How to remove (uninstall) Mellowsurvey.com

In this entry we'll explain you everything about an advertising software that is called Mellowsurvey.com. If your computer is free of Mellowsurvey.com – you need to shun of it, and if you’ve already installed it – you should uninstall it now. It has no good functions, since it was designed only to earn money to its creators, and to annoy the average users. Don't you worry about the enormous quantity of advertisement on the Internet, or the change of homepage? Have you suffered of the full retardation of system’s and browsing speed, or suspicious results of search and constant redirections to the untrusted web-sites? The red flags that are listed above are saying one thing: the machine is infected with some sort of adware, and this software has to be deleted.

What is Mellowsurvey.com

Hackers don't make dangerous programs just to annoy users, and each adware has straight tasks. But, the real task of Mellowsurvey.com is different from those stated. Usually, the description of adware states that it will be highly helpful. Most of suchlike programs state that they can assist you to search for anything in the Internet. Assistance in the download of new games, movies or music, observing the activity of friends in Facebook and search for discounts, deals and sales online - that's the most prevalent features of advertising tools. It might look really helpful, but when you start thinking about it, you realize that all features that are stated have long been implemented in the basic feature set of all browsers or social networks. How do you think, why are all adware descriptions so indistinct? The "faster", "safer" or "better" search on the Internet is a pure sample of suchlike functions, as these options are really indistinct and they're very to supervise. According to this, advertising software are completely useless, and is just consuming space in the PC's memory? No, they got one significant feature and it is to deceive the users and to earn thousands of dollars from online advertising.

 

We don't remember how it had begun but now there is an opinion that hackers develop the viruses without any particular reason. Dangerous programs slow down the computer, intervene with the functions of good tools, and hackers like it so much that they are willing to spend days, designing irritating viruses. It is a joke, of course. The adware can't be useless, and even if you don't know what it is for - you'll know when it will be achieved. For example, the incessant display of annoying ads on each website isn't accidental. All this advertising is shown to obtain money from clicks. Simply stated, advertising services are paid based on the amount of clicks made on the advertisement, or the amount of referrals from banner to the web-site. All advertising program's efforts are targeted at persuading you click on the link. Yet if user is not interested in adware's proposals - you may click on advertising, in order to close an uncomfortable annoying banner. Any click costs money and depending on the type of ads it can count from 0.1 to 5 cents and sometimes even more. Despite the payment isn’t large, do not forget about the amount of clicks! Confiding user can think that suchlike ads are good, and search for something entertaining among adware proposals, making dozens of referrals daily. Well-known AV-software creators and malware-fighting forums get tens of thousands of complaints on Mellowsurvey.com, so swindlers are doing pretty nice money on it.

And finally, Mellowsurvey.com has one more feature which in the long perspective might bring huge issues with your computer. We speak about that Mellowsurvey.com can shift the controls of user's browser on purpose to advertise more effective which makes it extremely vulnerable against all kinds of dangerous software. Adware switches the address of the starting page and the default search engine, and also blocks functions that are responsible for filtration of advertising and for prevention of unwanted downloads. Thus, when adware is inside the computer, the browser is very vulnerable, and all kinds of harmful programs can penetrate through it to the system, which exactly occurs if customer begins to randomly click on dangerous links shown by adware. Depending on man's practice on the Internet, the machine can be fully clogged in a few weeks or months, and eventually appear so retarded that it is almost impossible to work.

Hackers use two primary ways of advertising tool spread: the placement on the malicious web-sites and bundled installation with good software. Infected sites are very easy to identify: they are on the last positions of search, and they are overwhelmed with annoying advertisement and suspicious links. Besides that, your browser and antivirus software will show the warning, if the website is not trustworthy. To shield your machine from the infection through the bundled installation method, you should closely supervise the installation of all programs. This technique works because of user's trustfulness and the harmful habit to press OK without reading. You install some software and in one of the windows during installation emerges an offer to get some extra software. All boxes are pre-checked, and by clicking "OK" he gets at 3-4 tools in addition to the needed one. Most likely, all programs except the desired one will be pointless or even harmful. According to this, when you see the choice between “safe installation” and “partial installation” – choose the second variant. Doing this you will be able to pick what software you are going to install and what you don’t.
