How to remove (uninstall) DirAnalyze

DirAnalyze is a program that pretends to be useful but actually isn’t. It is a potentially unwanted program that claims to have functions of so-called “system optimizer”. System optimizers are tools that clear cache, remove the outdated registry strings, clear the recycle bin etc. These things could easily be done manually, but optimizers are able to perform them all at once, in few seconds. The decent optimizers can do this, but DirAnalyze is just an adware that shows you ads in browser and on the desktop.

What is DirAnalyze


Hackers don't make adware only to irritate users, and each virus has precise tasks. But, the true aim of DirAnalyze is different from those declared. Typically, the specification of adware declares that it is very useful. 95% of advertising programs state that they can support in web-browsing. Search for sales, deals and discounts on the Internet, assistance in the search for new movies, games or music and performing some functions in Facebook - these are the most prevalent features of advertising tools. The primary thing you should do when you want to download some software - to take thought, is it really helpful? How do you think, why are all adware descriptions so vague? The "faster", "better" or "safer" web-surfing is a brilliant example of suchlike functions, because these options are very vague and they're very to observe. According to this, adware are completely useless, and is just consuming space on your hard drive? No, it's not! These programs perform a highly substantial task, - to help Internet scammers to earn thousands of dollars a day on gullible users.


It's hard to understand where it came from but now some users think that web-scammers make the perilous programs with no logical reason. Dangerous programs retard your PC, interfere with the functions of good software, and web-criminals are so excited about it that they want to spend days, creating annoying viruses. Alright, I'm joking. The adware are always aimed for some goal, and even if you don't realize what it does - you will understand when it will be achieved. For example, the indiscriminate showing of suspicious advertising on every page isn't accidental. All these ads are generated to make money from clicks. Simply said, defrayal of advertising services is made according to the amount of clicks done on the ad, or the number of clicks from link to the web-page. All adware's actions are targeted at convincing you click on the ads. Yet if you don't take interest in hacker's propositions - you can click on the link, at least to close an unwanted intrusive banner. Advertisers don't want to know in which way the clicks were done, and hackers will get their reward both for the decent referral and for the random one. In this case we see how quantity beats quality, as hackers develop thousands of low quality programs that spam with hype. Trusting user can think that suchlike advertisement is good, and look for something worthwhile among adware proposals, doing dozens of referrals daily. Anti-viral developers and malware-fighting communities get tens of thousands of reports on DirAnalyze, so swindlers do pretty good money on it.

Advertising software is being distributed in several techniques: through viral websites where the undesired download may start at any click, and using the bundled installation. The first technique can be simply neutralized: you must only visit web-pages that are totally trustworthy, and appear on the first pages in the search results. In addition, listen to the warnings that your browser and antivirus show. To shield your PC from the infection through the second technique, you should attentively observe the installation of all programs. Bundled installation method is so effective because of user's credulity and the bad habit to press OK without reading. User installs some software and the pop-up window during installation emerges an offer to get some additional tools. In some variants you just cannot cancel the installation, and in some - there's no sign of additional software.

According to this, when you see the option among “safe installation” and “install for expert users” – pick the second option. Do this each time you install new software - and your computer will be noticeably cleaner.
