- Annoying Pop-up's
- Shows commercial adverts
- Connects to the internet without permission
Triangle Trail pretends to be a browser helper object; however, in reality, it is a useless but potentially harmful ad-supported program based on the well-known Injekt engine. If you find this adware on your computer, it is likely that you have noticed annoying third-party ads recently. But, of course, this adware can do a lot worse than simply being distracting. The real potentials of adware applications should scare any security-minded computer user to act as soon as this infection is spotted. That is why we have researched this malware and now reveal what we have found. As a matter of fact, this adware can cause more problems than you would think. Third-party ads often appear to be all innocent. Understanding how they work and what kinds of potential risks they hold can help you protect your computer and your privacy as well. We recommend that you delete Triangle Trail immediately, if you do not want to see what may happen by clicking on unsafe ads.
You can find the official promotional “website” at TriangleTrail.com, but, to be quite frank, that looks like a semi-ready, out of order webpage. Not only is the design rather simple, but it is also lacking information. We could say that it is totally non-informative as even when clicking on the “More info” button, the page will simply scroll down a bit to show you more empty space. If you accidentally find this website, you will certainly be convinced that this application has to be a scam, not to mention that you cannot even download the tool from there. But what are the chances of ending up on this site at all? Not much, in our view.
Instead, it is more likely that this adware sneaks onto your computer in a free software bundle. For this to happen, you need to click on a third-party ad on an unreliable website, such as a torrent or freeware site. Or, if you have, for example, an adware program already on board, that can also display such ads no matter what website you are visiting. Either way, it is quite likely that there are several malware infections on your computer that require your attention unless you are planning to cripple your whole system or you want to reinstall your Windows. If you have visited unfamiliar or suspicious sites recently, you are better off scanning your system with a reliable malware scanner, but before that you should remove Triangle Trail.
We have noticed that this adware is an identical clone of a great number of ad-supported applications that include Bronze Aid, Discovery App, High Stairs, Wander Burst, and many more. The only aim behind this adware is obviously to generate money for its publisher through promoting third-parties. You need to know that Triangle Trail is not only capable of displaying potentially unsafe third-party ads, which may lead to malicious websites, it can also hijack legitimate advertisements on legitimate websites. Therefore, if this adware is active on your computer, you cannot be safe even when you think you are viewing a reputable website, such as YouTube or Yahoo!, because if you click on an ad, it may take you to an unsafe website.
This adware can also collect information about you, which can be either shared or even sold to third parties. It is also important to mention that Triangle Trail can connect to the internet without your permission, so it might even download other malware programs in the background. If you care about your virtual safety, you should not have second thoughts about removing Triangle Trail.
There are basically two things you can do if you want to protect your computer from further security issues. One, you can manually delete Triangle Trail from your system. Two, you can use an automated security tool. If you choose the manual option, you need to locate the uninstaller of this application in the list of installed programs in Control Panel, and run it. If you would like to kick back and relax while your computer is automatically being scanned and cleaned, you should choose a reliable antimalware program. Also, you should keep your Windows operating system and your browsers always up-to-date in order to make it harder for cyber criminals to access your computer through bugs and security glitches.
