On2GoApp is one of those programs that do not do anything but show advertisements. Therefore, it is put under the category of advertising-supported applications. Like other JustPlugIt-based adware programs, it usually enters the system rather secretly because it comes bundled with other undesirable programs and it is spread via InstallRex installers mainly. On2GoApp is one of the names this program might have; thus, if you ever detect an application with an almost identical name, you should remove it as well. At first sight, it seems that On2GoApp is harmless and it cannot do anything bad; however, you will soon realize that this program is completely useless and it is responsible for several undesirable activities. In this article we will explain to you why it is better to get rid of this adware.

As On2GoApp has been published to show ads only, you should not expect that it will improve your online shopping experience, help save money, or do something else. According to our specialists, adware programs only show advertisements, so it is advisable to get rid of them immediately if they manage to enter the system. If you keep them installed, you might infect your system with malware very quickly. In fact, security specialists say that even a click on one of the ads generated by On2GoApp might result in the presence of malicious software. We do not think that you want to infect your computer with malware, so we suggest that you remove On2GoApp as soon as possible. The peculiarities of the removal of this program will be explained in the last paragraph.

In order not to end up with adware again, you have to be cautious. It is especially advisable to be careful on various torrent, P2P, and similar websites because you might download malicious software very easily from them. You should also be very careful with freeware and shareware because you might download a bunch of untrustworthy programs by simply trying to download some kind of free program from a third-party website. If you do not trust yourself, you should know that there are other ways to protect your system. For example, you can install an antimalware tool.

If you use Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome, you will not be able to remove On2GoApp via Control Panel because you will also have to eliminate extensions from browsers in order to stop ads from appearing. In case you use Internet Explorer, you can remove On2GoApp via Control Panel; however, it does not mean that you do not need to take care of other undesirable programs that might have entered your system together with On2GoApp. It might not be easy to detect and remove programs, so we suggest using an automatic scanner.
