This material is devoted to an unwanted program called Seeks.ru and ways to uninstall it. If you suffer from constant ads on the Internet, and the speed of the laptop has abruptly decreased - this material will explain you what advertising programs are, understand the current issue and clean the laptop of strange software.

Seeks.ru

Adware includes a pretty long list of different kinds, but the most popular of them are browser toolbars, adware and browser hijackers. You have to understand that the abundance of links isn't an accident - they were created to act this way from the start. Most of users mistakenly think that these programs are worthy, being deceived by huge catalogues of their features, but all these functions either aren't working, or just cannot exist. To make it clear for you, we will explain the basic features of each adware type.

  • Common adware is known because of countless spam with various banners, pop-ups and ads. Such utilities can be disguised as anything: media players, system cleaners, tools for finding news and funny stories, driver updaters and much more. Advertising appears as separate blocks in the browser, pop-ups or links.
  • Toolbars are less annoying than browser hijackers and adware, but except showing ads they also gather the data about user's machine and about his actions on the Internet. This information is of significant value for each advertising company.
  • Browser hijackers call another kind of trouble. Hijackers periodically open a scammer's webpage in victim's browser that redirects to one of the malicious websites.

Each of above written kinds of adware uses especial techniques to penetrate the PC and to act inside of it. They have one thing in common - they all provide inconvenience to the victim and prevent him from using the browser. By the way, since all adware is trying to convince the victim to click on links to untrusted and even malicious web-pages, they allow other viruses to infect the system.

 

Now, when we explained for what purpose was this "virus" designed, it's time to understand how to reveal Seeks.ru and remove it. Now you know that the principal property of advertising utilities is the growth in the quantity of ads. The second sign is the emergence of extraneous programs on your PC that you don't remember installing. This might happen if the link provided by adware does not lead to the site, but to download of the installation file. In this case, you may not even understand how virus enters the system.

The mark №2 is a strong lag of the machine, and an increase in its boot time. You should know that suchlike problems frequently arise for other causes, not related to suspicious software. The root for this lag is that unlike ordinary software, adware acts all the time, showing ads and redirecting victim to harmful pages. This means that adware is running at PC's boot and shutting down only with the whole PC. When there are too many advertising utilities on the PC, their simultaneous work overloads the system, and needs so much resources that reliable programs just cannot operate. This can summon fatal errors of basic services, lags and trouble turn-offs. If you notice any of these marks - you should check the PC via good anti-virus or clean it of viruses manually.
