What is Pimmuter. Removal reasons and methods

Pimmuter is adware created to show you links and assure you of their sustainability. It's small, irritating and nearly inoffensive. If your laptop has Pimmuter and nothing except it – the OS might live a long time, but it will never turn out like that, as adware always invites its friends to every kick-up. Mind us, there will be a kick-up, with blackjack and adware. Pimmuter makes the laptop vulnerable to incoming dangers, as it can constipate it with useless tools very fast. In most cases, there will be other advertising programs or plain malware, but you might get ransomware too, and, well, you'd better not to. This virus is a yawning breach in your computer's security, and you'd better close it as soon as possible.



There are different types of advertising tools, and they employ various strategies of infection. They're all known to us, but some techniques are too poor to include them on this list. If you want to learn how to cope with the worst ones, here they are:


  • Affiliate installation, also known as "bundling" is the easiest technique for advertising program to penetrate customer's PC. It’s pretty simple to arrange, and its very helpful characteristic (from swindlers’ point of view) is that user performs the entire process with his own hands. They only need to make a bundle where several examples of adware are combined with a single relatively useful unpaid program. A customer wants that utility, so he downloads the bundle, installs its content and gets the whole lot of hazardous junk that’s in it. To evade this, you'd better read cautiously all windows with checkboxes. You'd better not click "agree" without thinking, because it calls serious issues.
  • Download through developers’ web page. This one is not as popular as bundling, and commonly, it’s working when a virus is uploaded to some more or less popular portal. For one, some dude wants his website on top of search results and makes an application that notifies you of some interesting changes, new giveaways, and other stuff. The problem with such tools is that sooner or later it will begin showing you sponsored links with irritating frequency. Fortunately, suchlike programs could be deleted easily, and they will never return.
  • Download from an infected site or from a special link. This is more about real Trojans, but Pimmuter uses this technique in rare cases. We're sure that you have experienced it at least once. You attend a website, and there is a banner, suggesting you to get a miraculous utility which is able to boost your web-surfing experience. Does it feel familiar? You pass on an ad and see a garish strangely-looking site, telling you that well-known search utilities are useless and tricky, yet Pimmuter program is different. It’s straight, protected, and will not sell your private information to major companies. And that’s how it is, as it will dump them to much smaller corporations and bands of fraudsters, which will put it to use. These ones are also simple to avoid: just ignore pop-ups. It doesn't matter how they look like – just don’t. Ignore all invitations which came from unknown sources, and your system will stay safe and fast.


We have no doubts that adware penetrated your device through one of those techniques, and after reading the above section you're able to defend the workstation from them. Let's just eliminate Pimmuter.
