ProxyGate is a malware. These tools differ from usual viruses in that their doing can’t be determined as certainly harmful. ProxyGate can appear as a reputable add-on that tells you about the best deals on the Web, embeds remarkable features to all browsers, and does other things. If ProxyGate will work on your computer for 5-7 days or more you will realize, that it is not truly good, and will attempt to eliminate it. But, ProxyGate can recover itself past the disposal. How to deal with ProxyGate? What is ProxyGate? How ProxyGate penetrated your workstation? In this entry we'll answer these questions, and give you the complete information about ProxyGate.


The undesired programs which show you banners and interfere to surf the Net can be separated on two kinds: adware and hijackers. The first kind attacks the entire machine, placing hype and ads on each website and on the desktop. The group № 2 acts exactly in the browsers by manipulating the results of your searches, providing fake output and sending you to infected web-pages. Both types of programs have tricky lists of the options and benefits to make you think that they are good. However, the longer these programs will dwell in your system the worse will be the condition of your workstation. In the end, you will see that your workstation is totally clogged by all kinds of strange, suspicious or even harmful programs. Spontaneous shutdowns, the poor performance of the laptop, restarts, low response speed and critical failures will become very frequent. It will be helpful for your laptop, if you uninstall the harmful program before the PC will appear in such pitiful condition.

After the infection virus commits a series of actions, to shield itself against disposal, and get ready for action. The first thing is to set a task to recover in case of uninstalling, and to obtain updates from the developer's website. After that, adware starts to change the settings of browsers. When the default search engine and the homepage are modified, you'll always see the suspicious web-site in all browsers and on every tab. After that, ProxyGate alters your browser controls, related to advertisement. The browsers nowadays have a service which hides the pop-ups, unwanted ads, banners and other types of hype. Hijacker deactivates these functions, and you understand that the quantity of ads in all browsers is dramatically increased. Moreover that adware forces you to see all the ads of the Internet, doesn't matter are they worthy or not, it exhibits you its own hype. Sometimes, users just can’t browse the Net, because when they try to visit the specified web-page, harmful software sends him to the unwanted one. Why ProxyGate does this? All struggles of adware are serving the one purpose: to force the user to make a click. These links frequently lead to third-class web-pages offering substandard products, or services. These web-sites are simply not visited by anybody except their developers, and the only way out for them is to drag visitors to the website with use of deception. Any attempt to get something from this website will cause great problems. As you already understood, ProxyGate don't cause harm on its own, and it only allows the user to do things that will summon issues.

How to protect the computer?

There is one significant thing that you have to know about computer virus: how not to let it enter the PC. This occurs through three basic techniques:

  • Download from a suspicious site. Some web-pages spread the adware and they don't even try to hide it. Such tools have the limited list of features: automated installation of any update or driver for your gear, showing the newest unpaid media-content such as games, movies and music, the acceleration of Web surfing, search for best deals on the Internet, the realization of definite tasks in Twitter. If on some web-site you see a suggestion to install the tool with such functions - it is absolutely malicious, and the site itself is unreliable.
  • Adware might be attached to good software. If you have ever installed the free software, you know what we are talking about. You download the tool, and during the installation there is a pop-up with the proposal to install the miraculous file manager, browser, the new add-on for it, AV-software, and God knows what else. There's no need to decide anything because the all fields are already filled, and in some cases, it will be really difficult to decline the unwanted installations.
  • Sometimes user downloads viruses by his own will. Smart composed description of the software and its marvelous (and nonexistent) functions misinforms the user, and he installs adware.

The e-mails are also often used, to spread malware but the hijackers almost don't use it. We hope that when you're reading this part of the article, ProxyGate will be fully uninstalled from the laptop. If you prefer the removal in manual manner, you must know how to determine that your PC has a virus.

  • OS boots really slowly. The tools that turn on at startup are, most often, the reason of slow boot. At the taskbar you will see all currently launched tools, and choose which are good and which are not.
  • Appearance of advertising in all tabs. If the amount of advertisement increased notably - this is, most likely, the undesired software.
  • Critical faults when using programs, restart or shutdown of a computer without the user's consent.
  • The appearance of the strange programs in the system. If the software appears in the system without your resolution - it's, most likely, undesired.

If you find one of the mentioned above symptoms on your computer - you have to do an overall scan with assistance of antivirus, or manually get rid of all the unwanted and malicious software from your PC. Don't trust in everything you see on the Net, watch at the status of your machine, and it will anytime be clean and functional.
