How to remove (uninstall)

Advertising on the Internet started getting on your nerves? Can you not visit your favorite website without making a few clicks on suspicious ads and closing a few new tabs? This entry will help you to change the situation completely. We will explain how to deal with adware and how you can protect the system from it. We’re also providing the helpful instructions on browser clearing.

Adware is like a box of chocolates: you never know from where you’ll get it. It might be your favorite torrent, some new browser game, a link, sent you by your friend who recently had some strange activity on Skype and social networks, etc. There are many ways, but results are always the same: your PC is clogged with useless programs, and it’s only getting worse every day. You can’t clean it without reinstalling Windows, but there are so many important files on the PC, so you just don’t want to lose them. You have no outer hard drive to store them while you’re reinstalling the OS, so you just wait and hope that someday it will just go away. Cool story, huh? That’s how most of users think, while adware is taking over their computers, and scammers are getting their revenue from them. If you don’t want to be like them – it’s time to clear the system from suchlike programs and stop letting the other ones in!


What is infection

You already know that is no good, and you have to get rid of it. We’ll get to it, but first, you have to learn how it got into the system. Usually, adware infects the computers via the bundled installation. This method is quite simple, and the most efficient among all the others for the last twenty years. Its principles are pretty plain: scammers want you to do everything for them, including the infection of your own computer so that they could earn from your clicks. It might sound weird, but scammers fully rely on their victims’ credulity, and it never fails. Here’s how it works:

  • Firstly, scammers create an adware bundle. It’s a package of installation files that consists of one relatively useful tool (user thinks that he’s downloading it and nothing except it) and a few viruses, advertising tools, browser toolbars, etc.
  • The bundle is being uploaded to as many file-sharing sites as possible, to ensure that it will be available to everyone. After this stage, the scammers’ job is done, and they just wait until victims start downloading the bundle and installing viruses.
  • When the bundle is downloaded, the user gets a dialogue window in which he has to choose between a recommended installation and another way. It’s usually called advanced, partial, for experienced users, non-recommended, etc. The second method is usually described as something you don’t want to do or something that might easily go wrong, while it’s just the way to pick what you want to install and erase everything else. In most cases, users don’t even mention the window and click “OK.” That’s how got into your system.


How to protect the system

There is a few ways to ensure your PC’s protection and one the best them is to behave wisely on the Internet. Yes, we won’t tell you that an antivirus can solve all your problems. AV tools are great, but you just can’t rely on them fully and have to change the way you’re surfing the web. Firstly – you don’t have to click on each link that you’ve received. Even a simple click might start a download of dangerous programs if your browser settings aren’t set to default. If you see a suspicious ad – close it or ignore it. Pop-up windows are even more dangerous. If you see a suggestion to install something, coming in the form of a pop-up window – don’t click on it. It might say that your PC is infected, your data is in danger, your bank accounts are stolen or whatever – it’s all a lie.

To protect the system from viruses we recommend you to use the paid content. Yes, it’s painful, and most users don’t want to pay for anything, but you can just compare the cost of the time that you spend on system cleaning and the cost of any content. You’ll see that it’s a good deal. By purchasing software or media files from trusted vendors, you’re making them responsible for all failures and unexpected situations. You’ll get help from their support service in case if anything goes wrong, and get refunded.

The last advice is about reading. You have to read EULA. Usually, it’s a waste of time, but you might make your life easier if you will spot some suspicious clause in license agreement before installing a virus and not afterward.
