How to remove (uninstall) Good-journal.net

Good-journal.net is the advertising-oriented program and its resources are used by cyber-criminals to promote their web-sites. There are two most popular types of advertising software: hijackers and adware, and they are really similar in their purposes. They have just one big difference: adware prefers to display ads on all webpages, and hijackers will redirect you to the viral websites from the trusted ones. The very widespread technique of penetration for those tools is to pretend a good tool. One of the big problems for advertising program's creators is to describe all functions in the most unclear way, to delude you. Indication of recent doings of your mates on Twitter, fast search, better finding of bargains and discounts and other useless features – this is what such utilities propose. Actually, they don't care about these functions and just flood user with advertising.

Good-journal.net

Many users are surprised by the fact that Good-journal.net isn't harmful by itself. Good-journal.net isn't a virus, because it does not meddle with the work of good software, it does not delete folders and doesn't inflict direct harm to the PC. Promotional programs absolutely rely on their victims, giving them the opportunity to harm their computers. With help of advertisement, adware initiates the massive income of users to determined websites and gets thousands of dollars for web-criminals. The people who own these web-sites pay to hackers for ads and promotional services, thereby giving an inducement to create new versions of adware. This system is really difficult to break and promotional utilities will do its work until each and every user will receive a negative experience with hijackers and adware, and cease to install these kinds of tools.

If adware succeeded to break your system's protection, it will instantly begin to create advertising. The massive stream of ads begins to take over browser and desktop, leaving you no chance to browse the Internet. Once you get used to the ads, adware begins to behave even more aggressive, covering the whole web-sites. The obvious response on the emergence of big ad is to close it, but any click on it launches new browser window or starts the download. In the case of the hijackers user also suffers from permanent redirects to malicious sites. You can delete this only by uninstalling adware from your machine as soon as possible.

How to protect the computer?

Despite the fact that it's quite simple to get rid of Good-journal.net, nobody will like to do this each day. The main complexity isn't the quality of viruses but their amount. This means that you must understand not only how to uninstall viruses, but in the first place, how to prevent the contamination. Here are few tips which may help you to keep your machine clean

  • Each time you install something, you should attentively read the EULA. In these windows there is lots of significant information such as installation folder, the user agreement and more. Some hijackers use a technique called "Partner installation" or "recommended installation", when in addition to the desired tool you get a few others. Suchlike way of installation is absolutely undesired, because you cannot be sure about the added software.
  • E-mail is very simple to use for scammer's purposes. If you don't know who's the sender of the message - don't open it. The e-mail attachments are better to open with help of "sandbox" tools.
  • All offers in the Web that promise you great benefit must be taken skeptically. Most of them are harmless, designed to increase the rating of the web-page, where they are placed, but some of them lead to real scam schemes which could cost you real money.

These advices are really easy, but they all are allowing you to prevent the infection by harmful software. Even if the use of the tips is making you feel uncomfortable - you should remember: it is much easier to avoid infection than to deal with its consequences. Let your system be secure and clean, and remember: we'll easily solve any issues with undesired programs.
