What is JETMEDIA\CHECKER.EXE. Removal reasons and methods

Have you experienced the irritating pop-ups on your favourite websites? Certainly you did, since advertisement allows website owners to continue to produce high quality content, but were these ads acceptable? Were they appearing few times in a minute, covering the whole screen or the important elements of the site which you're now viewing? Do they lead you to porn sites, MLM websites, online-casinos, undesired sites where you can buy plenty of substandard goods or any other pages of this kind? If the answer on all these questions is "yes", there is a high probability that there's an advertising tool on your machine. If you read this item you'll know a lot about adware in general and Jetmedia in particular.

JETMEDIA\CHECKER.EXE is a part of Native Desktop Media Service - an advertisement program that was created to bring money to web-scammers and inconvenience - to other users. If you see in the Task manager CHECKER.EXE process - it means that you was infected by adware. Virus can penetrate the computer through bundled installation scheme, or you installe it on your own. This method is so perfect because swindlers don't even risk anything. Users gladly download unwanted software and become acquainted with all its functions. To launch the scheme, scammers need to upload the adware bundle on few most visited file sharing services. Now we will describe how it works. To begin with, hackers have to find a good program to create a bundle and name it by its name. This software has to be effective and free of charge. It might also be a cracked version of the licensed tool. Hackers add few advertising utilities to the bundle in such a way that the resultant file cannot be revised. The only possible action is the installation. In this way hackers trick the user, compelling him to download adware, while he believes he is getting useful software. This was the answer why adware victims don't remember installing it and are surprised that this utility exists on their PCs.



The first thing that virus performs is the alteration of some browser and system settings. Such changes generally affect pop-up windows and warnings when downloading files. After that malware switches the search engine and home page, substituting the default websites with the address of hacker's webpage. The finishing stroke is the addition of dangerous strings to the registry. Thanks to these measures, adware shields itself from removal, and continues to display advertising even if man switches the browser settings. The doings, described above are the stages of run-up to work. When they're executed "virus" is ready to action. We've told you earlier but now it can be seen clearly that virus initially was a useless tool. The only thing scammers care about is money, so adware will generate ads until you clean your browser from the redirects.

Most of users want to know the answer to single question: what is the purpose of the functioning of JETMEDIA\CHECKER.EXE, and why scammers create hundreds of suchlike tools every month? The purpose of adware's work is money, and fraudsters get plenty of them from every infected machine. Any form of advertising receives payment for the amount of clicks that it received, so the way is simple: many machines - more clicks - more money. Adware developers frequently put banners in the spots where users are used to click, for example, the navigation keys, to receive more incidental referrals and clicks.


It is obvious now that undesired software won't stop before you uninstall it from your machine. Removing adware is an important objective which needs extra attention and certain skills. If you choose to eliminate virus manually, you'll need to switch the browser settings, revoke the pending tasks for reinstallation of adware, restore the properties of browser shortcuts, delete unwanted program from the system and clear the registry. For average PC operator, some operations from this list could look too complex therefore we've designed a complete instruction. Since we can't control the process, we advise you to backup the system before proceeding with the deletion.
