What is Removal reasons and methods

A few days ago we received a complaint about a new virus that appeared on the Web and began to infect users’ computers around the world. The virus is called Victims said that their computers suddenly grew too slow and dumb, and many of them cann't change default computer name that was associated to Kuikdelivery. At the same time, browsers started to show tons of useless ads, pop-up windows, and suspicious links. That software appeared in the system stealthy, and users were unaware of its penetration or installation. That must be a really dangerous virus, huh?




Actually, it’s not a virus at all. is the advertising program that lives and operates with help of their victims. First of all, advertising programs can’t just “appear” on your computer, they need to be installed. Try to guess, who is installing them on your computer? That’s right, pilgrim, it’s you! We can’t say that it’s totally your fault that the computer is infected, since there were some other people, creating adware and distributing it, but you did the key part – you downloaded and allowed it to settle on your PC. Now you might be thinking “How did I do that?” We will explain it in detail in the next paragraph.


The protection of your computer begins with your responsibility and wise behavior on the Internet. If you won’t visit the compromised website and won’t download suspicious files – you will enjoy the smooth and fast system for years. By the way, that’s how got into the system: you caught it on some infected website or downloaded it in a bundle with few other equally useless programs.


Now we should explain to you what we mean by “a bundle”. The most popular method of adware distribution is called “bundling” and it consists of mashing the installation files of several programs into one big file, and putting that file in free access. It doesn’t sound too smart, but believe us – millions of people download different programs every day and install them without reading the T&C, EULA or whatever they call their list of useless statements. But, if they read them, they could see many interesting things about what they install and what they become liable for after the installation. So, the only thing that scammers need is to create such bundle, call it “Microsoft Word 2017” (for instance), and put it on some file-sharing website. It will be downloaded few thousand times in an hour. Now you might remember that you installed some super-useful software a few days ago, and it looked so good and reliable. That’s how sneaked into the system.


After the download, there is one more stage: the installation. The advantage of a software bundle is that you cannot open it to see what is inside. You can only run the installation wizard and hope for the best. When you did it – there is only one chance to save yourself from tons of spam, and it is the dialogue window. Remember – you should not skip any dialogue windows that appear during the installation of any program, without reading them. One of those windows will give you a choice between the “recommended” and “partial” installation variants. No matter how they will be called, but one will be strongly recommended and picked by default, and the other will be somehow hidden and presented dangerous and unwanted. And it’s the one that you need. By picking it you will be able to choose what program should be installed and what – canceled. If you will stick to our advice, given here, the security level of your computer will increase drastically. removal tool

There are many sorts of advertising software, but all of them aim to control your browser, as it’s the weakest link in your computer’s security. The browser deals with tons of information every day, and you can view hundreds of different websites, some of which might be not really safe. Based on that, adware tries to take over the browser to change its settings and make it a nice little advertising platform for one customer – you. So, to get rid of you should remove it from both the system itself and the browser (from all browsers if you use more than one of them). You can do it manually, and we’ll provide you with decent instructions on doing it, below this paragraph. The only thing we can say about manual method – it’s all about your own skill and attention. If you are not sure about it, you better make a backup of the system before starting, or just pick the easier and faster way - the automatic deletion. The automatic deletion requires some software to perform it for you, and we have such: it’s called Spyhunter. Spyhunter antivirus was designed to remove all forms of unwanted software from the system without any disturbance for the user.
