Are you being flooded by annoying commercial advertisements? It could be that you have recently installed Polished Patterns on your computer. This application is an adware program that has been created to generate financial profit for its developers. Although Polished Patterns does not try to steal your money like various malicious programs, it is still strongly recommended that you remove it from your computer. Scroll down to the bottom of this article for the manual removal instructions, and do not forget that you should also scan your PC with a computer security application. This way you will no longer have any doubts that your system is completely safe.
Luckily, Polished Patterns is not a malicious infection that would slither into your computer behind your back. You probably have not noticed that, but this program gets installed on the target system along with a number of other freeware applications. In other words, you download Polished Patterns and install it on your computer willingly. If you do not know how this might have happened, itusually occurs when users download freeware applications from third-party sources. For example, if you are about to download some program from a third-party website, you should think twice before you do it, because this is the way Polished Patterns could end up in your system.
Polished Patterns comes from the SuperWeb family, which includes a vast number of similar adware applications. In other words, Polished Patterns does everything its predecessors have done, and there is nothing new we could tell you about it. As such, the application is practically identical to Spark Cast, LittleWeaver, ZoneTrek, and many other SuperWeb programs. All of them function as browser extensions that are supposed to provide you with relevant information when you browse the web.
According to the official website via polishedpatterns.com, this application is supposed to “illuminate your searchers.” Polished Patterns is also supposedly compatible with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer, but our research suggests that the newest Google Chrome versions block this application. When a web browser blocks a particular extension, it means that the extension is not reliable and it can cause specific security issues. In this case, we can definitely say that Polished Patterns does not try to infect you with malware, but it is not wise to keep it on your system. The reason we suggest removing Polished Patterns for good is that the program could be easily exploited by malevolent third parties.
Not only does Polished Patterns collect information on your web browsing habits, the program also displays commercial advertisements that you must have noticed already. These ads could be extremely annoying, but, if that were all, it would not be such a problem. The thing is that Polished Patterns can be misused by cyber criminals to promote their corrupted content, so that the next time you click Polished Patterns ads, you could be redirected to a malware-related website.
Most of the time, Polished Patterns merely collects money via the pay-per-click system, but, in the worst case scenario, this could also lead to a severe infection that would result in an ultimate system crash. This could be easily avoided by deleting Polished Patterns from your system manually. A full system scan with the SpyHunter free scanner might also help you determine whether you have more unwanted applications running on your system. Thus, do everything you can to protect your system from potential threats.
