There are three basic types of advertising utilities which spread through the Web nowadays: browser toolbars, redirects and adware. These programs were originally developed not to be useful, and their features are aimed only at getting money from advertising fraud. The majority of users mistakenly think that such programs are worthy, being tricked by massive rosters of their functions, but all these advantages either do not work, or do not exist at all. To make it clear for you, we will describe the main features of each type of advertising utilities.

  • Adware differs in that it shows ad units on all sites that the victim views and in some cases, on the desktop. These programs can be masked almost to anything: system optimizers, video and audio players, driver updaters, software for finding games and movies and even more. Ads emerge as links, distinct units in the browser or pop-ups.
  • Browser hijackers do not generate ads on well-known web-pages. Instead of ads they redirect the users to the infected web-pages. This software helps the foul website owners to generate traffic and decrease the defense level of victim's laptop.
  • Toolbars are less annoying than adware and hijackers, but except showing ads they also gather the information about victim's machine and about his activity on the Internet. This data may be used against its owner or passed to third parties for a solid price.

The mentioned software together and every one of them can be applied for various kinds of Internet-scam. These advertising utilities have one thing in common - they all cause problems for the user and prevent him from using the browser. By the way, according to that all these programs try to convince the man to click on links to weird and sometimes perilous sites, they allow other malware to penetrate the machine.

 

So, you know what goals are targeted by advertising programs and, it's time to understand how to detect adware and remove it. The biggest and the most important mark of penetration is the extremely high number of ads. Mark #2 is the appearance of extraneous tools in the system that you don't remember installing. Such things may happen if victim passes the link to direct loading of the dangerous file. Unwanted programs are acting imperceptibly so you cannot see that you just downloaded them.

The third sign is a noticeable retardation of the machine, and an growth in the boot time of the system. Lag of machine's speed isn't exclusively the result of harmful tools, but this happens really often. PC is slowing down because any adware is running endlessly and never stops. This means that adware is running at system boot and shutting down only with the whole machine. If 3-5 such programs will get into your PC, their simultaneous operation overloads the system, and demands so many resources that useful software simply can't perform its functions. This can induce fatal errors of various programs, trouble turn-offs and deceleration. If you see any of these signs - you should check the PC via reputable antivirus or remove all unwanted software in manual manner.
