How to remove (uninstall) Howtonews.ru

Howtonews.ru is the suspicious tool whose facilities are used by swindlers to promote their websites. The advertising-oriented tools are divided on two camps: adware and hijackers. They have just one significant difference: adware just puts ads on any web-site, and hijackers are trying to redirect you to the suspicious web-sites from the reputable ones. Programs of this sort often pretend to be good, to convince user download them. One of the significant problems for advertising program's creators is to describe all options the least clear, to deceive the user. Fast search, indication of the doings of your mates in Facebook, improved finding of deals and sells and other pointless features – this is what those utilities are proposing. Of course, they don't care about these things and simply generate the annoying ads.
