Beam-Search.com

Ads on the Web have gone aggressive in latter years, and users are starting to think it's okay. Banner ads are all over the Net – it doesn't matter what is the site you're visiting - ads are there. Some time ago, you've mentioned a few promotional banners each day, and now you see that much every minute. Advertisers did, after all get that the Internet is the plentiful source to engage fresh users, and swindlers thought about that also. They make questionable tools to get into the computer so that it will display to you suspicious, irrelevant ads. One of these utilities easily took over your computer, and it's called Beam-Search.com. Ads by Beam-Search.com aren’t about selling anything – they are just for you to click on them. If you click on suchlike banner, you’ll end up on a useless website, offering cheap goods to you. In most cases, there is nothing at all, except for a suggestion to install some gratis tool, which will screw up your computer and show more pop-ups to you. If you've had enough of it – on this site you’ll discover all info you need to remove it.

What is Beam-Search.com

 

We're talking about an adware, created for a sole task: to show you advertisement. We can't even call it a program, since it is a plain script, able to alter your browser options and letting customers use it in swindlers favor. For you to see its way of working, we’ll point out its doings one step at a time:

  • The most crucial thing that advertising utility does after it breaks onto the laptop is taking control over the browser. It places the hackers' infected search on your default search's place, and same thing happens with the homepage. After that you never get true results for your queries – Beam-Search.com will show you just the things that hackers want you to see or to click.
  • Beam-Search.com gets uploaded to a cheap website, along with other useless utilities. It simply waits for a victim to find it – a user who isn't bothering to read anything and skips everything any time he (or she) can. Naturally, the customer doesn't think he's installing Beam-Search.com advertising tool – there is a free tool in a package. It's the one that customers want, but downloading it, they get a lot of useless stuff on top.
  • The main adware’s goal is fulfilled after it switches the settings of the browser, and after that, it only needs to develop the protection mechanisms. It adds new lines into the system registry and creates scheduled tasks to not let you change browser settings.
  • When some customer finds adware and tries to install it, a menu shows up, suggesting two installation ways. The #1 is already selected, and sometimes you can’t choose the second one, as it’s unreachable. By choosing the suggested method you allow to install every single dangerous utility from the package, and the "hard" option lets you decide which utilities you wish to use and which ones you don’t.
  • If you have clicked the "hard" method and declined the installation of Beam-Search.com – you wouldn’t be on this page. Based on this, we suppose that you haven't noticed that box. It means that the installation proceeded and Beam-Search.com began functioning.

That’s what adware gets into the computer. Since the stage #5, Beam-Search.com is completely needless, as all main work, meaning the display of banners, is performed by scammers' webpage. It looks familiar, as if it was your favorite search engine, but the links that you get there are very suspicious. Swindlers take advantage of a free service, called Google Custom Search Engine to put their fake search to work, and its main feature is to narrow the search area to a few webpages. Hackers use this service to display you fraud search results and make you think that they are real.

How to protect the system

One thing you have to know about computer’s safety from Beam-Search.com and other suchlike tools – it requires effort. Undoubtedly, the antivirus will help a lot, yet you still should do, or rather not to do many things. We want to specify these things below.

  • You better don't install unpaid software, and if you need to install it anyway – download it from an official website.
  • There is no possible matter to deactivate the antivirus. Particularly if a suspicious website suggests you to do it.
  • Don’t click on unwanted ads, and do not go to low-quality webpages. By that we mean sites that offer counterfeit tools and media content, adult content, and other similar stuff.
  • Update your software on time, particularly, your operating system and your browser. The security holes that viruses use to infect the PC are being fixed, so the latter patch you use - the safer your system is.

The list above will assist you to ward off advertising tools and most of the other harmful programs. Still, certain examples of malware may sneak into the system via other methods, and you'd better get a first-class antivirus to remove them.
