How to remove (uninstall) 4luckyf.com

This item will explain you everything about an advertising program called 4luckyf.com and methods to remove it. If you suffer from annoying pop-ups on each website, and the productivity of the PC has recently diminished - this item will explain you what adware is, identify the current issue and sweep the system of undesired programs.

4luckyf.com

There are three main types of adware which could be found on the Internet these days: browser hijackers, browser toolbars and adware. These utilities are initially created not to be helpful, so their functions are targeted only at getting money by deceiving customers. Scammers are trying really hard to persuade people that suchlike programs are useful: they create nice descriptions and promise incredible usability and advantage. What do these utilities actually do?

  • Browser toolbars show ads too, but less actively than other two sorts of adware. Their main function is to collect information about your search queries and visited web-pages that are then passed on to web-criminals for further resale. This information is of substantial value for any advertising organization.
  • Infection with a hijacker invites another kind of issue. Hijackers, from time to time open a special site in your browser that redirects to one of the sites with advertising and suspicious links.
  • Typical adware is famous for the never-ending spam with various banners, pop-ups and ads. These tools might be masked almost to anything: video and audio players, system optimizers, programs for finding movies and music, tools for downloading and updating drivers and much more. Offers that are shown by adware are not reliable and you better not click on them.

Advertising tools are different and use separate methods to infect the PC and to act in it. They have one common feature - they all provide issues for the victim and prevent the victim from using the Internet. Aside from evident nuisance, such as the flood of banners and links, 4luckyf.com has one more malicious property and it is the critical lowering of PC's protection.

 

Now, when you know for what purpose was 4luckyf.com, you should know how to detect it. It's apparent that the basic property of adware is the growth in the number of spam. Mark #2 is the emergence of strange programs in the system that you haven’t downloaded. This can appear if victim passes the link to direct loading of the viral file. Unwanted programs are acting stealthy so you might not realize that you just installed them.

The symptom number 2 is a strong deceleration of the machine, and an enlargement in the boot time of the system. Slowdown of PC performance is not exclusively the consequent of virus, but this happens really frequently. The ground for such deceleration is that in contradistinction to good software, adware acts 24/7, generating ads and redirecting customer to undesired pages. It means that the program is running at computer's startup and shutting down only with the whole computer. When the number of these utilities reaches the critical point, their simultaneous operation overloads the system, and needs so many resources that good programs simply can't run. When the system is in this condition, it suffers from critical errors of basic services, retardation and emergency shutdowns. If you notice any of these symptoms - you need to scan the hard drive with a good anti-virus or remove all dangerous programs manually.
