- Annoying Pop-up's
- Shows commercial adverts
- Connects to the internet without permission
PopToTop is a questionable application that claims to boost your browsing experience, but, instead, it seems to only boost the number of third-party advertisements and commercials that annoy you while surfing the waves of the web. These ads are not only like wave breakers for a web surfer, but they may also put your virtual security at risk by introducing you to unsafe third-party content. There are a couple things about this ad-supported program that make it rather suspicious, and therefore undesirable to have on your computer. We advise you to remove PopToTop before your problems multiply, which may already be the case since this adware rarely travels alone. Please read on to find out more about this infection so that you can make the right decision to handle the situation.
The first moment you feel that there may be something wrong with this application is when you should visit its official website at pop-to-top.com. We do not think that you have actually found this website yourself because it is not easy to bump into this URL. Anyway, this is more like a single and very simple webpage; however, the problem is not even that, but the fact that there is no way for you to download the program, even though the site mentions “download and install” as the first of three easy steps to use this “mysterious” application.
That usually leaves but one choice for an application to be distributed over the Internet, and that is software bundling. That is exactly how we have found this useless adware spreading: in bundles packed with other malware infections. So, if you have PopToTop on-board, it may easily mean that it is not alone as a threat to your Windows operating system. Deleting PopToTop cannot solve your problem in this case, and you will have to investigate further to find out if there is any other malware program on-board. We advise you to use a free online malware scanner that can identify these infections and report back to you.
PopToTop promises you a “much easier and comfortable way to browse the web.” However, it is much more likely that what you will experience is a littered computer screen filled with third-party ads, blocking your view. We do not recommend clicking on those ads because there is no guarantee that they are legitimate. There may be third parties that are not reviewed or controlled by the creators of this adware, so they can be anyone, even schemers. That means there may be ads that lead to suspicious or malicious websites. Once you land on such a page, you may be tricked into downloading some fake updater program or revealing your personal details. Believe us when we say that you had better delete PopToTop if you want to avoid the potential of visiting such sites by clicking on unreliable ads.
If you are ready to take matters into your own hands, here is what you have to do in order to handle the PopToTop infection situation. Find the application in the installed programs list in Control Panel and simply uninstall it. Does that sound simple enough? If not, you can use our guide below this article, which will assist you through the necessary steps. If you are still concerned that there may be other infections on-board, we recommend that you invest in an authentic, up-to-date antimalware tool that can safeguard your PC from all existing threats.
