BitAccelerator is classified as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) also known as Adware.BitAccelerator and BitAccelerator. BitAccelerator may present itself as a Browser Helper Object (BHO). In fact, the program is ad-supported meaning that adware features are typical for it. Even though, PUPs are not malicious threats, their prolonged presence in the system is associated with several issues.
Collection of private data and worsened PC/ browser performance are quite likely to happen. That is why the removal of BitAccelerator is recommended.
BitAccelerator Distribution Method
Potentially unwanted programs usually enter the system through bundled download. Bundling of software may not be illegal, but it often leads to unwanted downloads of adware and PUPs. It could be avoided if the user opts out of the automatic installer and always goes for the custom one. Under the ‘advanced’ option, he gets the chance to deselect any added pieces of software and thus avoid bundling.
As already mentioned, BitAccelator may be the reason for several issues on an affected machine:
- Addition of tracking cookies and gathering of personally identifiable information.
- Slowing down or crashing the browser, as well as the system itself.
- Slowing down the Internet speed.
Some experts are concerned that BitAccelerator is associated with computer worm invasions. Its removal is eagerly recommended.
