Tools for advertising activities are a distinct series of dangerous software, called adware and redirects.

Advantages of different removal methods


How to protect the computer?

To prevent suchlike problems in the future, you should know closely in which way Search Sidecubes got into your system. Malware use lots of ways, but we'll assort them on three main groups:

  • Infection through an untrusted web-site. When you are on a web-site, you see a banner with a suggestion to download brilliant software, which may greatly assist you in some things. Suchlike tools have the confined list of features: the implementation of definite actions in Twitter, self download of each update or driver for your hardware, the improvement of Internet surfing, giving the info about beneficial offers on the Net, search for the newest toll-free content such as music, games and movies. All of these features are already built into the browsers, or is in the operating system tools list, which means - these programs are simply useless, and the site that spreads them is, probably, malicious.
  • Viruses can be attached to good software. Almost each unpaid program suggests you to get something except the needed tool. You download the tool, and then you see the window with the proposal to install the super-useful file manager, browser, the new extension for it, antivirus, and, maybe, few another strange, but highly "useful" tools. You do not even need to decide anything because the all fields are already checked, and in some cases, it is very difficult to decline the unwanted installations.
  • The direct installation by user. Clever composed description of the program and its useful (and nonexistent) advantages misinforms the customer, and he installs the tool.

The penetration via viral e-mail attachment is also highly effective, but this technique is used most of the cases by malware and ransomware, and not by adware. We suppose that if you're reading these words, Search Sidecubes will be fully removed from your workstation. The dependable antiviruses know how to recognize malware, but if you prefer the by-hand disposal - you must know all signs of infection.

  • Windows boots very slowly. The tools that run at startup are, very often, the reason of tardy boot. Check the taskbar, and delete the undesired software from Control Panel.
  • Hype is everywhere. If the quantity of hype has grown up dramatically - that is, most likely, the unwanted software.
  • Critical failures when using tools, shutdown or reboot of a machine without the user's resolution.
  • You notice many installed tools that you've never seen before. If the tool appears in your system without your resolution - it is, nothing else than the adware.

Each of these symptoms indicates the virus threat, and if you react in time - you will prevent the harm. Be cautious on the Net, track the status of your machine, and it will be ready for any job.
