Bugfixxer Ads are irritating commercial advertisements that are shown by an advertising-supported application HahoMedia. Specialists have named these ads Bugfixxer Ads not because they appear on the screen with this label, but because the HahoMedia adware uses the Bugfixxer service to show those commercials. An advertising-supported application itself seems to be useful software at first glance; however, users who read the information provided for them in the setup wizard find out quickly its true intentions. It is said that even though the application “tries to make sure you save money and pay less,” it is still going to display advertisements in different formats: banners, in-text ads, video ads, coupons, and promotions. These Bugfixxer Ads will be very annoying because they will appear on the websites you visit without prior notice. To be honest, they are not only irritating, but they might also cause harm to your computer. We will elaborate on this fact further in this article.
It has been already mentioned for you that Bugfixxer Ads might take different forms, for example, they might appear on your screen as pop-ups, banners, and other types of commercials. These ads might offer you to download “important” updates, take part in a survey, or buy a product for a lower price on another third-party website. You should not click on any of these ads despite the fact that they look good because these commercials contain links which will lead you to third-party sites. To be honest, this adware has been developed to drive the traffic to other websites, so it is not very surprising that it acts this way. Unfortunately, users who click on Bugfixxer Ads cannot feel safe because they might end up on a website containing malicious software one day. Of course, they will not know that the website is bad and thus will not hurry to leave it. In some cases users, who click on advertisements do not end up on bad third-party sites but download malicious software. In most cases, this happens when users click on the Install button on a pop-up offering to download Java updates, Flash Player, or another important program. Finally, security experts working at pcthreat.com suggest ignoring ads offering to buy the particular item for a much lower price because these ads might take to untrustworthy online shops.
The presence of Bugfixxer Ads is not the only problem of the HahoMedia adware. Researchers have checked all the information provided on its official website hahomedia.com and say that you should eliminate it also because it is going to collect information. It gathers personal information and non-personally identifiable details. This is not shocking at all because we know that adware seek to show appealing ads based on users’ interests in order to be sure that many users click on these commercials. It is said that it will protect the gathered information; however, we still believe that it might share it with third parties. The adware program claims that it collects information for three reasons:
You should not allow it to do that even if it is true because many adware programs sell details about users to third parties. You will stop an adware program by fully eliminating it from the system only.
As HahoMedia is a typical adware program, it might enter the system in software bundles and then start showing advertisements. Users can also download it from hahomedia.com where it pretends to be a beneficial program. The first symptom that it is installed on the system is the presence of Bugfixxer Ads on all the browsers, including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox.
It is a must to remove an adware program HahoMedia in order to stop Bugfixxer Ads from appearing on the screen. Even though you could find the uninstaller of this adware in Control Panel, it has been noticed that it does not eliminate the main folder, so you will keep seeing commercial advertisements on your screen. In order to make those ads disappear once and for all, you need to remove the folder of this adware from C:\Program Files (x86) (C:\Program Files). You can either erase it manually or use an automatic malware remover.
