How to remove (uninstall)

This guide will tell you the important things about an advertising program called and manners to remove it. If you see too much pop-ups on the Internet, and the efficiency of the computer has recently diminished - this item will explain you what advertising tools are, identify the main problem and sweep the computer of suspicious software.

There are three basic forms of advertising software which may be found on the Web nowadays: browser toolbars, redirects and adware. These tools were originally developed not to benefit users, and their functions are aimed only at getting money from advertising fraud. Most of users believe that these programs are good, being deluded by large catalogues of their features, but all these features either do not work, or do not exist at all. So, what's the real aim of adware?

  • Classic adware is famous for the never-ending spam with all possible kinds of ads, pop-ups and banners. Scammers want adware to seem useful, so it can be disguised as one of hundreds of reliable programs for web-browsing, text redacting, data archiving, etc. Offers which are displayed by advertising programs are not secure and we strongly suggest you not to click on them.
  • Browser toolbars also perform advertising functions, but less actively than the previous two types of adware. In addition they collect info about your search queries and viewed sites, which are then transmitted on to web-criminals for further research. Suchlike data is of significant value for each advertising company.
  • Browser hijackers don't show ads on the reliable web-pages. Hijackers periodically open a special page in your browser that redirects to one of the dangerous websites.

Each of above written species of adware uses different methods to get into the machine and to act in it. They have one common feature - they all call issues for the user and prevent the victim from surfing the Web. Except for obvious disadvantage, such as the growing number of ads and pop-ups, has another perilous property: the abnormal decrease of computer's security.


Now you understand what purposes are pursued by advertising programs and, it's time to learn how to detect advertising program and remove it. The first and the most dangerous attribute of penetration is the very high percentage of advertising banners. The second sign is the emergence of extraneous software on your machine that you haven’t downloaded. This may appear if user passes the link to download of the malicious file. In this case, you may not even understand how perilous software gets onto your computer.

The mark №2 is a significant slowdown of the PC, and an increase in its boot time. It should be noted that these issues often appear for other causes, not related to undesired software. The computer is slowing down because each adware is running endlessly and never turns off. It means that virus is starting at PC's boot and shutting down only when the PC stops working. When the quantity of these tools reaches the critical point, their contemporaneous operation overburdens the system, and demands so much resources that good programs just cannot work. This can call deceleration, fatal errors of various programs and emergency shutdowns. If you notice any of these symptoms - you need to scan the machine with a decent anti-virus or delete all viruses in manual mode.
