The reason for those advertisements is most likely adware or PUP that has been installed on its own or in a software package. SurfSpeedMonitor (http://surfspeedmonitor.com/) may be regarded as an ad-supported application. Users who have it running on their machines may witness the display of ads that are sponsored by SurfSpeedMonitor. As visible in the website’s Privacy Policy, SurfSpeedMonitor may gather sensitive information from the user and provide it to third parties. Thus, its uninstallation is advisory.

SurfSpeedMonitor General Description

On its official website, SurfSpeedMonitor is advertised as a free application that enhances surfing on the Internet. A download button saying ‘100% Free Download!’ is situated on the home page. However, when we attempted downloading the app, nothing happened.

Nonetheless, information-wise, the application may be considered troublesome. If you have it installed on your browser without being initially asked, you may have downloaded it alongside free software product. The method is known as bundling and is widely prevalent in third party development and marketing.
