The article how to remove Putop.me virus from the computer and browsers: manual and automatic uninstall methods. Instructions are suitable for Windows, MAC OS, Android systems and Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Opera. How to protect the computer against such like viruses in the future.


Putop.me adware


If you’re reading our item, you probably have a problem with aggressive links. It isn't a rare thing today, since adware is getting extremely widespread, and they're living even on the most reputable resources. We can explain to you how they function. We also know how Putop.me infects the device, and we'll teach you what to do to prevent it. Veteran operators will tell you that it’s easier to prevent the infection than to remove it, and it's true! On this website, you'll find the helpful information about dangerous programs.


Putop.me is an undesired program that emerged on your device, right before the hell broke loose. The majority of red flags, which might look as the hardware obsolescence, are triggered by advertising tools, such as Putop.me. We’re talking about a slow boot, lagging, frequent reboots, critical errors, overheating, and lots of other irritating issues. If you do not believe us – we’ll define it at length.


  • Poky activity of the device is usually called by the clogging of an OS with malware, some dangerous tools and adware. It isn't the system’s cause. Adware has a bad practice of working in the background and loading immediately after the OS' boot. That’s why you have to sit still for such a long time until the workstation is capable of answering to your signals after the boot. These utilities aren't helpful in any way, but they're still racking up the system's resources.
  • Overheat is triggered by that very problem – a bunch of programs are working together. In fact, switching them off may work great, but they’ll automatically change their settings and will return as soon as you reboot the device.
  • BSOD's are not actually the adware’s work – they’re more about a hackers' mistake. Complex viruses are working easily with all useful utilities, but the deficient advertising utilities are conflicting with lots of the well-known programs and delivering Emergency shutdowns.


You could have mentioned that the abundance of ads isn't on the list. Obviously, it’s caused by adware too, however who blame the computer for such issue?!



You might have noticed that we always talk about many unwanted utilities. It’s because these tools don't infect the system alone. Putop.me loves to hang out with friends. Putop.me can show you advertisement and modify the browser features, but save that – it cannot harm the PC. Another problem occurs when adware remains within the OS for more than a week and lets you download more adware through the vulnerabilities that it has created in your browser. That’s how the super problems begin: each banner you click might lead to a malicious website, where you can download some nasty viruses. We're sure that you want to elude this situation, and the only way to do it is delete Putop.me as soon as possible.

How to shield your computer

Until we've started sweeping up the system, there is one more matter to talk about: AV security. We do not talk about an antivirus, because AV-program cannot fully guard you against Putop.me. Putop.me uses another approach. It doesn't penetrate the system through some vulnerability, adware simply asks for your permission to get installed. And, in the majority of cases, you allow it. 80% users do that. The method is called "bundled infection," and Internet-criminals just adore it. It’s more about social engineering than about hacker's mastery, yet it remains the most effective one since the Internet was invented. Fraudsters create an adware package, put lots of viruses in it, and give it a name of some helpful program. After that, anyone can get it and install every single program that's in it. The catch is the dialogue window in which you’re suggested to pick the way of installation. Usually, it means that you will choose an installation folder for the utility, alter its settings or choose the extra modules that you might need. In case of Putop.me, you pick between “get only the tool I need” and “install all that trash and do not care about consequences.” The cursor is automatically set above the manner, suggested by fraudsters, so you should only click “agree.” That’s how adware has entered the PC.

How to remove Putop.me

We know two approaches to uninstall Putop.me. You can perform it manually if you know the principles of computer skills, or with use of a good anti-viral utility, which will do it way faster and grant security from infection in future. Both these methods have their benefits and drawbacks. You might delete a few undesired utilities in the manual mode, but when there are many of those – the OS won't allow you to do so. By-hand deletion doesn’t need you to buy any utilities, but still – it’s better to buy a worthy AV-tool than to regret about not buying it when the computer is infected. Here comes our choice for Putop.me elimination: Spyhunter. This tool is a real adware-killer, and you will see it if you give it a try.
