Destyy.com adware

All tools have their aims, and Destyy.com isn't an exception. However, the real aim of Destyy.com does not coincide with the declared ones. Commonly, the depiction of the advertising program states that it is very useful. 99% of adware declare that they will assist you to search for anything in the Internet. Help in the search for latest movies, games or music, observing the activity of friends in Twitter and search for sales, deals and discounts on the Internet - that's the most prevalent features of adware. The first thing you should do when you want to download any program - to think, is it really helpful? How do you think, why the functions of advertising tools are so indistinct? The "better", "safer" or "faster" search on the Internet is a pure example of suchlike functions, since these options are really indistinct and they're very to observe.

This software performs a highly substantial function, - to help online criminals to obtain from $1000 to $5000 a day from gullible users.

Undesired programs slow down the PC, prevent the work of reliable programs, and hackers are so excited about it that they are willing to spend their time and money to develop stupid and annoying adware. Alright, it was a joke. There are no useless malware. For example, the indiscriminate showing of useless ads on each website isn't accidental. All these ads are generated to earn money from referrals. Many people heard that advertising in Internet is paid on the special system, called pay per click, which means that the client pays for each transition from the pop-up to the web-page. Thus, the more banners adware displays you, the bigger is the chance that you will take an interest in it and click on the link. Even if you don't take interest in adware's ads - the click might still be done, at least in order to close an uncomfortable annoying ad. Each referral costs money and depending on the sort of ads it can be worth from 0.1 to 5 cents and in some cases even more. Although this payment isn’t large, do not forget about the quantity of infected computers! Trusting operator can take the ads shown by Destyy.com seriously, and search for something interesting among these propositions, making tens of referrals every day. According to our information, the quantity of computers, infected by Destyy.com is at least 50 000, and if all of them are making ten to twenty clicks daily, the hacker's earnings don't seem so insignificant.

Bundled installation technique functions because of people's trustfulness and the harmful habit to press OK without reading. User installs some program and in one of the windows during installation emerges a suggestion to get some more software.
