- Annoying Pop-up's
- Shows commercial adverts
- Connects to the internet without permission
Users seldom realize how easy it is for potentially unwanted programs to enter their computers. For example, SlateBeauty may seem like a useful application, but once it settles down in your system and starts collecting information on your web browsing history and then it spams you with multiple commercial advertisements. Unless you remove SlateBeauty right now, you will not be able to escape this annoying activity. In the long run, it could result in unwanted consequences that might even include a malicious infection. If you want to protect your computer from harm, you will see to it that all the unwanted and harmful applications get deleted at once.
The reason we use plural here is that adware applications seldom get distributed individually. In other words, if you have SlateBeauty installed on your computer, there is a good chance that you have several other applications as well. Has your computer been slower than the usual lately? Have you been flooded with random pop-ups that do not allow you to browse your favorite sites properly? It is true that the program in question is able to do that, but the sheer amount of commercial advertisements may indicate the fact that you are dealing with more than just one unwanted program.
How, then, all these annoying adware applications manage to get into your system? Here we encounter another disturbing fact about adware distribution: users install those programs themselves. They do not need to use malicious tricks like Trojans or ransomware programs do. For the most part, users end up installing adware because they either think the programs might be useful, or they simply do not notice these programs included in the main installer packages. Such programs like SlateBeauty are distributed in software packages that users download willingly from file-sharing websites. Perhaps your intention was to download some other program, and you did not expect it to come with some apps you neither need nor want.
Of course, there is also a chance you could have downloaded this program from slatebeauty.com. All the applications from this group, including Career Pronto, MP3 Spun, Rainy Day Travel, and others; have official homepages. Previously, we have encountered many applications that would have official sites, yet they did not provide users with working download links. These days, we see quite a lot of adware programs that does quite the opposite: most of them boast of working download buttons, and it is really easy to download official installers.
Normally, you would think that downloading a program from the official source is a safe way to acquire new software. Unfortunately, when it comes to this program, the official SlateBeauty’s installer bundles a number of other freeware applications, too. If that were not enough, some of them might be quite dangerous as well. For example, some of the programs included in the official installer could be Search Known, Sweet-page.com, MyPcBackUp, System Healer, and many others. To put it simply, you could install browser hijackers, potentially unwanted programs, adware applications at the same time.
This program is not region specific, so it means that you could get affected by it no matter where you live. However, our researchers have noticed that the additional apps that come with this program may differ according to your location. Either way, when you notice that you have multiple undesirable applications on-board, you have to do everything you can to terminate them.
Sometimes users may not be too eager to remove adware because they do not consider it something dangerous. Unfortunately, SlateBeauty and other similar programs can cause quite a lot of damage if you do not deal with it right away.
You have to remember that adware can promote third-party content, and no one is responsible for its security. Thus, sometimes the third-party ads could be embedded with links that lead to corrupted websites. It would not be surprising if you got infected with malware, too!
Therefore, open Control Panel and remove SlateBeauty right now. Luckily, this program does not leave any files in your system, but, as you can already tell, that may not be enough to ensure your system’s safety. After manual removal, be sure to run a full PC scan with the SpyHunter free scanner. You need to locate other unwanted applications and delete them without any further ado.
