The program that we're going to talk about is called Hitnews1.net. If you have some experience with browser hijacker or adware - you might skip this part and proceed to the removal tips and delete this undesired tool. If you haven't experienced suchlike software earlier - trust us, this adware really must not be kept on your machine. We say this because Hitnews1.net not only brings inconveniences during web-surfing, but can bring a dangerous adware infection of your machine. Have you mentioned the enormous amount of ads on all websites, or the change of start page? Have you faced the massive retardation of PC’s and browsing speed, or suspicious search results and continuous redirections to the untrusted web-sites? The signs that are described above tell us one thing: the PC is infected with some sort of advertising program, and this software should be removed.

What is Hitnews1.net

Hitnews1.net

All tools have their purposes, and this adware is no exception. However, if you think that the description of Hitnews1.net is really useful - you're wrong. Usually, the description of each undesired tool declares that it will be highly useful. Most of these software state that they will help you to search for goods or information in the Internet. Search for deals, sales and discounts in the Web, assistance in the finding of latest games, music or movies and performing some functions in Facebook - that's the most common features of adware. At first look it seems very nice, but if you think about it, you realize that all functions that are declared have long been present in the default functionality of any browser or social network. By the way, the goal of hackers is to convince you that their product performs a function which can't be checked. The "better", "faster" or "safer" web-surfing is a brilliant example of suchlike features, since these options are very indistinct and almost impossible to observe. Does this mean that adware do not do anything, and just take up space in the PC's memory? Not at all! These programs perform a highly significant task, - to help online fraudsters to receive from $1000 to $5000 per day from unsuspecting users.

 

Inexperienced PC operators say that the majority of viruses are created without any particular reason. Hazardous programs spoil your PC, intervene with the functions of reliable tools, and hackers like it so much that they want to spend their time and money to design silly and irritating malware. Alright, it was a joke. There are no useless malware. For example, the indiscriminate showing of suspicious ads on every website is not an accident. All these ads are displayed to obtain money on clicks. Simply said, promotional services are paid based on the quantity of clicks made on the banner, or the quantity of referrals from link to the web-page. All adware's actions are aimed at convincing you pass the link. Actually if you don't take interest in adware's offers - you might click on the link, to hide an uncomfortable irritating banner. Every click is worth the money, depending on the nature of advertisement it can be worth from 0.1 to 5 cents and for some types of ads even more. Here we see how quantity beats quality, as scammers create lots of substandard advertising tools that spam with hype. Trusting user can take the advertising provided by adware seriously, and search for something interesting among adware proposals, doing dozens of clicks daily. Based on our information, the amount of PC's, infected by Hitnews1.net is counted on hundreds of thousands of people, and if all of them are making one to five referrals daily, the fraudster's profit no longer seems so low.

Methods to remove Hitnews1.net

Actually, Hitnews1.net has one more feature that in the long perspective can bring significant problems with your PC. This feature is Hitnews1.net's ability to shift the controls of user's browser on purpose to distribute advertisement more effective that makes it highly defenseless to all threats. Adware changes the default search engine and the address of the starting page, and also blocks options that are responsible for filtration of advertising and for denying of suspicious downloads. Suchlike changes conflict with the primary rules of Internet security, and make your browser extremely assailable to all types of threats. The hazardous programs will overwhelm your PC, because each referral on the link, provided by adware calls one more virus on the PC. If you don't want your Computer to be in such state you have to uninstall Hitnews1.net from your PC as soon as possible.

Advertising software is being spread in different ways: with help of infected web-pages where the malware download may start at any click, and via installation in bundles. Infected web-sites are very easy to know: they appear on the last positions of search, and they intrusively suggest to purchase something. In addition, pay attention to the warnings that your browser and AV-tool display. To shield yourself from the infection via the bundled installation method, you should attentively observe the installation of all programs. This method functions because of user's trustfulness and the harmful habit to press OK before you know what is written above. User installs some program and in one of the windows during installation appears an offer to get some more software. In many versions you just can't cancel the process, and in some - you don't even realize that you're installing something else. Most likely, all tools except the needed one will be useless or even hazardous. So, if you see the choice among “safe install” and “install for expert users” – choose the second variant. Keep this in mind each time you install new program - and your computer will be much cleaner.
