TasticSurf

TasticSurf is a browser add-on promoted at tasticsurf.net, which is akin to webspades.net, browsemark.net, and some other websites. The browser add-on is developed by SuperWeb LLC and works on Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. The application is categorized as an adware program just like WebSpades, BrowseMark, Surftastic, and Fortunitas. All these adware programs have similar official websites. The only significant difference among the websites is that their domain extensions vary (.org, .net, .info, .co).

TasticSurft is also distributed by the installers of other free applications; hence, it is highly advisable to pay close attention to every process of software installation in order not to skip important information. In case you have TasticSurf on your PC, we recommend that you remove it from the PC in order to avoid annoying pop-up advertisements.

The files of the application are placed in the ProgramFiles directory. Once installed, the application generate advertisements on numerous websites, including bestbuy.com, ebay.com, and amazon.com. While on commercial websites, you may find web banners and pop-up advertisements that have nothing to do with online shopping. TasticSurf advertisements are sent from several advertising servers, and the content of the advertisements depends on third parties that seek to drive more traffic to their websites. For example, you may be invited to scan a computer, update Internet browsers or media players, play online games, and the like.

TasticSurf does not accept responsibility for third parties’ actions and their products and services. Third parties have their privacy policies and terms of use, which you should review before making a purchase or clicking the download button. We recommend that you ignore pop-ups inviting you to take part in a contest, to download an update for some application or get involved in some other activity, because you may be easily deceived. What you should do once you find that TasticSurf is present on your PC is remove the application and shield the system from various computer threats. TasticSurf is not a computer infection; however, the websites that are advertized by this application may cause serious problems.

TasticSurf has its uninstaller, but we recommend that you implement a powerful spyware removal tool, especially if your computer is not protected against malware and spyware. Our advice is to use SpyHunter because it can remove TasticSurf in no time and make your browsing sessions much safer.
