How to remove (uninstall) Contentlikes1.com

This entry is devoted to an adware called Contentlikes1.com and manners to eliminate it. If you suffer from annoying ads in the browser, and the speed of the PC has greatly diminished - this page will help you find out what advertising utilities are, identify the current problem and clean the machine of undesired programs.

There are three main sorts of advertising tools that spread through the Web these days: browser hijackers, adware and browser toolbars. These tools are initially created not to benefit customers, so their features are targeted only at getting money by deceiving users. Internet-criminals try very hard to convince you that these tools are reliable: they create extensive descriptions and promise awesome efficiency and profit. To make it clear for you, we will describe the basic features of each type of advertising utilities.

  • Toolbars are not so annoying as adware and hijackers, but ads are not their single purpose. They also gather the data about victim's machine and about his doings on the Internet. Such data may be used against the user or sold to third parties for a solid price.
  • Contamination with a hijacker invites another type of problem. Instead of advertising they redirect the users to the malicious websites. These programs help the dishonest website owners to generate traffic and endangers the whole workstation.
  • Classic adware is famous for the countless spam with various ads, pop-ups and banners. Fraudsters want adware to seem profitable, so it might be masked as one of hundreds of useful tools for web-browsing, data archiving, text redacting, etc. Proposals that are displayed by adware are not reliable and you better not click on them.

Suchlike tools in conjunction and every one of them can be applied for different sorts of advertising scam. These advertising utilities have one common feature - they all provide inconvenience to the user and prevent him from surfing the Web. In addition, since all advertising utilities are trying to make the victim to click on links to weird and even malicious sites, they let other malicious tools to penetrate the PC.

 

Now you see what goals are targeted by adware and, it's time to learn how to detect adware and remove it. The first and the most annoying attribute of penetration is the quite high percentage of ads. Mark #2 is the appearance of weird software in the system that you don't remember installing. Such thing may appear when user clicks on all links that Contentlikes1.com displays, viewing the suspicious sites and downloading software from them. Harmful tools are acting stealthy so you can't see that you just downloaded them.

The mark number 2 is a hard retardation of the computer, and an growth in the boot time of the system. Slowdown of machine's performance isn't exclusively the result of virus, but this appears really often. PC slows down because all adware is working endlessly and never turns off. It means that virus is running at system boot and shutting down only with the whole PC. When the quantity of viruses comes to the critical point, their synchronous functioning overloads the system, and needs so many resources that good utilities simply cannot work. When the OS is in this state, it starts to suffer from trouble turn-offs, critical errors of different programs and deceleration. If you notice any of these signs - you have to scan the computer via high antivirus or eliminate all malicious programs manually.
