How to remove (uninstall) History Button

The software that we're going to talk about is called History Button. If you don’t have History Button on your machine – you should be aware of it, and if you’ve already installed it – you need to remove it now. It has no helpful functions, because it was created only to bring benefit to online-fraudsters, and to annoy its victims. Have you noticed the huge amount of advertisement on the Internet, or the switched start page? How do you think, is it normal that the default search system is changed to the unknown web-page, and it appears each time when you open the browser? The signs that are listed above tell us that the PC is affected by some kind of adware, and this program must be removed.

What is History Button

Scammers don't make adware just to annoy you, and every adware has exact goals. But, if you think that the description of History Button is true is really useful - you've made a mistake. Commonly, the description of adware declares that it will be super helpful. 95% of adware state that they will assist you to search for something on the Internet. Search for deals, discounts and sales online, performing some functions in Facebook and assistance in the search for latest movies, music or games - that's the features that 99% of adware declare to accomplish. The most important thing you need to do if you want to download any program - to figure out, is it really useful? How do you think, why the advantages of advertising tools are so vague? The "faster", "safer" or "better" web-browsing is a excellent sample of suchlike feature, because these parameters are very blurry and nearly impossible to trace. According to this, adware are completely useless, and just take up space in the machine's memory? Not at all! This software performs a very substantial function, - to allow Internet scammers to earn thousands of dollars a day from novice users.

 

We don't know where it came from but now some users think that hackers make the viruses with no logical reason. It's pretty reasonable, yes? Hacker knows that out there somewhere is you, endeavoring to delete his malware, and the feeling is really good! Alright, I'm joking. There are no useless viruses. For example, the incessant display of suspicious advertising on each website is not accidental. All these ads are shown to obtain money from referrals. Simply said, defrayment of advertising services is made according to the quantity of clicks made on the ad, or the quantity of referrals from pop-up to the website. So, the more hype advertising program shows you, the better is the chance that you will take an interest in it and click on the link. Yet if user is not interested in adware's offers - you will click on advertising, to close an unwanted annoying banner. Every referral costs money and based on the nature of advertising it can cost from 0.1 to 5 cents and in some cases even more. Here we see how quantity overcomes quality, as scammers create a lot of trashy programs that spam with intrusive ads. Gullible operator can take the advertising provided by adware seriously, and search for something fine among these proposals, doing hundreds of referrals per day. Big AV-software vendors and tech-support forums receive tens of thousands of complaints on History Button, so hackers make really good money on it.

Adware being spread in several methods: with help of infected websites on which the unwanted download may begin at each click, and using the bundled installation. The "website" method may be simply neutralized: you must only visit web-sites which are fully trustworthy, and appear on the first pages in browser. In addition, pay attention to the notifications of your antivirus program and browser. To guard yourself from the infection through the bundled installation technique, you should closely observe the installation of all programs. Bundled installation method is so efficient because of user's trustfulness and the pernicious habit to click OK without reading. The installation tool is modified to suggest you to get more tools instead of the needed one. In some editions you just can't uncheck the fields, and in some - there's no notification about additional software. Naturally, all software except the needed one will be meaningless or even perilous. So, when you see the option between “recommended install” and “partial installation” – choose the second variant. Keep this in mind every time you install some program - and your machine will be noticeably cleaner.
