What is is a program that you’d never want to see on your computer again. It’s adware, e.g., a program, designed by Internet-scammers to take advantage of the pay-per-click payment system. We’ll return to it later. Scammers want you to click on ads that they show to you, and the only method to force you to do that is to show more ads. Sooner or later the annoying banners and pop-ups will cover the part of the screen where’s content located, and you will try to close or hide them. That’s how scammers get their clicks – victims do it accidentally. It still works though. But what do they get from the clicks?

It’s all about a system through which the ads are getting paid on the Internet. The system is called pay-per-click, so you might have guessed what its point is. The ad might be showed thousands of times, but the advertiser will only pay for the clicks made on it. That’s why scammers want you to click – it’s pure money for them. Not big money as they might get even a half-cent per one click. Don’t think that they’re losing money: you’re only one of the tens of thousands of victims, and even a cent from each one is a big sum in total.


What does in the system

They’re very important as when replaces the default pages by scammers website – the victim has no choice except using the infected page as a search engine. After that has to protect itself from deletion. It can’t do anything serious, but its measures are good enough to prevent novice users from deleting it. The measures are: adding the string to the registry and adding system tasks on reinstallation in case of removal. These two methods work in the same manner: they just check whether or not is present in its folder, and if it isn’t – the command is to download and install it again.

When all this is done, the activity of adware tends to zero, and it becomes very hard to trace. itself isn’t needed anymore, as the main function is performed by a scammers’ website. Except for its direct functions, is a cause of some other processes in the system, which result in major security decrease. It’s mostly about your browser, as it’s the main instrument for web-browsing. Scammers change the setting in a way that will allow them to show any ads and you – to open any link without additional dialogue windows or confirmations. This makes your browser super vulnerable, as it won’t be able to warn you about suspicious files and links. When does this, it takes about a week to totally clog a system with adware, malware, and Trojans.
