How to remove Funny Collection from computer and browsers

Nowadays, the Internet is filled with many risks associated with malware, and these threats can be divided into several subcategories: viruses and Trojans, ransomware and adware programs. Today we talk about the advertising program, which is called Funny Collection, and is one of the most common adware during the last month.

This program gets on users' computers in several ways, but all these methods share one feature: they are all based on user gullibility, and his inattention. All adware infects computers only with the consent of the user. Funny Collection can’t appear on the computer "out of nowhere", and if there is adware on your PC - so you permitted it to come in. Most often, adware uses the following ways of penetration:

 

  • Download from the infected site. On the Internet there are many sites that distribute unwanted software, and adware are presented there very well. Each advertising program has its own description, and it won’t say that you will see hundreds of useless obsessions promotional offers every day. Description says that the program can give you an opportunity to get the most benefit, to find various deals and offers on the Internet, access to prohibited sites, and so on. Customers who decide to download suchlike program, get Funny Collection or something like that.
  • Bundled Installation. This installation method requires the installation of advertising software bundled with another program. 90% of advertising programs penetrating users' computers in this way. The essence of this method is this: fraudsters integrate the installation files of several programs in one package, where is only one useful program and all others are viruses or adware. The user tries to download the useful program, and during the installation, if he won’t carefully read the contents of the installation windows, he gets few viruses.

 

 

After penetrating a computer, Funny Collection begins to carry out the necessary preparations for its work. Any malicious program conflicts with the infected computer operating system, with antivirus software, with a browser and some other programs. To secure the success and reach its goals, Funny Collection does a few simple things:

 

  • Change of the browser settings, such as home page, default search engine and browser shortcut properties.
  • Addition of new lines in the registry that will change the browser settings back, even if you will reset them.

 

Then, when Funny Collection performs all these actions, it starts to work, and begins to show ads. It should be understood that the advertising, for the majority of users, is any link that leads to the foreign site. However, in fact, the advertising should be aimed at the acquisition by you of any goods or services. The advertiser is trying to make you like his advertising, you have acquired what it advertises, and advise this product to your friends. Those links that are distributed via Funny Collection are not intended to buy you something. All you need is to click on the link. Funny Collection creators aren’t responsible for what you can find by clicking on the link, and they do not want to make you a regular customer. The main goal of any advertising program is a click that you make on the displayed advertisement.

Then what is the case if the scammers do not sell anything? The point is an advertising payment system, which is called Pay Per Click. Each time the user clicks the link, the scammers get one cent, or, in rare cases, a few cents. Furthermore, the same system can be used to attack the large advertising companies. This method is a real headache for major advertising companies, as well as clicks from adware mainly go then when the user tries to close the annoying advertising windows. Of course, by clicking on a link and opening the site accidentally, the user immediately closes it. However, advertisers will still pay for this transition, without receiving even a chance that someone will buy the product. If advertising program has infected tens of thousands of computers and all of its victims receive the same links - the advertiser will suffer huge losses during the brief period of time.

Finally, and most importantly: Funny Collection simply prevents you from using the Internet. You see Funny Collection every time you open your browser, advertising inundates each visited site, blocks navigation elements and just annoys you every day. There is only one way to get rid of it all: to remove Funny Collection from your computer once and for all.
