ProvenTactics

ProvenTactics is a browser toolbar which is installed as a browsers add-on. It is compatible with Internet Explorer and can be downloaded alongside free application or from its official website. The toolbar contains a search box and some additional buttons that enables the reader to access websites related to marketing. As to the search box provided by ProvenTactics, it is presented in order to enhance the user’s browsing experiences when trying to find information provided by marketing experts. If there is news about new marketing tactics, the toolbar automatically informs the user about it.

However, ProvenTactics can also be referred to as an adware application because it displays various advertisements. They can be links to advertising websites or in the form of pop-up messages. Once you come across a pop-up ad, do not click but close it immediately. Annoying pop-up messages are normally displayed in order to drive more traffic to a website and convert the clicks to money. However, there might be some cases when instead of a secure website, the user lands on a corrupted webpage, which, for example, is aimed at deceiving the user into buying some item or downloading a software program. Hence it is crucial to disregard various pop-up contents, especially if they are provided when some browser add-on or extension is present on the browser.

It is highly advisable to remove ProvenTactics as it may monitor your browsing sessions, retrieve URLs, and send the collected information to remote servers. The information collected by the toolbar is likely to be used for customized advertisements.

In order to remove ProvenTactics, a reliable spyware removal tool should be used as sometimes it is not enough to uninstall a program from the Add/Remove Programs or change the settings manually. A professional spyware removal program should also used in order to prevent drive-by download which can occur while browsing insecure websites.
