Search.yourspeedtester.com

There are three main types of adware that spread through the Internet these days: adware, browser hijackers and browser toolbars. These tools weren't helpful from the first days, so their features are aimed only at getting money by deceiving users. Many customers mistakenly think that these tools are useful, being fooled by impressive catalogues of their functions, but all these features either do not work, or do not exist at all. What do these programs really do?

  • Browser toolbars also perform advertising functions, but less actively than the previous two kinds of advertising software. Except that they gather information about user's search queries and visited websites that are then sent on to web-criminals for further resale. Suchlike information is of significant value for any advertising company.
  • Browser hijackers do not place advertising on the reliable web-sites. Hijackers, from time to time open a special web-page in user's browser that redirects to one of the sites with ads and suspicious links.
  • Adware differs in that it places annoying ads on all sites that the victim views and in some cases, on the desktop. These tools can be masked almost to anything: software for finding games and movies, driver updaters, system optimizers, media players and much more. Advertising comes up as pop-ups, links or separate units in the browser.

Adware is different and use particular methods to infect the computer and to work inside of it. These advertising utilities have one thing in common - they all cause inconvenience to the victim and prevent him from Web-surfing. Except that, since all these programs are trying to make the customer to view the strange and sometimes dangerous web-pages, they let other malicious programs to penetrate the computer.

 

Now, when you know why was this "virus" made, we will tell you how to discover it. The first and the most important mark of infection is the advertising overflow. Another mark is the emersion of weird programs on your computer that you don't remember installing. This may happen if customer passes the link to download of the installation file. In this case, you might not even notice how virus penetrates the system.

Another attribute is a significant slowdown of the PC, and an increase in the loading time of the system. We should say that these issues frequently appear for other reasons, not related to suspicious software. PC is slowing down because each advertising software is running endlessly and never turns off. This means that adware is running at system boot and shutting down only with the whole machine. If 3-5 such programs will sneak on your computer, their contemporaneous functioning begins to overload the system, and takes so many resources that reliable programs simply cannot work. When the computer is in this state, it starts to suffer from emergency shutdowns, deceleration and critical errors of basic programs. If you see any of these marks - you should scan the hard drive with a high antiviral tool or delete all viruses manually.
