Yayzap

Yayzap

Yayzap is an application that is closely associated with the website yayzap.com, which is known to be “an exciting gaming portal that offers tons of free games.” Users who wish to play games free of charge on this website, most probably, have to install the Yayzap application because the information at yayzap.com says that users will be granted access to free games in exchange for an agreement to install this piece of software only. If a user does that, he/she also agrees to see advertisements because Yayzap is known to be an ad-supported program. We cannot say that advertising-supported applications are extremely dangerous; however, it is known that they might put computers in danger. Therefore, we suggest that you remove adware from your computer and then start playing online games on a different website that does not require installing some kind of application. We will talk about the dangers Yayzap might pose to your computer in this report. Also, specialists working at anti-spyware-101.com will provide all the important information regarding the removal of this software for you. Read more »

NextFlix

NextFlix

NextFlix is an application that is said to give you the freedom to view region-blocked content by modifying your computer’s DNS settings. However, it also uses the DNS modifications to render commercial advertisements that are annoying and can also be dangerous, so you should remove this program. We have analyzed similar programs in the past, and some of them are linked with this particular application. We want to make you aware that it is a fake program that really does not give you access to region-restricted content. However, it secretly modifies your computer’s DNS settings to show unwelcome unasked for commercial advertisements. We have classified this application as adware and invite you to uninstall it after reading this decryption to reestablish your PC’s security because not all advertisements that are shown by it are safe.

The Maintenance Software

The Maintenance Software

It is most likely that you did not download The Maintenance Software as a standalone program due to the fact that this infection mainly spreads in malicious downloaders. If you find this application on your computer, it may indicate the presence of other malware infections, too. As a matter of fact, this program is totally useless for you since there is no maintenance function whatsoever. What it really does is that it displays potentially harmful third-party ads through your default browser, including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. Based on its capabilities, our malware specialists at anti-spyware-101.com have categorized it as an adware application. As such, it can be easily exploited by cyber criminals to inject corrupt ads and links into the displayed third-party pages. Clicking on any content provided by this adware could be detrimental to your system health and security. Therefore, we suggest that you remove The Maintenance Software as soon as possible and eliminate all other potentially risky applications as well to restore security on your PC. Read more »

Search Privacy

Search Privacy

Search Privacy is an extension that promises to “protect your privacy every time you search” if you download and install it. The extension can be downloaded from its homepage info.searchprivacy.co (Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer versions are available for download there) and the Chrome Web Store (chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/search-privacy/aeemepphecjaofoopdmhfahejdcnlpia). Judging from the rate of downloads, Search Privacy is not an extremely popular piece of software because Google Chrome users have downloaded it 18 225 times in total. Of course, everything might change quickly. We have to say that not all the users install this extension willingly. Researchers have revealed that this software might sneak onto computers without permission too. If you cannot remember downloading it too, remove Search Privacy without further consideration. Of course, you should also not keep it if you have installed Search Privacy yourself but do not find it useful at all. Fortunately, it will not be very difficult to erase the extension from browsers.

TapBreaker

TapBreaker

Even though TapBreaker is an adware application that should show ads in exchange for free premium games on TapBreaker.com, people who never visited the official program’s site could still have it on their computer. It is so because the software might be distributed through unreliable file-sharing web pages that bundle their installers with adware, browser hijackers, and other doubtful programs. If you find the displayed ads annoying, you should remove the adware from your system instead of ignoring them. The ads may come from malicious web pages that might collect your private data without asking or infect your system with malware. Therefore, our specialists at Anti-spyware-101.com advise users to delete the application before something bad happens. Users should not worry if they do not know how to do that because there will be a manual below the article. Read more »

GamesZing

GamesZing

Although GamesZing seems like an authentic and helpful game manager, this program does not actually help you play games. Yes, it does give you access to some games, but the main function of this program is to display advertisements. This program can do it all when it comes to online advertising. It collects information that is used for the development or selection of ads, it provides data to third-party advertisers, and it injects advertisements. It does that using an extension installed on your Internet Explorer browser, an app installed on the PC, and data-tracking tools (e.g., HTTP cookies) that are installed silently. If you are informed about the installation of cookies, you might choose to reject them, which is the move we recommend, but, in that case, you should remove GamesZing itself because its functionality decreases without them. In fact, we recommend deleting this adware regardless of the circumstances. Read more »

OhMyTabs

OhMyTabs

OhMyTabs’s developers claim that it offers a wide range of web browsing features, but all of them boil down to displaying unwelcome and intrusive commercial ads. So we recommend that you remove this application at your earliest convenience. In short, this application falls into the category of adware, and we want to stress that apart from showing ads it will not do anything else. Furthermore, we think that you should not trust its ads and refrain from clicking them because there is no way to tell whether the promoted links are safe. Read more »
