Foxwebber is one of those potentially unwanted applications that get categorized as adware. Users often install this program on their computers willingly albeit unwittingly. They do not realize that by downloading programs from unfamiliar websites they risk installing a number of potential threats onto their computers. Foxwebber may not be a computer virus, but it does not mean that you should keep it on your computer. It is important that you remove Foxwebber and all the other potential threats immediately. If you do not know how to uninstall unwanted programs manually, scroll down to the bottom of this article for manual software removal instructions.
Technically, there is nothing new about Foxwebber. Our research shows that the application is based on JustPlugIt engine, which puts it into the same basket with LuckyCoupon, RealDeal, SaveNShop, SaveON, and countless others. All of these adware applications are also known as the semi-random name adware. This means that Foxwebber and its predecessors generate their entry names in Control Panel at random. While you can still recognize the program’s name, some of the letters in the title can be randomly capitalized. This does not come in the way when you need to delete this application.
What is more, Foxwebber cannot be downloaded directly. This program is apparently distributed via InstallRex, Vittalia, and Amonetize installers. Users encounter these installers on third-party file sharing and torrent websites. Perhaps you may not be entirely aware of the fact that you are about to download adware onto your PC, but it happens quite often when users click fake download links. Whenever you download freeware from third-party websites, you can be sure that you will have a lot more than just Foxwebber to remove. In other words, you can avoid dealing with a bunch of unwanted applications if you are careful enough during freeware installation.
Foxwebber does not seem to be functioning properly as of late, but it does not mean that the program is completely harmless. It may still collect information on what websites you visit and what you search for on the web. Sooner or later, you could be exposed to Foxwebber ads that pop up into your screen whenever you access BestBuy, eBay, Amazon, and other popular online stores. You have to get rid of these pop-ups and the application itself because cyber criminals might exploit the pop-ups to redirect you to malware-related websites.
Delete Foxwebber manually via Control Panel and then scan your computer with the SpyHunter free scanner. You should not hesitate to invest in a licensed antispyware tool because your computer security should be your utmost priority.
