How Did I Install DeleteAd?

What is Product Bundling?

In the software world, the user encounters bundling when he skips the advanced option upon the installation of a software product. delete-ad-removal

To avoid such downloads that tend to be suspicious despite the fact they are legal, just remember to opt out of the automatic installer. Also, make sure to read the EULA, Download Agreement, Privacy Statement, etc. Quickly clicking the Next button without fully reading or understanding what is offered to you is never a good idea.

→DeleteAd may also be promoted on both legitimate and suspicious download websites. The application’s description may appear luring to some users as it promises them to stop the display of pop-up windows. Always keep in mind that there are legitimate and proven tools that stop pop-up content without putting the user’s PC at any risk.

Is DeleteAd Dangerous to My PC?

As already mentioned, the app drops an exe file when installed. DeleteAd.exe may become an issue since it is likely distributed through a pay-per-install bundle. Once running on a system, it may become vulnerable to other, malicious threats. Third party software is also known to slow down the system and perform unauthorized changes to the Registry. All in all, security researchers agree that DeleteAd should be removed so that further issues are avoided.

Should I Remove DeleteAd?
