How did I get infected with?

Click Caption resorts to the usual antics when it comes to infiltrating your system. It has quite a few tricks up its sleeve, and it’s willing to use every last one of them in order to fool you into approving its installation and sneak in undetected. More often than not, this application hitches a ride with freeware. That’s because freeware provides possibly the easiest access point as most users are not nearly as attentive as they should be when going through its installation process. They seem to think that it’s a good idea to not read the terms and conditions, and instead agree to everything in haste. And it is, indeed, a superb idea, if you want to end up with adware such as Click Caption. If you don’t, then it’s really not. Be more attentive, and you might avoid getting stuck with malicious and intrusive programs.

Why are these ads dangerous?

Click Caption is an ad-supported application, which means it has to generate pay-per-click revenue for the third parties behind it in order to continue its existence.  The application is programmed to start observing your browsing habits immediately after it infiltrates your system. It lays low and keeps an eye on you, so it gets to know you a bit better, and understand your preferences, your likes, and dislikes. After that, it knows which ads would have a better shot at sparking your interest and, therefore, result in a click, i.e. profit. But that’s not the only reason it keeps an eye on you. Click Caption is designed to keep track of every move you make, catalog it, and once it feels it has collected enough data, send it to the aforementioned individuals. If you allow this harmful program to stay on your computer, it will be the same as allowing these wicked people access to your personal and financial information. Are you willing to take such a tremendous gamble? If not, delete Click Caption as soon as you possibly can. Your future self will thank you for it.
