What is QueryService.net

All tools have their tasks, and QueryService.net is no exception. However, the true task of this advertising program differs from those stated. Typically, the specification of adware states that it will be extremely useful. Most of suchlike software declare to support you to look for anything in the Internet. Search for deals, discounts and sales online, help in the finding of latest games, music or movies and performing some functions in Twitter - these are the functions that most of advertising tools promise to accomplish. At first glance it seems really good, but if you think about it, you understand that all features that are stated have long been implemented in the default feature set of all browsers or social networks. Haven't you thought about why the advantages of advertising programs are so indistinct?

Simply said, defrayal of advertising services is made based on the amount of clicks done on the banner, or the quantity of clicks from link to the web-page. All adware's actions are aimed at convincing you click on the ads. Even if you're not interested in hacker's propositions - you can click on the link, at least to hide an uncomfortable intrusive ad. Advertisers don't care how the clicks were made, and scammers will obtain their money both for the true click and for the incidental one. In this case we see how quantity overcomes quality, as scammers create lots of low quality viruses that flood us with hype. Trusting customer can take the ads provided by adware seriously, and try to find something interesting among these propositions, doing hundreds of clicks every day.

Advertisement software is being distributed in many ways: through viral web-sites on which the unwanted download might begin at each click, and via bundled installation. The "website" method can be lightly neutralized: you should visit only those sites which are fully safe, and appear on the first positions in the search results. Besides that, your browser and anti-virus software will display the warning, if the website is suspicious. The bundled installation technique is a little bit different: you must be aware of it only when you are installing some software. Installation in bundles is simple: QueryService.net is added to installers of useful tools. The installer is changed to offer you to get more software except the needed one. In some variations you just cannot decline the process, and in some - there's no sign of extraneous installation. You should understand that: if QueryService.net had infected your system with help of installation in bundles, you, probably, have some more adware or malware. So, if you see the choice between “safe install” and “partial installation” – pick the second option. This will allow you to pick what tool you want to install and which you do not.
