Do you want to stop PicColor ads pop-ing in your browsers?

Manual instructions to remove PicColor ads are presented in this article. Ads by PicColor are various advertisements you will notice when surfing the web after the advertisement-supported application PicColor has infiltrated your system. The ads may also be labeled ‘Brought by PicColor’ or ‘Powered by PicColor’. They may appear in all kinds of forms and you will find them to be extremely irritating because there will be a few of them popping up on ever web page you visit. Another thing you can expect from PicColor is to add some unwanted extensions to your browsers that will also generate ads.

How did I get infected with PicColor?

PicColor is one of the many adware applications distributed using the dubious software marketing method called software bundling. Thus, computer users acquire the application unintentionally by downloading a free program that contains the installer of PicColor. To avoid such secretly installed programs, you should always check the reliability of any application you are willing to download. Also, you should only choose reliable sources when downloading software.

Why is PicColor dangerous?

It is important to know that PicColor is not a harmful application itself. However, if you keep it on your system, you might experience some privacy-related issues because the program is capable of recording information about your online activity. Furthermore, the advertisements the program displays are not to be trusted because they may redirect you to malicious websites created by cyber criminals in order to spread malware or other infections. Avoid the ads and get rid of PicColor to protect your operating system from serious computer threats.
