Malware experts categorize Super Radio toolbar as adware and a potentially unwanted program (PUP), as it not only changes your browser settings without your agreement, but it can also monitor and record your browsing activities and personal information.
What Is Super Radio?
Super Radio is a toolbar by ClientConnect Ltd., whose features may sound quite appealing to users indeed. It allows you to listen to music while browsing – you only need to select the music genre. It can also work as a live TV, e-mail notifier and even a weather forecast.
The problem is that these great features come in a package with some rather disturbing ones.
Super Radio’s Symptoms:
- It can enter your system bundled with other programs and without your consent although it has an official website where you can intentionally download it.
- Once installed, Super Radio changes your default browser settings and home page.
- Super Radio displays various pop-up ads that could be quite annoying and disturb your browsing routine.
- It has the capability of monitoring your online searches and moves, record them, and share that information along with personal data (such as your operation system, login information, etc.) to third parties.
How Is Super Radio Distributed?
As mentioned above, you can visit Super Radio’s official website and download the toolbar from there. However, you can still get it without even wanting it.
This is possible thanks to the bundling method – that’s when a free program is combined with other adware, malware, PUPs, etc. and by downloading the freeware, you receive everything else bundled with it.
The bundling method is neatly mentioned during the installation process: however, thanks to most users’ impatience to finish the downloading process, it remains unnoticed. Users simply miss to uncheck the unwanted programs and features, and bluntly trust the “recommended” or “default” installation settings.
Thus, in order to be safe from any unwanted programs and malware, watch out what you download. Opt for custom installation and disallow any features and programs you are not acquaint with.
Should You Remove Super Radio?
It is really up to you. You might decide that Super Radio’s features are useful to you, and you prefer to keep it. Only, keep in mind that clicking on any of the pop-ups may redirect you to potentially corrupted websites and this way you will expose your system to bigger threats from the Web.
