How to remove (uninstall) Seveningusha

Have you seen annoying banners on your favorite sites, tagged as “advertising by Seveningusha”? Did you see the occurrence of Seveningusha anywhere else on the computer? If those things are true – the system is infested with adware, and our guide will help you in eliminating it.


What is Seveningusha

Seveningusha, as you could guess already, is an advertising tool. It belongs to a special sort of tools that can't do anything useful, as it’s made to achieve only one goal: to annoy you. Well, the mere irritation is not its real task, but it’s easily delivered when the virus does its job – displays ads. Immediately after the penetration, it alters the settings of the browser and displays you a heap of pop-ups, making sure that they've drawn your attention. Fraudsters earn a little money for every click you're making, so you can see why the banners are being displayed again and again: it’s pure money. In the next paragraphs, we will explain in which way Seveningusha infected the workstation and how you might protect it against suchlike threats. If you know everything that you need on that topic and simply want to remove Seveningusha ASAP – don't mind the following sections and look at the deletion guide.

As soon as the infestation takes place, Seveningusha changes the controls of the browsers. That's its most important aim, as the main function in this play is given to the scammers' search engine which takes over your browser as soon as you install Seveningusha. So, Seveningusha removes your default start page and the default search and places the fake search in their place. Now you can't use the reputable Bing, Google, Yahoo or another search system you like – you’ll browse the Web via the low-quality Seveningusha search, giving away ads pop-ups fake pages of all types and colors. Seveningusha also changes the settings of browser shortcuts in a way that even if you recover the regular controls, you'll automatically open the fraud search in a first tab.

Seveningusha cannot be erased as a common program, and if the operator attempts to do it - the adware will come back. It occurs because of the Seveningusha's defensive algorithms, and we'll explain to you how they work:

  • The easiest way of defense is to make a system task on the recovery of Seveningusha after its removal. Such tasks are not often utilized by usual PC users, so Seveningusha just develops a task to check if it is working, and if it’s not – to download and install it again. That task is being executed every time you turn on the computer, and thanks to it Seveningusha keeps reinstalling.
  • The second technique is very much like the first one, but it utilizes the OS's registry instead of the system tasks. Scammers create a specific value to the registry and you have to detect and erase it, which is a bit difficult. The other registry entries are needed for your device to function, and by erasing one of them, you may bring significant injury to the OS.


How Seveningusha got into the system

To simplify everything, we’ll describe the process in total. 99% of the advertising programs are each other's clones, repeated many times and sold to third-grade hackers after little visual improvements. One of those lads purchased this particular copy from the Dark Web, added their logo and published it on file-sharing services around the Internet. And then, there was you, downloading it. Okay, you’re sure that you haven't looked for adware that will annoy you? Possibly, you wanted some screwing-it-all-up utility for the computer, and somebody gave you a link to Seveningusha installer? Still no? OK, then, it could be another program that's really useful. Some gratis software from an unknown developer, or a cracked version of some paid tool you're not going to pay for.

We know this way as the “bundled installation”, and it means that fraudsters merge the installers of 2-3 hazardous programs and one good utility to create one file. The primary feature of that bundle is that its name is the name of a good utility, and you don’t see which tools are there until the installation starts. On one of the middle stages, they show an offer to download extra tools, with all checkmarks filled and the mouse cursor already hovers over “proceed”. And you clicked on it. It might have been a little different: there could be the “installation methods”. Usually, the installation for experienced customers means that you can decide a folder for a utility to be installed, which additional tools do you need, and which you don’t. In Seveningusha's case, choosing the suggested method of installation means that you let all the trash from the bundle into your system.
