How did I get infected with?

Rad Raven’s official web page is identical to the web pages of other ad-supported applications like Browser Gloss, EnterDigital, AppEnable, and many others. All these programs have been created by the infamous SuperWeb LLC and cannot be downloaded directly from their homepages. They are distributed using deceptive methods. One such method is known as software bundling and it involves silent installation of additional applications. This occurs when you download freeware from unreliable sources. Rad Raven can also be acquired when you open spam email attachments or when you click ads found on suspicious web pages or caused by another adware program.

It is important to remember that any of the content promoted by Rad Raven ads is deceptive. Thus, if actually agree to download any program or use a coupon to buy something at a lower price, you will probably end up installing malware or purchasing a non-existing item. The reason for this is that Rad Raven is sponsored by anonymous third parties and the displayed ads represent the content of these third parties. You will notice that although some of the ads are quite random, others will seem as if they were custom-made for you. This is due to the fact that Rad Raven collects information related to your web usage, which is used to create more relevant ads.
