So, Current Me is a usual advertising tool, which cannot be called a really a real malware. These tools, most often, are developed massively and are duplicates of each other.

It will be better for people who found Current Me on their computers to immediately uninstall it through these instructions.



Viruses can infect victim's computer in a lot of ways, but certain programs prefer the certain techniques. For example, ransomware, in most cases prefers phishing, Trojans prefer the weak spots in software's code and advertising software creators prefer bundled installation. Bundling depends on an indirect deception of the user. Actually, the bundle comprises of one useful program and few suspicious programs. The programs in the package are installed at the same time, so if customer does not notice the pop-ups that emerge during the installation, he can lightly let them enter the system. One of these windows has a choice between two installation manners: advised and "for experienced users". The common technique is checked automatically, and if victim doesn't check the other one, he'll install all programs in the bundle. Here you will see few simple advices that might assist you avoid getting infected in this way:

  • Do not ignore the info that's displayed in the dialogue windows during the installation. Sometimes, you need to read EULA to understand that the software is perilous and just cancel its installation.
  • You mustn't attend hacked sites that distribute viruses. Swindlers can hack almost any website, but it's much easier to get on a low-quality site, specially created for illegal purposes, or a site, forgotten by the creator. Perilous webpages could be easily identified by bright design, clickbait headers, strange tabs that appear when clicking on a link and an abundance of obtrusive ads.
  • Do not downloading hacked versions of licensed tools. That's how fraudsters spread adware, using the ordinary user’s greed. If you want to download the unpaid software, then load it exclusively from the developer's website, or from another trusted site. By following this tip you decrease the number of sources of infection.

These advices written above are really simple, but if you'll follow them you will realize how much better your system will work and easy the web-browsing will become. Remember that before using these tips, you should do a full cleaning of your PC of unwanted programs that are already there. The next paragraph can help you to uninstall any viruses from the machine.
