful independently, but it grows more dangerous if you leave it unattended. If adware dwells for long enough within the OS, it assists more dangerous utilities to infect the workstation occasionally transforming your OS into a dump site.

Notice-Booster.Site

Notice-Booster.Site is a malicious program, but it isn't your ordinary malware. This is the Notice-Booster.Site's strongest advantage and the worst weakness at one stroke, and in case you wonder why - let us start. It's relieving to know that Notice-Booster.Site isn't perilous by itself, which means that it won’t spoil operator's data or spoil the entire system as regular viruses do. It will just generate loads of advertising in the shape of links appearing out of thin air on your screen, pop-ups and big banners. You might refrain from clicking them all, but it's a great nuisance nevertheless. The bad thing is that unlike viruses, promotional tools are on rare occasions recognized by common AV. They cannot spot it because of unusual behavioral algorithms, and cannot stop it from being installed because customers do it all by hand.

 

How to protect your PC against Notice-Booster.Site

Before we proceed to the removal, you'd better realize the means to protect your device against adware. Let us begin by remembering the methods of penetration. We're aware of many infection methods which malicious utilities like, yet the most common of them for advertising programs is the affiliate installation, also known as bundling. Here’s how it goes:

  • Hackers choose a nice tool that is well-liked among the ordinary users and mingle it with 3-4 advertising programs. The bundle is designed in a way that you couldn’t see its contents until you begin the installation process. In some cases, it happens when viruses are already inside the system, and the user sees that he's installed not quite what he wanted.
  • In time of the installation process, a victim sees a menu where he has to select between a preferable and advanced methods of installation. The recommended method is pre-selected so that each victim who likes to click “OK” selected it instantly.
  • When a user finds a bundle, he believes that it is a nice utility and installs it. Occasionally, antiviruses warn you about the possibly undesired contents of an installation file, but scammers know a useful knack to deal with it. The good programs they use as honeypots are mostly the hacked versions of official utilities. That's why users expect that they might raise the alarm and just disregard the alerts.
  • Web-Internet-criminals put the installer on a sought-after file-sharing website. They upload it to as many platforms as they can, to increase the number of possible victims.

If you didn’t reject the recommended installation manner – you’ve installed plenty of suspicious utilities besides of a helpful tool, and now we will help you with their uninstalling.

How to recognize adware when you see one?

You may wonder how you might detect adware if an antiviral utility failed to do this, but we are going to answer this question in a moment. The thing is that the antiviral program (if you’ve got one), is detecting suspicious utilities through their signature. Fraudsters change the structure of their viruses every week by doing small changes without changing the overall aim. We won't recommend you to dig into adware’s code, yet we did some thinking about how scammers would hide a hazardous program while it stays in front of the customer’s face. You should think over the type of each program you're installing. Don’t ever install browser enhancement add-ons and add-ons for social networks which want to give you some new sorts of statistics. System cleaners are also highly dubious, as well as any cracked tools, like PhotoShop, Excel, PowerPoint, Word, etc. If you refrain from installing these utilities, the odds of infection will drop significantly.
