Type: Adware
Common infection symptoms:
  • Shows commercial adverts


Exerunner is a tremendously suspicious application which is meant to assist adware programs running on your personal computer. Detecting advertisement supported programs is not an easy task because usually they are camouflaged as authentic and beneficial browser extensions. Unfortunately, detecting the so-called adware helper is even more difficult because it runs silently without making itself notable. As malware researchers have discovered, the suspicious program may create a folder with a randomly generated name, for example, ExerunnEra (%ALLUSERSPROFILE%). If you delete the components found within this folder, it is highly likely that adware linked to it will lose the necessary support. Therefore, we recommend that you remove Exerunner immediately.

Adware Helpers are extremely helpful to advertisement supported programs, and so there is no surprise that more and more suspicious adware helpers, including Bprotector and BenchUpdater, emerge. They can assist adware in many different ways. For example, software developers may use them to update browser plugins, adjust permissions and privileges. It has been discovered that Exerunner may run alongside DealsFinder Pro, MapsGalaxy, and similar browser extensions. Needless to say, you will not be informed about the additionally bundled adware helper because it might scare off potential users which advertisement supported programs need to perform the tasks they have been created for.

In some cases computer users are completely oblivious about the existence of adware because it might be installed packaged with other software or plugins. There is no doubt that you should remove adware from the system in any way because advertisement supported programs are often supported by unreliable third parties. Do you want to be exposed to links to the websites which may be unreliable and even dangerous to visit? Well these links might hide behind seemingly harmless and interesting pop-ups, banner advertisements or prize giveaways.

When you identify the adware you wish to remove from the system, you should not forget to delete Exerunner as well. Most computer users believe that they can get rid of adware by disabling certain browser extensions; however, this is not always the case. If you complete the manual guides below and advertisement still appear on the browsers, there is no doubt that adware components have been left behind. This is a strong reason why you should use automatic malware removal software. Make sure you keep this software updated in order to ensure that other adware and adware helpers cannot slither into the system in the future.
