By | February 6, 2014

remove youtubeadblocker virusYouTubeAdBlocker is a browser extension, plugin or addon for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, also called a Browser Helper Object for Internet Explorer does nothing good for your computer. It comes bundled with alot of adware installers we call “InstallRex”. It might promote ads, but in our case on our test-system it did NOTHING. When we checked it, it contacted the superfish.com domain, either none of the ads we normally got have been displayed on our system.

This adware is made for one thing, to investigate your browsing behavior using domains as superfish.com and to make money using affiliated and promoted sales. Once you use a coupon or click a ad that YouTubeAdBlocker delivers to you, YouTubeAdBlocker distributors make money or at least benefit from it. Atleast, this is how it normally works, again YouTubeAdBlocker did nothing for us, not even blocking a ad on YouTube…Well you need to scan your computer for adware because it is there, it’s bundled with lots of adware and therefor we made a generic adware removal guide for you, please follow all steps!

It is advised to always read the Terms and Agreements before installing software on your computer. Do never click too fast thru the installation process [Next] button of software as you will agree to software you might not want to install. If the installer offers a Advanced or Custom option button, click it to find out if there is any other malicious software offered and installed during the installation process.
