How to remove (uninstall) Alldownloads.hapc.gdn

This material will explain you everything about an undesired software called Alldownloads.hapc.gdn and ways to uninstall it. If you see too much pop-ups on every website, and the performance of the computer has abruptly diminished - this page will explain you what adware is, understand the fundamental issue and clean the system of undesired programs.

There are three basic kinds of advertising utilities that spread through the Web nowadays: browser toolbars, redirects and adware. You must understand that they are noy the fine programs that offer other useful software - they were created to generate tons of ads. The majority of customers mistakenly think that such programs are reliable, being tricked by large lists of their functions, but all these features either do not work, or just cannot exist. To make it clear for you, we will describe the basic features of each adware type.

  • Toolbars are not so irritating as browser hijackers and adware, but ads are not their single task. They can gather the info about victim's system and about his doings on the Internet. Such information might be used to trick its owner or passed to third parties for a decent price.
  • Browser hijackers do not show ads on the reliable web-pages. Instead of pop-ups they make the users to view the infected web-sites. This software helps the dishonest website owners to generate traffic and lowers the defense level of victim's computer.
  • Adware differs in that it exposes useless ads on each website that the user views and also, on the desktop. Fraudsters want adware to look decent, so it can be masked as one of many reliable tools for text redacting, web-browsing, data archiving, etc. Ads appear as pop-ups, separate blocks in search results or links.

Each of mentioned species of adware uses special techniques to infect the system and to act in it. These advertising utilities have one thing in common - they all provide problems for the customer and prevent him from Web-surfing. Besides the obvious inconvenience, such as abundance of irritating offers, Alldownloads.hapc.gdn has another dangerous feature: the abnormal lowering of system's protection.

 

Now, when we explained for what purpose was this "virus" created, it's time to understand how to reveal advertising program and eliminate it. The biggest and the most dangerous symptom of infection is the extremely high number of advertising banners. Sign #2 is the emersion of extraneous software in the system that you don't remember installing. Such thing might appear when victim passes each link that Alldownloads.hapc.gdn provides, visiting the strange websites and installing software from them. Suchlike programs are acting imperceptibly and you might not see that you actually downloaded them.

The third attribute is a hard slowdown of the machine, and an increase in the boot time of the system. Lag of PC performance isn't always the consequent of virus, but this happens quite frequently. The reason for such retardation is that unlike decent programs, virus works all the time, displaying banners and redirecting customer to dangerous sites. It means that adware is launching at system startup and shutting down only with the whole PC. If 3 or more such programs will sneak on your machine, their synchronous operation begins to overload the system, and takes so much resources that reliable software just can't run. This can cause fatal errors of various programs, lags and trouble turn-offs. If you witness any of these marks - you should check the system with a reputable anti-virus or delete all dangerous software in manual manner.
