The only thing that Alltie virus adware can perform – is to show ads. After contact with the your PC, advertising program begins to place hype, and does it in all possible ways. The change of the results of search queries, pop-ups, viral links, redirects and advertising banners – here’s a brief list of its manners. As you know, search engines are thoroughly filtering the pages that are shown to the customer. Each website is carefully checked, and control can be passed only by the best ones. All other websites might be called unsafe, or even hazardous. The process is called indexing, and the amount of resources that is required to proceed it is really big, because thousands of web-sites of varying grades are created daily, and the new, sectors, articles and pages appear on the websites, which are already tested. But, when the man installs adware, he declines the services of his search engine, and replaces them with viral services. Malware hasn’t enough resources to check the web-sites like search engines do. When you type anything via the compromised browser, Alltie virus just chooses the random web-site of several dozen that are stored in its memory, and shows it to you. Most often, this web-page is malicious, and isn’t related to the thing that you want to find. Malware puts it on the first place only because the owners of this site have made an agreement with the swindlers, obliging them to provide a certain number of link clicks. Adware does not expect you to become a regular client, or have been satisfied by its job. Virus will force you pass as much links as it is possible, until you realize that you are tricked.

Ransomware might get onto man’s workstation in many techniques, in attempts to deceive you to let harmful software enter the PC. Adware act differently. Officially, the advertising tools don’t inflict immediate damage to your PC and can’t be named “viruses”. They can drive user mad; they make the Internet browsing very difficult, yet they cannot cause any harm to the user’s laptop and the private files. This is the cause, why advertising software are spreaded by legal methods. Many people download it personally, from its website. The most common technique is the bundled download with useful unpaid programs.
Let’s talk about the additional installation manner. This manner is simple: viral files are added to the.Exe file of the needed program. This file is completely closed, and you can’t see what you are downloading. Installation is the only action that user can perform and he, in most cases, does this. This means that if you will install the tool that you looked for, virus installs too. Even if advertising software causes many inconveniences, it is totally legal, since it doesn’t spoil the system and the files, kept on it. Until the virus hasn’t sneaked into the PC the victim still has some chances to avoid the problems. “Installation for skilled users” is the opportunity to intercept the virus until it penetrates the PC. The option comes in a separate window, during installation, where you are asked to pick the installation manner between “recommended” and “for professional users”. The first way lets the adware to choose what to install. And, most often, it decides to install all trash that is there. If you pick the second method, you will see the list of tools, ready for the installation, and will have the chance to choose personally, what to install. Actually, no matter how the installation manners are called – essence is that the scammers want you to be dumb and follow the instructions. If you will be aware of the manners, which malware uses to infect your system, it might assist you to avoid infection.
Some customers want to know for what reason criminals create adware that irritate customers so much, if they can simply put ads in specially created areas? This question is easy to answer: the value of the rightful ads is too big and its efficiency is too poor. You can’t just put the banner on the reputable site, because it will cost a lot. Commercial deployment of the site in Google search results costs much more. For banners on the web-pages, the ratio of views to clicks is, at max, 10 to 1. We want to point out that 10% is the incredibly great result, but generally the ratio goes on tenths of a percent. Advertisement tool can redirect 90% of customers to the specified site at lower cost. Many users don’t consider adware dangerous, until their computers are absolutely dead, and use these computers for years, suffering the different problems when using the Internet, and considering that this is OK. Such users assure a steady flow of victims to suspicious web-pages, helping them to exist for a many years.
Now, if malware is uninstalled, you should know how to defend your system from viruses for a long time. You know that the AV software is the basis of your computer’s security, but one program isn’t enough. Software don’t make failures, but people do, and such failures are the only cause of viral infections. To prevent the infection you should follow certain advices, so we made a list for you:
- Anti-viral tool is the first line of your machine’s defense, so it should be decent and updated. Even if you’ll suddenly get a system message with the request to disable an antivirus to upgrade something, you should not do this. Reputable software species don’t require disabling the anti-viral tool for their work, so the message is an attempt to break-in.
- You should not disregard the browser advices. Browsers have their own manners of malware finding and counteraction against customer’s perilous actions. If the browser notifies you about the peril of a particular website – you shouldn’t visit it.
- Man should avoid performing anything on the perilous websites. When we say “malicious”, we mean any kind of websites with services “for adults”, websites of ForEx brokers and shoddy websites, which distribute pirated media-files or defective products.
- Always watch closely for the installing of all tools. License agreement is very boring, and contains a bunch of unnecessary information, but there might be something considerable. During the installation of the good program, made by reputed software developers such as Adobe, Microsoft or Kaspersky, you can rely on their name. But the novice developers always need money, and they often accept to bundle their software with viruses. If in time of the installation you are given the choice between a “recommended” and “complex” type of installation – pick the “advanced” option.
- Be watchful with e-mail letters. If you receive a message that you didn’t wait for, and you don’t know who send it – you shouldn’t open it.
- The copies should be kept on an external hard drive. If your computer is often attacked by malware, the best solution would be to keep the significant data on an external media that might assist you if the machine will be critically infected.
If you follow these hints, you may avoid getting any viruses. If you still have some errors to fix – explain it in the “comments” field and we will answer you ASAP.
