What is Slikdealer.com

Slikdealer.com

Each utility has its aim, and this adware is no exception. However, the true aim of this adware doesn't match with the declared ones. Typically, the description of adware states that it will be extremely helpful. Most of suchlike programs promise to assist in the search for goods or information on the Internet. Search for sales, discounts and deals on the Internet, help in the download of recent music, movies or games and tracking the activity of friends in social networks - that's the most prevalent functions of adware. The primary thing you should do when you're about to install some software - to take thought, is it really helpful? How do you think, why are all adware descriptions so blurred? The "safer", "better" or "faster" web-browsing is a excellent example of suchlike features, because these options are really blurry and almost impossible to observe. So, advertising software do not do anything, and just take up space in the machine's memory? Not at all! They perform a highly substantial function, - to allow hackers to obtain thousands of dollars per day on gullible users.

 

There is a belief on the Internet that the majority of perilous programs are created just "for fun". It makes sense, right?

In fact, any undesired software performs specific feature, and it is, generally, associated with earnings. It is difficult to guess why advertising program shows so much ads, but when you get it, it appears pretty plain. All these ads are shown to make money from referrals. Simply stated, defrayal of promotional services is made according to the amount of clicks made on the ad, or the quantity of referrals from ad to the web-site. All adware's actions are aimed at persuading you pass the link. Yet if you are not interested in any of the suggestions - you might click on the link, at least to close an unwanted intrusive banner. Advertisers don't want to know in which way the clicks were made, and online-criminals will get their reward both for the decent click and for the random one. However this amount isn’t large, do not neglect the amount of clicks! Credible user can decide that suchlike advertisement is trustworthy, and try to find something fine among these proposals, making dozens of clicks daily. Large AV-software vendors and tech-support communities receive tens of thousands of complaints on Slikdealer.com, so swindlers make really nice money on it.

We know two primary ways of adware spread: the deployment on the infected web-sites and installation in bundles with free software. Infected web-pages are really easy to identify: they appear on the last pages in search, and they intrusively offer to download something. Besides that, your browser and antivirus software will show the notification, if the web-site is suspicious. To protect your system from the penetration via the bundled installation technique, you must attentively observe the installation of all programs. Bundled installation means that Slikdealer.com is integrated into installation packages of useful programs. The installation tool is changed to offer you to get extra programs instead of the one that you wanted. All fields are pre-checked, and if you click “OK” – you will get at 4-5 tools instead of one. You have to know that: if Slikdealer.com had entered your computer with help of bundled installation, you, probably, have some more adware or malware. According to this, when you see the choice between “recommended installation” and “installation for practiced users” – pick the second variant. Then you will be able to pick which program you are going to install and which you do not.
