How to remove (uninstall) Launchpage.org

Launchpage.org is the annoying software and its resources can be used by cyber-criminals to earn money from advertising. The advertising-oriented tools can be divided on two groups: browser hijackers and adware. They have just one major difference: adware just puts ads on each website, and hijackers are trying to redirect you to the malicious web-sites from the good ones. Utilities of that kind are trying to look good, to convince user install them. One of the big parts of the job for advertising program's creators is to depict all functions in the most unclear manner, to delude you. Improved finding of bargains and discounts, reports about the actions of your friends in social networks, quick search and other useless features – this is what such utilities are offering. Actually, they don't care about what they declared and just flood user with advertising.

Some of the customers will be wandering that Launchpage.org isn't dangerous independently. Launchpage.org is not malicious, because it does not intervene with the functioning of programs, it doesn't destroy information and does not cause direct damage to the system. The things that Launchpage.org does are innocuous, but it allows customer to injure his workstation as bad as he can. Showing advertisement, promotional tool creates a flow of people to definite sites and gains thousands of dollars for web-criminals. The owners of promoted web-sites pay to hackers for ads and promotional services, which gives an impetus to make new versions of adware. This scheme is impossible to break and adware will operate until all customers will get a bad experience with adware and hijackers, and cease to install these kinds of programs.

If adware succeeded to penetrate your PC's protection, it will, in short start to show ads. Advertisement arises everywhere, including the desktop, homepage and even browser new tabs. The conventional ad units are placed in especial places, but the hype from Launchpage.org might pop-up anywhere and cover the info you need on the website, without having a "close" button. The natural response on the appearance of big banner is to hide it, but any click on it calls new tab or starts the download. In the case of the hijackers user also suffers from permanent redirections to harmful web-sites. The simplest method to return the OS and browsers to their original state is the removal of Launchpage.org and full scanning of hard drive.

All irritating functions of advertising programs are described in the windows which users got used to overlook. Some such programs use a technique called "Partner installation" or "quick installation", when in addition to the useful file you get a few others. Suchlike manner of installation is fully unwanted, because you can't be certain about the added programs.
  • Be cautious with the propositions to make money in the Internet, and the highly beneficial deals. Most of them are harmless, made to boost the web-site of their developers, but some of them lead to actual fraud schemes that could cost you real money.

These rules aren't difficult to follow, but every one of them allows you to prevent the infection by malware. Even if the use of the tips is making you feel uncomfortable - you should remember: they are necessary to abide. Let your system be fast and secure, and if you have any difficulties - please let us know in the comments.
