How to remove (uninstall) Startimes.pw

The software that we're going to talk about is known as Startimes.pw. If your system is free of Startimes.pw – you have to shun of it, and if you’ve installed it somehow – you need to uninstall it as soon as possible. We are saying this since Startimes.pw not only brings inconveniences while you're looking for something on the web, but might summon a dangerous adware infection of your computer. Aren't you worried about the huge quantity of ads on all websites, or the shifted homepage? Have you suffered of the massive slowdown of computer’s and browsing speed, or irrelevant results of search and repeated redirections to the strange websites? These are the marks of advertising program's work in the system and if you've seen them – your system is in danger.

What is Startimes.pw

All tools have their aims, and this adware is no exception. However, the real aim of Startimes.pw does not coincide with the stated ones. Typically, the specification of adware states that it will be super helpful. 95% of adware declare that they can assist you to look for anything in the Internet. Search for discounts, sales and deals on the Internet, help in the download of latest music, games or movies and performing some functions in Twitter - that's the functions that 95% of advertising tools promise to carry out. At first glance it seems really good, but if you think about it, you realize that all options that are declared have long been implemented in the default feature set of any browser or social network. How do you think, why the advantages of adware are so vague? The "faster", "better" or "safer" web-surfing is a perfect example of suchlike features, because these options are really blurry and nearly impossible to observe. Does this mean that advertising software do not do anything, and just take up space on your hard drive? No, they got one main function and it is to fool the users and to obtain thousands of dollars from online advertising.

 

There is a perception on the Internet that the majority of hazardous programs are made just "for fun". Malicious programs slow down your system, prevent the work of reliable tools, and Internet-fraudsters like it so much that they are willing to spend their time and money to create stupid and irritating malware. In fact, all viruses perform their feature, and this feature helps swindlers to obtain money. For example, the incessant display of dozens of advertising on every website isn't an accident. All these ads are shown to earn money from referrals. Many users know that advertising in browsers is paid on the pay-per-click system. It means that the advertiser pays for every transition from the ad to the web-page. All advertising software's efforts are targeted at persuading you click on the ads. Actually if you don't take interest in hacker's proposals - you still click on the link, at least to hide an inconvenient irritating banner. Every click costs money and based on the sort of ads it can count up to 5 cents and for some sorts of ads even more. In this case we see that quantity overcomes quality, as swindlers create lots of substandard viruses that spam with hype. Trustful user can take the ads provided by virus in earnest, and search for something worthwhile among these propositions, doing dozens of referrals daily. Large AV-software creators and tech-support communities get thousands of complaints on Startimes.pw, so swindlers do really good profit on it.

Hackers use two primary methods of advertising tool distribution: the placement on the malicious websites and installation in bundles with free programs. Viral websites are really easy to recognize: they appear on the last positions of search, and they intrusively suggest to buy something. Besides that, the browser and antivirus program will show the notification, if the web-site is not trustworthy. The bundled installation method isn't related to websites: you have to be aware of it only when you during the installation of programs. Bundled installation technique works because of user's credulity and the harmful habit to press OK without reading. The installation helper is modified to offer you to install extra tools except the needed one. In some variations you just can't cancel the process, and in some - you don't even realize that you're installing something wrong. Naturally, all programs except the wanted one will be meaningless or even harmful. According to this, if you see the choice between “recommended install” and “install for experienced users” – pick the second variant. This will allow you to pick what program you wish to install and which you do not.
