BuiltMoneyMaker offers you an opportunity to “earn extra cash from your desktop,” but you should know that it is a waste of your time and patience. The program makes money from your clicks, but only for its creators. To put it more simply, it is an adware application created to display ads and as you click them the software’s originators receive advertising revenue. Although your clicks are essential here, you will not get anything out of it. On top of that, the ads might come from unreliable web pages, and they can be very annoying and disturb your browsing. Nevertheless, you can get rid of it by removing BuiltMoneyMaker from your system, and if you need some help with it, we have prepared a detailed instruction for you at the end of the article.

Like most of the adware programs, this one gets from one computer to another with bundled programs. In most cases, bundled application is downloaded from file-sharing websites, which are not very reliable sources for getting software. After you launch the installer, the bundled programs will show up in the setup wizard, and it should be displayed as a suggestion, which you could reject. Still, in most cases the additional applications on the installation wizard are presented in such a way that it is difficult to notice them, and that is why so many users allow unwanted software to enter their system without realizing it. Some users could have installed BuiltMoneyMaker this way too, but there is also a chance that you noticed it in search results. It could suggest that you may have a browser hijacker on your system, and it might modify your search results by injecting them with sponsored links, which advertise potentially unwanted programs, other adware, etc. In such situation, it would be advisable to remove the hijacker with a security tool, since there might be even more threats. Besides, it would take care of this adware too.

After the program is installed it will launch its own window, which displays the logo at the top and the rest of space is filled with content from builtmoneymaker.com/redir.php, but it might show other websites with shopping offers or other ads, such as savings-galleria.com. Also, the application can open new Internet Explorer browser windows and redirect you to various sites with offers, e.g. lamphouseoffers.com, omgsweeps.com, etc. What concerns security specialists is that the provided links might come from a third party, meaning they could redirect you to untrustworthy or malicious websites. The main danger here is that your computer could catch a Trojan, virus, etc. if it is not protected by a legitimate security tool. Probably, it would be impossible to separate reliable websites from the malicious ones, so it would be better not to risk it and avoid the BuiltMoneyMaker ads.

While reading the application’s Privacy Policy, we noticed a particular condition that you agreed with after installing the software. It says that the adware’s creators might make available a “Short Message Service,” which would allow them to send you commercial text messages to your wireless device. These SMS texts with ads would come directly from BuiltMoneyMaker or its third-party partners. It seems that you might receive irritating ads not only on your computer but on your mobile device too. If you want to stop these ads, you should remove the program from your computer right away.

In conclusion, if you want to increase your income while staying at home you should search for another way because BuiltMoneyMaker might be harmful to your computer and you might be flooded with tons of ads while using your computer or mobile phone. Therefore, you should erase the adware from your computer, and you can do it manually too. Even if you are an inexperienced user, you should remove it with no trouble as you can use the deletion instructions available below the text. However, you should be aware that there might be more unwanted software in your system, and it might be easier to use a legitimate security tool to delete it at once. All you have to do is install the security tool and after launching it, you can do a full system scan, which should find all threats and remove them automatically.
