- Annoying Pop-up's
- Shows commercial adverts
- Connects to the internet without permission
The majority of users install iLotto on their systems because they want to participate in a lottery and have a chance to win 1 000 000 dollars. Of course, it is not enough to download and install this program - users have to create an account in order to use it. To be honest, we do not know whether the chances to win money are as high as declared; however, we are sure that iLotto is a typical advertising-supported application (adware) that might put systems into danger. It does not really matter whether this program has slithered onto your PC without permission or you have downloaded it yourself, it is still highly recommended to delete this program. If you do not do that, you might notice that you cannot surf the web without interruptions one day. In addition, you might be exposed to potential threats.
We cannot agree with you more that iLotto seems to be quite decent at first sight, which explains why so many users download and install this program themselves. After iLotto is installed on the system, users might notice a new registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\iLotto created in the system registry. On top of that, a folder called iLotto can be found in C:\ProgramData. The program might also make other modifications in order to be able to work properly; however, we are sure that those changes which are listed in this article are the main ones.
Even though iLotto looks like a beneficial program, we cannot call it fully reliable either because it is known to be adware. As you probably know, adware programs show various commercial advertisements. Luckily, iLotto informs users that it is going to act like that, so people who download it from its official website ilotto.com know what to expect from it:
The program will not only display commercial advertisements, but will also offer users to subscribe to premium services from time to time. Specialists working at pcthreat.com highly recommend ignoring all the advertisements you will see on your screen. Remember, these ads might take a variety of forms, for example, they can appear as pop-ups, banners, coupons, in-text ads etc. We suggest that you do not click on any of them because we know that they might take you to bad web pages with an infectious content. We are sure that you do not wish this to happen. Last but not least, we want to inform you that iLotto might also gather information about users in order to present them with relevant commercials. It should not record any personal details; however, if you want to be sure that your privacy is safe, you need to remove iLotto from the system ASAP.
Even though users download this product of Cordial Data Systems themselves from its official website in most cases, it can slither onto computers in software bundles as well. As our specialists have managed to find out, this advertising-supported application can come together with potentially unwanted programs, adware, and other untrustworthy applications. In most cases, users download such bundles from file-sharing and other third-party web pages. It is not an easy task to protect the system; however, you can do that rather easily. All you need to do is to install a trustworthy security tool on the system. You should also stop visiting questionable websites and downloading software from them.
As iLotto has an uninstall in Control Panel, it is possible to remove it from the system rather easily. If you have never tried removing a program yourself, you can use our instructions which can be found below this article. Less experienced users or those who do not have time to implement the manual removal of this adware can also go for the automatic removal. All they need to do is to download and install SpyHunter and then perform the system scan. We suggest using this tool because we know that it will take care of all the existing infections in the blink of an eye and will not allow other threats to sneak onto the computer ever again.
