How to remove (uninstall)

This guide will explain you everything about an advertising tool called and ways to uninstall it. If you see too much advertising on each website, and the speed of your PC has greatly decreased - this material will explain you what advertising utilities are, spot the main problem and sweep the laptop of dangerous programs.

Advertising tools include a very long list of various species, but the very famous of them are adware, browser hijackers and browser toolbars. These programs weren't helpful from the first days, and their target is to earn money from advertising fraud. Most of customers mistakenly think that such utilities are helpful, being deluded by massive lists of their features, but all these functions either do not work, or just cannot exist. What do these utilities actually do?

  • Contamination with a hijacker calls another type of problem. Hijackers, from time to time open a scammer's page in the browser that passes to one of the sites with advertising and untrusted links.
  • Browser toolbars show ads too, but less actively than other two species of adware. Their main function is to pick information about user's search queries and viewed web-pages, which are then sent on to web-criminals for further research. This information is of substantial value for any advertising organization.
  • Adware's basic feature is that it shows ad units on all sites that the user views and also, on the desktop. Scammers want adware to seem good, so it might be disguised as one of hundreds of useful tools for data archiving, text redacting, web-browsing, etc. Ads which are generated by adware aren't secure and you better not click on them.

Adware is numerous and use distinct methods to penetrate the PC and to act inside of it. They have one thing in common - they all provide inconvenience to the user and prevent the customer from using the browser. In addition, since all adware tries to make the customer to click on links to useless and sometimes perilous web-pages, they allow other malware to penetrate the PC.


Now, when you know for what purpose was this utility developed, you should know how to reveal it. It's apparent that the principal property of advertising tools is the growth in the quantity of spam. The second symptom is the emersion of useless software on your computer that you don't remember installing. Such things can happen if customer passes the link to download of the viral file. Suchlike tools behave stealthy so you might not realize that you just downloaded them.

The third sign is a noticeable deceleration of the machine, and an increase in its boot time. Slowdown of computer's performance isn't always the result of adware, but this happens very frequently. The reason for this slowdown is that unlike decent programs, virus has to constantly act, showing banners and redirecting victim to suspicious sites. It means that adware is running at PC's startup and shutting down only with the whole machine. If 3-5 such programs will sneak on your computer, their simultaneous operation overburdens the system, and demands so many resources that reliable tools just can't perform its functions. When the system is in this state, it begins to suffer from trouble turn-offs, retardation and fatal errors of basic services. If you witness any of these symptoms - you should check the hard drive with a reputable anti-virus or delete all dangerous software manually.
