How to remove (uninstall)

This entry is devoted to an unwanted program called and ways to remove it. If you see lots of ads in the browser, and the performance of the machine has suddenly decreased - this item will explain you what advertising tools are, understand the current issue and sweep the machine of strange programs.

There are three main species of advertising utilities that spread through the Web these days: adware, redirects and browser toolbars. These tools weren't helpful from the very beginning, and their target is to get money from advertising fraud. The majority of customers mistakenly think that these utilities are useful, being deceived by large lists of their advantages, but all these advantages either aren't working, or do not exist at all. What do these programs actually do?

  • Browser hijackers do not show ads on well-known sites. Hijackers periodically open a scammer's page in your browser that redirects to one of the dangerous websites.
  • Adware's primary attribute is that it shows suspicious ads on all sites that the victim views and sometimes, on the desktop. Such tools could be masked almost to anything: software for finding games and movies, system optimizers, programs for updating and downloading drivers, video and audio players and much more. Proposals that are generated by advertising tools are not dependable and you better not click on them.
  • Toolbars are not so irritating as browser hijackers and adware, but except advertising actions they also gather the information about victim's machine and about his activity on the Internet. Such information is of significant value for each advertising company.

All these utilities along and each of them might be used for different types of Internet-scam. Despite the difference in modes, they have one fact in common: they were originally made for deception and scam. Except that, according to that all these tools are trying to convince the user to click on links to weird and even infected sites, they allow other malware to enter the PC.


Now, when you know for what purpose was, you should know how to reveal it. The biggest and the most noticeable sign of infection is the advertising overflow. Symptom #2 is the emersion of useless programs in the system that you haven’t downloaded. Such thing can happen when customer clicks on each link that adware provides, visiting the viral pages and loading programs from them. In this case, you may not even understand how dangerous program gets into your PC.

The third attribute is a hard lag of the machine, and an growth in the boot time of the system. Slowdown of computer's performance isn't always the effect of hazardous tools, but this appears very often. The reason for such deceleration is that unlike decent programs, virus must permanently act, displaying advertising and redirecting user to viral websites. It means that virus is launching at PC's boot and shutting down only when the PC stops working. When the amount of adware reaches the edge, their synchronous running begins to overload the system, and takes so many resources that useful software simply can't operate. When the computer is in such state, it begins to suffer from fatal errors of important programs, emergency turn-offs and deceleration. If you witness any of these symptoms - you should scan the machine via good AV tool or remove all viruses in manual mode.
