Botcrawls.com

Advertising tools include a pretty long list of miscellaneous sorts, but the very known of them are redirects, browser toolbars and adware. You should realize that they aren't the useful programs that advertise other useful software - they were created to generate tons of spam. Hackers are trying really hard to persuade you that suchlike tools are useful: they create nice descriptions and promise incredible usability and benefit. To make it easier for you, we will describe the basic features of each adware type.

  • Usual adware is famous for the countless spam with different ads, pop-ups and banners. Scammers want adware to look decent, so it can be disguised as one of dozens of worthy tools for web-browsing, text redacting, data archiving, etc. Offers that are generated by adware aren't dependable and we strongly advise you not to click on them.
  • Toolbars are not so irritating as browser hijackers and adware, but except advertising actions they can collect the data about user's system and about his doings on the Internet. Such info may be used against its owner or passed to third parties for a decent price.
  • Browser hijackers invite another kind of problem. Hijackers, from time to time open a scammer's site in your browser that redirects to one of the dangerous websites.

All these utilities along and each of them can be used for various kinds of Internet-fraud. These programs have one common feature - they all call problems for the user and prevent him from browsing the Web. Except that, according to that all advertising programs are trying to convince you to visit the strange and often dangerous web-pages, they invite other malicious programs to infect the PC.

 

Now you understand what purposes are pursued by advertising tools and, you should understand how to reveal it. It's evident that the main property of advertising software is an increase in the number of ads. The second mark is the emersion of strange programs on your computer that you haven’t installed. Such things may appear if the ad shown by adware does not lead to the view of website, but to direct loading of the malicious file. Perilous tools act stealthy and you cannot see that you just installed them.

The third sign is a significant deceleration of the machine, and an enlargement in the loading time of the system. Deceleration of machine's performance is not always the effect of adware, but this happens quite frequently. The ground for this lag is that in contradistinction to regular software, virus must constantly act, generating banners and redirecting user to dangerous pages. It means that the program is launching at PC's startup and shutting down only with the whole machine. If 4 or more such tools will get onto your machine, their simultaneous work overburdens the system, and requires so many resources that reliable tools simply can't work. This can summon fatal errors of basic programs, lags and trouble turn-offs. If you see any of these attributes - you should scan the system via reputable antivirus or remove all adware manually.
