If you’re reading our entry, you probably have an issue with dangerous pop-ups. It's a frequent problem these days, because adware is getting extremely widespread, and they're stored even on the most decent websites. The thing is to realize how adware functions. We also know how adware gets into the device, and we'll teach how to prevent it. Veteran operators can tell you that it’s better to avoid adware than to deal with its effects, and it's the truth! Here you will find the useful information about dangerous programs.


Teoma adware

What is Teoma. Removal reasons and methods

Teoma is a malicious tool that emerged in the system, shortly before the ads began to show up. The majority of symptoms, that people associate with the aging of their hardware, are caused by adware, in this case - Teoma. We are talking about frequent reloads, lagging, a problematic load, critical failures, overheating, and lots of other irritating issues. If it is not obvious for you – we will explain it at length.


  • Slack operation of the laptop is in most cases caused by the obstruction of an OS with various hazardous utilities, malware and adware. You can't blame the PC for it. Adware has a dangerous practice of working in a background mode and launching in time of the OS' boot. That’s why you're waiting for more than a minute before the computer is able to respond to your demands after you turn it on. They aren't helpful in any meaning, yet they're still consuming the OS’ resources.
  • Superheat is called by that very fact – too many utilities are acting at the same time. In fact, you're able to turn them off, but they’ll quickly modify their settings and will be back as soon as you reboot the PC.
  • BSOD's aren't exactly the Teoma’s feature – they’re more of a web-criminals' mistake. Dangerous viruses are co-operating okay with the most of other programs, but the deficient advertising tools are quarreling with some reputable programs and calling critical failures.


You could have mentioned that the spam flood isn't on this our list. Of course, it’s caused by adware too, but who blame hardware for that thing?!



As you've already noticed that we only talk about multiple malicious utilities. It’s because dangerous utilities don't infect the device alone. Adware always brings buddies along. Teoma is showing you annoying banners and modify the settings of your browser, yet besides that – it cannot harm the computer. The much more serious story happens when the dangerous program stays within the system for a long time and encourages you to get more adware, which starts the avalanche of adware. That’s how the serious problems begin: each link you're clicking can lead to an infected site, and you might get some nasty malware. You surely want to evade this situation, and so we strongly encourage you to eliminate Teoma in a timely manner.

How to guard the computer

Before we start cleaning up the PC, there’s one more thing to discuss: anti-viral defense. We're not talking about an antivirus, as antivirus can't fully ward off adware. Teoma applies the completely different approach. It doesn't sneak into the PC in some sophisticated way, adware easily allows you to install it. And, in most cases, you agree. 80% users do that. Teoma uses the bundled installation technique. It’s more about tricks than about hacker's mastery, but it works perfectly from the days when the World Wide was created. Hackers compose a program bundle, put several dangerous tools in it, and describe it as a helpful tool. After that, anyone might get it and install all viruses which are in it. The most interesting thing is the pop-up window where you can choose the way of installation. In most cases, it offers you pick an installation folder for a new utility, modify its features or choose the extra functions that might be suitable for you. In case of Teoma, you pick between “get what I want and delete everything else” and “install it all and do not care about consequences.” The cursor is already placed above the way that scammers want you to choose, so you should only click “OK.” That’s how adware has got into the system.

How to remove Teoma

There are two methods to get rid of Teoma. It can be performed in manual mode if you're familiar with the basics of PC knowledge, or with use of a good anti-viral utility, which will do it way faster and grant protection from infection in future. Both these ways have their pros and cons. Anyone might uninstall one or two pieces of adware manually, but if you have plenty of those – the device will be too retarded for you finish the process. By-hand uninstalling doesn’t require buying any software, but on the contrary – it’s smarter to spend some funds on a reliable antivirus than to grieve about not buying it when the laptop is infected. Now we want to present you Spyhunter. This program is a well-known adware-hunter, and you can know it for sure it if you try it out. Press the button under this paragraph to install a test version with limited capabilities.
