In accordance with its name, CrazyForCraft will indeed drive you mad the minute it lands on your computer. So you thought this program is something practical and fun? You might want to think again. CrazyForCraft’s biggest weapon is precisely the fact that it seems to be harmless when in reality this is a resourceful and dangerous adware parasite. Also classified as a PUP (potentially unwanted program), CrazyForCraft is unwanted for a reason and you’re soon to understand why. Luckily, this thing isn’t even remotely subtle and it manifests its presence immediately so at least you’re not going to spend much time wondering what’s going on with your PC. The never-ending pile of commercials labeled “Ads by CrazyForCraft”, “CrazyForCraft Ads”, “Brought by CrazyForCraft”, “Powered by CrazyForCraft”, etc. will soon solve that mystery.  The reason why such infections make sure they constantly bombard your PC screen with ads is very simple and very nasty – to generate profit for the hackers who created the parasite. Now that you know money is involved in the whole picture, are you feeling nervous yet? Yous should. In order to make revenue, CrazyForCraft would be perfectly happy pouring all kinds of web links on you, including corrupted ones. The worst case scenario here is you click some of the links open thus accidentally installing malware on your own computer. Of course, you could always be scammed as well and lose your money on some non-existent product or bogus discount. In addition, your PC speed cannot remain unaffected by the parasite’s shenanigans. Would you really want to deal with CrazyForCraft’s manipulations on a daily basis? It’s time for you to be crafty and delete the virus before it gets completely out of hand. You will not regret it.

How did I get infected with?

There is some slight possibility that you installed the CrazyForCraft program voluntarily from its official website. However, you probably didn’t. What happened then? How did you end up infected? You should keep in mind that CrazyForCraft is an adware-type infection which means it’s very skilled when it comes to deceit and trickery. The easiest way for cyber crooks to get your machine corrupted is to apply the dubious bundled freeware technique and to rely mainly on your negligence. Have you recently downloaded some questionable software from some questionable website? And have you read carefully the Terms and Conditions of what you’re agreeing to? Do you see our point? Hackers take advantage of the fact many people tend to overlook the installation process as they prefer to simply click the “Next” button. That way, though, you could agree to install a whole bunch of parasites without having any idea about it. Needless to remind you how dangerous this tactic really is because CrazyForCraft is a relatively small threat compared to many more parasites that circle the Web. Always pay some extra time checking the software you install and, preferably, stay away from unverified websites. Remember that your cyber security is your concern and yours only.

Why are these ads dangerous?

Any computer parasite, no matter how harmless it appears to be, could quickly put you in a serious danger. CrazyForCraft is no exception. After its successful sneaky installation, the parasite attacks your browsers and modifies them according to its own liking. What about your permission, you may ask, what about your opinion? Sadly, after CrazyForCraft gets itself downloaded, your Internet experience is no longer up to you. This malicious program is compatible with the most popular browsers out there and it affects Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer without hesitation. As we already mentioned, the CrazyForCraft add-on will cover every web page you visit with tons of commercials. It’s very important that you avoid them! There isn’t a single pop-up, pop-under, banner or hyperlink that is reliable enough to deserve your click so unless you’re actively trying to compromise your computer, you will stay away from all commercials. Same rule of thumb goes to the various software updates CrazyForCraft may offer you – they’re equally unreliable and potentially very harmful. As if that wasn’t enough, the virus also steals your browsing history, passwords, email-addresses, etc. so the hackers could make even more money at your expense. Does any of that sound fair? No? Then don’t waste valuable time and remove the parasite as soon as possible. If you decide to uninstall CrazyForCraft manually, please follow the comprehensive removal guide you will find down below.
