What is iLotto?
iLotto is an advertising-supported application (adware) that users often install themselves from its official website ilotto.com. People usually do that because they expect to win 1 000 000 dollars. We do not know whether the creators of this application are really ready to transfer money to the winner; however, we are sure that many users will find iLotto really annoying, because this program shows all kinds of advertisements on a user's screen. These ads are definitely not innocent. Specialists at anti-spyware-101.com say that they might even expose users to threats by redirecting them to hacked web pages. If you do not want to be one of the victims, we suggest removing this adware program from the system. We are sure that there are other ways to participate in a lottery. Therefore, we will help the readers of this article to delete the program easily and quickly.
How does iLotto work?
iLotto will be installed in C:\ProgramData, and it will create the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\iLotto. After doing that, it will start showing commercial advertisements on a user's screen. In fact, iLotto does not try to hide the fact that it is going to act like that, so users who willingly installed this program will not be surprised at all (of course, if they have read the information provided on the website carefully before downloading and installing this program). As our specialists have managed to find out, users who download and install this adware will mainly see in-text and interstitial ads. Of course, other kinds of ads might appear on the screen too, as indicated in the EULA:
Applications may be supported by in-text ads, interstitial ads, or other types of ads. Users may see additional ads when using their Internet browser or other software applications. We deliver the most relevant and highest quality ads possible, and make all reasonable efforts not to show ads that may be considered pornographic, promote violence or the use of firearms or contains obscene language.
Even though this adware promises to provide high-quality ads, we still suggest being very careful with them because you might still be taken to an untrustworthy third-party web page if you keep clicking on all of the commercials you see on the screen. Unfortunately, many users click on ads and do not even suspect that they might be harmful because they advertise interesting products and services mainly. Actually, all these advertisements are based on the information adware gathers about the user, so it is not surprising at all that these advertisements are appealing. Important information like banking credentials will not be recorded; however, we are sure that iLotto will record IP address, browsing history, the name of the Internet service provider, system time, browsers installed, and other details. This can be stopped only if you delete adware from the system.
Where does iLotto come from?
Like other advertising-supported applications, iLotto travels in software bundles together with other programs, which is why so many users cannot even explain how it has appeared on their systems. In some cases, advertising-supported applications are also installed on the systems after a user clicks on some kind of advertisement. Last but not least, other untrustworthy programs might download and install them on the system too, so it is a must to keep PC clean all the time. We believe that users should install a security tool on their systems ASAP if they wish to protect their computers from harm.
