- Shows commercial adverts
- Annoying Pop-up's
SpeedyResults is considered adware and as such you ought to remove it. This adware has been designed to do nothing more than to annoy you with ads, hoping that you will be gullible enough to click on one. SpeedyResults poses as a useful application, dedicated to enhance your browsing experience. Well, in reality it does no such thing. It does, however, display numerous commercial ads that are first of all intrusive, and secondly they might be dangerous and could jeopardize your system’s security.
Once you install SpeedyResults on your computer, it will start to display numerous ads on every webpage you visit. It must be said that this adware is compatible with the most widely used web browsers such as Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. We must also mention that SpeedyResults comes in the form of a browser extension, which is crucial to know when attempting to delete it.
At the very least, SpeedyResults is known to display four types of ads, such as sponsored links, coupons, in-text ads, banners, and pop-ups. Even though the adware is intrusive and annoying, it is not considered dangerous on its own accord. However, the content it promotes may pose a serious threat to your system’s security. What we mean by this is that any ad is capable of infecting your system with all types of malware, including but not limited to Trojans, rootkits, rogue antispyware, and other adware.
It must also be mentioned that SpeedyResults has the ability to track your online activity. This tracking may include collecting information on your browsing history, search quarries, and so on. All of this is usually done to make certain tweaks to the content of the ads. These tweaks are necessary for the third parties to specifically target any user, thus increasing their chances of successfully luring them into their sites. It goes without saying that these marketing strategies are also practiced by legitimate businesses. However, they are also implemented by schemers and cyber criminals for illicit activities, and that is the main reason why we advocate users to remove SpeedyResults, because there is no way of knowing if the promoted ads are legitimate or not.
Lastly, we must touch upon the methods of its distribution, because we think that prevention is of the utmost importance. SpeedyResults is known to be bundled with free applications that are usually found on websites dedicated to freeware. These free programs may include system utilities, video players, PDF creators, and so on. Of course, the user may choose to opt out the installation of SpeedyResults, but most do not, because these days most installation wizards are designed is such a way that the user does not notice the offer to install additional software.
Even though SpeedyResults is not a hazardous threat, the ads it promotes certainly are, because the ad may turn out to be fake, and your system might be infected with dangerous malware. Obviously, we cannot point out the names of specific malware applications, because the ads are always being replaced by new ones, promoting different, potentially dangerous content. We recommend users not to take any chances and remove SpeedyResults in order to keep your system malware free.
