What is AdStopper?

Have you downloaded AdStopper yourself from its official website? Have you acquired this program using the services of a third-party vendor? Have you found it installed without your permission? Unfortunately, all three of these scenarios are possible, and it is very important to figure out which one fits your situation. If you have downloaded this program willingly using the official installer, it is unlikely that you will be in any trouble. However, if you have trusted unfamiliar vendors or if this program was downloaded silently by malicious, intrusive installers, you might be in serious trouble. The official publisher of this ad-blocker is BrowseTech, Inc. (or Browsetech LCC); however, other parties could be involved as well, and these are the parties that we are worried about. If you are not sure whether or not you should be worried, read this report. We explain all of the risks associated with this program, as well as shown how to remove AdStopper.testtesttest

How does AdStopper work?

AdStopper acts like Adblocker, and it promises two different things: To block ads while browsing and to speed up your browser by 30%. This application is compatible with the newest Windows versions, as well as all of the popular web browsers, including Microsoft Edge. According to the information provided at, this program can stop advertisers from spying on you, increase website load speed, as well as stop malicious advertisements. Our analysts at warn that this program works reliably, but only if you install it from its official website. According to the official information, third-party vendors can promote this program as well, and you have to be very cautious about that. What if these vendors have malicious intentions? What if they bundle this potentially unwanted program together with far more harmful infections? Of course, this depends on the vendor, and we are sure that reliable vendors do exist. Malicious installers, on the other hand, are not to be trusted under any circumstances. If you have acquired the PUP packaged with malware, make sure you eliminate it ASAP.

Regardless of how AdStopper has entered your operating system, at first, you will be introduced to the trial version. 7 days are given to every user to decide whether or not they like the application and they want to continue using it. Once the time runs out, you are asked to pay for the services (starting at $2.99 per month) or upgrade to the free version that includes additional search tools. If you choose the latter option, will replace your regular search provider, homepage, and even the new tab. This search tool shows ordinary search results, and it is capable of showcasing sponsored links as well. Although it is quite strange for a search tool associated with an ad-blocker to show ads, it is not any different from other popular search tools out there. Of course, if you do not want to see ads when searching for information, you can delete this search tool. Was this search tool installed without your permission? If it was, you should suspect the activity of a malicious installer, as well as the presence of malicious third-party programs that, most likely, deserve removal as well.
