There are three basic kinds of adware which might be found on the Internet nowadays: browser toolbars, adware and browser hijackers. You have to realize that the abundance of ads isn't accidental - they were intended to act this way from the start. Many users mistakenly think that such tools are worthy, being tricked by massive catalogues of their functions, but all these advantages either do not work, or do not exist at all. To make it easier for you, we will describe the main features of each type of advertising tools.

  • Browser hijackers don't generate advertising on extraneous websites. Hijackers, from time to time open a special web-page in your browser that redirects to one of the sites with advertising and malicious links.
  • Toolbars are not so annoying as adware and hijackers, but ads are not their only task. They can collect the information about victim's machine and about his activity in the Web. Suchlike information is of considerable value for any advertising company.
  • Usual adware is known because of endless spam with all possible kinds of pop-ups, banners and ads. Fraudsters are trying to make adware seem good, so it can be disguised as one of many worthy tools for web-browsing, data archiving, text redacting, etc. Ads appear as separate blocks in search results, links or pop-ups.

Suchlike programs together and every one of them might be applied for different methods of advertising cheating. Despite the difference in ways, they are all united by the thing that they were from the very beginning produced for deception and scam. Except that, since all adware tries to convince you to click on links to unknown and often infected web-pages, they allow other malicious programs to penetrate the machine.

 

Now, when we see for what purpose was this malware developed, you should know how to find it. It's evident that the primary property of infection is the rise in the quantity of pop-ups. Sign #2 is the emergence of useless programs in the system that you don't remember downloading. This can happen if customer passes the link to download of the malicious file. Harmful tools behave stealthy so you might not realize that you actually installed them.

The sign #2 is a noticeable slowdown of the PC, and an growth in its boot time. You should know that these problems often appear for other roots, not related to advertising software. PC retards because all advertising program is running in the background and never stops. It means that virus is starting at system startup and shutting down only with the whole computer.

This can cause fatal errors of important services, retardation and emergency turn-offs. If you see any of these symptoms - you need to check the machine via good antiviral tool or eliminate all undesired software in manual mode.
