As you know, search engines are meticulously filtering the web-pages that are displayed to the user. Each website is meticulously checked, and only the most safe ones can pass this test. Web-sites, which don’t pass the inspection, automatically fall into the category of “suspicious”. The examination is named indexing, and it needs a great numbers of staff and money, as thousands of sites of varying grades are created each day, and the new, papers, pages and partitions emerge on the web-sites that are already checked. The installation of such virus, in fact, refuses all features of well-known search engines, and victim’s browser becomes totally vulnerable to all threats. Advertising program has neither the resources nor the people to check the sites as Yahoo does. If you type something on the compromised browser, the hazardous tool just selects the random web-site of several thousand that are kept in its memory, and puts it on the first place.

Viruses may invade man’s workstation in various ways, in attempts to trick you to let virus penetrate the computer. Advertising software act differently. Officially, adware don’t inflict immediate harm to user’s system and cannot be called “viruses”. They can drive user mad; they interfere to use the Net, but they can’t cause direct harm to your system and the personal info. In this regard, adware is distributed absolutely legal. Some victims download it by themselves, reading and confirming the license agreement. The most popular technique is the download in one package with useful unpaid programs.
The last technique must be discussed singly, since it is the most common way of infection by viruses and redirects, as well as by all types of counterfeit browsers and tools. The method is not difficult: viral files are added to the installer of toll-free tool. This file is completely closed, and you can’t see what you are downloading. The only action that user can perform with such file is to run the installation. Thus, if user installs the tool that you wanted to, malware will install too. Ads are spreading legally, so, they need to inform you about their actions, and ask for permission. At the stage of downloading the man still has a chance to avoid infection. The opportunity to do so is named “installation for professional users”. During the installation process you can choose in which manner you want to install the program. It may be recommended or advanced. The recommended method lets the virus to choose what to install. And, most often, it chooses to install all trash that is there. If you pick the second way, you will see all tools, ready for the installation, and will have the ability to decide personally, which programs to install. Names of installation ways might differ, but the core is very simple – the criminals want to convince you that it is better to stop thinking and click “OK”. We hope that understanding the methods that malware uses to infiltrate your PC, it might help you to avoid infection.
If you want to know, why there are so much advertising programs, and is it profitable, we can tell you. Actually, at its high cost, legal advertising brings too few customers. The disposition of any ad on any website is worth the money, and the value increases in direct proportion to the value of the web-page itself. Google and Yahoo offer more targeted advertising strategies, but they are not as productive as Yeabd66.cc. For advertising on the websites, the ratio of views to clicks is, at max, 10 to 1. We have to itemize that 10% is the incredibly good outcome, but ordinarily the count is between 1 and 0.01%. Adware can lead almost all its victims to the needed website at lower cost. The majority of users don’t consider adware hazardous, until their machines are completely dead, and use those machines for years, experiencing different issues during the use of Internet, and thinking that this is normal. Such people are ensuring a steady flow of visitors to dangerous web-pages, helping them to exist for a many years.
If you carried out all steps correctly, adware must be removed at this time, and the only thing left to do is to defend your system from all other threats. Except the anti-virus, there is one thing that can shield your machine and your files against viruses: it’s your own experience. In generality of cases, the user is the weak place of security system, which allows unwanted program to break into the PC. To avoid the infection you have to abide to certain rules, so we made a list for you:
- Anti-viral program is the first line of your machine’s security, that’s why it must be enabled and updated. Some viruses might ask you to switch the antivirus off. It may be shown in form of the system message or in different manner. You don’t need to listen to suchlike requests.
- Do not ignore the hints of your browser. Browsers also can detect the dangerous sites, and they understand when you are going to do something suspicious. If your browser warns you about the unreliability of a particular website – don’t visit it.
- User should avoid doing anything on the dangerous web-pages. These are all the types of sites with content “for adults”, sites of ForEx brokers and cheapjack web-sites that distribute free software or bad-quality products.
- You need to carefully observe the installation of all tools. EULA is too massive, and there is a bunch of useless data, but if you’ll inspect it – you may find something substantial. If you are installing the licensed software, developed by world-known software creators such as Apple, Kaspersky or Piriform, you can believe in their name. But the unknown developers spend all time in search of money, and they might accept to spread adware through their own software. When you install any program, it could show you the option between a “common” and “complex” type of installing – choose the “advanced” variant.
- E-mail is very handy method for web-criminals to distribute malware. If you got a letter that you did not wait for, and you don’t know the sender – you shouldn’t click on it.
- Always copy important data on an external hard drive. If the system is often attacked by adware, the wisest choice would be to keep the significant files on an external media that may help you in the case of particularly heavy infection.
If you follow these rules, you might avoid getting any perilous programs. If some of your requests are still unanswered – just comment this item and we will reply to you ASAP.
