How to remove (uninstall)

This article will tell you the important things about an unwanted tool called and ways to uninstall it. If you see lots of pop-ups in the browser, and the efficiency of your PC has abruptly decreased - this entry will explain you what adware is, understand the fundamental problem and sweep the PC of unwanted programs.

There are three basic types of adware that spread through the Web nowadays: browser toolbars, adware and browser hijackers. You have to realize that they are noy the good tools that offer other reliable software - they were created to spam with pop-up windows and links. Scammers are trying really hard to convince customers that suchlike programs are useful: they describe them very well and promise great efficiency and benefit. To make it easier for you, we will describe the main functions of each type of advertising programs.

  • Browser hijackers do not place ads on the reliable web-pages. Hijackers, from time to time open a scammer's web-page in user's browser that redirects to one of the sites with ads and suspicious links.
  • Typical adware is known because of never-ending spam with all possible kinds of ads, pop-ups and banners. Fraudsters want adware to seem decent, so it may be disguised as one of many reliable tools for data archiving, web-browsing, text redacting, etc. Advertising emerges as links, separate blocks in the browser or pop-ups.
  • Browser toolbars also perform advertising functions, but less actively than the previous two types of advertising utilities. Except that they gather info about your search queries and viewed sites, which are then passed on to web-criminals for further usage. Suchlike information is of significant value for any advertising company.

Adware is numerous and use particular techniques to infect the machine and to work in it. They have one thing in common - they all call inconvenience to the user and prevent the user from using the browser. Except for apparent nuisance, such as abundance of banners and pop-ups, there is a perilous property of the abnormal decrease of computer's protection.


Now you know what purposes are targeted by malware and, it's time to learn how to find malware and eliminate it. The biggest and the most perilous attribute of penetration is the advertising overflow. Mark #2 is the emersion of suspicious tools in the system that you don't remember downloading. This happens when customer passes all links that adware provides, visiting the untrusted web-pages and installing viruses from there. Viral tools act stealthy so you might not understand that you actually installed them.

The symptom #2 is a hard lag of the PC, and an increase in the loading time of the system. It should be noted that these issues often arise for other roots, not related to unwanted software. PC slows down because each advertising program is running endlessly and never stops. This means that the program is starting at PC's startup and turning off only with the whole PC. When the number of these programs comes to the edge, their simultaneous functioning overloads the system, and requires so much resources that useful software just can't operate. This can call trouble shutdowns, critical errors of basic programs and retardation. If you witness any of these marks - you have to scan the system via decent antivirus or delete all adware by hand.
