Super Speedup 2018

Super Speedup 2018

We install PC optimization tools expecting that they will clean our systems. Unfortunately, not all of them do what they promise to do. Super Speedup 2018 is presented as a useful tool “designed and tested with utmost care to keep your PCs running smooth, fast and error free” as well; however, if you install this piece of software on your computer, you will see for yourself that this program is not free. In other words, it will not clean and optimize the system for you for free. In other words, Super Speedup 2018 works as a diagnostic tool unless upgraded, which, in fact, many users do not know before they click the Download Now button on the official application’s website http://winboost.site/. The program is not free, we can assure you that, so if you are looking for a tool that would clean and optimize your system free of charge, there is surely no point in installing Super Speedup 2018. You should not install its clones (e.g. Power Cleaner 2018, Win Speedup 2018, and Speedy SystemCare) on your computer as well because they are not free tools. Have you already installed Super Speedup 2018 on your system? Make sure you do not keep it installed if you are not going to upgrade it. We see no reason you should keep useless programs installed on the system. Read more »

btc@fros.cc Ransomware

btc@fros.cc Ransomware

If you are unlucky enough to face btc@fros.cc Ransomware, you need to take action right away. If you are able to uncover the disguise of this malicious threat quickly, you just might be able to delete the launcher file before the infection is fully executed. The threat is likely to be introduced to you with the help of software bundles or spam emails, and so you might have a chance to eliminate the file. If you do not realize that a seemingly harmless file you downloaded and opened belongs to malware, the malicious infection can move on to encrypt your personal files. Once they are encrypted, you cannot rename them or change them in any way to make them readable again. The decryptor that the creator of the ransomware should produce, could not have been obtained, and legitimate file decryptors are powerless against the cryptor of this malware. So, if your files were encrypted, you are in a very sticky situation. All in all, regardless of the outcome, it is a must to remove btc@fros.cc Ransomware, and that is what we discuss in this report.

Rush Music Search

Rush Music Search

Has your default search provider been changed to Rush Music Search out of the blue? If so, it is very likely that this has happened not without reason. The majority of users whose search engines are changed to this search tool install the browser extension named Rush Music Search on their computers themselves. Some of them download it from http://livemediasearch.systems, which is the extension’s official website, or directly from the Chrome Web Store, whereas others cannot even explain how this piece of software has managed to enter their computers. The Rush Music Search extension is presented as a useful tool for those who wish to perform music searches right from their web browsers’ URL bar, but we cannot confirm that it will really improve your web browsing experience. Also, you need to know that your web browser’s settings will be changed if you install Rush Music Search. If you are not ready for that, you should choose another program for performing music searches on the web. In case you have already installed Rush Music Search and found your default search provider changed, you could only undo the changes applied by deleting Rush Music Search from the system completely. You should take care of all other undesirable/unknown applications active on your system at the same time because they may cause you problems. Read more »

Gator

Tracking cookies are not considered serious threats, so do not freak out if you ever find one of them on your system. Gator is one of the thousands of tracking cookies that exist in the world. It is already quite old (it was detected in 2010), but some users might still encounter it. If you can locate it next to other cookies on the web browser you use, it is very likely that it was placed there some time ago. It is not considered malicious, but it might be used to keep/record some information about you, so feel free to remove Gator from your system to put an end to this activity. We cannot confirm that Gator is actively used to collect information these days since it is quite old, but it would not be worse if you remove it from your web browser. Tracking cookies might be placed on all users’ browsers, including Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome. Luckily, users have the full freedom to manage all cookies themselves. We would suggest eliminating those that have been dropped on your system after visiting shady websites immediately. Instructions provided below will help you to get rid of Gator and all other undesirable browsing cookies manually. Read more »

Bridgetrack

The Bridgetrack cookie is a piece of data that has been employed to track users’ activity since at least 2009. It can record the user’s geographical location, as well as search history and interaction with virtual content. All of this information is supposed to help the service provider and advertising companies working along with it to present more personalized content. In some cases, this is not a good thing as malicious parties can use cookies to figure out what intrigues potential targets. This could be used to deliver scams successfully.

Perfect PC Cleanup

Perfect PC Cleanup

Perfect PC Cleanup is a program that is advertised as a system optimizer. The name suggests that it is somehow superior to other available optimizers, but although it is deemed to be “perfect,” our research team warns that it is just a PUP (potentially unwanted program) that cannot meet your expectations. If you go to perfectpccleanup.com to learn more about this program, you might be convinced that it can clean up space, fix issues, provide protection against malware, enhance PC performance, and remove junk. It all sounds great, and for a price of $19.99, the PUP might truly seem like the perfect tool. It is not. For one, you definitely cannot rely on this program to protect you against malware. Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers have tested the program on an infected computer, and it failed to find real threats. When it comes to other features, the application cannot offer anything too spectacular either, and that is why we recommend deleting Perfect PC Cleanup without further hesitation. Keep reading to learn more. Read more »

BlueMountain

You do not need to remove BlueMountain from your system because it is not malicious and it will not cause any harm to you, but, of course, you have the freedom to eliminate this tracking cookie if its presence bothers you a lot or you simply do not trust it. BlueMountain is, technically, not intruder either even though you do not know anything about its appearance because it is very likely that you have agreed that it would be dropped on the system yourself. It is hard to say the exact website you have visited, but it is very likely that BlueMountain is closely associated with https://www.bluemountaingroup.co.uk/ and https://www.bluemountain.com/. Legitimate websites inform users about the use of cookies and allow users to manage them. Of course, not all the users remember clicking the Accept Cookies button themselves. As a consequence, not all of them know why certain cookies are listed under the Cookies category on their web browsers. A bunch of users cannot explain why BlueMountain has been dropped on their systems too, and there is nothing surprising about that. BlueMountain is not considered to be malicious, but you can delete it from the system if you want to. Read more »

Xnxx

You need to be extremely selective about the cookies that are embedded in your web browsers because malicious ones exist too. The Xnxx cookie is our main focus in this report. Cookies are pieces of data that record information that can be both personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable. The data is stored by the cookie so that whenever the user revisits the website, some data is already available. This data might include preferences, language settings, time zone, geo-location, and browsing history. Using this data, the website might be capable of presenting the visitor with a more relevant and personalized experience. For example, if you revisit an online shopping website, you might find recently viewed items, and shopping suggestions might reflect your previous browsing history. In most cases, cookies are harmless and even useful, but some are more intrusive and might require removal. Anti-Spyware-101.com research team recommends deleting Xnxx cookie because it can monitor activity and, potentially, record highly sensitive information. Continue reading to learn more. Read more »
