Many users don't believe that Gotowebs.com isn't dangerous independently. The harmful can spoil your files, lock the system or erase some software and folders, but Gotowebs.com isn't capable of doing this. Advertising tools absolutely rely on the customers, giving them the chance to harm their PCs. Through ads, adware initiates the massive income of people to specific web-sites and makes money for web-criminals. Ads and promotional services, provided by adware, are cheap, and draw thousands of rustlers. This system is really difficult to break and adware will do its job until each and every user will experience some troubles with adware and hijackers, and cease to install such tools.

After crawling into the PC and installation promotional software, the only thing that troubles Gotowebs.com is advertisement. Ads emerge everywhere, beginning with the new tabs of your browser, and ending with the total clogging of the system. The normal advertisement appears in especial places, but the advertisement by Gotowebs.com could arise anywhere and interfere to use the web-site, without having a "hide" button. The first reaction on the appearance of big ad is to hide it, but each click on it opens new tab or begins the download. Hijackers might generate less spam than adware, but with hijacker you could not even get to the needed website, being redirected further and further again.
