Where does LolliScan come from?

Users often think that programs like LolliScan are dangerous computer viruses because they do not notice how such apps enter their systems. This happens because LolliScan and other similar applications employ a distribution method that is called bundling. This means that adware applications usually enter target computers in software packages when users download freeware and shareware from file sharing websites. It might also happen that the shareware download is initialized accidentally when a user clicks a fake download button or a wayward link.

As far as LolliScan’s origins are concerned, our research team suggests that LolliScan is a direct clone of the PicColor and FlashBeat adware applications. All of these programs are based on the same Superfish engine, and some of their files are the same as well. This also means that LolliScan can be removed just like its predecessors.

What does LolliScan do?

Since LolliScan is a genuine adware program, then, disregarding any specific features it might boast of, the main thing it does is display commercial ads. In order to figure out what kind of content must be embedded into the commercial ads, LolliScan will also track your web browsing habits.

It should be pointed out that such activity is not illegal just because most of the websites employ cookies to keep track of what pages you access. However, the problem arises from the fact that LolliScan is highly vulnerable to third-party exploitation, so all the personally non-identifiable data collected about your web browsing history might be leaked to cyber criminals.

As a result, LolliScan might start displaying ads that contain outgoing links to dangerous sites. It is obvious that you should NEVER click those links if you do not want to get infected with malware. You must remove LolliScan right now and then check for other unwanted apps that might be present on your computer.

How do I remove LolliScan?

It should be possible to delete LolliScan via Control Panel. However, manual removal may not be enough to ensure that all the adware-related files are removed from your system. Thus, get yourself a licensed computer security tool that will terminate any remaining files or registry entries, and your system will be protected from harm.
