The browser hijackers aren't made for fun, and each virus has exact tasks. However, if you think that the description of Mellowsurvey.com is true is really useful - you're wrong. Usually, the description of adware promises that it will be highly helpful. 99% of adware promise that they can assist you to search for anything on the Internet. Search for deals, sales and discounts in the Web, tracking the activity of friends in Twitter and assistance in the search for recent movies, games or music - these are the most common features of advertising programs. It might look really helpful, but if you think about it, you understand that all functions that are declared have long been implemented in the start feature set of any browser or social network. By the way, the aim of hackers is to convince the user that their adware performs something which is impossible to check. The "safer", "faster" or "better" web-browsing is a brilliant sample of suchlike feature, because these options are very vague and almost impossible to trace. Does this mean that advertising software does not do anything, and just take up space on your hard drive? Not at all! This software performs a very important task, - to allow Internet criminals to earn thousands of dollars a day on novice users.

 

There is a perception in the Web that the majority of viruses have no particular task.

It's a joke, of course. There are no useless malware. It is weird that adware generates so many pop-ups, but since you understand it, the scheme appears really plain. All this advertising is displayed to obtain money from referrals. Some people know that browser ads are paid on the special system, called pay per click. It means that the client pays for each transition from the ad to the web-site. All adware's actions are targeted at making you click on the ads. Even if you don't take interest in hacker's proposals - you can click on advertising, at least to close an inconvenient annoying ad. Every referral costs money and based on the nature of ads it can count from 0.1 to 5 cents and sometimes even more. However the price isn’t big, do not neglect the quantity of victims! Trusting operator can decide that these ads are good, and search for something worthwhile among these propositions, making dozens of clicks daily. Reputable AV-software developers and malware-fighting forums get tens of thousands of reports on Mellowsurvey.com, so scammers make really good profit on it.

Hackers use two principal ways of advertising tool distribution: the placement on the hacked web-pages and bundled installation with good programs. The first way might be simply neutralized: you should visit only those websites that are fully trustworthy, and are on the first positions in the search results. Besides that, the browser and anti-virus software will show the notification, if the web-site is unreliable. Second way is a little bit different: you must be aware of it only if you during the installation of programs. Installation in bundles is simple: advertisement software is added to installers of other programs. The installation helper is modified to suggest you to install extra tools instead of the needed one. All fields are pre-checked, and if user clicks "OK" he gets at 3-4 programs in addition to the needed one. You have to know that: if Mellowsurvey.com had infected your computer through installation in bundles, you, probably, have some more unwanted software or viruses. So, when you see the option among “safe install” and “install for experienced users” – pick the second variant. Remember about this every time you install some program - and your computer will be much cleaner.
