How to remove (uninstall) Clicksgear.com

Clicksgear.com is the advertising-oriented utility whose services can be used by swindlers to get money from ads. There are two main kinds of advertising programs: adware and hijackers, and manners of their action are really similar. They have just one significant difference: adware just shows ads everywhere, and hijackers will redirect you to the viral web-sites from the good ones. Utilities of that kind often pretend to be good, to make you download and install them. One of the big tasks for malware developers is to describe all options in the most unclear way, to confuse the user. Better detection of bargains and sells, fast search, reports about recent doings of your subscribers in Twitter and other useless features – that’s what such tools are suggesting. In fact, they don't care about these things and just flood customer with advertising.

Clicksgear.com

So, what exactly we will see when we will open the Clicksgear.com main page? It is the large GIFT that anyone can receive by simply clicking on it, isn’t it beautiful? Actually it isn’t. This is one of the oldest and the most efficient tricks of Internet scammers: they say that you can receive the gift, you click on it and get a virus. There were thousands of articles written about this method of infection, but users are still taking this bait again and again. If you’ll click on the “gift” the Clicksgear.com adware will penetrate your computer, get installed and start to show you ads everywhere, including your very favorite websites.

Many users don't believe that Clicksgear.com is not dangerous for the laptop. Clicksgear.com can't even be called dangerous, because it does not interfere with the work of programs, it doesn't destroy information and does not inflict direct harm to the system. The functions of adware are innocuous, but it lets customer to damage his workstation as bad as he can. Showing advertisement, Clicksgear.com generates a flow of users to specific websites and gains thousands of dollars for web-criminals. The people that own these web-sites pay to cyber swindlers for advertisement and promotional services, which gives an inducement to create new versions of adware. This vicious circle is impossible to break and adware will operate until each and every customer will experience some issues with hijackers and adware, and stop installing such programs.

After penetrating the system and installation Clicksgear.com, the only thing that bothers Clicksgear.com is the promotional activity. The powerful flood of advertisement starts to take over browser and desktop, making web-surfing completely impossible. The regular ads are placed in especial areas, but the banners of Clicksgear.com could arise in the middle of the screen and cover the information you want to read on the web-site, and it has no "close" button. The first response on the appearance of huge ad is to hide it, but any click on it opens new tab or begins the download. Hijackers can generate less ads than other promotional tools, but if hijacker is working in your system you can't even get to the needed website, because of redirections. You can delete ads only by uninstalling hijacker from your system ASAP.
