Movix.eanswers.com

There are three main sorts of advertising programs which could be found on the Internet these days: browser toolbars, browser hijackers and adware. You must understand that advertising spam isn't an accident - they were developed to act this way from the beginning. Internet-criminals try very hard to convince you that these tools are useful: they describe them very well and promise incredible efficiency and benefit. To make it clear for you, we will explain the main features of each adware type.

  • Adware's basic property is that it inserts ad units on every website that the user views and sometimes, on the desktop. Scammers want adware to seem useful, so it can be masked as one of hundreds of useful tools for text redacting, data archiving, web-browsing, etc. Advertising appears as links, distinct units in search results or pop-ups.
  • Infection with a hijacker calls another sort of trouble. Hijackers periodically open a special webpage in user's browser that passes to one of the sites with advertising and untrusted links.
  • Browser toolbars also perform advertising functions, but not as active as the previous two species of advertising programs. Their main function is to gather information about victim's search queries and visited websites, which are then transmitted on to fraudsters for further usage. Such info may be used against its owner or passed to third parties for a solid price.

Adware is numerous and use special methods to penetrate the system and to work in it. These tools have one thing in common - they all cause problems for the victim and prevent him from surfing the Web. Except that, according to that all advertising utilities are trying to make you to click on links to useless and sometimes perilous web-pages, they let other malware to infect the PC.

 

Now, when we figured out for what purpose was this "virus" developed, it's time to understand how to detect adware and remove it. Now you know that the principal red flag of adware is an increase in the number of advertisements. Another sign is the emergence of strange tools in the system that you haven’t installed. Such things might happen if the ad shown by Movix.eanswers.com doesn't lead to the view of website, but to direct loading of the malicious file. In this case, you might not even know how perilous program enters the system.

The mark #2 is a noticeable deceleration of the machine, and an enlargement in its loading time. It should be noted that suchlike problems often arise for other causes, not related to adware. The root for such slowdown is that unlike regular programs, virus acts all the time, displaying advertising and redirecting user to malicious pages. It means that the program is starting at computer's boot and turning off only when the system stops working. When there are too much of them, their contemporaneous work starts to overburden the system, and requires so much resources that reliable programs simply can't operate. When the computer is in this state, it suffers from retardation, emergency shutdowns and fatal errors of basic services. If you see any of these marks - you have to scan the machine via quality anti-virus or clean it of adware by hand.
