Internet Explorer is not so popular now, as it was 10-15 years ago, but is still liked by millions of users, and hackers are developing the advertising programs that infect IE as well as other browsers. There are many signs of infection, but the most obvious of them are: the abundance of ads, sudden redirections to unknown websites, new strange applications and toolbars in the browser, change of homepage and default search engine. Also, adware developers are very proud of what they did, so almost each ad, provided by their programs is marked. These marks are “powered by X” or “ads by X”, where “X” is the name of adware. If you mentioned one of the signs which are written above – you have an adware in your browser and you should remove it as quick as possible. Below this paragraph you will find the detailed step-by-step instructions on the deletion of unwanted, advertising and harmful applications from your browser.

There are many articles with the TOP-10, TOP-50 and TOP-100 of anti-malware tools, so you can pick any one that you’ll like, but in our humble opinion, it will be better to use MBAM (MalwareBytes Anti Malware) or AdwCleaner.
