When a program is called AdvanceElite one would expect it to be insanely good. However, AdvanceElite is just an adware application that will spam you with countless pop-ups and other types of ads. It will render your browser unusable, and you will be exposed to potentially dangerous websites. Adware applications are obnoxious nuisances that need to be taken care of immediately. Remove AdvanceElite from your computer and then check the list of installed programs for other potential threats. Adware apps seldom travel alone, so AdvanceElite is perfect sign that there are potential intruders on your computer.
Technically, there is nothing new about AdvanceElite. This program is just another application from SuperWeb family of potentially unwanted programs. It is very similar to Rad Rater Larparus, BrowsePro and many other annoying applications. Their main purpose is to make easy money for the people who created them.
SuperWeb family tries to make an impression that its applications are there to improve your overall web browsing experience. AdvanceElite even has a homepage at advanceelite.com and it says that with the application you can “get more out of browsing.” However, clicking the “Start Now” button on the main page leads you to a new blank tab – the direct download link does not work.
It is not very surprising because adware programs seldom can be downloaded from their so-called “homepages.” The same can be applied to SuperWeb apps as well – none of them have direct download links. Thus, just like its predecessors, AdvanceElite gets distributed bundled with freeware applications. It may arrive with a variety of potentially unwanted programs. For what it’s worth – users may be unaware that they download unwanted app on their computers.
It calls for extreme caution whenever you download software from unknown websites. Even if a website looks safe and reliable and you need to double-check to avoid the likes of AdvanceElite. Also, you should read all the steps on installation wizard carefully – some of them may inform you that AdvanceElite is about to be installed, but if you just skip the steps you will miss the chance to avoid this application.
AdvanceElite says it is compatible with all main web browsers, but it does not seem to work on Google Chrome. The app bombards with pop-ups only Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. These annoying ads will appear when you access popular online shopping sites. Apart from being annoying they can also redirect you to potentially malicious websites, so you need to terminate AdvanceElite without further ado.
After manual removal, you should scan your computer with a computer security application of choice because you need to be sure that your PC is absolutely safe, and all the unwanted files and programs are gone.
