Each tool has its aim, and this adware is no exception. But, if you think that the description of this software is true is really helpful - you've made a mistake. Usually, the description of adware states that it will be very helpful. Most of these programs state to support in web-browsing.

Viruses slow down the machine, prevent the work of good tools, and Internet-scammers like it so much that they want to spend days, designing annoying malware. It is a joke, of course. There are no useless viruses. For instance, the indiscriminate showing of annoying advertising on every page isn't an accident. All this advertisement is generated to earn money from clicks. Many users know that advertisement in browsers is paid on the pay-per-click system, which means that the advertiser pays for every transition from the pop-up to the site. So, the more banners advertising program is showing you, the bigger is the chance that you will be interested and pass the link. Even if you don't take interest in adware's propositions - you will click on advertising, at least in order to close an undesirable annoying banner. The system doesn't care in which way the clicks were made, and online-criminals will receive their payment both for the true click and for the undesired one. Here we see how quantity defeats quality, as scammers create lots of low quality programs that spam with intrusive ads. Confiding man can take the ads given by Guruofsearch.com seriously, and search for something interesting among these propositions, doing dozens of clicks every day. According to our data, the amount of victims of Guruofsearch.com is counted on hundreds of thousands of users, and if each of them is doing 5-10 referrals daily, the hacker's gain no longer seems so low.

This consequence is Guruofsearch.com's power to switch the controls of user's browser on purpose to advertise more efficiently which makes it very defenseless to all kinds of malware.

There are two primary methods of adware distribution: the placement on the infected websites and installation in bundles with free software. The first method may be easily neutralized: you must only visit websites that are completely secure, and are on the first positions in browser. Besides that, your browser and antivirus program will display you warning, if the web-site is unreliable. Second technique isn't related to websites: you have to be aware of it only if you during the installation of programs. Bundled installation technique functions because of people's trustfulness and the harmful habit to press OK without reading. The installer is changed to suggest you to get extra tools in addition to the one that you wanted. In many variants you just can't decline the process, and in some - there's no sign of additional programs. Naturally, all software except the needed one will be meaningless or even harmful. According to this, when you see the choice among “recommended installation” and “installation for expert users” – choose the second option.
