If you are reading our article, you definitely have a problem with irritating pop-ups. It's a usual issue these days, because the advertising programs are becoming more and more popular, and they're dwelling even on the most reputable resources. The point is to realize how adware works. We're also aware of how "Its your lucky day" infects the device, and we'll tell how to avoid it. Experienced users can tell you that it’s better to stop malware than to cure it, and they’re right! Here you will find all you should know about dangerous programs.

What is "Its your lucky day". Removal reasons and methods

"Its your lucky day" is an unwanted program that emerged on your computer, exactly when the ads started to show up. Almost all red flags, which PC operators associate with the aging of their hardware, are caused by undesired utilities, in this case - "Its your lucky day". Among them are frequent shutdowns, lags, a slow launch, critical failures, overheating, and lots of other annoying problems. Here's an in-depth definition, if you don't believe us.

 

  • Dilatory performance of the machine is generally triggered by the clogging of a system with adware, some perilous programs and malware. You cannot put the blame on your computer. The advertising programs have a bad practice of operating in a background mode and launching immediately after the PC's boot. That’s why you are waiting for such a long time until the workstation is capable of answering to your commands after it's turned on. They do not perform any functions, but they're still racking up the computer's resources.
  • Excessive heat is triggered by the same fact – lots of tools are running simultaneously. Actually, turning them off might do fine, but they’ll quickly change their settings and will be back as soon as you reboot the device.
  • BSOD's are not really the "Its your lucky day"’s work – they’re more like a web-criminals' mistake. Sophisticated malware is working okay with all useful programs, but the rough adware is quarreling with some reputable programs and calling Emergency shutdowns.

 

You could have noticed that the abundance of ads isn't on this our list. Obviously, it’s called by advertising utilities too, but who blame hardware for such problem?!

 

 

As you've already noticed that we always talk about lots of dangerous utilities. The reason for it is that such utilities don't stay alone for long. Adware always brings mates along. "Its your lucky day" can show you pop-ups and change the settings of your browser, but apart from that – it cannot damage the PC. Another thing happens if adware remains within the device for a while and allows you to establish other undesired utilities via the defense breaches that it has made in your browser. And then the super problems begin: each ad you're clicking might lead to a malicious site, where you can get some nasty malware. We're sure that you want to avoid this problem, and so we highly recommend you to get rid of "Its your lucky day" ASAP.

How to protect the system

Until we've started cleaning up the PC, there is an important thing to talk about: AV security. We're not talking about an antivirus, because antivirus cannot effectively protect you against adware. "Its your lucky day" applies the wholly different approach. It doesn't hack the computer in some smart way, "Its your lucky day" simply allows you to install it. And, in the majority of cases, you let it in. Almost all users do that. Adware uses the affiliate infection manner. It’s more about tricks than about hacker's mastery, but it keeps working since the Web was invented. Fraudsters develop an adware bundle, put a lot of pieces of adware in it, and name it after some helpful tool. After that, any user might download it and install every single program that's in it. The major point of the scheme is the pop-up menu in which you can pick the manner of installation. In case of a usual utility, it offers you choose a folder where you need to have that tool, modify its controls or pick the useful functions that may be suitable for you. While installing adware, you pick between “install what I need and decline other stuff” and “get all that crap and do not care about consequences.” The cursor is automatically placed on the option, suggested by hackers, so you only need to click “OK.” That’s how the undesired tool has infected the PC.
