How to remove (uninstall) Startme.online

The tool that we want to talk about is known as Startme.online. If your PC is free of Startme.online – you need to beware of it, and if you’ve already installed it – you must eliminate it ASAP. It has no useful functions, since it was made only to earn money to its developers, and to irritate its victims. Have you noticed the high amount of advertising in browser, or the switched homepage? Don't you think that it's strange that the default search engine is shifted to the strange web-page, and it opens each time when you start the browser? These are the tags of adware working in the system and if you've seen few of them – your machine is in danger.

What is Startme.online

Startme.online

All programs have their tasks, and Startme.online isn't an exception. But, the real aim of Startme.online does not match with the declared ones. Commonly, the depiction of adware promises that it will be very useful. Most of suchlike programs declare to support you to search for anything on the Internet. Performing some functions in Twitter, search for sales, discounts and deals online and help in the search for latest games, music or movies - that's the most spread functions of adware. At first look it seems really good, but when you start thinking about it, you realize that all features that are declared have long been imbued in the default feature set of all browsers or social networks. Actually, the aim of hackers is to convince you that their adware performs something that is impossible to examine. The "safer", "better" or "faster" web-browsing is a brilliant sample of suchlike function, since these options are very indistinct and they're very to supervise. So, advertising software are completely useless, and just take up space in the machine's memory? No, they have one significant task and it is to cheat the users and to make money on ads.

 

There is an opinion on the Internet that most of perilous programs have no specific aim. Malicious programs spoil the PC, intervene with the work of reliable tools, and hackers are so excited about it that they want to spend days, designing irritating viruses. Alright, it was a joke. The adware are always aimed for something, and even if you don't understand what it is for - you will know it later. For instance, the indiscriminate display of useless advertising on each page isn't accidental. All this advertising is generated to obtain money on referrals. Many users know that browser ads are paid on the pay-per-click system. It means that the client pays for every transition from the banner to the web-page. So, the more ads adware shows you, the higher is the chance that you will take an interest in it and click on the link. Yet if you're not interested in any of the ads - you can click on advertising, to hide an unwanted annoying ad. Every click costs money and based on the type of advertisement it can count from 0.1 to 5 cents and for some types of advertisement even more. In this case we see how numbers beat quality, as swindlers develop hundreds of low quality advertising programs that spam with hype. Trusting user can take the ads given by malware seriously, and look for something worthwhile among adware proposals, making dozens of clicks per day. Anti-virus companies and malware-fighting communities receive thousands of complaints on Startme.online, so swindlers are doing really nice money on it.

Advertisement tools are being spread in several techniques: with help of infected web-sites where the unwanted download might begin after each click, and using the installation in bundles. The first way may be easily avoided: you should only visit web-sites which are considered trustworthy, and are on the first pages in browser. Except that, listen to the warnings that your browser and anti-virus display. The bundled installation way is a little bit different: you must be aware of it only when you install some software. Installation in bundles means that adware is added to installers of other programs. User installs some program and the pop-up window during the process emerges a suggestion to install some additional tools. All boxes are pre-checked, and by clicking “OK” – you will install at 4-5 tools instead of one. Most likely, all software except the wanted one will be trashy or even dangerous.
