How to remove (uninstall) WinArcher

WinArcher is the suspicious utility which resources are used by swindlers to promote their web-sites. The advertising-oriented software is separated on two groups: browser hijackers and adware. They have only one significant difference: adware just puts ads on all webpages, and hijackers will redirect you to the malicious web-sites from the trusted ones. The very common manner of penetration for suchlike viruses is to feign a useful program. One of the big parts of the job for advertising program's creators is to describe all functions in the most unclear manner, to deceive you. Indication of recent actions of your friends in Facebook, better finding of bargains and sells, quick search and other pointless features – that’s what such tools are suggesting. In fact, they don't care about these functions and just flood customer with advertisement.

Many users don't believe that WinArcher isn't harmful by itself. WinArcher is not dangerous, as it doesn't interfere with the work of programs, it doesn't destroy folders and doesn't deal direct harm to the PC. The functions of WinArcher are harmless, but it allows customer to damage his system as bad as he can. Through advertisement, promotional tool generates the massive income of people to certain web-sites and gets money for hackers. The owners of promoted websites pay to hackers for advertisement and promotional services, thereby giving a stimulus to develop new versions of adware. This system is impossible to break and WinArcher will operate until all users will get a bad experience with adware or hijackers, and stop installing these types of tools.

If WinArcher succeeded to break your PC's defense, it will, in short start to create advertising. The powerful stream of advertisement starts to invade browser and desktop, making web-browsing definitely impossible. The ordinary advertisement appears in especial places, but the advertisement of WinArcher may pop-up in the middle of the screen and interfere you to use the website, and it has no "hide" button. Any interaction with the ad unit can invite the unwanted program. If we're talking about browser hijacker infection user also suffers from permanent redirects to undesired websites. You can delete ads only by uninstalling WinArcher from your system as soon as possible.

Despite the fact that it is quite simple to remove WinArcher, nobody will like to perform that each day. The main problem isn't the quality of harmful programs but their quantity. So, each user must know not only how to delete unwanted programs, but firstly, how to avoid the infection. Here are some advices which might help you to make your system clean

  • E-mails are very frequently used to send perilous programs. If you do not recognize the sender of an e-mail - don't click on it. The e-mail attachments are better to open with help of "sandbox" software.
  • The installation of any software, and especially the pirated ones, must be closely revised. There will be plenty of significant information such as installation folder, the terms of agreement and more. Some these programs use a manner called "Partner installation" or "fast installation", when in addition to the one software you get 2-3 useless ones. You need to reject suchlike proposals, because harmful software use this method of spreading very frequently.
  • Be careful with the proposals to make money on the Internet, and the highly advantageous deals. 80% of these propositions are harmless, designed to boost the website of their developers, but some of them lead to real scam schemes that will cost you real money.

These advices are really easy, but each of them allows you to avoid the contamination by malware. Even if the use of the tips is making you feel uncomfortable - you should understand: they are necessary to abide. Let your PC be safe and fast, and if you face any problems - just let us know in the comments.
