How to remove (uninstall) Newtab.win

Newtab.win is a tricky and cheap program that infects the computer and shows tons of ads. If you see ads right now on your screen, and you have found some suspicious program in the system, called Newtab.win – then we’re here to help you.

This is a brief removal guide for Newtab.win removal, that has a useful information about adware in general, and ways of penetration into the system. We will also describe some tips that will help you to get rid of adware, and protect your system from it.

What is Newtab.win

Newtab.win

Let’s find out once and for all: what is Newtab.win? There are several features, which distinguish Newtab.win from both useful programs and real viruses, so we think that you have to know this.

  1. Newtab.win is not a virus, which means that it can’t infect the system independently, but acts according to users’ doings. Literally: this means that if you got Newtab.win on your PC – you downloaded it by yourself.
  2. Newtab.win is not dangerous for the system by itself. It can’t remove, erase or encrypt files, as well as cause any other direct harm to your computer. It only can change the browser’s and system’s settings to make you see more ads, and make the system more vulnerable.
  3. Newtab.win is not a useful program in any meaning of this word, so you shouldn’t believe in what it says about its own features. It was created to distribute ads, and it will do that only, and not any other things. It’s not a system cleaner, not a smart finder of whatever it says on the Internet, and not a super-useful tool for social networks. It’s an adware, and it is dangerous.
  4. Even as Newtab.win isn’t dangerous for the system directly, it bears a deferred peril of system obstruction. Its actions are like a slow poison that flows inside the system and makes it vulnerable and slow, letting other viruses to enter the system.

Now you see that Newtab.win is not a virus, but not a useful software also. It’s just a trashy piece of code that can perform only one task, and this task is to show ads. Even more: adware’s not even showing it. Ads are shown by a website to which you’re being redirected, and the adware itself just changes the settings of your browser. The changes are plain and are all aimed at showing the scammers’ website instead of the regular homepage and search engine. When a user visits that site and tries to use it as he usually uses a search engine – he receives ads, ads and more ads in all their forms and sizes. You should know that these are not the regular ads, and they have nothing in common with normal advertising, as they aren’t aimed at selling anything – just at making you click them.

Newtab.win was made not to annoy you, but to make money for web-criminals. It means that all your actions are bringing money to scammers, and each time you click the link – they get a few cents. The more ads you see on your screen – the faster you’re trying to hide or close them, and each time you’re clicking on one of it – you expose your system to a danger of infection. That’s how Newtab.win works, and if you want to stop that – you should remove it from the system, and make sure that other viruses won’t enter it. It can be done through one method: through improving your discipline on the Internet. It’s not as grim as it seems, and we can tell you how to do that:

  • Don’t use the unlicensed or pirated software. If the program is paid – it most likely doesn’t have any viruses or adware.
  • Don’t visit the untrusted websites, and don’t download anything from places that don’t seem reliable.
  • Think twice before downloading a program that has unclear functions. If they’re not really useful? And you doubt even a little – don’t download it.
  • Keep your antivirus always up to date, so it will protect the system more efficient.

These rules are simple, but effective and will help you to protect the system from outer threats for a long time. Now, let’s get to the deletion.
