What is Cache Killer. Removal reasons and methods

Cache Killer is an advertising tool that was developed to bring money for web-criminals and terrible browsing experience - to other users. There are many ways for this tool to penetrate the PC, but the best of them is affiliate installation. This method is so perfect because web-criminals don't have to risk. Users willingly download adware and become acquainted with all its functions. To make things work, web-criminals upload the malware bundle on few most popular file sharing services. Now we will describe how it works. Firstly, swindlers are searching for a nice program to create a bundle and use its name. This tool needs to be useful and free of charge. It could just be a hacked version of the paid tool. Hackers append 3-4 viruses to the package and make that the resulting file can’t be viewed. The only possible action is the installation. In this way web-criminals trick the user, forcing him to install undesired programs, while he believes he's getting good software. Above was the answer why adware victims don't remember installing it and are amazed that this program is installed on their machines.

Did you see advertisement? Surely you did, since advertising allows website owners to keep on creating free content, but what were these ads? Did they pop up few times in a minute, closing the whole screen or the important elements of the website which you're now viewing? Do they lead you to online-casinos, porn sites, unwanted sites that propose you plenty of jitney goods, MLM sites or any other suchlike pages? If any of these issues is familiar to you, it will be wise to scan the PC for advertising programs. If you read our item you'll know more about adware and the techniques to protect the machine from it.



Many users are interested in the answer to the question: are advertising tools really gainful for hackers and how they work? It's pretty easy to answer this question: scammers receive a pure benefit for each banner shown to the victim. Every time you follow the links on the ads provided by browser hijacker, you increase the view count of the advertised pages, and make clicks and views, by whose quantity ads are paid for. Fraudsters often put ads in the spots where you are used to click, like the search strings, to receive more accidental referrals and clicks.

The first thing that Cache Killer does is the alteration of some system and browser settings. The alterations are being applied to security settings such as warnings about harmful content of the webpage. Also, adware often alters the default search provider and new tab addresses to dangerous website. The final turn is to append extra entries to the registry. Except the registry alterations, malware often alters the properties of browser shortcuts, so the harmful website appears each time when you start the browser. These all are the phases of preparation for work. If they're finished Cache Killer is ready to action. Now you understand that none of the hijacker's functions is intended to assist the user in any way. All advertising programs are aimed at accomplishing one task: generating lots of advertisement and, as a result, increase the amount of money that scammers will get.
