I wrote this article to help you remove Jawego Virus. This Jawego Virus removal guide works for all Windows versions.

Jawego is presented as a system optimizer. The application is supposed to improve your machine’s performance. In reality, Jawego does the exact opposite. Experts have categorized the software as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). This is because its operations involve security risks. Having Jawego installed to your computer is enough to expose you to threats. The PUP conducts its tasks automatically. It does not ask users for permission. Furthermore, the clandestine program does not feature customization settings. Users are deprived of the option to control the utility.

Jawego performs most of its operations through background processes. The activity of the insidious program affects the operating system (OS) in a negative way. Your computer will become slow and unresponsive. It will often freeze, crash and fail to complete sophisticated tasks. There are different reasons for a slump in the system’s performance. The older your computer gets, the more outdated it will become. The latter symptoms may not be telling enough, but you are sure to notice an intrusive task the shady tool conducts right under your nose. The PUP aims to have users notice this activity.

The intrusive task we are talking about is running advertising campaigns. Jawego displays ads on a frequent basis. This is the main source of income for the developers of the PUP. They mediate third party content. A lot of online traders hire agents to promote their websites. The mediator receives a certain payment in commissions. The amount is calculated on the basis of the user-generated clicks. This method is referred to as the pay-per-click system. Jawego will show you offers for a variety of consumer goods, including clothes, accessories, technological devices, sports gear, games, furniture, decorative elements, gardening equipment, games and others.

The PUP deploys a number of tricks in the effort to garner users’ attention and acquire their interest. The furtive program decorates the advertisements with special effects. This includes bright colorful patterns, cursive fonts, flash animations and others. The advertisements vary in format. Jawego will show you pop-ups, pop-unders, coupon boxes, in-text links, banners, interstitial, contextual, floating, inline, transitional and comparison ads. The covert tool lists competitive deals and makes generous discounts. Some of the offerings may intrigue you. Keep in mind that the PUP does not run scans to check whether the sources are reliable. Any given ad could lead to an infected domain. Our advice to users is to avoid unsolicited ads.

However, Jawego involves another risk. The PUP has the ability to collect information from the web browser. It will record your surfing history, keystrokes, tracking cookies, IP address, email account, geographic location, area code, demographic profile, telephone number, home address, user names, passwords and other data you have made available through your online sessions. The gathered input will be stored into catalogs and traded on dark markets. Your personal information could be sold to cyber criminals.

Jawego can enter your computer in one of two ways. The main propagation vector is bundling. The PUP can travel merged with freeware, shareware and pirated copies of paid utilities. This allows the secluded program to get installed without running a wizard or opening a dialog box. The download client will have Jawego included as a bonus tool. The option will be listed in the installation steps. If you omit reading the end user license agreement (EULA) and accept the presets, you will allow the PUP into your system.

The other way to transfer Jawego to a computer is through a spam email. The sender could write the bogus message on behalf of a legitimate company or entity, like the national post, a courier firm, an institution, a bank, a government branch or the district police department. The PUP will be hidden behind an attachment. The file will be described as an important piece of documentation. There are many spam campaigns these days, so you need to tend to your letters carefully. To check whether a given email is genuine, look up the account is has been sent from.
