Tracking Cookies

A cookie is usually benign, storing only the information required to make a specific website load faster. Tracking cookies, including ATDMT, record the websites that you visit and the advertisements that you click.

What ATDMT Does

In addition to tracking your Internet use, ATDMT causes pop-up ads to appear in your browser window and pop-under ads to open in new windows. ATDMT can change your home page and redirect you to pages loaded with advertisements and malware. ATDMT is capable of recording your keystrokes, which can reveal personal and financial information to third parties.

Removal

Manual removal involves restoring the registry files that the ATDMT cookie altered and removing the program files associated with the cookie. A complicated process that can damage your operating system if you make a mistake, removal is made harder by the difficulty of finding a full list of programs associated with ATDMT. The best removal option is to use antivirus software to scan your drives and repair the damage caused by the ATDMT cookie.
