There are numerous applications that promise to save you money while shopping online. You must know that ClearThink is not that kind of application. It is certainly advertised in that way. But, in reality, it is only capable of disrupting your web browsing experience. The provided adverts and various deals by ClearThink are relatively useless. The worst thing about ClearThink and adware applications in general is that they are usually used as a gateway to install other infections onto your operating system. The removal guide of ClearThink and further information about this particular adware are provided within this report.
ClearThink is compatible with all the popular browsers on the market (Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Google Chrome). After successfully entering your operating system, ClearThink will install browser extensions to all the browsers mentioned. These will be used to present you with numerous third-party commercial adverts while you browse the web. It was noticed that ads are mostly displayed on commercial websites such as bestbuy.com, ebay.com, amazon.com, etc.
The presented adverts and shopping suggestions could turn out to be detrimental because they could be inserted with redirect links. It is possible that you could get redirected to a corrupted website running an arbitrary code execution exploit. That means that just by landing on such a website, your system could get infected with virtually unknown malware. It is advisable not to click on any ads provided by the ClearThink adware application. It is crucial to remove ClearThink from your system if virtual security is important to you.
It is well known that ClearThink is just another product of the infamous SuperWeb LLC group that has produced adware applications such as Fortunitas, Surftatic, RockResult, Dolphin Deals, Deal Keeper, etc. The developer is not the only link between these programs. All of them are distributed via bundled software. Most of the installers that are filled with numerous applications are acquired from dubious websites. It could be a fake download website, a torrent website, or just some unknown third-party hosting website. We recommend avoiding such web pages for software downloads; stick to official websites only as it is your best bet to avoid any unwanted applications entering your operating system. Furthermore, it is firmly advised to install a powerful antimalware tool that could protect your system from getting infected in general.
The removal of ClearThink is a task that should be executed with caution as just one mistake could mean that some bits of the infection are still present on your PC. These leftovers can be quite detrimental by themselves. They could provide backdoor for other internet-based infections. Also, it is possible that those traces could be used in order to restore the infection. We recommend scanning your operating system with a reliable antimalware program in order to make sure that ClearThink or any other infection was removed completely.
