How to remove (uninstall) KITTY.EXE

The program that we’re about to tell you is known as KITTY.EXE. If KITTY.EXE isn't installed on your PC – you have to be aware of it, and if you’ve already installed it – you should eliminate it now. We are saying this because this program not only brings troubles during web-surfing, but may summon a serious malware infection of your machine. Have you noticed the high amount of advertisement in browser, or the shifted start page? Maybe you’ve faced the overall slowdown of system’s and browsing speed, or fake results of search and frequent redirections to the untrusted web-pages? The signs that are described above are saying one thing: the PC is infected with some sort of advertising tool, and this software must be deleted.

Every program has its own task, and this adware is no exception. Unfortunately, the true purpose of this program does not match with the stated ones. Typically, the description of adware states that it will be extremely useful. 95% of adware declare to support you to search for anything in the Internet. Observing the activity of friends in Twitter, search for sales, discounts and deals online and assistance in the search for new music, games or movies - these are the most prevalent functions of adware. It might look really nice, but if you think about it, you understand that all options that are declared have long been present in the default feature set of all browsers or social networks. In fact, the goal of adware developers is to declare that their software performs a function that can't be checked. The "better", "safer" or "faster" search on the Internet is a excellent example of suchlike functions, since these parameters are very blurry and nearly impossible to supervise. So, advertising software do not do anything, and just take up space on your hard drive? No, they have one significant task and it is to trick the users and to make money on ads.

There is an opinion in the Web that almost all viruses are created just "for fun". It's pretty reasonable, right? Web-scammer thinks about an operator which is trying to delete his virus right now, and the feeling is really good! It's a joke, of course. There are no useless malware. It is difficult to understand why adware shows so much pop-ups, but since you get it, it looks pretty simple. All this advertisement is generated to make money from referrals. Simply said, defrayal of advertising services is made according to the quantity of clicks made on the advertisement, or the amount of referrals from pop-up to the website. All adware's actions are aimed at convincing you pass the link. Yet if user is not interested in any of the propositions - you might click on the link, in order to close an uncomfortable intrusive banner. Advertisers don't care how the clicks were made, and hackers will obtain their payment both for the normal referral and for the random one. Here we see that quantity beats quality, as hackers create hundreds of trashy advertising programs that flood us with intrusive ads. Trustful operator can think that suchlike advertisement is good, and search for something interesting among these proposals, doing tens of referrals daily. Based on our information, the number of victims of KITTY.EXE is counted on tens of thousands of customers, and if each of them is doing 10-20 clicks daily, the hacker's earnings don't seem so low.
