There are three main sorts of advertising software that could be found on the Web these days: browser hijackers, browser toolbars and adware. You have to understand that they aren't the fine programs that advertise other useful software - they were made to spam with ads and pop-ups. Many customers mistakenly think that these programs are worthy, being deceived by large lists of their functions, but all these advantages either do not work, or do not exist at all. What do these utilities actually do?

  • Browser hijackers don't show ads on well-known sites. Hijackers, from time to time open a special page in your browser that passes to one of the malicious websites.
  • Browser toolbars also perform advertising functions, but less actively than the previous two sorts of adware. Also they pick info about your search queries and visited web-pages, which are then passed on to web-criminals for further research. Such info may be used to trick its owner or sold to third parties for a decent price.
  • Typical adware is known because of endless spam with different pop-ups, ads and banners. These tools could be masked almost to anything: programs for finding movies and music, tools for downloading and updating drivers, video and audio players, system optimizers and much more. Ads come up as pop-ups, distinct units in search results or links.

Adware is numerous and use special ways to infect the workstation and to work inside of it. They have one thing in common - they all provide inconvenience to the victim and prevent him from Web-surfing. By the way, according to that all these programs try to convince the customer to visit the weird and even dangerous sites, they let other malware to penetrate the machine.

Micro_Foundation

Micro Foundation is an advertising program that penetrates users’ computers in bundle with other adware, such as Yeadesktop, OnlineApp and others. This program is absolutely useless and doesn’t have any functions to help you with anything. The name “Micro Foundation” doesn’t mean anything, just two words, barely connected with each other, and such name’s main purpose is to lull user’s attention and sneak onto the PC stealthy. After the penetration Micro Foundation acts like all other advertising tools: shows ads, slows the system down and exposes it to outer threats that could be much more dangerous than usual adware.

Now you see what purposes are targeted by adware and, we will tell you how to reveal it. It's evident that the main property of advertising software is an increase in the number of spam. Another sign is the emersion of suspicious programs on your computer that you haven’t downloaded. This happens when customer passes all links that Micro Foundation displays, viewing the infected pages and loading software from them. In this case, you may not even know how dangerous software enters your PC.

The attribute №2 is a significant retardation of the machine, and an increase in its loading time. Deceleration of PC performance isn't only the consequent of virus, but this happens really frequently. The ground for such lag is that in contradistinction to regular software, Micro Foundation works all the time, generating pop-ups and redirecting customer to unwanted websites. This means that adware is running at computer's boot and turning off only with the whole PC. When there are too much of them, their simultaneous running overloads the system, and requires so many resources that reliable tools simply can't operate. When the PC is in this state, it suffers from emergency shutdowns, fatal errors of important services and lags. If you notice any of these marks - you should check the hard drive via good anti-virus or eliminate all adware in manual manner.
