How to remove (uninstall) Myfast-search.com

In this article we'll explain you all needed facts about an advertising tool that is called Myfast-search.com. This program is very similar to another one, that we described lately: Kipuu.cn. You can remove both of these viruses using similar techniques. If your computer is free of Myfast-search.com – you should beware of it, and if you’ve already installed it – you must delete it immediately. Myfast-search.com has no useful functions, because it was developed only to earn money to its developers, and to irritate its victims. Don't you worry about the high amount of advertising in browser, or the shifted homepage? Maybe you’ve suffered of the overall slowdown of system’s and browsing speed, or strange search results and frequent redirections to the malicious websites? These are the tags of adware’s work on your PC and if you noticed few of them – your PC is in jeopardy.

What is Myfast-search.com

Myfast-search.com

The browser hijackers aren't made for fun, and every adware has exact goals. But, the real aim of Myfast-search.com differs from those declared. Usually, the description of adware promises that it is very useful. 99% of adware declare that they can support you to look for something in the Internet. Assistance in the search for recent games, music or movies, search for deals, discounts and sales in the Web and supervising the activity of friends in social networks - that's the functions that 90% of advertising programs state to carry out. It might seem very useful, but if you think about it, you realize that all options that are stated have long been implemented in the default functionality of any browser or social network. In fact, the aim of malware creators is to state that their software performs a function that is impossible to monitor. The "safer", "faster" or "better" search online is a perfect example of suchlike feature, as these options are really blurry and nearly impossible to supervise. So, advertising software are completely useless, and is just consuming space on your hard drive? No, it's not! Adware performs a very important function, - to allow online fraudsters to earn from $1000 to $5000 per day from unsuspecting users.

 

There is an opinion in the Web that the majority of viruses have no distinct aim. Harmful programs retard your computer, intervene with the work of good programs, and Internet-criminals are so excited about it that they are willing to spend their money and time to develop useless and annoying viruses. This was a joke, of course. The malware can't be useless, and even if the aim is unclear - you'll understand when it will be achieved. It is hard to guess why adware displays so many pop-ups, but when you get it, the scheme appears really plain. All this advertising is displayed to earn money on clicks. Simply said, advertising services are paid according to the amount of clicks done on the advertisement, or the amount of referrals from pop-up to the site. Thus, the more hype adware shows you, the higher is the chance that you will take an interest in it and click on the link. Even if you don't take interest in hacker's proposals - the click might still be made, at least to close an uncomfortable annoying banner. The system doesn't want to know in which way the clicks were made, and online-criminals will receive their money both for the normal referral and for the accidental one. In this case we see how quantity beats quality, as swindlers develop a lot of trashy viruses that flood us with hype. Trusting customer can decide that this advertisement is good, and try to find something worthwhile among these offers, doing dozens of clicks daily. Big AV-software developers and tech-support forums receive tens of thousands of complaints on Myfast-search.com, so hackers are doing pretty nice profit on it.

And finally, there is another feature of Myfast-search.com that in the long perspective might bring significant problems with your machine. The fact is that Myfast-search.com modifies browser controls in order to advertise more effective that makes it extremely assailable to all viruses. Advertising programs seek to shift three items: home page, default search engine and the filtering of annoying ads. Thus, when advertisement tool is inside the PC, the browser is very assailable, and many malicious programs can use it to enter the system, which is what occurs if user begins to randomly click on malicious links shown by Myfast-search.com.

Advertising software is being distributed in many ways: through viral web-pages on which the viral download may start at each click, and via installation in bundles. The first technique may be lightly avoided: you must only visit web-pages that are considered safe, and are on the first positions in browser. Also, remember to pay attention to the notifications of your antivirus software and browser. To protect your system from the penetration through the second method, you must attentively monitor the installation of any program. Installation in bundles is simple: advertising software is added to installers of free programs. You install some software and the pop-up window during installation appears a suggestion to download some additional tools.
