There are many types of advertising programs, and they use various manners of penetration. They're all known to us, but some manners just aren’t good enough to add them to our list. If you wish to learn how to deal with the best ones, here they are:


  • Sponsored installation, AKA "bundling" is the easiest manner for advertising tool to get into your browser. Its main advantage is simpleness, and its best aspect (for scammers, of course) is that user performs the whole process solely. They only have to make a bundle with a few advertising programs are mixed with one relatively useful gratis program. A customer needs the tool, so he finds the package, installs its content and gets every single piece of useless junk from it. To avoid it, we advise you to inspect with caution all windows with checkboxes. Don’t click "OK" mindlessly, as it might cause serious issues.
  • Download through creators’ website. This manner is less popular than the bundled installation, and usually, it’s successful when an advertising program comes from some comparatively well-known website. For one, a guy wishes his website to be more popular and creates a utility, reminding you of some interesting changes, new content, etc. The worst thing about these apps is that sooner or later it will start showing you affiliate links with annoying frequency. Fortunately, these utilities could be uninstalled easily, and they will never return.
  • Download through swindler' website or via a direct link. It happens frequently with serious malware, but advertising programs use such technique in rare cases. We'd bet you have encountered it once or even oftener. You visit a site, and there is an ad, proposing you to get a highly helpful program which will improve your browsing experience. You've heard it all before, huh? You pass the link and see a shiny suspicious page, telling you that well-known search utilities are pointless and tricky, but search engine isn’t like them. It’s straight, fast, and won’t transfer your data to big corporate organizations. And it really is so, as it'll transfer them to much smaller corporations and parties of fraudsters, who know how to use it. These tools are also simple to beat: do not click on ads. No matter whether or not they appear reliable – don't click at all. Decline all suggestions which came from strange websites, and your PC will be safe and swift.


We’re assured that the virus penetrated the system through one of those techniques, and after reading the above list you can protect the PC against them. Now it’s time to uninstall
