Halt-it is one of those pesky, annoying applications that promise you one thing and then end up acting in an entirely different way. According to our research, this program is presented as a security tool that can prevent children from encountering adult content sites. Unfortunately, once installed, it will only inject ads without providing any kind of security services. As a matter of fact, if you think about it, showing ads is the last thing that any security tool would do. If you read our report, you should have no more doubts about the removal of Halt-it. If you follow our advice, we are sure that you will delete this adware in no time.

Even though Halt-it is associated with the Lyrics family, this program does not even promise to show ads. It appears that the company behind this family has changed its profile, as the latest infections associated with it promote bogus shopping and security services. Our researchers did not have much trouble identifying Halt-it as a security threat that requires removal. Do you know why? This is because we have already analyzed a ton of programs that look and work in the same way. We have already created reports showing how to delete Blockit, Shieldren, Shieldme, and similar programs, which means we can help you delete Halt-it as well.

Even though Halt-it can be identified as a fake security plugin, this program is commonly recognized as an advertisement-supported program. If you remove Halt-it quickly, it is possible that you will avoid the onslaught of commercial advertisements and unreliable pop-ups. Unfortunately, if you postpone the removal of this threat, it is possible that the allegedly helpful "browsing guard" will start bombarding you with highly unpredictable offers. We identify Halt-it related ads as unpredictable because it is difficult to say what kind of content they might promote. For all you know, they could be introduced by malware distributors.

As mentioned previously, Halt-it has an official website. Unfortunately, most users encounter this adware bundled with other programs. Even though we identify Halt-it as a threat that deserves removal, it is quite possible that this adware will be packaged with even more deceitful and dangerous infections. If you think Halt-it is the only threat that requires removal, we strongly recommend running a malware scanner to learn if this is the truth. If you ignore this possibility, your virtual security could be jeopardized without your noticing.

You have to delete Halt-it from your operating system. If you are still unsure as to why this threat deserves removal – and we hope you are not – you can always start a discussion in the comments section below. If you need no further explanation as to why the removal of Halt-it is important, you can follow the guide below. Our manual removal instructions will help you delete Halt-it, but we cannot guarantee that this method will also help you remove the remaining infections. On top of that, it is only a matter of time before other threats attack your PC if it does not receive the support it needs. Therefore, we strongly advise using an automated malware remover with authentic security support.
