How to remove (uninstall) Search.hdirectionsandmap.com

This page is devoted to an undesired tool called Search.hdirectionsandmap.com and methods to eliminate it. If you suffer from constant advertising on each site, and the efficiency of your computer has abruptly diminished - this page will explain you what adware is, understand the basic issue and clean the laptop of suspicious programs.

There are three basic species of adware that spread through the Internet nowadays: browser hijackers, browser toolbars and adware. You have to understand that they aren't the useful programs that advertise other useful software - they were created to generate tons of ads. Internet-criminals are trying very hard to persuade people that these programs are useful: they describe them very well and promise incredible efficiency and advantage. To make it clear for you, we will explain the basic functions of each adware type.

  • Usual adware is famous for the countless spam with different ads, banners and pop-ups. Web-criminals want adware to look decent, so it might be disguised as one of dozens of reliable tools for text redacting, web-browsing, data archiving, etc. Offers which are shown by adware aren't dependable and we strongly recommend you not to click on them.
  • Contamination with a hijacker calls another sort of issue. Hijackers, from time to time open a scammer's page in the browser that passes to one of the sites with ads and suspicious links.
  • Browser toolbars show ads too, but less actively than other two species of adware. Their main function is to pick information about your search queries and viewed pages that are then transmitted on to fraudsters for further research. Such data may be used to trick its owner or passed to third parties for a decent price.

All these tools along and any of them might be used for different sorts of Internet-fraud. Despite the difference in manners, they are all united by the fact that they were originally produced for deception and scam. Except for evident nuisance, such as the growing number of irritating offers, Search.hdirectionsandmap.com has one more dangerous property and it is the abnormal decrease of computer's protection.

 

So, you know which aims are pursued by malware and, we will tell you how to find it. Now you know that the main red flag of advertising software is the growth in the quantity of banners. Attribute #2 is the emersion of weird programs in the system that you don't remember installing. This might appear if customer passes the link to direct loading of the installation file. In this case, you may not even know how virus gets into the system.

The sign №2 is a significant deceleration of the machine, and an enlargement in the boot time of the system. Degradation of PC speed isn't always the result of harmful tools, but this appears quite often. PC retards because each advertising tool is running in the background and never turns off. It means that adware is running at PC's startup and turning off only with the whole PC. When there are too many adware on the PC, their contemporaneous functioning overloads the system, and requires so much resources that useful utilities just cannot work. When the OS is in this state, it suffers from fatal errors of basic programs, emergency turn-offs and deceleration. If you see any of these symptoms - you should check the machine via high antiviral tool or clean it of perilous software by hand.
