How to remove (uninstall) Archer.dll

Archer.dll is the advertising-oriented utility whose facilities are used by swindlers to obtain money from ads. The advertising-oriented tools are divided on two camps: browser hijackers and adware. They have only one significant difference: adware just displays ads everywhere, and hijackers will redirect you to the malicious websites from the trusted ones. The most widespread manner of penetration for those viruses is to play a worthy tool. All advantages of these tools are declared really unclear, so it is difficult to understand, does Archer.dll its job or not. Indication of the actions of your subscribers in social networks, improved finding of deals and discounts, fast search and other useless features – that’s what such programs are suggesting. Of course, they don't care about what they declared and just create the irritating advertisement.

Lots of the customers are wandering that Archer.dll isn't harmful independently. Archer.dll is not malicious, as it doesn't meddle with the work of good utilities, it does not erase folders and does not cause direct injury to the system. Promotional tools completely rely on the users, giving them the chance to spoil their machines. Showing ads, adware creates a flow of people to specific websites and gains hundreds of dollars for its developers. The owners of promoted web-sites pay to hackers for advertising and boosting services, which gives an impetus to develop new species of adware. This system is very difficult to break and promotional tools will do its work until all users will get a bad experience with adware and hijackers, and cease to install these sorts of tools.

If Archer.dll managed to break your system's defense, it will immediately begin to show advertising. Advertising shows up everywhere, including the desktop, browser new tabs and even homepage. Once you get used to the banners, hijacker starts to behave even more aggressive, covering the whole web-pages. The natural response on the emergence of large ad is to close it, but each click on it launches new browser window or initiates the download. Hijackers can show less spam than adware, but if hijacker is working in your system you may not even get to the needed website, because of redirections. The only decent method to heal the system and recover the browsers is the deletion of Archer.dll and complete scanning of hard drive.
