How to remove (uninstall) is the advertising-oriented program. Similar software differ from ordinary viruses in that their actions cannot be identified as really viral. may appear as a useful software which displays you the best offers on the Internet, adds remarkable functions to your browser, and performs another things. If will dwell in your computer for a week or more you'll see, that it is not truly helpful, and will endeavour to remove it. But, malware can restore itself past the disposal. In this guide, we want to tell you what is, how to deal with it, and how to shield your machine from viruses in the future.

The dangerous software that show you ads and prevent to surf the Web can be separated on two kinds: adware and hijackers. The first kind attacks the entire system, showing you hype and advertisements on each new tab in browser and even if the browser is closed. The hijackers act exclusively in the browsers by manipulating the results of your searches, providing incorrect output and redirecting you to infected websites. Both series of malware have smartly made lists of their advantages and profits to delude you. The state of your PC is getting more unstable in direct proportion to the time that malware had lived in it. If you'll leave unwanted program unattended shortly, you'll notice that the computer is full filled by all types of undesired, hazardous or even really dangerous software. Spontaneous shutdowns, low speed of response, fatal errors, restarts and the poor performance of the PC will become very frequent. When the PC comes into suchlike state, people begin to look for a solution, and understand that it was desirable to remove the malware long ago, or not to use it at all.


After the infection adware performs some actions, to protect itself against uninstalling, and to prepare for action. First of all, it makes a task to restore in case of uninstalling, and to get updates from the developer's website. Thereafter starts to change browser settings. When the default search engine and the home-page are altered, you'll always see the dangerous web-page in all browsers and on every tab. After that, hijacker alters the browser options, related to advertisement. Most browsers now have a service that hides the banners, unwanted advertising, pop-ups and other sorts of hype. The virus switches these functions off, and you start to see that the amount of ads in the browser is extremely increased. In addition, to that the amount of advertising has grown up observably, its quality has decreased. If adware lives on the laptop for a long time, man just can't surf the Net because of ads, redirections and banners in browser and sometimes even to turn on the PC. Wherefore is this done? The point of these actions is to force you to pass the links shown by the hijacker. These links may lead to the different sites. Some of them sell goods, some - offer unpaid programs or services. The important thing to understand about these web-sites is: they bring benefit only to their creators. Any try to download something from such web-site will cause serious problems. We believe, you realize that isn't the good program to store in your system, and it has to be uninstalled.

How to protect the computer?

To prevent such problems in the future, you need to know for sure in which way got into your machine. Hijackers use a lot of ways, but they all can be separated on three basic groups:

  • Download from a suspicious web-site. There are web-pages that distribute the dangerous software without any precautions. These tools have the limited list of functions: acting download of all drivers and updates for your gear, providing the information about best deals on the Internet, the enhancement of Web surfing, the fulfillment of certain tasks in the social networks, showing the newest unpaid media-content such as movies, music and games. If on some site you see a suggestion to install the tool with any of these functions - it is really dangerous, and the web-site itself is suspicious.
  • Adware can be attached to reliable programs. If you often use the unpaid software, you are familiar with this. You install the program, and during the installation there is a pop-up with the suggestion to install the anti-viral program, marvelous media player, browser, the additional add-on for it, and, maybe, a pair of another unknown, but highly "effective" tools. The checkboxes are already filled, and once you press "OK", the installation launches, and you’ll earn 4-5 tools that you do not need, instead of one that you wish to install.
  • The straight download by user. Smart composed specification of the tool and its wonderful (and nonexistent) features deludes the user, and he downloads the tool.

The e-mails are also often used, to spread unwanted programs but it is rarely used by hijackers. We hope that by the time you're reading these words, will be completely deleted from the computer. The well anti-viruses know how to locate a virus, but if you prefer the by-hand uninstall - you have to know all red flags of virus.

  • Slow launch of OS. The tools that launch at startup are, very often, the reason of tardy boot. Inspect the taskbar, and delete the unwanted programs from Control Panel.
  • Appearance of ads in the browser. If the amount of hype has grown up notably - that is, most likely, hijacker or adware.
  • Critical errors when using tools, reboot or shutdown of a PC without your permission.
  • The appearance of the unknown tools on the PC. If the tool appears on your computer without your resolution - it is, nothing else than the adware.

Each of these red flags indicates the malware threat, and if you react in time - you will prevent the damage. Be careful on the Web, follow the condition of your computer, and it will be ready for anything.
