If you already faced browser hijacker or adware - you might just proceed to the uninstalling instructions and delete this unwanted program. If you haven't faced with suchlike software earlier - believe, this adware really must not be kept on your machine. We are saying this since this undesired software not only brings inconveniences during web-surfing, but might initiate a serious adware infection of your computer. Have you noticed the high quantity of advertisement on all websites, or the shifted homepage? How do you think, is it normal that the basic search engine is switched to the suspicious website, and it appears every time when you start the browser? These are the attributes of adware’s work on your machine and if you've seen them – your computer is in jeopardy.

What is Startnewtab.info

Any tool has its own task, and this adware isn't an exception. Unfortunately, the true aim of this adware doesn't match with the declared ones. Typically, the description of every harmful software states that it will be super helpful. 95% of adware promise that they can support in the search for goods or information on the Internet. Search for deals, discounts and sales online, performing some functions in Twitter and assistance in the finding of latest movies, games or music - that's the features that 90% of adware state to accomplish. The most important thing you should do when you want to download some program - to take thought, is it really useful? Actually, the goal of adware developers is to declare that their adware performs something that is impossible to examine. The "faster", "better" or "safer" web-browsing is a excellent example of suchlike features, as these options are really indistinct and almost impossible to supervise. Does this mean that adware are completely useless, and is just consuming space on your hard drive? No, they got one important task and it is to trick the users and to make money on ads.

 

There is an opinion in the Web that the majority of harmful programs are made just "for fun". Perilous programs slow down the computer, prevent the work of good software, and hackers are so excited about it that they want to spend their money and time to design silly and irritating viruses. In fact, all undesired programs perform specific function, and this function helps criminals to earn money. For example, the indiscriminate display of annoying ads on every page is not accidental. All these ads are displayed to make money from referrals. Simply stated, advertising services are paid according to the amount of clicks done on the banner, or the number of referrals from ad to the web-page. All adware's actions are targeted at convincing you pass the link. Yet if you're not interested in hacker's ads - the click may still be performed, in order to hide an unwanted annoying ad. Every referral is worth the money, based on the type of advertisement it can be worth up to 5 cents and in some cases even more. Here we see that numbers defeat quality, as swindlers create hundreds of low quality advertising tools that flood us with annoying ads. Trustful user can take the ads provided by adware seriously, and try to find something entertaining among adware propositions, making dozens of referrals every day. Based on our information, the amount of victims of Startnewtab.info is counted on tens of thousands of users, and if each of them is making five to ten referrals daily, the fraudster's gain don't seem so insignificant.

Hackers use two main ways of advertising tool distribution: the placing on the infected web-sites and installation in bundles with free programs. Harmful web-pages are really easy to identify: they appear on the last positions in search, and they are overwhelmed with intrusive advertisement and strange links. In addition, listen to the notifications of your antivirus program and browser. The bundled installation technique is a little bit different: you must be aware of it only when you install some programs. Bundled installation means that adware is added to installers of other programs. The installation helper is changed to suggest you to install extra software except the needed one. In many variations you just can't uncheck the boxes, and in some - you don't even realize that you're installing something wrong. Of course, all programs except the desired one will be pointless or even dangerous. So, when you see the option between “recommended installation” and “installation for experienced users” – pick the second variant. Keep this in mind every time you install some software - and your machine will be much cleaner.
