How to remove (uninstall) Th.hao123.com

This page is devoted to an unwanted tool called Th.hao123.com and methods to delete it. If you see lots of advertising on the Internet, and the performance of your machine has abruptly decreased - this item will explain you what advertising programs are, understand the basic issue and clean the system of undesired programs.

Th.hao123.com

There are three main types of adware which may be found on the Internet nowadays: browser toolbars, browser hijackers and adware. You should realize that they aren't the good tools that promote other useful software - they were developed to generate tons of spam. Fraudsters are trying very hard to persuade people that suchlike tools are reliable: they describe them very well and promise great usability and advantage. What do these utilities actually do?

  • Browser hijackers don't generate advertising on extraneous sites. Hijackers periodically open a special page in user's browser that redirects to one of the sites with advertising and untrusted links.
  • Toolbars are less irritating than adware and hijackers, but except advertising actions they also collect the info about victim's computer and about his doings in the Web. Such information is of considerable value for each advertising company.
  • Adware's special attribute is that it places advertising information on all sites that the user views and in some cases, on the desktop. Such tools could be masked almost to anything: software for finding games and movies, driver updaters, media players, system optimizers and much more. Advertising appears as distinct blocks in search results, links or pop-ups.

The mentioned utilities along and each of them might be used for various types of advertising cheating. They have one common feature - they all cause issues for the customer and prevent him from using the browser. Except for apparent inconvenience, such as abundance of irritating offers, Th.hao123.com has one more malicious property: the abnormal lowering of computer's security.

 

Now, when we see why was Th.hao123.com, we will tell you how to locate it. The first and the most important symptom of adware is the very high percentage of advertising banners. Sign #2 is the appearance of strange programs on your PC that you don't remember installing. Such thing may happen when customer passes each link that Th.hao123.com provides, visiting the suspicious sites and loading viruses from there. If such thing happens, you may not even notice how harmful software enters your PC.

The third sign is a noticeable deceleration of the PC, and an growth in its boot time. Retardation of computer's performance isn't only the consequent of virus, but this appears very often. The ground for such retardation is that unlike good software, adware must permanently work, displaying pop-ups and redirecting user to dangerous pages. It means that the program is launching at PC's startup and shutting down only when the PC stops working. If 5 or more such tools will get into your machine, their contemporaneous functioning overloads the system, and needs so much resources that good software simply can't run. This can summon emergency shutdowns, retardation and fatal errors of basic programs. If you witness any of these attributes - you have to check the machine with a quality antivirus or eliminate all adware by hand.
