If your system is free of Topsnote.ru – you should be aware of it, and if it already is in your system – you must get rid of it as soon as possible. This malicious program has no useful functions, since it was created only to bring profit to online-criminals, and to irritate its victims. Have you mentioned the huge quantity of advertising on each website, or the shifted homepage? Maybe you’ve faced the total slowdown of system’s and browser speed, or strange search results and common redirections to the suspicious webpages? These are the signs of adware working on your computer and if you've seen some of these – your computer is in jeopardy.

All programs have their purposes, and Topsnote.ru is no exception. However, if you believe that the description of Topsnote.ru is really useful - you've made a mistake. Commonly, the specification of adware declares that it will be super useful. 95% of advertising software declare that they can assist in web-browsing. Performing some functions in Facebook, help in the search for new music, games or movies and search for discounts, sales and deals on the Internet - these are the functions that 95% of advertising tools declare to perform. At first glance it is very helpful, but when you start thinking about it, you understand that all options that are stated have long been imbued in the default functionality of any browser or social network. By the way, the goal of virus creators is to convince the user that their adware performs a function which is impossible to examine. The "safer", "faster" or "better" web-surfing is a brilliant example of suchlike features, because these parameters are very indistinct and they're very to trace. According to this, advertising software are completely useless, and is just consuming space in the machine's memory? No, they have one significant feature and it is to cheat the users and to make money on ads.

 

Novice PC operators think that the majority of undesired programs are created without any distinct reason. It's really reasonable, yes? Malware developer thinks about you, endeavoring to uninstall his virus right now, and it feels very good! Alright, I'm joking. The adware can't be useless, and even if the aim is obscure - you'll understand when it will be achieved. For instance, the indiscriminate showing of dozens of advertising on every website is not accidental. All this advertisement is displayed to make money from referrals. Simply stated, defrayment of advertising services is made according to the number of clicks made on the banner, or the amount of referrals from ad to the site. All advertising software's efforts are aimed at convincing you click on the link. Even if you don't take interest in any of the propositions - you can click on advertising, at least to hide an undesirable intrusive banner. Advertisers don't want to know how the click was done, and scammers will obtain their payment both for the decent referral and for the unwanted one. Although the reward isn’t big, do not forget about the quantity of infected machines! Trusting user can take the advertising shown by virus seriously, and search for something interesting among these propositions, doing hundreds of referrals daily. Based on our data, the quantity of victims of Topsnote.ru is at least 50 000, and if each of them is making 5-10 clicks daily, the hacker's earnings no longer seems so insignificant.

Viral sites are very easy to know: they are on the last positions in search, and they are overwhelmed with intrusive advertisement and suspicious links. In addition, listen to the notifications that your browser and AV-tool show. Second method isn't related to websites: you should be aware of it only when you during the installation of software. Bundled installation method functions because of user's credulity and the bad habit to press OK before you know what you are agreeing with. The installation program is changed to offer you to get extra tools instead of the needed one. All boxes are pre-checked, and if you click “OK” – you will install at least three tools instead of one. Naturally, all software except the needed one will be useless or even harmful. So, if you see the option between “recommended install” and “installation for practiced users” – pick the second option.
