We will tell you how adware infected your OS, and how you should act to prevent re-infection. Except that, we’ll tell you everything about SDP’s special aspects, and how perilous it could be if it’s left unattended.

What is SDP. Removal reasons and methods

Useless programs, such as SDP, were, are being developed to show you links and assure you that they’re good enough to make a click. It is small, annoying and nearly useless. If you've got just SDP and nothing else – the OS might last some time, but that’ll never be so, as advertising programs love to engage their mates to the kick-up. Mind us, there will be a party, and it will be breathtaking. Adware makes the machine exposed in the face of various dangers, since it can obstruct it with advertising utilities in a moment. Commonly, there will be other advertising tools or simple viruses, but sometimes, you get an encrypting virus as well, and it won’t be good at all. This virus is a big hole in your device's protection, and you have to close it on time.



We know many types of adware, and they use various tactics of infection. We know them all, but some methods just aren’t bad enough to put them on this list. If you wish to know how to deal with the worst ones, we've got them all:


  • Affiliate installation, AKA "bundling" is the easiest method for any virus to get into customer's workstation. Its basic trait is simplicity, and its best aspect (for hackers, of course) is that customer executes the entire process on his own. They only have to make an adware package where a few examples of adware are combined with a program that customers would like to download. A customer wants the tool, so he downloads the software pack, runs the installation and in the end - gets the whole lotta dangerous crap that’s in it. To avoid this, you'd better inspect carefully all windows where they offer you to place checkmarks. You'd better not click "OK" without thinking, because it might cause big issues.
  • Infection from creators’ web page. This manner is not as popular as bundling, and commonly, it’s successful when adware comes from the relatively popular file-sharing service. For one, some guy wants his web page to become more popular and makes a tool that notifies you of some interesting changes, fresh giveaways, and other stuff. The worst thing about such apps is that sooner or later you will start receiving advertising links with irritating frequency. The good news is that suchlike utilities are easy to delete, and they won’t reinstall themselves.
  • Infection through scammers' site or from a special link. It occurs usually with dangerous malware, but adware uses such manner sometimes. We're sure that you have experienced it at least once. You attend a site, and there is an ad, offering you to download a modern tool which is able to help you browse the Web faster than Google. You've heard it all before, huh? You click the link and find a bright suspicious website, explaining to you that usual search tools are useless and tricky, yet SDP search engine is not like them. It’s fair, fast, and will not give away your data to large corporate organizations. And it really is so, as it will transfer the data to small and humble corporations and groups of scammers, which will find how to use it. It’s also plain to evade: do not mind pop-up banners. It doesn't matter whether or not they appear reliable – don't click at all. Decline all suggestions, coming from unknown sources, and the PC will remain safe and swift.


We have no doubts that SDP got into the device via one of these ways, and after reading the above paragraphs you know how to shield the laptop against them. Let's just delete adware.
