We can tell you the manners to delete Bitballoon.com adware once and for all, and guard the machine from re-infection.

Bitballoon.com

Let us make it clear: Bitballoon.com is an advertising program. It doesn't mean much, as ads from Bitballoon.com have nothing to do with the normal advertisement, and the utility itself is nothing more than a script, capable of carrying out few actions, mandatory for pop-ups to be displayed to you. In this guide, we’ll explain to you, in which manner Bitballoon.com infects the laptop, how it works and how to beat it. The elimination guide can be found below the main part, so if you know everything we’re going to tell – simply ignore it and go to the removal.

What is Bitballoon.com

Bitballoon.com advertising program is the newest version of adware, but the most of the updates performed through its lifetime were simply esthetic. Adware doesn’t need to be in progress, since it doesn’t depend on some sophisticated tech solutions in its job – it counts on user. Adware is one of the plainest, yet the most gainful suspicious programs, which help swindlers to receive their revenue without being accused of anything. Naturally, it’s not okay for you: some utility sneaks into the PC, turns it slow, invites a lot of other useless programs into it, and shoves the major package of banners down your throat. In most cases, customers have many things to say about Bitballoon.com, but the truth is simple: you call the thing to get into the PC. We will talk about it in the coming parts, and now – let’s explain what advertising utility does in the system.

As we’ve said before, Bitballoon.com's not a virus, as it can’t duplicate itself and distribute itself through the Web and through the minor networks. It requires potential victim to download it, and when it happens – Bitballoon.com needs customer to install it. When you install Bitballoon.com you will have to acknowledge that you have read EULA, in which all methods of adware's work are openly explained. Naturally, users not often look for adware specifically. Bundled installation is the most preferred manner, and we will explain what it is in the next section. In rare cases victim isn't responsible for undesired tool infecting the PC, as Trojan virus carried out everything without telling user about it. But to do that, someone had to invite Trojan onto the PC too.

 

How Bitballoon.com gets into the system

Affiliate download is the easiest, fastest and very productive way to distribute any utility through the Web. Fraudsters just choose several tool, of which only one is good and all the others aren’t, and unite them in a single package. While you are installing a good tool, you’ll get a suggestion to install the malicious ones too. At times you can reject it, sometimes you can’t, but most times users just do not see it as they are clicking their way to install the bundle without inspecting the words that are written in all those stupid windows. Now you understand why we've said that you’ve called adware into your system.

How to protect the system

In this section we'll explain to you the ways to protect the OS from Trojans, pop-ups, viruses and the majority of other dangerous programs. It's not easy. The technique includes some behavioral patterns and habits you should exercise, but it's not too bad and you will get accustomed to it. Here’s what we have to say:

  • You have to realize that lots of websites aren't reliable. Fraudsters easily can assure you that your PC is infected, by taking over an open tab and forcing you to accept an installation of any other utility. If the website's not responding – simply abort your browser via Task Manager, and you’ll be alright. No website is capable of scanning your system for viruses within fifteen seconds and find out whether or not it is infected.
  • You have to cease clicking. That is the habit we advise you to develop: you're searching for something – get it from Google. If advertisement emerges on any webpage or in the browser, you'd better abstain from clicking on it. If someone recommends you to install a program and states that it’s useful – use the search to realize what it is. The better results come when you add "delete".
  • Our first advice to defend the workstation is to not to use cracked utilities. If an utility is toll-free and you’re certain that it can be trusted – just find the vendor’s site, and there won't be any problems. For cracked utility – there won't be official sites – just suspicious file-sharing portals. You won’t find good security on those sites, and every file could be infected.
  • Another crucial thing is that, you should inspect the info that is displayed through the installation of any free utility. Let’s rephrase it: you don’t need to the full EULA, but you have to avoid suggestions to install any software besides the desired program. If you see these proposals – you’d better watch out.
