AddToThis does not even sound like a beneficial program, as it is most likely that its developers have used up the most obvious names already. Even though we cannot guarantee this by 100%, the evidence shows that AddToThis might have been created by the same people who stand behind SpaceCouponApp, Browsing Clear, ClearNiceBrowse, and hundreds of other Justplugit-based advertisement-supported programs that also require removal. If you continue reading our report, it will become clear why you need to remove AddToThis.

There is one more suspicious thing regarding the name of AddToThis. It has been discovered that this ad-supported program can attempt to circumvent removal by changing its name. Even though this might fool inexperienced computer users, automatic malware removal software would never mistake AddToThis for anything else but a threat, regardless of the name used. Of course, automatic malware removal software is not protecting your operating system; otherwise, you would not need to delete AddToThis.

According to recent research conducted by our virtual security experts, AddToThis is usually introduced to users by Installrex and similar unreliable third-party advertisers. These installers are usually introduced to users via fictitious, misleading offers presented on sites associated with torrent and P2P file-sharing services. If you are cautious, you will not visit these sites or interact with fictitious offers, which means that you will not have to worry about the removal of AddToThis, EZDownloader,,, and other malicious infections that come packaged together.

You are very wrong if you think that the removal of AddToThis is straightforward. This infection is completely unpredictable, and we cannot say if every user will have to take the same steps to succeed. While some users might be able to delete AddToThis completely by uninstalling it, others might have to remove leftovers. Our researchers have found that, in most cases, users have to remove Firefox and Chrome extensions separately. Even though this program is also compatible with Internet Explorer, the extension from this browser is deleted when users uninstall adware.

The manual removal is unpredictable, but automatic malware removal software offers reliable services. For example, SpyHunter will delete AddToThis and all other threats automatically, and you will not have to worry about missing leftovers or malicious tracking cookies. This security program is also irreplaceable when it comes to protecting your operating system and ensuring that other malicious programs cannot slither in. We strongly suggest using this software even if you manage to remove AddToThis manually.
