- Annoying Pop-up's
- Shows commercial adverts
- Connects to the internet without permission
If you have started seeing more third-party commercial content whenever you browse such online retailers as Amazon, Ebay, Walmart, and others, it is possible that your system is infected with Kikblaster. You should remove this advertising-supported program at once if you do not want to keep seeing pop-ups, banners, in-text ads, and other forms of online advertising that have the potential to turn out to be unreliable. It is never a good idea to click the promoted links while Kikblaster is on your system, because you might get easily redirected to sites that have been set up to distribute malware. Also, do not forget to take into account that Kikblaster reaches computers mainly via indirect distribution channels. If that is not enough to convince you to delete this adware app from your PC, please continue reading this article.
Like most unwanted and potentially dangerous programs, Kikblaster relies on software bundles to spread around the web. As adware is universally disliked due to the security issues it might present, there is no hope for Kikblaster to be downloaded directly. Thus, this program hides behind other programs, generally freeware and shareware, to increase the chance of being installed. In most cases, computer users download free programs and rush through the whole installation process without paying any attention to the installation steps, especially the ones where the additional components are listed. The result: Kikblaster and some other potentially dangerous programs residing on your PC. You can easily avoid such cases when you need to remove multiple threats; all you need to do is be more selective in terms of your software choices and more attentive during the installation procedure.
If you think that Kikblaster is mainly preoccupied with sending third-party ads to your screen, you are wrong. It is also known that this adware program might collect such information as IP address, browsing history, search queries, and other supposedly marketing-related data to improve the services this program provides. We think that the idea of some suspicious third-parties using Kikblaster to collect information about your online activities is too worrying. So, follow the instructions below to remove this adware without running into unexpected complications.
It is important that you delete Kikblaster, because there is always the potential that you will be served high-risk third-party content. Thankfully, you can get rid of this program just like any other program on your system; all you need to do is access Control Panel. However, it is possible that the manual removal might not be as thorough as you would expect. Kikblaster might still leave registry entries, tracking cookies, helper applications, and other leftovers that can be deleted only by means of legitimate antispyware software.
