How did I get infected with?

StarConcept is a master in the arts of deceit. It’s so sly in its trickery that it not only gets your approval for its installation, but it does so without you even realizing it. The tool is so subtle in its methods of invasion that it manages to keep you entirely in the dark about its presence on your computer until it decides otherwise. More often than not, it sneaks in undetected with the help of freeware. It provides possibly the easiest access point as most users don’t pay nearly as enough attention as they should during its install. They don’t bother familiarizing themselves with the terms and conditions, but, instead, agree to all of them in haste. Do NOT do that! That would be a grave mistake! Freeware usually comes bundled with all kinds of malware just waiting to pounce on your computer and corrupt your system. Don’t let that happen. Try to be a bit more careful when dealing with freeware and questionable updates. Also, many adware applications tend to hitch a ride with spam email attachments, corrupted links, or sites. Remember, a little extra caution today can save you a lot of headaches and troubles tomorrow.

Why are these ads dangerous?

StarConcept is an ad-supported application, which is why it bombards you with so many pop-ups. Each ad, the tool throw your way, is a means of prolonging its existence. Does that sound confusing? Well, it’s not. It’s pretty straightforward. The tool’s existence relies on its ability to generate web traffic and pay-per-click revenue for the third parties that published it. So, to continue its operations, the application has to produce profits for these unknown individuals. It fulfills its objective through the never-ending array of pop-ups. Each ad you click on helps StarConcept live to see another day. That’s why it displays so many. The more you press, the better. Because if the tool fails to meet its purpose and does not make money for these people, they take it down. To avoid the fate of extinction, StarConcept does its homework on you. It doesn’t just flood you with random ads. Oh, no. It studies you, so as to be better equipped to make the choice on which ads are to your unique taste. The program observes your browsing habits until it’s able to determine what your preferences include. Then the waterfall of ads begins. No matter how appealing the pop-ups seem, do NOT click on them as you’ll only set yourself up for a bad time. One click on a single pop-up inevitably results in more unwanted malware installs. Unfortunately, StarConcept doesn’t stop at just monitoring your online activities. It keeps a thorough record of every move you make and then sends the collected data to the people that support it. That includes your personal and financial information. Are you willing to take such a gamble? Don’t. Do yourself a favor, and delete StarConcept immediately. It’s for the best.
