- Annoying Pop-up's
- Shows commercial adverts
- Connects to the internet without permission
Have you been having a hard time looking for a job? Perhaps you are about to try anything just to succeed in getting one? Whatever you do, please stay away from CareerPronto because this application has nothing to do with employment or job hunt. Although it says it can help you find the latest job advertisements, this program has been created to display commercial advertisements that are rarely related to your objective. Computer security experts suggest that the best way to deal with CareerPronto is to remove the application at once. For the exact removal instructions, please scroll down to the bottom of the article.
We can see why some users think that this application is the real deal. It actually has an official homepage. The site careerpronto.com is very simple and does not offer much information about the program, but the download button works, and it means that you can download the application from the official source. Unfortunately, downloading the application from the official site does not protect you from being exposed to potentially harmful software. During our tests, we have found that the official installer for the application bundles additional programs that may prove to be dangerous. For example, CareerPronto may come with Search Knows, Sweet-page.com, MyPCBackup, Yoursearching.com, and other unwanted applications. Some of those programs could also be malicious browser hijackers that modify browser settings without user’s permission.
As you can see, it is not a good idea to have anything to do with this application. What’s more, it does not matter how the program manages to enter your computer. Eventually, the result will be more or less the same. Even if you do not remember downloading the application, it is very likely that CareerPronto came to your computer bundled with freeware. Software bundling is a very common freeware distribution method, and it is more than obvious that this application makes use of that too.
The same ways of distribution were employed by Moneyzila, NewsCert, DatingDone, and a list of other applications from the same family. The reason users are not aware of freeware installation at first is because they tend to skip through the installation wizard without checking all the steps. If you are dealing with a third-party installer, some of the steps will definitely inform you about additional programs that are about to be added to your system. If you fail to notice that, you have no one else but yourself to blame.
Some users may argue that adware programs are more annoying than dangerous, and there is no need to freak out about such a random player as CareerPronto. However, albeit there is true to it, you have to remember that adware programs also have loose privacy policies that make way for particular security loops. Consequently, these security loops can be used by cyber criminals, and adware programs easily become malware distribution tools. The infection rate may not be as high as while using other methods of distribution, but the possibility is always there, so you should not take your chances.
You will know that something is off when your web browsing sessions will be interrupted with tons of different pop-up ads. Some of the ads will look like they are related to your most recent web searches. That is so because they really are related to them. Adware programs collect information on your web browsing habits to provide you with custom content. Custom content increases the possibility of your clicking such ads, so the programs that make use of CareerPronto and other similar applications try out almost everything to get your click.
By clicking on a commercial ad, you help the people behind it make money. You get nothing in return, and sometimes it might end in a really nasty manner. For example, if you click a malicious Flash exploit, you could get infected with ransomware, and then you would seriously lose most of your files.
To protect your computer and your data from severe infections, you need to take care of minor problems the moment they arise. Remove CareerPronto from your computer immediately, and then make sure you delete other unwanted applications, too. To know which programs you have to terminate, please scan your computer with a legitimate antispyware tool. This way you will definitely be sure that your PC is protected from harm.
