What’s going on?? Are some of these things happening to you computer? Pop-ups, virus warnings, your browser won’t go to certain sites or gets hijacked to other sites? Is your PC freezing a lot or locking up completely? Sounds like you might be infected with adware or some other form of malware that is probably doing things on your computer that you don’t want to be happening.
What defines adware?
Adware by definition is not necessarily bad. Quite a few of these applications are an accepted addition to your machine since they add value to your computing experience at the price of a few ads placed within the program or your browser.It is a tool a company uses to get you information about their product. Every day you are bombarded with countless advertising messages, be it from TV, radio, billboards or ads on a website. There are several programs out there that do this in a respectable way and tell you how and what is happening. Others, however, have no compunction to even ask if it is OK to even install their software on your PC and will use tricks to get you to unknowingly install their malware on your PC.
The purveyors of these malevolent programs use any and all methods to get you to purchase whatever they are offering. Sometimes these offers are bogus and there will never be any sort of exchange except for your money into their bank account.
How can I remove adware and other malware from my machine?
Many of the top virus and internet security programs do a good job of keeping your computer safe from these threats. However none of them are 100% especially when through trickery these programs get installed on a computer. Once these programs get on your computer, they can entrench themselves so thoroughly into the operating system on your machine that it becomes very difficult to rid yourself from their effects.
In my experience I have often found that the big virus and security packages fall short on eliminating these types of threats once installed on a computer. They do a good job of stopping it from happening but once in, they fall a bit short. Scanning with these programs will show nothing wrong but you still have problems.
In these instances your best bet is to look into an adware removal software. These programs are specifically developed to address these issues head on and quickly return your computer to its formerly pristine state.
