Scangoogle.ru

There are three basic forms of adware that spread through the Internet these days: browser toolbars, adware and browser hijackers. These tools weren't helpful from the first days, so their functions are targeted only at getting money by tricking people. Internet-criminals try really hard to persuade customers that these programs are useful: they describe them very well and promise awesome efficiency and profit. So, what is the real purpose of adware?

  • Browser hijackers don't generate advertising on the reliable web-pages. Hijackers periodically open a special web-page in victim's browser that redirects to one of the infected websites.
  • Toolbars are less irritating than browser hijackers and adware, but except showing ads they can collect the information about user's computer and about his doings on the Internet. Suchlike data is of significant value for each advertising company.
  • Adware's basic attribute is that it places annoying ads on every website that the victim views and in some cases, on the desktop. These programs could be disguised as anything: system cleaners, tools for finding news and funny stories, media players, driver updaters and even more. Offers which are generated by adware aren't reliable and you better not click on them.

Every of above written sorts of adware uses especial methods to infect the computer and to act in it. They have one thing in common - they all cause problems for the user and prevent the victim from using the browser. Aside from obvious nuisance, such as abundance of irritating offers, there is a dangerous property of Scangoogle.ru: the critical decrease of system's security.

 

Now, when we see why was Scangoogle.ru, it's time to learn how to find adware and eliminate it. It's evident that the principal property of infection is an increase in the quantity of spam. The second sign is the emergence of suspicious tools in the system that you don't remember installing. Such thing might appear when victim clicks on all links that adware displays, visiting the infected sites and loading software from them. In this case, you might not even know how virus penetrates the system.

The sign №2 is a heavy slowdown of the PC, and an growth in the loading time of the system. Retardation of computer's speed is not only the effect of adware, but this appears very often. PC is slowing down because any adware is running in the background and never turns off. It means that the program is starting at computer's boot and shutting down only with the whole machine. When there are too many adware on the computer, their contemporaneous work overburdens the system, and takes so many resources that good tools just cannot run. This can induce deceleration, trouble shutdowns and critical errors of various programs. If you witness any of these signs - you should check the machine via quality antivirus or clean it of malicious software in manual manner.
