Cloud Extender

There are three main sorts of advertising tools that may be found on the Internet these days: browser toolbars, adware and browser hijackers. These utilities are initially designed not to be helpful, so their functions are targeted only at getting money from advertising fraud. Many customers mistakenly think that such programs are worthy, being fooled by massive catalogues of their advantages, but all these functions either do not work, or just cannot exist. So, what's the real aim of advertising programs?

  • Common adware is known because of endless spam with different pop-ups, banners and ads. These programs could be masked almost to anything: tools for downloading and updating drivers, programs for finding movies and music, video and audio players, system optimizers and much more. Ads emerge as pop-ups, links or separate blocks in the browser.
  • Browser hijackers don't show ads on well-known web-sites. Hijackers, from time to time open a special website in your browser that passes to one of the infected websites.
  • Browser toolbars show ads too, but not as active as other two species of advertising programs. Also they pick info about victim's search queries and viewed pages that are then sent on to fraudsters for further research. Such information is of considerable value for any advertising company.

Adware is numerous and use special ways to infect the PC and to work in it. These advertising utilities have one thing in common - they all provide issues for the customer and prevent the user from using the Internet. Except that, since all suchlike utilities are trying to convince you to visit the untrusted and sometimes infected websites, they let other viruses to infect the system.

 

Now, when you know why was this adware developed, it's time to understand how to find Cloud Extender and eliminate it. The largest and the most important attribute of adware is the advertising overflow. Sign #2 is the emergence of additional programs in the system that you haven’t downloaded. Such things might happen if the pop-up shown by a virus doesn't lead to the site, but to direct loading of the malicious file. Harmful programs behave imperceptibly so you can't realize that you actually installed them.

The sign №2 is a noticeable retardation of the machine, and an increase in the loading time of the system. Retardation of PC speed is not only the result of virus, but this happens quite often. The reason for this deceleration is that unlike decent software, adware has to permanently work, displaying ads and redirecting user to undesired websites. This means that the program is launching at computer's startup and shutting down only when the PC stops working. If 4 or more such programs will sneak on your machine, their contemporaneous operation begins to overwhelm the system, and takes so many resources that reliable utilities just can't work. When the computer is in this state, it starts to suffer from trouble turn-offs, critical errors of basic programs and retardation. If you notice any of these symptoms - you should scan the system with a decent anti-virus or delete all dangerous software by hand.
