This article will tell you everything about an advertising software called Combotab.com and methods to eliminate it. If you see too much advertising in the browser, and the speed of the PC has suddenly decreased - this article will help you find out what advertising tools are, identify the basic issue and clean the laptop of malicious programs.

Combotab.com

There are three main forms of adware that spread through the Internet nowadays: redirects, adware and browser toolbars. These programs are originally developed not to be useful, so their target is to receive money by tricking customers. Many customers mistakenly think that suchlike tools are good, being deceived by massive catalogues of their features, but all these functions either aren't working, or do not exist at all. To make it easier for you, we will describe the main features of each type of advertising utilities.

  • Classic adware is known because of never-ending spam with all possible kinds of pop-ups, ads and banners. Fraudsters are trying to make adware look profitable, so it may be disguised as one of many reliable programs for data archiving, text redacting, web-browsing, etc. Offers that are shown by adware aren't secure and we strongly advise you not to click on them.
  • Browser hijackers don't show advertising on well-known sites. Hijackers, from time to time open a scammer's site in your browser that redirects to one of the suspicious websites.
  • Browser toolbars show ads too, but less actively than other two kinds of adware. In addition they collect info about your search queries and viewed sites that are then passed on to scammers for further resale. This information might be used to trick the user or sold to third parties for a decent price.

Every of mentioned types of adware uses particular techniques to penetrate the workstation and to work inside of it. In spite of the difference in methods, they have one fact in common: they were from the very beginning developed for scam and deception. In addition, since all adware tries to force the user to visit the useless and even infected web-pages, they allow other viruses to enter the PC.

 

Now you see which goals are pursued by Combotab.com and, you should understand how to reveal it. It's evident that the basic sign of infection is an increase in the quantity of banners. The second sign is the emergence of weird tools in the system that you don't remember installing. Such thing may appear when user passes all links that Combotab.com provides, visiting the dangerous websites and installing programs from there. Undesired tools act imperceptibly so you can't realize that you just installed them.

The sign number 2 is a noticeable deceleration of the PC, and an growth in the loading time of the system. Slowdown of computer's speed is not exclusively the consequent of adware, but this happens really often. The computer slows down because any adware is working in the background and never turns off. This means that the program is launching at system startup and shutting down only when the system stops working. When the number of adware reaches the edge, their contemporaneous work begins to overload the system, and takes so much resources that good programs just cannot run. This can induce deceleration, trouble turn-offs and fatal errors of important programs. If you see any of these marks - you need to scan the system via quality antivirus or clean it of viruses in manual manner.
