Pop Bubbles

Do not mistake Pop Bubbles for a fun or useful program. This is an advertising-supported program that was created for one single reason, which is to show ads. If you interact with the ads displayed, the creator of this suspicious adware will generate a profit, which is why it is not surprising that they are willing to do everything to showcase attractive offers. The problem is that not all ads shown are reliable, and interacting with them might be dangerous. According to our research, this adware is identical to Search Window, Splendor Search, Bronze Aid, and other suspicious programs created using the Injekt engine. Since all of these programs require removal, it is not surprising that it is necessary to remove Pop Bubbles as well. If you are not familiar with this family of ad-supported programs, and you do not know why they are considered unreliable, you should continue reading.

Although popbubblessoftware.com was created to represent Pop Bubbles, it is unlikely that many users will be familiar with this page, considering that it does not offer an installer. This ad-supported program is most likely to be promoted via third-party installers that could bundle other unreliable programs along with adware. In some cases, depending on the installer, malware could slither in silently. Unfortunately, this means that malicious programs could be active on your PC even if you are not aware of this yet. Some users might be able to identify malware corrupting their computers manually, but most users will require the help of a legitimate malware scanner. Do not hesitate to install this tool because it is imperative to know which threats are occupying your operating system. If you remain oblivious, you might miss your chance to delete seriously dangerous infections that could do a lot of damage.

Pop Bubbles is compatible with Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers. The Firefox extension is represented by a file called “firefox@www.popbubblessoftware.com.xpi,” and the IE extension is operated using a DLL file called “02b98cbc-7c59-4e41-a2b9-feea86a267fe.dll”. Both of these files – along with 7za.exe and Uninstaller.exe, which are generic Injekt adware files – are located in the same folder under %ProgramFiles% (or %ProgramFiles(x86)%). The folder containing these files is named after the ad-supported program, and you should not have any trouble identifying it. According to our research, the files of this program can also be found under %Temp%\Pop Bubbles. Although it is not difficult to remove these files, most users fail to recognize the registry keys that are created in the Windows Registry. We have created a removal guide that shows how to eliminate both files and registry keys; however, this is not your only option.

Learning how to eliminate malware manually is an important skill that can help you; however, because Pop Bubbles usually travels bundled with third-party infections, we do not recommend wasting your time with manual removal. Instead, you should install a trusted, reliable, up-to-date anti-malware tool that could erase all computer threats automatically. We are sure that all users can delete Pop Bubbles, considering that this program can also be successfully uninstalled via Control Panel; however, we are not so sure about the third-party malware that could enter your PC bundled with this adware. If you do not handle malicious software quickly, more dangerous infections could find their way into your operating system. You could become a victim of scams. Your virtual identity could be stolen and exploited to scam others. The possibilities are truly endless, and you should not provide cyber criminals with a single opportunity to take advantage of your security vulnerabilities and scam you.

If you have interacted with the ads displayed by Pop Bubbles, it is possible that additional malware was installed on your PC. Tracking cookies deserve your attention as well. These cookies are installed whenever you interact with third-party content, and they could be used to spy on you and even record personal information. You can rely on reliable malware removal software to eliminate these cookies; however, if you decide to eliminate malware manually, do not forget to reset your browsers.
