Capodanno definitely is the most annoying and hazardous advertising utility of the passing month, and if you've encountered it these days – we're offering our assistance. First and foremost, you should understand that such type of program is not like the true malware, as it isn't a virus, in fact. It is a utility, designed for one target: to display ads. As a matter of fact, its aim is more complex: it has to distribute banners and does it in such an annoying manner that victim will click on an ad while hiding it. Today's review will explain to you how exactly fraudsters earn their return from adware, how it infects the system and how you can eliminate malware.


Capodanno adware

What is Capodanno. Removal reasons and methods

Swindlers, or whoever maintains this adware, want to make it as irritating as nothing else before, to make you click on ads. Each click invites new advertising utilities onto your workstation. From hackers' angle this technique is too perfect to be real. Capodanno only displays a plethora of pop-ups, banners, links and ads, and because they appear right in front of user's eyes, he wishes to get rid of them. Needless to say that these banners are not for closing. There is no "hide" service for them, so each click opens another window or a new tab with a viral webpage. The link may lead to a file download too, and if the computer is already infected and the browser settings are switched – download will be successful. That’s how you receive annoying viruses as long as Capodanno works in the system.


To understand how the machine is getting clogged with undesired utilities you should learn how adware gets into the system. The reason for it is the additional download. It surely is the safest technique to get into user’s android. Hackers just put the dangerous file on a few portals and temporize, until user installs it. When it happens, it’s a matter of luck, so scammers may only trust that the operator will not dig through the EULA and won’t bother to find out what he’s actually installing. If you want to escape the penetration trough affiliate installation – this advice might be useful:


  • Do not install the software from unreliable sources;
  • Under any circumstances, do not deactivate your AV utility, especially if you see a suggestion to;
  • You shouldn't download software, whose purposes are unclear;
  • Take notice of the user agreement;


Since you've mastered the basic regulations of phone protection, let’s point out how Capodanno functions, for you to understand the manners to delete it.


When the protection is passed, Capodanno becomes really busy, which involves creating new registry strings, changing the browser options, modifying the features of browser shortcuts and establishing scheduled tasks. We don’t declare that the scheme stays unchanged in each case, still the browser controls are a #1 priority for an adware, to make sure that your system is attackable. Commonly, advertising program alters the homepage and the search engine options, placing there a dangerous website in place of reliable services. Each time you're using it for web-browsing – you submit the machine to the risk of another infection. Solid viruses might schedule system tasks to reinstall themselves after you eliminate them. This function makes them extremely hard to delete. You might attempt time after time, erasing all folders and files, but when you restart the Capodanno will be already there. To elude this you need to run a deeper cleanup or use a decent antivirus software.

How to remove Capodanno

Delete all recently added apps from your phone. If you’ve installed an app on your phone or tablet using Google Play that you no longer want, you can uninstall it by following these steps:


  • Visit your device's Settings menu > Apps or Application manager (this may differ depending on your device).
  • Touch the app you’d like to uninstall.
  • Select Uninstall.


We also recommend turning off the option that allows you to install applications that belong to unknown resources. To do this, go to Settings -> Security. There, turn this option off.
