How to remove (uninstall) Kipuu.cn

The popularity of promotional programs as a means of income for online scams is growing fast. Hackers develop thousands of such programs every day, but only a few of them become really profitable. Today we talk about suchlike program: it is called Kipuu.cn.

What is Kipuu.cn

Kipuu.cn

The methods of Kipuu.cn work are pretty simple. It penetrates the system’s defense with help of e-mail spam, bundled installation or drive-by download. After the penetration and installation phase virus starts to change the browser settings, to make it easier to show ads and make redirections. Virus changes the default homepage and search engine to http://kipuu.cn/, and turns off few functions which are responsible for malware alerts and display of advertising. When these settings are made – the browser is ready to function for the benefit of web-scammers.

 

Kipuu.cn belongs to browser hijackers family that is known for its nuisances, the ability to constantly show ads in the browser and redirect the user to untrusted sites while surfing the Web. All efforts of Kipuu.cn are focused on one goal: to make the user open the main website of hijacker: http://kipuu.cn/. This website doesn’t even have a search box, and can only offer “hot sites”, “best games” and “shopping”. So, we can see the scheme: user accidentally installs Kipuu.cn on his PC, sees the website and believes that it is useful and reliable. All shortcuts on the hijacker’s page lead to the malicious websites that can be easily proven by trying to click on these shortcuts via clean, not infected browser. You will see big bloodred page, telling you that the visit of this website may cause serious damage to the system, or download of a virus. It doesn’t matter if you will click on “Google” or on “Facebook” shortcut – there will be the same result. We hope that this is enough to convince you that Kipuu.cn is the unwanted program, and it must be removed from your PC as soon as possible.

Methods to remove Kipuu.cn

Actually, there is another feature of Kipuu.cn which in the long term can initiate significant damage to your system. This effect is Kipuu.cn's ability to switch the controls of user's browser in order to advertise more efficiently which makes it extremely assailable against all threats. Advertisement programs want to change three items: start page, the filtering of intrusive advertising and default search engine. Thus, while Kipuu.cn is in the PC, the browser is very vulnerable, and many dangerous software may pass through it to the system, which exactly happens when man begins to randomly click on malicious links given by Kipuu.cn. The adware will overwhelm your computer, because each referral on the link, shown by adware invites one more virus onto the computer. You have only one technique to get rid of advertisement and shield your PC from viral hazard - to delete Kipuu.cn.

Method 1. Use special removal software

Method 2. Remove Kipuu.cn manually

Advertisement tools are being spread in different techniques: via infected web-sites where the viral download may begin at each click, and via installation in bundles. The "website" technique might be simply avoided: you must only visit web-pages which are fully secure, and are on the first positions in browser. Also, remember to pay attention to the notifications that your browser and AV-tool display. To guard your computer from the infection via the second method, you must carefully observe the installation of each program. Bundled installation technique is based on user's trustfulness and the harmful habit to press OK before you understand what is written above. The installation helper is set to suggest you to get more programs except the one that you need. In many variants you just can't cancel the installation, and in some - you don't even realize that you're installing something else. Naturally, all software except the needed one will be trashy or even hazardous. According to this, if you see the choice among “safe installation” and “partial installation” – pick the second variant. Then you will be able to pick which tool you wish to install and what you do not.
