What is Advisurf. Removal reasons and methods

Advisurf is adware created to display banners to you and assure you of their reliability. It is small, irritating and nearly offenseless. If you've got just Advisurf and nothing except it – the system, supposedly, will last long enough, but that’ll never be so, since adware always invites its pals to every kick-up. We'd bet that there will be a kick-up, with blackjack and advertising. The virus exposes your computer against various hazards, and it can clog it by suspicious tools in a moment. Generally, you'll receive other advertising utilities or simple viruses, yet you might get an encrypting virus too, and, well, you'd better not to. Advisurf is an open breach in the computer's defense, and you should seal it in a timely manner.



There are lots of types of adware, and they employ various tactics of penetration. They're all known to us, but many techniques are too obvious to put them on this list. Here we've gathered the most widespread ones:


  • Affiliate installation, AKA "bundling" is the easiest method for advertising program to penetrate customer's device. It’s very easy to perform, and its very helpful characteristic (from hackers’ point of view) is that victim does everything with his own hands. The only thing they should do is to develop an adware bundle with a few advertising utilities are combined with a program that customers would like to get. A victim loves the program, so he gets the software pack, initiates the installation and ends up with the whole lot of dangerous junk that’s in it. To prevent it, we recommend you to read cautiously every window with checkboxes. You'd better not click "agree" without thinking, because it causes serious problems.
  • Infection from creators’ site. This manner is less popular than bundling, and in most cases, it succeeds when adware comes from the more or less well-liked website. For instance, a dude wishes his web page to be more popular and develops a utility that notifies you of some interesting changes, fresh content, and other stuff. The worst thing about such applications is that sooner or later it will start showing you promotional banners with aggravating frequency. The good news is that these programs are easy to remove, and they won’t come back again.
  • Infection via an infected website or from a special link. It's more about real viruses, but advertising programs use this manner in rare cases. We'd bet you’ve encountered it at least once. You attend a web page, and there is an ad, proposing you to download a highly helpful utility to enhance your web-surfing experience. You've seen it all before, huh? You click the link and find yourself on a garish strangely-looking page, explaining to you that well-known search utilities are evil, yet Advisurf utility is different. It is straight, protected, and won’t sell your data to big corporations. And it really is so, as it will transfer them to much lesser corporations and bands of fraudsters, which will put it to use. These utilities are also plain to avoid: do not click on ads. No matter how they look like – don't click at all. Reject all invitations, coming from suspicious websites, and the system will remain secure and swift.


We know for sure that adware penetrated the machine through one of those ways, and now you're able to shield the device from them. Now you're ready to eliminate adware.
