SpeedCheckApp is an application that will allow you to check the speed of your Internet connection and test your broadband quality. You will be able to run this speed checker by clicking on a small window at the bottom-right corner of your screen. It is very likely that you will be able to check the speed if you use Internet Explorer, Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox browsers because SpeedCheckApp is compatible with all of them. Unfortunately, our security experts have found that this program is a typical advertising-supported application. In addition, it is not known whether it shows the speed of the Internet connection properly. Therefore, we believe that you should find similar software and delete SpeedCheckApp as soon as possible. Luckily, you can do that via Control Panel. We have provided the manual removal instructions below the article.
This application might not only provide you with fake Internet speed results, but also show commercial ads on different kinds of websites. The research has shown that commercials might affect shopping (e.g. ebay.com, amazon.com, bestbuy.com) websites as well, which means that you might face difficulties if you decide to buy items from them. Ads will appear on other websites as well; however, we do not recommend clicking on them because you might be taken to corrupted websites. Ads might also offer you to download software, which means that you might end up with different unreliable programs if you keep clicking on them.
The researchers at pcthreat.com have found out that SpeedCheckApp might enter your system if you agree with the installation of fake Java or browser updates. Of course, users can download it themselves as well. You should always download software updates from official websites only if you do not want to install malware on your computer. What’s more, you should also invest in a good antimalware tool. There is no doubt that a security application will protect your computer from threats; however, you should know that only reliable tools can do that.
If you want to get rid of SpeedCheckApp, you have to access Control Panel and delete it from there. Unfortunately, there is a possibility that other infections are present on your computer as well. Therefore, you should scan your computer with a diagnostic scanner. You can download the SpyHunter diagnostic scanner by clicking on the Download button which is placed below the article. In case it detects threats, you will be able to upgrade it and remove them all automatically.
