Search.progressgar.com

There are three main sorts of advertising software that might be found on the Internet these days: browser toolbars, adware and browser hijackers. These tools are initially developed not to be useful, and their aim is to receive money from advertising fraud. Scammers try really hard to persuade you that suchlike programs are good: they create extensive descriptions and promise awesome efficiency and benefit. To make it clear for you, we will describe the basic features of each adware type.

  • Browser hijackers don't generate ads on the reliable web-sites. Instead of pop-ups they redirect the users to the dangerous web-sites. These programs help the dishonest website owners to create traffic and endangers the whole machine.
  • Adware differs in that it exposes advertising information on every website that the user views and in some cases, on the desktop. These utilities could be disguised as anything: system optimizers, video and audio players, programs for updating and downloading drivers, software for finding games and movies and even more. Ads that are generated by advertising programs are not secure and you better not click on them.
  • Toolbars are not so irritating as adware and hijackers, but except showing ads they also gather the info about victim's computer and about his doings in the Web. Suchlike information is of significant value for any advertising company.

All these software along and every one of them could be used for different sorts of advertising scam. In spite of the difference in methods, they have one fact in common: they were originally designed for fraud and deceit. By the way, since all suchlike tools try to force you to click on links to strange and even perilous websites, they allow other viruses to penetrate the system.

 

So, you see which aims are pursued by Search.progressgar.com and, it's time to understand how to find malware and eliminate it. You already know that the principal property of infection is an increase in the number of spam. The second symptom is the emergence of useless tools on your PC that you haven’t installed. Such thing may appear when victim passes all links that adware provides, visiting the infected websites and downloading viruses from them. In this case, you might not even understand how virus penetrates the system.

The attribute #2 is a heavy retardation of the PC, and an enlargement in the loading time of the system. Retardation of PC speed is not always the consequent of adware, but this happens very often. PC becomes slow because any advertising tool is running endlessly and never turns off. This means that virus is launching at computer's boot and shutting down only with the whole PC. If 3 or more such programs will sneak on your PC, their synchronous functioning overloads the system, and needs so much resources that good software simply can't operate. This can call critical errors of basic services, retardation and trouble shutdowns. If you notice any of these signs - you should check the PC via good antivirus or clean it of viruses in manual manner.
