Pop.yeachi.cn

What is Pop.yeachi.cn

Pop.yeachi.cn, as you could guess erenow, is adware. Pop.yeachi.cn can do nothing well, as it’s developed to do one thing: to annoy you. We're joking, the driving-crazy stuff is not its final purpose, but you'll be mad anyway while adware does its job – shows advertising banners. It infests the laptop, it modifies the controls of your browser and shows you a heap of pop-ups, making sure that they have your attention. Scammers get a little money for each click you’ve made, and now you understand why the ads keep appearing: it’s pure money. In the sections below, we will tell you in which manner Pop.yeachi.cn infected the computer and how it can be defended against similar viruses. If you’re not interested and simply want to uninstall adware ASAP – skip the coming parts and look at the removal advice.

When the infestation is done, Pop.yeachi.cn modifies the properties of your browser. It’s only thing that it's capable of doing, as the main part of this illegal scheme is the fake search engine which takes over your browser when you download Pop.yeachi.cn. So, the virus changes the pre-set start page and your favorite search engine and puts the unreliable search instead of them. After that, instead of searching via the reputable Yahoo, Google, Bing or whatever search you're used to – you’ll surf the Net through the wretched scammers' search that gives away wrong links ads pop-up windows of all sorts and sizes. One more adware's task is to spoil the settings of browser shortcuts in a way that in case you recover the regular controls, you will automatically open the untrusted search system in the starting tab.

Pop.yeachi.cn cannot be deleted as a regular program, and if you try it - the virus will recover. It happens thanks to the Pop.yeachi.cn's protective mechanisms, and we will explain to you how they work:

  • A system task is the easiest manner to start the reinstallation of the adware if the user had removed it. Scheduled tasks aren’t often used by usual computer owners, so Pop.yeachi.cn simply creates a task to check if it’s working, and if it’s not – to download and set it again. The task is being launched every time you reboot your workstation, and thanks to it Pop.yeachi.cn is so hard to erase.
  • Another technique has the similar aim, but it uses the system registry and not the Scheduled Tasks service. You need to inspect the registry to defeat this manner, but it’s a rather hard task for a newbie. All other registry items are very important, and by deleting any of them, you might inflict serious harm to the system.

 

How Pop.yeachi.cn got into the system

To clarify the things a bit, we’ll picture the process in total. Most of the advertising programs are clones of each other, duplicated many times and passed to different web-criminals with minor changes made. One of those dudes got Pop.yeachi.cn on an illegal auction, tuned it and uploaded it to file-exchanging portals all over the Web. And then, there was you, searching for it. Wait, you're saying that you didn’t look for a tool to irritate you? Possibly, you wanted the best messing-it-all-up program for the workstation, and somebody gave you a link to Pop.yeachi.cn installer? Still no? OK, then, you looked for some utility that is really good. Some free program from a not-so-famous company, or a hacked version of some paid program you're not going to purchase.

This way is called “bundled installation”, and it's based on that web-criminals are combining the installation files of 3-4 viruses and a sole helpful software to create one "bundle". The core feature of this installer is that they call it by the name of a helpful utility, and you don’t know its content before it's too late. On one of the middle steps, you see a suggestion to install other viruses, with the required checkmarks placed and the natural turn is to get them and proceed. And you pressed that button. Don't forget about another manner, with the “manners of installation”. Usually, the advanced installation method is simply a pick of a directory for a program to be established, and how many additional programs do you want. In Pop.yeachi.cn's case, if you clicked the easy installation, you admit all the trash from the viral installer into your machine.
