Search for deals, discounts and sales online, performing some functions in social networks and assistance in the download of new music, movies or games - these are the functions that 95% of adware declare to carry out. It might seem very useful, but if you think about it, you understand that all options that are declared have long been imbued in the default functionality of all browsers or social networks. Actually, the goal of adware creators is to state that their product performs a function that is impossible to monitor. The "safer", "better" or "faster" search on the Internet is a brilliant example of suchlike feature, since these options are really vague and they're very to trace.

Actually, there is another feature of Antanna that in the long perspective may call significant damage to your machine. We speak about that Antanna can change browser controls on purpose to distribute advertising more effective which makes it very vulnerable to all kinds of malware. Antanna modifies the address of the homepage and the pre search engine, and also blocks options that are reliable for filtration of ads and for denying of dangerous downloads. So, if adware is in the system, the browser is highly assailable, and different unwanted programs might use it to enter the system, which exactly happens if customer starts to randomly click on hazardous links given by Antanna. According to the user's practice in the Web, the system can be fully infected in a half of a month, and suddenly become so slow that it is almost impossible to do anything. You have only one method to stop advertising and shield your machine from viral danger - to uninstall Antanna.

Method 2. Remove Antanna manually

Step 2. Remove Antanna from the browser (Google Chrome/Mozilla Firefox/IE/Opera/Safari)

 

There are two primary ways of adware distribution: the placement on the infected web-sites and bundled installation with free software. The "website" technique might be simply avoided: you should visit only those websites which are considered trustworthy, and are on the first positions in browser. Except that, the browser and anti-viral tool will show you notification, if the website is suspicious. To shield yourself from the penetration through the bundled installation method, you should carefully observe the installation of any software. This method is so effective because of user's trustfulness and the bad habit to click OK before you know what you are agreeing with. The installer is modified to offer you to get extra tools except the one that you need. All boxes are already checked, and by clicking "OK" he installs at 2-3 programs instead of one. Of course, all software except the wanted one will be trashy or even perilous. According to this, if you see the choice among “recommended installation” and “installation for expert users” – pick the second variant. Doing this you will be able to choose which software you want to install and what you don’t.
