- Annoying Pop-up's
- Shows commercial adverts
- Connects to the internet without permission
Our computer security experts say that Cleanignite is a standard adware application. It does not do anything useful and just displays annoying commercial ads. You are strongly recommended to remove Cleanignite from your computer as soon as possible because adware programs cannot be trusted. It is very common that such applications get exploited by cyber criminals to display malicious content. In other words, if you don’t delete Cleanignite on time, you could end up getting infected with malware. Then you would have to waste your time trying to get rid of really dangerous applications.
Luckily, you can avoid that from happening by staying away from adware-related websites and other file sharing pages that distribute freeware and shareware. When it comes to Cleanignite and similar applications, they rarely get distributed directly. For example, the website cleanignite.com does not offer any working download link. Click the “Download Now!” button merely redirects you to the same page. Instead of an actual download link, the site opens a lot of pop-ups that offer you to fill out various surveys or download media player upgrade packages. Needless to say, you should never do that because then it would be even harder to remove all the potential threats that manage to enter your system.
Since it is impossible to download Cleanignite at the official website, we can assume that this application travels bundled with freeware. Thus, there is a good chance that users aren’t even aware of the fact they install this adware application on their computers when they set up some shareware app.
As far as the official stance is concerned, Cleanignite is supposed to help you clear your browsing history, consequently speeding up your browser. To be honest, it is very peculiar as to why one would need an application that would clean your browsing history, when you can actually do it yourself through browser settings menu. As mentioned above, Cleanignite does not even perform any of the functions it boasts of, so there is no need to keep it. In other words, the sooner you delete this application, the better.
What’s more, if you allow this program to remain on your computer, you will be flooded with countless commercial ads that will display customized content. Clicking any of the ads would do you no good because Cleanignite is not responsible for the ad security, so some of the links in the ads might inadvertently lead you to dangerous websites. These websites could host a number of malicious infections that are really hard to delete manually. Thus, you should definitely stay away from them.
Save yourself the trouble of dealing with potential computer infections by removing Cleanignite today. After manual removal, scan your computer with the SpyHunter free scanner to see whether you have more unwanted programs (it is very likely that you do). Get rid of them all automatically and make sure your system stays protected 24/7.
