There are few things which needs to commit before it can work. The extremely important thing is to create a task to restore in case of removal, and to gain updating from the scammer's website. Thereafter adware starts to change browser settings. When the home-page and default search engine are changed, user always sees the dangerous web-site in any browser and on each tab. Also, changes the browser options, responsible for ads. The browsers nowadays have a service that permits to hide the pop-ups, annoying ads, banners and other types of hype. Hijacker deactivates these services, and you understand that the amount of ads in all new tabs is dramatically increased. Moreover that you can see all the pop-ups of the Internet, doesn't matter are they good or not, it shows you markedly viral commercial content. In rare cases, users simply can’t surf the Internet, because when they try to view the specified website, adware redirects him to another one. So, what is the reason of this? The point of these actions is to force you to pass the links suggested by adware. These links often lead to third-class web-pages suggesting useless products, or services. Those sites are simply not visited by anyone aside from their developers, and the only chance for them is to bait people to the site with use of deception. Any effort to download something from suchlike website will call great problems. As you already realized, is harmless in itself, and it only gives the chance to do things that will bring damage.

How to protect the computer?

There is one important thing that you must understand about any adware: how not to let it sneak onto the system. This happens via three main methods:

  • Infection through a dangerous site. When you're on a web-page, you see a pop-up window with a suggestion to download few tools that can greatly help you in something. Suchlike tools have the bounded list of features: the improvement of Web surfing, the performance of some actions in Facebook, acting installation of all drivers and updates for your devices, showing the latest unpaid content such as music, games and movies, search for advantageous deals on the Net. All of these options are already built into the browsers, or present in the list of Windows services, so, it means that these software are absolutely worthless, and the web-site, which distributes them is, apparently, infected.
  • Adware can be attached to worthy software. Almost each unpaid software suggests you to get something aside from the needed tool. You install the program, and in one of the windows you see the proposal of the installation of the antivirus, browser, the new toolbar for it, miraculous media player, and, maybe, some another strange, but highly "efficient" tools. There's no need to decide anything because the all fields are already filled, and in some cases, it is very hard to decline the undesired installations.
  • The direct download by user. Smart composed specification of the software and its marvelous (and nonexistent) features misguides the user, and he installs adware.

The penetration via viral e-mail attachment is also highly efficient, but this way is used mostly by ransomware and viruses, and not by adware. If you see these words, we believe, that adware is already gone. If you choose the by-hand deletion, you should know how to realize that your computer has malware.

  • Windows boots extremely slowly. The programs that launch at startup are, most often, the reason of slow boot. At the taskbar you will see all currently launched programs, and decide the ones that are helpful and which aren't.
  • Appearance of ads in the browser. If the amount of advertising has grown up noticeably - that is, most likely, hijacker or adware.
  • Critical errors while using programs, shutdown or restart of a machine without your permission.
  • The appearance of the strange software on your PC. If the tool emerges in the system without your resolution - it is, most likely, undesired.

If you see one of these red flags in your system - you should make a full scan through anti-virus, or manually delete all the undesired and harmful programs from your machine. Be careful on the Internet, track the state of your PC, and it will anytime be fast and efficient.
