We're sure that wants to arrange a party, with blackjack and adware. The virus exposes the workstation to outer hazards, as it can litter it by useless programs very fast.

We know different variations of advertising programs, and they might penetrate the computer in various ways. We know all of them, but many methods just aren’t efficient enough to add them to our list. If you wish to know how to deal with the worst ones, we've got them all:


  • Bundled installation, also known as "bundling" is the fastest method for to penetrate user's workstation. It’s pretty easy to set up, and its best aspect (for hackers, of course) is that user performs the entire process with his own hands. They only need to make an adware package with three or four advertising programs are combined with a program that people would like to install. A user likes that tool, so he gets the package, installs its content and gets every single piece of pointless crap from it. To avoid suchlike issue, we advise you to read carefully each window where they want you to place checkmarks. Don’t click "agree" without thinking, because it causes many issues.
  • Infection through developers’ website. This one is not as popular as bundling, and usually, it’s working when an advertising utility comes from the more or less well-liked portal. Say, some dude wishes his web page on top of search results and develops a tool that reminds you of updates, new content, and other stuff. The issue with such apps is that sooner or later you’ll start receiving advertising links with irritating frequency. Fortunately, these tools could be removed easily, and they will never return.
  • Infection from swindler' web page or from a direct link. This is more about serious malware, but uses such technique in rare cases. We'd bet you’ve encountered it at least once. While you are on a website, you see a pop-up, offering you to get a super-mega useful tool to enhance your web-surfing experience. You've seen it all before, huh? You pass the link and see a bright modern web page, convincing you that popular search tools are evil, yet THIS utility is not like them. It’s fair, protected, and will not transfer your personal information to big corporate organizations. And it really is so, as it will pass them to small and humble organizations and parties of fraudsters, who know how to use it. These utilities are also easy to avoid: don’t click on pop-ups. No matter how they look like – don't click at all. Decline all invitations which came from unknown sites, and the computer will be clean and swift.


We’re sure that the virus infected your machine via one of those techniques, and now you know how to secure the system against them. Let's just delete the virus.
