Can’t Remove RainbowPrices ads? This page includes detailed ads by RainbowPrices Removal instructions!
Pop-up ads all over the place, corrupted web links everywhere, a slow, overwhelmed PC and a very frustrated PC user – that is a just a small part of the adventures that RainbowPrices has in store. This application has the appearance of being completely harmless and genuinely useful. In case you have any experience with virtual threats, however, you know this is precisely the kind of program that causes the most trouble. Classified as adware and a potentially unwanted program (PUP), this computer infection may not shine with originality but it’s efficient enough to create absolute chaos on your computer.
How did I get infected with?
It would be really impressive if you answered that question. However, adware programs usually don’t manifest their installation process and sneak onto your computer without your knowledge. To prevent this, you should only trust legitimate websites and even then it’s highly recommendable to choose the Advanced/Custom option in the Setup Wizard. Yes, it will cost you time. But getting rid of a computer virus could cost you much more. Don’t risk your own safety or the safety of your device, pay attention to everything that you download and don’t forget that the cyber world is filled with dangers.
Why are these ads dangerous?
This program displays ads. However innocent this may sound, RainbowPrices can cause you some serious damage if given enough time. Once you’re infected, your browser (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox) will be the first to experience the negative effects this virus has. RainbowPrices adds a browser extension which is only here so you can view commercials. The fact that you neither want nor need to see them is absolutely irrelevant. The countless pop-ups, pop-unders, banners, keywords and so on will only end when you make the right decision to remove RainbowPrices from your device. Nonetheless, the real danger about this program lays in the source of those ads. As they are brought to you by hackers, and you know that hackers don’t have the reputation of caring and considering people, the ads hide numerous dangers. In most cases hackers get paid using the popular pay-per-click system. This is a highly appreciated among hackers technique that allows them to generate profit in accordance with the number of clicks on a certain page. To get your click, cyber criminals will not stop at anything. They can track your online activities (and they do it), they collect browsing history, search queries and cookies and they use all that personal information to adjust the commercials and make them attractive to you. What’s truly important to them is the revenue, not your security. Keep in mind that no one can guarantee you that the web link you’re about to click is safe. The only way to find out if the link is corrupted or not is by clicking it and you already know there is too much at stake. Another trap you might fall into is trusting a fake advertisement which one goal is to include you in some kind of a scam and, eventually, take your money. You can practically trust nothing you see on your computer screen and this leaves you with no other option than to delete the virus. Don’t hesitate and make sure RainbowPrices is completely uninstalled. You can follow the description bellow to learn how to get rid of this cyber intruder.
