What is KingMiner

KingMiner is the newest program in its category, but the vast majority of the updates invented through last time were only cosmetic. Adware doesn’t need to be in progress, as it's not counting upon the intricate tech solutions in its work – it counts on its victim. Adware is one of the least complex, but the most paying dangerous tools, helping fraudsters to earn without violating any laws.

You might have many excuses, but the facts are simple: KingMiner had infected the computer with your validation. We're going to get to it in the following paragraphs, and now – let’s figure out what KingMiner does in the system.

We've already said that KingMiner's not a virus, as it cannot create its copies and automatically spread through the Internet. It requires to be downloaded, and if it happens – KingMiner has customer to install it. The installation process includes confirmation of EULA, where all functions of adware are openly stated.

During the installation of a useful tool, you’ll receive a suggestion to install the dangerous utilities too. On occasion you can call it off, at times you can’t, but most times users just don’t notice it as they’re okaying through to installation without bothering to inspect the information in all those irritating windows. Now you see why we've stated that you have called adware into your OS.

How to protect the system

In this paragraph we will teach you the techniques to protect the PC from suspicious ads, Trojans, malware and the majority of other malicious tools. It's not a joke. The way includes a few habits and patterns you need to follow, but there’s nice news too: you’ll become accustomed to it. Here’s our advice:

  • You'd better remember that many sites are not reliable. Fraudsters want to assure you that the laptop is infested, by taking over your browser and making you confirm an installation of the tool they want you to install. If the webpage's seems to be lagging – just close its process via Process Manager, and you’ll be fine. No webpage is capable of scanning your system for undesired programs within a couple seconds and tell if it’s infected or not.
  • And, of course,, you should read all info that is shown while you are installing any toll-free tool. We'd put it like this: you don’t have to read all 40 pages of License Agreement, but you should ignore suggestions to install any software besides the utility that you've wanted. If you see such offers – you’d better act carefully.
  • Our first and foremost hint to shield the machine will be to cease using pirated utilities. If an utility is free and you are sure that it’s reliable – just get it from the vendor’s webpage, and you won’t get any problems. In case of a pirated tool – they can only be seen on torrent trackers. These sites don't care about protection, and any file might be infected.
  • You should forget about clicking. This is the habit we advise you to develop: you're searching for information – get it from the good search engine. If a banner pops up on some site or in your OS, you need to resist from clicking on it. If you get the proposal to download a program and states that it’s useful – google its name. To find it out faster - type the word "eliminate".
