YouTube Accelerator

YouTube Accelerator is a desktop application which enables computer users to quickly access YouTube videos. The application is said to be capable of eliminating buffering issues, but the truth is that it only loads videos that have lower video quality. YouTube Accelerator is available at youtubeaccelerater.com; moreover, it may be bundled with other programs, which is one of the reasons why the application is categorized as a potentially unwanted program (PUP).

YouTube Accelerator provides its YouTube videos in a browser window whose URL reads home.speedbit.com. The application does not install any browser extension but runs system services in the background.

It has been found that YouTube Accelerator is bundled with SpeedUpMyComputer by SmartTweakSoftware and Shopper Pro. ShopperPro and YouTube Accelerator are created by the same company, Goobzo, Ltd. If you want to prevent search-based coupons and advertisements, you should remove ShopperPro from your browsers once you find that your Internet Explorer and other browsers contains this adware program.

If you want to remove YouTube Accelerator from the PC, you have probably found that the application changes the settings of the browsers. More specifically, it replaces your home page and default search provider with Tuvaro, or www-search.net. You have a chance to prevent changes on the browsers by deselecting a checkbox provided by the installer, which means that you have to pay close attention to the installation process. If you were to implement SpyHunter to find out what undesirable programs are present within the system, you would find that the Tuvaro application is detected as a browser hijacker.

Since YouTube Accelerator is available at no charge, by installing it, you agree to be provided with advertisements. YouTube Accelerator ads are likely to be related to online shopping, including price comparison information, coupons, special deals and cash back rewards. YouTube Accelerator is associated with none of the third parties advertised; hence, you download applications and order services and goods at your own risk. Before making purchases or downloading applications, you should find out whether the website is reliable and only when act accordingly. Websites promoted by YouTube Accelerator pop-ups may provide you with inappropriate content, which means that you should be very careful when interacting with various pop-up ads.

Below you will find our instructions on how to remove YouTube Accelerator form your computer. If you want to be certain that the computer contains no files associated with the potentially unwanted program, implement SpyHunter. This real-time security program will remove YouTube Accelerator and shield the system from various computer threats.
