What is Safe.search.tools

Safe.search.tools

Hackers don't create adware just to irritate you, and each virus has exact goals. However, the true purpose of this advertising program doesn't coincide with the stated ones. Commonly, the description of adware promises that it is highly useful. 90% of adware state to assist you to look for something in the Internet. Performing some functions in social networks, search for deals, sales and discounts online and help in the search for latest music, games or movies - these are the functions that the majority of advertising tools promise to perform. The first thing you have to do if you want to install any program - to take thought, is it really useful? How do you think, why the functions of advertising tools are so blurred?

So, adware are completely useless, and is just consuming space on your hard drive? Of course not!! This software performs a highly important task, - to let hackers to receive thousands of dollars per day on gullible users.

 

We don't remember how it happened but today there is an opinion that hackers develop the viruses with no particular reason. Viruses slow down the PC, prevent the functions of certain software, and web-criminals are so excited about it that they are willing to spend days, designing pointless adware. Alright, I'm joking. The adware can't be useless, and even if you don't realize what it does - you'll know it later. For instance, the indiscriminate showing of annoying advertising on every website is not an accident. All these ads are generated to obtain money from clicks. Many users know that advertisement in browsers is paid on the special system, called pay per click. It means that the client pays for every referral from the ad to the site. So, the more ads adware is showing you, the better is the possibility that you will be interested and pass the link. Even if you're not interested in any of the propositions - the click may still be made, at least to close an unwanted irritating ad. The system doesn't want to know how the click was made, and swindlers will get their reward both for the decent click and for the accidental one. Here we see how numbers defeat quality, as hackers make a lot of trashy advertising programs that flood us with hype. Gullible customer can take the ads shown by Safe.search.tools in earnest, and look for something fine among adware propositions, doing hundreds of clicks per day. Large AV-software developers and tech-support communities get thousands of reports on Safe.search.tools, so swindlers do pretty good money on it.

We know two main methods of advertising tool distribution: the placement on the hacked web-sites and installation in bundles with good software. Dangerous web-pages are really easy to identify: they appear on the last positions in search, and they intrusively suggest to buy something. Except that, pay attention to the warnings that your browser and antivirus display. To shield your system from the penetration via the second method, you should attentively observe the installation of all programs. Bundled installation means that adware is integrated into installation packages of free programs. You install some program and in one of the windows during installation appears a suggestion to get some more programs. In many variants you just cannot cancel the installation, and in some - there's no sign of extraneous installation. You need to understand that: if Safe.search.tools had infected your computer through installation in bundles, you, probably, have some more adware or malware. So, when you see the option between “safe installation” and “partial installation” – pick the second variant. Doing this you will be able to pick which program you wish to install and what you don’t.
