PredictAd

PredictAd is a potentially unwanted program which is also known as Adware.PredictAd. The application might filter search results in order to boost traffic to sites which are based on promotional content. In some cases, the browser widget might be beneficial; however, on most instances, it is highly irritating to browse the web with promotional information forced upon you. What is more, the application can be installed onto the computer without your consent. This might happen if you download freeware which hides bundled software. All in all, it is recommended to have PredictAd removed from the browsers in order to experience safe Internet browsing.

Even though PredictAd is promoted at predictad.com, it is usually downloaded alongside such programs as 7art Nature Screensaver. Once you choose to install the application onto the computer, you are introduced to an installation setup which asks for your permission to activate AutoComplete Pro. It is promised that the program will speed your web searches, provide quick links and help with translation. Even though the program sounds beneficial, you should un-tick the box confirming its installation. If you do not, the home page of your existing browsers will be changed to search.autocompletepro.com and the search engine of Mozilla Firefox will be set as ACPro. What is more, the application will gain power to track your browsing habits. An excerpt from the AutoComplete Pro Privacy Policy:

In order to identify the computer you are browsing from and provide it with customized services, we store a few cookies on your computer. A cookie is a small text file which contains some information which may only be read by us and contains the following information: (i) your last few searches, (ii) your personal settings, (iii) your country and state and (iv) whether you chose private browsing mode or not.

If you do not want this suspicious program to spy on your virtual activities or flood you with various ads, it would be best to delete it from the computer and your browsers. It is strongly recommended to install authentic security tools onto your computer to scan the PC and check if there are no dangerous programs which are running on the computer and which require removal. We recommend installing SpyHunter to delete PredictAd and to safeguard the operating system against similar adware programs. Alternatively, you can use the manual instructions below.
