Antrie.com

Hackers don't develop adware only to irritate users, and each virus has exact aims. But, if you believe that the description of Antrie.com is really helpful - you're wrong. Typically, the specification of adware declares that it is super useful. 95% of these tools promise that they can support in the look for anything on the Internet. Search for sales, discounts and deals online, supervising the activity of friends in social networks and help in the finding of latest music, games or movies - these are the functions that most of adware declare to carry out. The most important thing you have to do if you're going to install any program - to take thought, is it really helpful? Actually, the aim of malware developers is to convince the user that their program performs a function which is impossible to examine. The "faster", "better" or "safer" web-surfing is a excellent example of suchlike features, as these parameters are really blurry and they're very to supervise. According to this, adware are completely useless, and is just consuming space in the computer's memory? Not at all! This software performs a highly substantial function, - to let Internet criminals to earn thousands of dollars per day on novice users.

 

Novice users believe that the majority of dangerous programs are created without any particular reason. Harmful programs retard the PC, interfere with the work of certain tools, and hackers are so excited about it that they are willing to spend their time and money to create silly and irritating viruses. Actually, all viruses perform some function, and it is, in most cases, associated with earnings. For example, the incessant display of dozens of advertising on every page isn't accidental. All this advertising is shown to obtain money from referrals. Simply said, payment of promotional services is made according to the amount of clicks made on the advertisement, or the number of referrals from banner to the site. All advertising software's actions are aimed at making you click on the ads. Even if you are not interested in any of the proposals - you will click on the link, at least to close an unwanted intrusive ad. Advertisers don't care how the click was done, and swindlers will obtain their payment both for the true click and for the accidental one. In this case we see that numbers defeat quality, as hackers develop lots of trashy advertising tools that flood us with annoying ads. Trusting man can take the advertising provided by adware in earnest, and try to find something fine among these offers, making dozens of clicks per day. Based on our data, the number of computers, infected by Antrie.com is counted on hundreds of thousands of people, and if each of them is doing 10-20 clicks daily, the hacker's income don't seem so insignificant.

Methods to remove Antrie.com

By the way, there is another effect of Antrie.com that in the long perspective may bring huge damage to your computer. The point is that Antrie.com modifies browser controls in order to advertise more efficiently which makes it very defenseless against all viruses. Adware wants to change three parameters: start page, the filtering of annoying ads and default search engine.

The adware will overwhelm your system, because each referral on the link, shown by adware invites one more adware in the system. There is only one technique to stop advertising and shield your system from viral danger - to uninstall Antrie.com.

We know two primary methods of adware spread: the deployment on the infected web-pages and bundled installation with free programs. Harmful web-pages are very easy to know: they are on the last positions of search, and they intrusively offer to download something. Except that, pay attention to the warnings that your browser and AV-tool show. To shield your machine from the infection through the bundled installation technique, you have to attentively observe the installation of any program. Installation in bundles means that Antrie.com is integrated into installers of useful programs. The installation program is modified to suggest you to install more tools except the needed one. All boxes are already checked, and by clicking “OK” – you will get at 3-4 tools in addition to the wanted one.

Then you will be able to choose which software you want to install and which you don’t.
