Improve your online experience and avoid malware.
Those pesky ads aren’t just an annoyance anymore. Thanks to the rise in a practice known as “malvertising,” the ads themselves can contain malicious software that infects your network, roots around to steal your contact list for spamming purposes, and more. In a delicious case of irony, not long after Forbes.com forced users to turn off their ad blockers in order to read their content, one of its own ads was rife with malware.
Of course, online advertising is a necessary evil. After all, it’s what makes the internet affordable and some content free. Search engine giant Google has even gone so far as to require sites to move their ads over if they want to be featured in the first few pages of search results, meaning no more mobile-optimized pages with giant popups and sidebar ads blocking the content and slowing down the load rate, although this only applies to handhelds.
Fortunately, there are software downloads you can deploy that will make the browsing and content experience better; even better, there are inexpensive and easy to use tools that will remove any problems already infecting your system. Ultra Adware Killer is a great solution for removing unwanted content that came bundled with a chosen download, such as toolbars, add-ons, extensions, and much more. It even handles threats like hijacked home pages and unwanted search providers, helping to secure your privacy and avoid unwanted information gathering.
Best of all, it’s fast. You run a scan with the easiest of mouse clicks to the visible start button, and within a couple of minutes Ultra Adware Killer has isolated all the discovered threats. Removing them is as easy as clicking to remove, with no hunting through your uninstall options.
Easily reset preferences
There’s another little feature that some users will enjoy, and that’s the option to automatically reset your preferences in Chrome and Firefox at the touch of a button. Again, there’s no need to go hunting through your options and reverting everything one by one. Just tell the software to go back to your preferences and you’re done. This is especially useful if a download installed a toolbar or changed your settings without your knowledge.
If you’re running a multi-user computer, like a shared workstation in a small business or a home version with different family member profiles, there’s no need to run separate scans under each login. Ultra Adware Killer is powerful enough to root out the threats and remove them while under one profile, which is a great feature if you have some users on the network who keep accidentally installing new plugins and toolbars.
Kind to your PC
The software is lightweight enough not to chew up space or slow down your computer, but still strong enough to get rid of the junk at the click of a button. At the same time, it’s not a once-and-done optionless tool; each item is offered up for review under the PUP list prior to manual removal, so you won’t be getting rid of anything you actually did want to install.
