How to remove (uninstall) Startwebsearch.com

This entry will explain you the important things about an unwanted program called Startwebsearch.com and manners to eliminate it. If you see lots of advertising on the Internet, and the efficiency of the PC has recently diminished - this item will help you find out what adware is, identify the current issue and sweep the system of malicious programs.

Startwebsearch.com

Advertising utilities include a fairly long list of different species, but the very efficient of them are browser toolbars, browser hijackers and adware. You should understand that the abundance of banners isn't an accident - they were developed to act this way from the start. Internet-criminals are trying very hard to convince you that these tools are good: they describe them very well and promise incredible efficiency and profit. What do these tools really do?

  • Browser toolbars show ads too, but not as active as other two kinds of adware. Their main function is to collect information about victim's search queries and visited pages that are then passed on to fraudsters for further resale. Such data is of considerable value for each advertising organization.
  • Browser hijackers don't expose advertising on the reliable sites. Instead of ads they make their victims to visit the suspicious web-sites. These programs help the dishonest website owners to create traffic and endangers the whole laptop.
  • Adware's main property is that it inserts advertising information on each website that the victim visits and in some cases, on the desktop. Such programs can be disguised as anything: video and audio players, programs for finding movies and music, tools for downloading and updating drivers, system optimizers and much more. Offers which are displayed by advertising programs aren't reliable and you better not click on them.

The mentioned software in conjunction and any of them might be applied for different methods of advertising cheating. They have one common feature - they all cause inconvenience to the user and prevent the victim from browsing the Web. In addition, since all advertising tools are trying to force the victim to click on links to strange and even malicious web-pages, they invite other malware to infect the computer.

 

Now, when you know why was Startwebsearch.com, it's time to understand how to find malware and delete it. The largest and the most annoying symptom of adware is the very high amount of ads. The second symptom is the appearance of suspicious programs in the system that you haven’t downloaded. This happens when user clicks on each link that adware shows, visiting the infected sites and installing viruses from there. Viral tools act imperceptibly and you might not see that you just installed them.

The third attribute is a noticeable deceleration of the computer, and an enlargement in the loading time of the system. It should be noted that these problems often arise for other causes, not related to advertising tools. The ground for this deceleration is that unlike decent programs, adware must constantly act, displaying ads and redirecting user to unwanted web-pages. This means that the program is starting at computer's boot and shutting down only with the whole machine. When there are too many advertising programs on the computer, their synchronous work overburdens the system, and demands so much resources that reliable utilities just can't perform its functions. When the OS is in this state, it suffers from emergency shutdowns, critical errors of different programs and deceleration. If you notice any of these marks - you should scan the machine with a reputable antiviral tool or clean it of perilous software in manual manner.
