If you’ve been unlucky enough to let Micro Cover enter your computer, this article will provide you with some useful information about this pesky parasite. Being classified as adware and a PUP (potentially unwanted program), this thing is supposed to make your browsing experience better. Needless to say, it does the exact opposite. The only thing Micro Cover succeeds in is bombarding your machine with potentially corrupted or fake commercials and you can be more that certain that it will also seriously jeopardize your safety in the process. However harmless it may seem, keep in mind this is still a computer virus and it has to be removed as soon as possible. The thing with adware is, even though such programs are the smallest cyber threat out there, if given enough time on your device, they could become incredibly dangerous.
How did I get infected with?
You probably don’t remember installing Micro Cover and yet, there it is, wreaking havoc on your device. How did that happen? Most adware programs (Micro Cover included) travel the web as attachments to freeware bundles. That way, installing a bundle equals installing the adware unless you’re careful enough to go through the Terms and Conditions and deselect it. Always opt for the advanced/custom option in the Setup Wizard and never skip a single installation step. Remember, hurrying is very ill-advised because you might fail to notice some unwanted “bonus” program and in case that happens, you have no one to blame but yourself. Also, avoid all kinds of spam emails or messages from unknown senders and stay away from third-party advertisements. Hackers always have tricks up their sleeve and you can never be too cautious when it comes to cyber threats.
Why are these ads dangerous?
Apart from being utterly useless and extremely annoying, the Micro Cover virus will try numerous times to infect you with malware using devious and secretive tactics. Once it gets installed, this program starts interfering with your online activities almost immediately. Micro Cover adds an extension to all the browsers on your computer (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer) and injects them with the dreadful Micro Cover ads. Long story short, once the parade of commercials begins, you will not see the end of it. Random pop-ups, random pop-unders, flashy banners, colorful in-texts, video ads and so on – even seeing the PC screen itself will become a challenge. It’s very important to remember that none of these ads are reliable because Micro Cover’s developers are willing to display any link to any website if paid enough. That means some ads will be real, some will be fake and some will be corrupted. Hackers would love it if you clicked on any of them and that is precisely what you shouldn’t do. Cyber criminals use the stealthy pay-per-click monetizing system to gain money. So, to generate their illegal revenue, they have to make you click the commercials. To make them appealing to you, they will not hesitate to use your own browsing history and adjust the ads according to your preferences. Do not fall victim to such a cheap trick and get rid of the Micro Cover virus before it manages to cause you harm. The parasite might even suggest you some bogus program update or other additional software which could be corrupted as well. You can’t trust anything brought to you by Micro Cover and the only way to put an and to this chaos is to remove the virus. Of course, having a parasite will affect the speed on your Internet connection and the speed of the computer in general so even the most simple tasks will take up a lot of time, energy and patience. You can successfully get rid of Micro Cover manually and in order to help you do so, we’ve provided a detailed removal guide down bellow.
