Aartemis (you can also find it named as Aartemis.com virus) is an annoying application, which is used for promoting websites and programs that are related to it. Typically, it occupies all Internet browsers, including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, and alters several system settings. After that, you may notice changes in your start page and default search engine. The clearest sign that you have this program on your computer is continuous redirects to aartemis.com and similar sites. In addition, you may also notice continuous commercial ads and similar notifications that tell you about discounts, coupons and other deals. Please, don't leave Aartemis on your computer because it may force you to install potentially unwanted software or may initiate other problems.


Aartemis.com distribution is mostly related to freeware and shareware. This unfair distribution method is mostly called 'bundling' because people are not clearly notified that they will download it on their computers. That's why we always recommend paying more attention to the installation process of the freeware and unchecking all 'additional downloads', 'free additions' and similar things if you want to avoid aartemis.com. Otherwise, we can forecast that this program will take over your start page and default search engine. Besides, Aartemis virus may also initiate redirections and pop-up ads when you are searching on the Internet. You may be redirected to unknown sites, see annoying commercial ads or simply notice slow downs on your browsers. If you want to avoid these things, you should remove Aartemis from your computer. Here is a guide for that:
