If you already faced browser hijacker or adware - you might just go to the removal guide and eliminate Kitty.dll. If you haven't experienced suchlike software earlier - believe, this tool surely isn't the one to keep in your system. We say this because Kitty.dll not only calls troubles during web-surfing, but may cause a dangerous adware infection of your computer. Do you notice the huge quantity of advertisement on all websites, or the change of homepage? Maybe you’ve suffered of the full retardation of system’s and browser speed, or strange results of search and continuous redirections to the suspicious web-sites?

What is Kitty.dll

The advertising tools aren't made for fun, and each virus has exact goals to achieve. However, the true task of Kitty.dll differs from those declared. Typically, the description of adware promises that it is highly useful. 90% of adware state to help in web-browsing. Help in the download of latest games, music or movies, performing some functions in social networks and search for deals, sales and discounts in the Web - that's the most common functions of advertising programs. The first thing you need to do when you're going to download any program - to take thought, is it really helpful? In fact, the goal of virus developers is to state that their software performs a function which is impossible to monitor. The "faster", "better" or "safer" web-surfing is an excellent example of suchlike functions, because these options are really vague and almost impossible to supervise. So, adware do not do anything, and is just consuming space on your hard drive? Not at all! They perform a very significant task, - to let online criminals to obtain from $1000 to $5000 per day on gullible users.

 

There is a perception in the Web that most of viruses have no particular aim. It's pretty reasonable, right? Malware developer thinks about a user that is trying to remove his virus, and the feeling is really good! This was a joke, of course. There are no useless viruses. It is weird that adware displays so many ads, but when you get it, it appears really simple. All these ads are displayed to obtain money from referrals. Simply stated, advertising services are paid according to the number of clicks made on the advertisement, or the quantity of referrals from link to the site. All advertising software's efforts are targeted at making you click on the link. Even if you are not interested in hacker's proposals - the click may still be made, at least in order to hide an inconvenient irritating ad. The system doesn't care in which way the clicks were made, and swindlers will get their payment both for the normal click and for the random one. Here we see how quantity defeats quality, as scammers develop a lot of low quality advertising tools that flood us with hype. Gullible operator can think that this advertisement is good, and search for something worthwhile among these offers, doing hundreds of referrals daily. Based on our information, the number of systems, infected by Kitty.dll is at least 20 000, and if all of them are doing five to ten referrals daily, the swindler's income don't seem so insignificant.

Adware aims to change three items: home page, the filtering of intrusive advertising and default search engine. These changes tangle with the primary rules of computer security, and make the browser extremely assailable to all sorts of threats. Depending on man's performance on the Internet, the machine can be heavily clogged in a 4-5 weeks, and suddenly appear so slow that it is nearly impossible to do anything. There is only one method to stop ads and shield your machine from viral danger - to uninstall Kitty.dll.

We know two principal ways of advertising tool spread: the placement on the infected websites and installation in bundles with good programs. The "website" way may be simply avoided: you should visit only those web-sites which are totally dependable, and appear on the first pages in the search results. Also, remember to listen to the warnings of your antivirus program and browser. To shield your PC from the infection through the second technique, you must closely supervise the installation of each software. Bundled installation method is based on user's credulity and the harmful habit to click OK before you know what you are agreeing with. You install some program and in one of the windows during the process appears a suggestion to install some more tools. All fields are already checked, and by clicking "OK" he gets at 4-5 tools in addition to the wanted one. Naturally, all programs except the desired one will be pointless or even hazardous. So, when you see the option between “safe install” and “partial installation” – pick the second option. Then you will be able to choose what software you are going to install and which you do not.
