It’s been a while since we have discussed a SuperWeb application. Clock Hand is a new adware program from the SuperWeb family that enters your computer with the intention to make money for its creators. Unlike rogues or ransomware applications, Clock Hand does not try to steal your money directly. Nevertheless, that is no reason to keep this app on your PC, so the sooner you remove Clock Hand, the better. Bear in mind that adware programs always travel in packs, so you need to scan your PC with a licensed antispyware tool to search for other potential threats.
Clock Hand functions as a browser helper object (for Internet Explorer) or browser extension (for Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. The official website via myclockhand.com maintains that this application is compatible with all the major browsers, although our security researchers say that newer Google Chrome versions can easily block Clock Hand extension. It is necessary to block this add-on because Clock Hand can collect data on your web browsing habits. It cannot gather information that would allow it to identify you personally, but all the data this program collects is used for online marketing.
Some users think that Clock Hand is a malicious infection, although it is clear to see that it is very far from the truth. Not to mention that Clock Hand does not enter your system surreptitiously. As mentioned above, it is a SuperWeb application, and all the other programs from this family (like Key Lime Lizard, Rad Rater, Dynamo Combo, etc.) are known to be distributed in software bundles. This means that you most probably installed Clock Hand along with other freeware apps accidentally, when you downloaded some program from a third-party website. Think back to everything you have downloaded recently: have you read all the installation steps carefully? If not, chances are that you definitely installed Clock Hand yourself.
This application promises to improve your online browsing experience, but we know better than that because it is very far from the truth. Clock Hand will spam you with ads that are labeled as “Ads by Clock Hand” or “Provided by Clock Hand.” If you notice a lot of commercial ads with such labels on your screen, then you definitely have this adware program installed on your PC.
Although adware programs are not direct computer security threats, you should not rule out the possibility that Clock Hand could be exploited by malevolent developers. If you want to protect your PC and your personal data, you have to remove Clock Hand right now.
It is not hard to remove Clock Hand on your own, but even after manual removal you should make use of a computer security program of choice to see whether your system is absolutely safe. For any further questions, do not hesitate to leave us a comment.
