If you suffer from constant ads in the browser, and the speed of the laptop has recently diminished - this page will help you find out what adware is, identify the fundamental issue and sweep the system of suspicious programs.

Adware includes a pretty long list of various types, but the most popular of them are adware, redirects and browser toolbars. These utilities are initially developed not to benefit people, so their purpose is to earn money by deceiving customers. Hackers are trying very hard to urge customers that these programs are worthy: they create extensive descriptions and promise incredible usability and benefit. So, what is the real purpose of adware?

  • Contamination with a hijacker brings another type of problem. Hijackers, from time to time open a scammer's website in the browser that redirects to one of the dangerous websites.
  • Toolbars are not so irritating as browser hijackers and adware, but ads are not their only purpose. They also collect the information about user's PC and about his activity on the Internet. This information can be used to trick its owner or sold to third parties for a decent price.
  • Adware's main attribute is that it inserts advertising information on all sites that the victim visits and in some cases, on the desktop. Fraudsters want adware to look profitable, so it can be disguised as one of hundreds of worthy programs for web-browsing, data archiving, text redacting, etc. Advertising emerges as separate blocks in the browser, links or pop-ups.

Every of mentioned types of adware uses separate ways to infect the computer and to work inside of it. In spite of the difference in manners, they have one thing in common: they were originally produced for deception and scam. In addition, since all advertising utilities are trying to convince the customer to view the untrusted and often perilous sites, they invite other viruses to enter the machine.

Sign #2 is the emersion of extraneous tools in the system that you haven’t installed. Such things may appear if the ad displayed by a virus doesn't lead to the site, but to download of the dangerous file. In this case, you may not even know how hazardous program gets into your laptop.

The attribute №2 is a significant retardation of the computer, and an increase in the boot time of the system. Degradation of PC performance is not always the effect of virus, but this appears very frequently. The system slows down because all advertising program is running in the background and never turns off. This means that adware is starting at system startup and shutting down only with the whole computer. When there are too much of them, their simultaneous functioning overburdens the system, and takes so much resources that good utilities just cannot work. When the system is in this state, it suffers from emergency turn-offs, critical errors of various programs and lags. If you notice any of these marks - you need to scan the computer with a good antivirus or delete all viruses manually.
