Meteoroids is a program that will allow you to play a game on your Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox browsers. The game can be activated by pressing Ctrl + Alt + A simultaneously and might seem like great fun; however, we still do not recommend keeping this program on the system. One of the main reasons why it is not worth trusting this software is the fact that it is nothing more than just an advertising-supported application. It means that it will not only allow you to play a game, but also might provide you with different kinds of commercial ads. They will appear on your screen without prior notice, which means that they might disrupt your browsing activities. In order to prevent this from happening, you should definitely erase Meteoroids from the system. As it can be eliminated via Control Panel, the removal of this program will not take much time.

It seems that Meteoroids is a clone of Blasteroids, Disasteroids, and Websteroids; thus, it is not surprising that it acts in the same manner as the aforementioned applications. Actually, these programs are not very dangerous themselves; however, they will present you with third-party links which might take you to unreliable websites. Meteoroids itself is not associated with third-party advertisers; thus, if you start seeing commercial ads on your screen, we advise you to ignore them completely. We recommend that you always read EULA (End User License Agreement) before the installation of new software in order to find out how the application is going to act.

You should never trust programs that enter the system secretly; thus, if you cannot remember downloading Meteoroids yourself, you should definitely erase it as soon as possible. Keep in mind that plenty of undesirable applications travel bundled with free unreliable programs; thus, you should be extremely careful. Actually, it is advisable to download software from official websites only in order to avoid unfamiliar application. In addition, you should install a reliable security tool and keep it enabled all the time.

If you remove Meteoroids from the system, you will reduce the possibility to infect the system with malicious software. Thus, you should definitely not postpone the removal process for any longer. If you do not feel experienced enough to remove this adware yourself, you should know that you can scan your system with a licensed antimalware tool and remove all the existing threats. One of the main reasons why it is worth investing in a security tool is the fact that it will not allow other undesirable software enter the system in the future.
