We say so since this undesired program not only provides troubles during web-surfing, but can induce a serious adware infection of your machine. Do you notice the huge quantity of advertisement in browser, or the shifted start page? How do you think, is it normal that the default search system is switched to the unknown website, and it opens each time when you start the browser?

The first thing you have to do if you want to download any software - to think, is it really helpful? By the way, the task of malware developers is to convince the user that their adware performs something which can't be checked. The "better", "faster" or "safer" web-surfing is a excellent example of suchlike feature, as these parameters are really blurry and nearly impossible to observe. Does this mean that adware do not do anything, and just take up space in the computer's memory? Of course not!! Adware performs a very substantial function, - to let online fraudsters to earn thousands of dollars per day on unsuspecting users.

It's hard to realize where it came from but today there is an opinion that hackers create the viruses without any logical reason.

All these ads are shown to make money from referrals. Many people heard that advertisement in the Web is paid on the pay-per-click system. It means that the customer pays for every referral from the pop-up to the website. So, the more ads advertising program shows you, the better is the chance that you will be interested and click on the link. Even if you don't take interest in hacker's proposals - the click may still be done, at least in order to hide an unwanted intrusive ad. Advertisers don't care in which way the click was done, and online-criminals will get their reward both for the true referral and for the unwanted one. Here we see that quantity overcomes quality, as scammers create lots of substandard programs that flood us with hype. Trustful customer can think that suchlike advertisement is trustworthy, and try to find something fine among these propositions, making dozens of referrals daily. According to our data, the number of victims of Scgeneric4.bpwa Trojan is at least 20 000, and if each of them is making five to ten referrals daily, the swindler's income no longer seems so low.
