How to remove (uninstall) Elite Web Tool

The tool that we want to talk about is known as Elite Web Tool. If your system is free of Elite Web Tool – you should be aware of it, and if it already is in your system – you need to eliminate it immediately. We are saying so since Elite Web Tool not only calls inconveniences while you're looking for something on the Internet, but might initiate a serious malware infection of your computer. Do you mention the huge quantity of advertisement on the Internet, or the change of start page? Maybe you’ve experienced the full retardation of system’s and browser speed, or irrelevant search results and frequent redirections to the malicious websites? The signs which are described above tell us that the machine is infested with some sort of adware, and this tool must be uninstalled.

What is Elite Web Tool

The browser hijackers aren't made for fun, and each virus has strict goals. However, if you believe that the description of Elite Web Tool is really helpful - you're wrong. Commonly, the specification of each unwanted program promises that it is extremely useful. 90% of advertising tools state that they can assist in web-browsing. Search for sales, deals and discounts in the Web, performing some functions in Facebook and assistance in the download of recent music, games or movies - that's the most prevalent features of advertising tools. The primary thing you need to do if you want to install some software - to take thought, is it really useful? Haven't you thought about why the functions of advertising tools are so indistinct? The "safer", "better" or "faster" web-surfing is a perfect sample of suchlike features, since these options are very vague and almost impossible to trace. Does this mean that adware are completely useless, and is just consuming space in the computer's memory? Of course not!! They perform a highly significant task, - to help Internet fraudsters to obtain from $1000 to $5000 a day on gullible users.

 

Inexperienced PC operators believe that the majority of malicious programs are made just "for fun". It makes sense, right? Web-scammer thinks about a user which is endeavoring to delete his malware, and it feels really good! You should know that any hazardous software has their function, and it is often associated with earnings. It is difficult to guess why advertising program shows so many pop-ups, but since you realize it, the scheme looks really plain. All this advertisement is shown to make money on referrals. Simply stated, promotional services are paid according to the amount of clicks done on the pop-up, or the quantity of referrals from banner to the site. So, the more ads advertising program is showing you, the better is the chance that you will take an interest in it and click on the link. Yet if you are not interested in hacker's proposals - you will click on advertising, to close an undesirable annoying banner. Any click costs money and based on the nature of advertising it can count from 0.1 to 5 cents and sometimes even more. However this amount isn’t large, do not neglect the amount of clicks! Trusting customer can decide that suchlike ads are trustworthy, and try to find something worthwhile among adware proposals, making hundreds of clicks every day. Large AV-software developers and tech-support communities get thousands of complaints on Elite Web Tool, so scammers are doing really nice profit on it.

Advertisement tools are being distributed in many methods: through infected websites on which the malware download may start after any click, and using the bundled installation. The "website" method may be lightly avoided: you must only visit websites that are considered dependable, and appear on the first pages in the search results. Except that, the browser and antivirus program will display you notification, if the website is suspicious. To defend yourself from the penetration through the bundled installation method, you need to closely monitor the installation of all programs. Bundled installation is simple: adware is added to installers of other programs. The installation helper is changed to offer you to get more software in addition to the needed one. In many versions you just cannot uncheck the fields, and in some - there's no sign of extraneous software. Remember: if Elite Web Tool had penetrated your system with help of installation in bundles, there probably are some more unwanted programs or malware. According to this, when you see the option among “recommended install” and “partial installation” – choose the second option. Remember about this every time you install something - and your system will be noticeably cleaner.
