Showing ads, advertising program generates a flow of people to certain sites and makes hundreds of dollars for web-criminals. The businessmen who own boosted websites pay to cyber fraudsters for advertisement and promotional services, which gives an impetus to make new species of adware.

Advertising shows up everywhere, beginning with the homepage in the browser, and ending with the total clogging of the system. Once you get used to the banners, hijacker starts to act even more irritating, hiding the whole web-sites. Any interaction with the banner can call the virus.
