Book Forth should enable users to “find the perfect book online.” At least, it promises to act like that on its official website bookforth.com. There are millions of people who love reading books, so it is not surprising that Book Forth has become so popular very quickly. Specialists have observed that it is very prevalent in the U.S, Pakistan, and Spain at the time of writing. Of course, the situation might change very quickly, so users who live somewhere else are not safe too and might still encounter Book Forth. If this has already happened, you need to delete this program from the system no matter you have downloaded and installed it yourself, or it has found another way to creep in. It is quite easy to get rid of this advertising-supported application (adware), so you should not wait any longer to eliminate it from your system.
Researchers at pcthreat.com have thoroughly tested this program and found that it is a typical advertising-supported application that promises to act very beneficially, i.e. to enable users to find books. The application will really take users to free-ebooks.net if they double-click on its shortcut that will be put on the Desktop after the installation. Unfortunately, it is unclear whether the website it will open is 100% trustworthy and does not contain unreliable advertisements and links. According to specialists, this adware program will not only open this website, but might also show various offers, surveys, and advertisements. These offers and ads might contain untrustworthy links leading to third-party websites with an infectious content. In case of surveys, you might be asked to enter personal information that might be later sold to third parties. As you can see, it is a bad idea to keep Book Forth installed on the system.
Unfortunately, this advertising-supported application is also going to perform other undesirable activities, for example, specialists have noticed that it might gather two types of information about users. First of all, it is interested in non-personally identifiable information, and it gathers it automatically. Non-personally identifiable information consists of details about users’ browsing activities, search queries, etc. Moreover, Book Forth might also gather personal information, e.g. name, surname, email address, etc. It will not know these details if you do not enter them yourself; however, it would still be better to get rid of this program because it might find out different facts about you from the non-personally identifiable information that is collected automatically day after day.
Book Forth is usually spread in InstallCore bundles together with other undesirable software, e.g. MyPCBackup, Yoursearching.com, System Healer, and other questionable applications. As it enters systems rather secretly, the majority of users do not even notice that they have this adware installed. Actually, it is very easy to find out whether it is installed or not. First of all, you will notice its folder in the Program Files directory. Secondly, its folder will be visible in the Start menu. Third, you will come across its shortcut on the Desktop. More experienced users will also notice that this adware has created several new registry keys, e.g. [HKCU|HKLM]Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\DOMStorage\www.bookforth.com.
Unfortunately, there are hundreds of different ad-supported programs that are based on the same template as Book Forth. This means that you might encounter adware again in the future if you carelessly surf the web and do not have a reputable security tool installed on your system. We are sure that you do not wish this to happen, so we highly recommend that you download a trustworthy antimalware tool SpyHunter from our website and install it. If you upgrade it, it will protect your system 24/7.
Book Forth itself can be deleted from the system rather easily because it has an uninstaller in Control Panel. Unfortunately, we cannot say the same about those additional programs that have sneaked onto the computer together with this adware. Actually, we do not recommend trying to delete them manually because you might not erase all their files, and they will continue working behind your back. It is not necessary to delete Book Forth manually as well. If you want to do that quicker and easier, you should scan your system with an automatic malware remover. It will delete Book Forth for you within seconds.
