Bugfixxer Ads are shown by an advertising-supported application (adware) named HahoMedia. These ads are not named after the adware program; however, Bugfixxer appears in front of its name not without a reason. Specialists explain that ads are called like that because Bugfixxer is a service that shows them. It has been found that advertisements provided by this service will display all kinds of advertisements promoting websites, products, and different services; however, they are definitely not shown for you in order to keep you updated. It is evident that Bugfixxer Ads are displayed to increase the traffic rate of third-party websites. These ads are not only useless, but also very annoying because they will keep appearing on websites that have never shown advertisements before. We also have to emphasize that Bugfixxer Ads might expose users to potential threats.

If you see Bugfixxer Ads on your screen, it means that you have an ad-supported program HahoMedia installed on your computer. This adware does not install add-ons to display advertisements on websites; however, you will definitely notice new processes in the Task Manager. Specialists have noticed that this adware program creates two processes: Injector.exe and InjectorServiceProject.exe. From a technical perspective, the adware program will also create a folder Hahomedia with all its main files in C:\Program Files (x86) or C:\Program Files. Fortunately, it does not apply modifications to the system registry.

Even though an ad-supported program does not seem to be harmful at all, it has been noticed that the ads Bugfixxer shows might redirect users to dangerous third-party websites. Of course, the adware program will not protect you from harm because it was created for an entirely different purpose. According to specialists at 411-spyware.com, there is a possibility that these ads will not only redirect to other websites if you click on any of them, but it is also very likely that a promoted undesirable application will be installed on the computer immediately. What is more, it has been observed that you might see pop-ups claiming that you need to update your Java or another program. Do not click on the Install button placed on such ads because you will download a bunch of threats on the computer. We hope that you have understood that it is better not to pay attention to these advertisements even though they are quite interesting and look good.

The HahoMedia adware claims that its main goal is to “give you the best possible shopping & Internet Browsing experience”; however, it displays tons of Bugfixxer Ads. In order to personalize them, this piece of software will gather details about users’ browsing data and their preferences. The Privacy Policy document available on the official website of this adware program clearly says that users allow this adware to collect personal and non-personal information by installing and keeping it. Personal information includes details you voluntarily submit about yourself, whereas non-personally identifiable information consists of such details as the name of the browser, the type of computer, the type of OS, the Internet service provider, and other technical details. There is only one way to stop Bugfixxer Ads from appearing on your screen and ensure the safety of the privacy – you need to eliminate an adware program from the system. Be more cautious in the future in order not to encounter other threats that you will come across again if you surf the Internet on a daily basis.

Even though the adware program that shows Bugfixxer Ads has an uninstaller in Control Panel, it seems that it does not remove the main folder from %PROGRAMFILES(x86) (%PROGRAMFILES). In other words, the uninstaller does not work properly. If it happens that it has not removed the adware fully for you too, you need to eliminate the application manually. Use instructions provided below the article. If you want to take care of it extremely quickly, you can scan your system with an antimalware scanner, e.g SpyHunter instead of trying to get rid of this program manually.
