Adware.Bubble Dock

Adware.Bubble Dock is a browser add-on is compatible with Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. However, the application does not change the interface of the browser or the home page. The changes are visible on the desktop as a toolbar resembling Apple OS’ desktop options is installed. In order to view those options, you have to open the Start menu and click Bubble Dock. We recommend that you remove the so-called Adware.Bubble Dock as this application is also capable of displayed pop-up advertisement while you are browsing the Internet.

It has been noticed that Adware.Bubble Dock is recommended by various websites, including, Surcouf, and some others. However, if you find that the application does not fulfill your needs or cause you some difficulties, do not hesitate to delete it.

According to the official website of Adware.Bubble Dock, the user can personalize the toolbar in order to access various websites. We found that the Bubble Dock toolbar allows the user to access Facebook, web radio, weather forecasts, promo codes, and many other websites, all of which are opened in a Bubble Dock window.

Ignore the advertisements as they are displayed in order to help advertisers earn money. Another reason why you should avoid clicking the advertisements is that they may direct you to an insecure website, so if you do not have a reliable spyware removal tool, ignore pop-ups and get rid of Adware.Bubble.

The removal of Adware.Bubble Dock should not be delayed as this application may be monitoring your actions online. For example, Internet Explorer contains a browser helper object (BHO), which may be used to collect information provided by your browsers. The application is presented as spyware and adware-free; however, if it has been installed alongside freeware and you want to remove it from the computer because of the advertisements, you can easily do it right now.

When it comes to the removal of the adware application, you have two options. You can either uninstall Adware.Bubble Dock using the Control Panel utility or install a reliable spyware removal tool and launch a system scan. If you want to have Adware.Bubble Dock removed for you, use SpyHunter as this application can also protect the system.

    I had to restart in Safe Mode to be able to remove it, nothing worked, couldn't stop it, couldn't remove via Add/Remove programmes, Safe Mode, Add/Remove programmes worked fine.

    me too : doesn't appear in programs list, anywhere & I only found it as I suddenly noticed the black bars (top right corner of screen) turned orange when I opened Google; curious I looked to see why & there was a warning message about BUBBLE DOCK! can't get rid of it & I've tried everything.... only thing that seems to keep it at bay is to kdelete it at the warning msg above (every single time) & search via the incognita option
    this is nightmare & I DO NOT WANT IT-how dare they!

    I've just picked it up on my laptop too and currently looking for a fix.

    Having just returned from an Arctic expedition and about to embark on my next expedition to India the last thing that I need to do is waste time fiddling about trying to get rid of this damned stuff.

    Can we make it a hanging offence to create and distribute this stuff?!

    I got this by downloading 'PSD viewer' from CNET.

    I would suggest that anyone considering to try their software dont.

  6. Dave Jun 20, 2014

    I tried Kim's method by removing file whilst in safe mode and it allowed me to remove it. Job done and many thanks to Kim.

    Cis supposed to be a re*****ble website and as such trusted by a great number of people. I realise that they cannot be held directly responsible for actions taking place away from their website, but I do think they should try to follow-up anything that is advertised on their website to reduce the likelihood of unwanted software being installed such as this.

    Kim, you're awesome! Thank you!!

    Hello folks. I too have downloaded this waste of time with a PDF . I'm on windows 7 home premium and have tried to remove it by using the F8 startup but I simply cannot get rid of shopping helper smart bar. Shopping helper smart bar engine both by Re soft and finally Web Protect from PC Publishing. It tells me it's waiting for the current program to un install. Then it says the file is corrupted. Try later.
    Can anyone help me I have only just upgraded from an Etcha Sketch. Easy speak only !

  13. Motty Sep 15, 2014

    I seem to have got rid of the Re soft junk. But can't get rid of Web Protect from PC publishing.

    Kim, your solution worked for me as well. Thanks, you saved me hours looking at some of the other comments. On my computer (Windows 8.1) tapping F8 to get into safe mode didn't work. I had to start normally and then go to computer settings where I eventually found an option to restore the computer which had the safe mode tucked away in there. Best google it if you're stuck and reading this!

    Well, since Gary Linsell and Kim made their comments the Bubble people must have caught on as these methods no longer work :(
    The Bubble so-called "uninstall" page blocks any further progress, and a no-doubt false 'wait until the previous desinstallation is finished' pops up....

    Any new ideas please, before a complete format and reload become necessary?
    Thanks in advance

    avoid buying from any of these companies in the future
