VKAudio

VKAudio

VKAudio is an application that is targeted at those who live in Russia and have the account on Vkontakte (one of the most popular social-networking sites in Russia). It says that it will enable users to “search, add and listen to your favorite music in popup for free, even offline.” In other words, it should allow users to listen to the music stored in the libraries of Vkontakte while browsing other websites. Sadly, the program is not as beneficial as it claims to be. In fact, researchers working at anti-spyware-101.com know it as an ad-supported program (adware). Yes, it will, most probably, show irritating commercial advertisements on users’ screens. They might ruin your browsing session completely and even expose you to potential threats. Thus, it is definitely worth uninstalling this adware from the system. Continue reading to find out how to do that easily and quickly. Read more »

Bugfixxer Ads

Gamevance Ads

Gamevance Ads

Gamevance Ads can show up on the Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome browsers. The ads are displayed through the Gamevance software that our specialists at Anti-spyware-101.com categorized as an adware application.

LastPass

LastPass

LastPass is the name of a fake Google Chrome browser extension that may introduce you to potentially harmful web content and applications through redirections.

ExpoDating

ExpoDating is a potentially unwanted program (PUP) that might have been created to advertise third-party content, e.g. websites, products, services, and so on.

Naturally, it is possible that you will receive more harm than benefits. In fact, ExpoDating is not an application that you could consider useful because it only displays matchseniors.com and suspicious third-party ads.

Search Expanse

Search Expanse

Although promoted as a useful search tool, Search Expanse is not something you should install onto your web browsers or your computer. According to Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers, this suspicious program can be installed onto the computer and browsers; however, the official installer at searchexpanse.com only presents an extension for Google Chrome. This suggests that unpredictable and potentially dangerous versions of this program exist. The extension we have analyzed is classified as an advertising-supported program because it is capable of showing ads. Although it is unlikely that other versions will function in a different way than that, we still recommend erasing them from your operating system. If it is not clear why you need to delete Search Expanse from your browsers/PC, you should continue reading. We have recently analyzed this threat in our internal lab, and we can identify all security risks associated with this threat. Read more »
