If your browser has started to behave strangely, if advertising content emerges on each website, home page and search engines were switched – on this website you will see a solution to your problem.
The only function that Go Game Go advertising tools can perform – is to place ads on every web-page. When Go Game Go sneaks into customer’s system, it immediately begins to generate advertising. Pop-ups, the manipulation with the results of search queries, malicious links, redirects and advertising banners – here’s a short list of its methods. Search engines do an important thing: they check all the pages on the Net to let you see only the safest ones. Sites are thoroughly checked, and only the most qualitative ones can pass this examination. All other sites might be called suspicious, or even harmful. This test is named indexing, and the amount of resources that is required to perform it is really big, because thousands of web-sites of different grades are designed every day, and the new, papers, pages and partitions emerge on the checked web-sites. But, when the customer installs Go Game Go, he refuses the services of the reputable search engine, and replaces them with viral services. Advertising program has neither the resources nor the people to check the websites like Yahoo does. When you type something via the infected browser, malware simply chooses the web-site of several dozen that are kept in its list, and shows it to you. You have a 99% probability that this website is dangerous, and isn’t related to your request. Go Game Go shows it on the first position only because the website owners have paid to the hackers, obliging them to provide a certain number of website visits. Malware isn’t interested in client’s preferences, and pays no attention to his wishes. Malware will force you see as much ads as it is possible, until you understand that you are deceived.

Viruses may get into your machine in various ways, in attempts to force you to let virus penetrate the computer. Adware do it another way. In fact, adware don’t inflict immediate injuries to man’s PC and cannot be named “viruses”. They can drive anyone mad; they make the Web browsing very difficult, although they do not inflict direct damage to your PC and the private info. In this regard, adware is spreaded fully legal. Some customers install it personally, from the website. The most effective way is the download in one package with other free tools.
The latter method must be explained singly, because it’s the very common technique of infection by malware and hijackers, as well as by all types of counterfeit browsers and tools. This way is plain: harmful files are included to the installation file of the needed program. The file is completely closed, and its contents cannot be seen. The only thing that you can do with this file is to install it. It means that if you’ll install the software that you searched for, virus installs too. Even if Go Game Go causes many uncomfortable effects, it is completely legal, because it doesn’t spoil your computer and the data, stored on it. When the adware is outside the machine the victim still has a chance to avoid it. The opportunity to do so is named “installation for skilled users”. The choice can be found in a separate window, during installation, where the tool asks you to choose the installation method between “recommended” and “complex”. The first way is that you just install everything that is inside this file, even if there are ten completely useless programs. If you choose the second manner, you will be shown a list of programs, ready to be installed, and will have the ability to decide personally, what to install. Names of installation ways may be different, but the essence is always the same – the swindlers are trying to persuade you that it is better to stop thinking and press “OK”. We hope that understanding the methods that malware uses to invade your system, it might assist you to avoid infection.
Some readers are wondering; for what reason people create advertising tools that irritate users so much, if they can simply put advertisements in designated places? In fact, at its high cost, rightful ad brings not many customers. You can’t simply locate the ad on top of the reputable site, because it will cost a lot. Search engines offer more complex advertising techniques, but they aren’t as productive as adware. According to the statistical data, this ad on any web-page can attract an average of no more than ten percent of all visitors that have seen the advertisement. We have to point out that 10 to 1 is a phenomenally great result, but usually the ratio is between 1 and 0.01%. Advertisement tool can redirect almost all victims to the specified site at lower cost. Usually, customers don’t think that adware is unwanted, until their machines are totally clogged, and use infected laptops for years, experiencing different issues when using the Internet, and thinking that this is OK. Such users are providing a steady flow of visitors to untrusted web-sites, assisting them to exist for a many years.
If you performed all steps properly, virus must be deleted at this time, and the only thing left to do is to secure your system from all other threats. Though the antivirus is the groundwork of protection for your workstation, but one program is not enough. In generality of cases, the user is the weak link of security system that allows malware to crawl into the system. There are some rules that you should abide, if you want your machine to remain safe:
- Antivirus is the first line of your system’s security, and it must be working and updated. Even if you’ll suddenly see the pop-up message with the request to disable an antivirus to install anything, you should not do this. Licensed tools do not require disabling the anti-viral tool, so the message is try to infect the PC.
- You shouldn’t neglect the prompts of your browser. Internet browsers also can detect the malicious web-sites, and they understand when you are going to do something unwanted. If the browser says to you that a particular web-page is perilous – you shouldn’t go to this site.
- You should avoid performing anything on the perilous sites. By the word “perilous”, we mean any sort of web-sites with pornographic content, websites of ForEx brokers and low-grade web-pages that spread pirated programs or bad-quality products.
- You must watch carefully for the installation of all programs. License agreement is too massive, and there is a bunch of unnecessary data, but if you’ll inspect it – you might find something substantial. If you are installing the good tool, designed by world-known software vendors such as Skype, Piriform or Microsoft, you can rely on their standing. But if you are installing free software in similar manner, you will put at risk your laptop and the data stored there. When you install any program, it could give you the choice between a “recommended” and “for advanced users” type of installing – choose the “advanced” variant.
- Be careful with e-mails. If you gain a letter, which you did not wait for, and you do not know who send it – you shouldn’t click on it.
- The copies should be kept on an external media. If the computer is often attacked by perilous programs, the safest decision would be to keep the important information on an external media that will help you in the case of particularly heavy infection.
These hints are easy, but the fruit of adherence to them is really big. If you can include something to this item or need to report an issue in time of the uninstalling of Go Game Go – type the “comments” field and we will reply to you as soon as possible.
