What is QuizScope?

QuizScope is a free application promoted on quizscope.com. Users who install it willingly on their systems expect that it will provide “customized horoscope readers” because it promises to do that on its official website. Unfortunately, specialists have not noticed that it does that, so there is a slight possibility that it has been created for completely different purposes. In the opinion of specialists at anti-spyware-101.com, QuizScope has been developed to work as an advertising-supported application (adware). In other words, it should show advertisements promoting third-party web pages, different products, and services. It is quite risky to keep an ad-supported program installed because it is known that they might cause harm to computers during the time. Luckily, it is quite easy to remove an adware program from the system. Of course, users who are going to do that for the first time might face some difficulties. Therefore, it would be best that you read this article from beginning to end before you take any actions.testtest

How does QuizScope act?

QuizScope is quite a simple application, and it usually installs the extension for Internet Explorer only; however, specialists have still noticed that it applies quite many changes. For example, it adds its main the folder in C:\Users\user\AppData\Local, and it creates several new registry keys: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\QuizScope.Control, HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\QuizScope.Control.1, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\explorer\Browser Helper Objects\{D0405B37-CB13-4185-B08B-17CF898DD4C2}, and others. It is possible to notice these changes only if a user accesses the Registry Editor. Of course, users who have this adware installed will also notice a new extension in the list of add-ons.

At first glance, QuizScope looks like a trustworthy program; however, we cannot call it like that for one simple reason – it is going to display advertisements on a user’s screen in exchange for its service, i.e. for providing users with daily horoscope. It is very likely that you will see pop-ups, pop-unders, transitional ads, shopping ads, and coupons. All these ads contain links inside them, so users will be immediately taken to another website after clicking on any of those advertisements. QuizScope is definitely not responsible for these external links and their safety, which means that you might be taken to some kind of unreliable web page too. We are sure that you do not want to encounter malicious software, which is why we suggest that you do not pay attention to ads you see on your screen and hurry to remove the program that displays them.

We do not think that QuizScope can be trusted 100% because this application is also going to record the personal information. Of course, you will have to provide it first, for example, by contacting the customer support. Researchers have managed to find out that this application is also going to record non-personally identifiable information. It is primarily interested in your browsing data. Fortunately, you can stop this program. All you need to do is to get rid of it.

Where does QuizScope come from?

The majority of people download this application from quizscope.com; however, some people also get it from other third-party websites, or it sneaks onto computers bundled with other applications. Unfortunately, QuizScope is definitely not the only program that might find ways to sneak onto computers secretly. Therefore, we highly recommend that you install a security tool on your PC to protect it from harm. You should not download programs from third-party websites too because malicious software tends to hide on these websites mainly.
