TankGripHook is a worthless application that is a simple money-maker for its creators who used the well-known JustPlugIt platform to develop a new member in the Multiplug family of ad-supported programs. This adware might pose a threat to the health and safety of your operating system, not to mention the additional threats that may be distributed together with this application. Not being aware of the potential dangers you might be exposed to can result in even more infections, to say the least. Our malware specialists advise you to remove TankGripHook from your PC as soon as you can, if you do not want to jeopardize your virtual security.

There is no official website where you could directly download this program from, but this is nothing new. All the members of this adware family, including KelticTurners, RandomDealApp, and MicroChallenger, are mostly spread via infamous third-party installers, such as InstallRex and Amonetize. These installers may include malware programs in their bundles. Of course, this does not mean that you cannot trust or download any freeware anymore. This simply means that you need to be careful where you download your software from. These shady bundles are usually hosted on suspicious P2P and torrent websites. It is quite easy to accidentally click on a fake download button if you are not familiar with the structure or features of the site. Most users get infected this way. That is why it is a wise decision to scan your computer for possible threats after deleting TankGripHook.

This adware has no beneficial function at all. It is a simple ad-supported program that is designed to generate revenue based on the pay-per-click system. TankGripHook fills your computer screen with all kinds of advertisements, including banner ads and pop-up ads. The more third-party ads you click on, the more money the creators get paid. Therefore, they will try to trick you by presenting you with customized ads. It is really no big deal to show you commercials about products or deals you may be interested in since this adware can collect all the necessary data from your browsing history and web cookies. However, schemers like to utilize the vulnerabilities of adware programs and browsers in order to lure unsuspecting users onto their infected or fake websites. Landing on such sites could end up pretty bad to your privacy or the security of your operating system. That is why we strongly advise you against keeping TankGripHook on your computer.

If you want to remove TankGripHook, first, you need to uninstall it via Control Panel, and then, delete the extensions from your browsers. However, you do not need to take care of Internet Explorer since the uninstaller manages that for you. Please, follow the guide below not to miss any important step. But even when you are done with the manual removal, you cannot be certain that your system is completely free of threats. That is why we recommend the use of a professional antimalware tool that can detect and erase all known malware infections. For full protection, keep your security software updated.
