ClickCaption is an advertisement-supported program. This should not be a surprise if you have downloaded the application from the official website clickcaption.com. The information on the website clearly states that the application is supported by third-party advertisers, and so it should not surprise you that the program is followed by the suspicious in-text advertisements. Unfortunately, most ad-supported programs are considered to be risky, because they enable the activity of unfamiliar third parties. This is the reason why you should remove Highlightly, Quiknowledge, SearchSnacks, and various other ad-supported programs that work very similarly to the adware we are discussing. So, what is the easiest way to delete ClickCaption?
The files of the questionable ClickCaption are signed by CLICKCAPTION. It is unclear whether this is the name of the company or whether it is a disguise. Either way, you must consider the removal of adware. If you have downloaded it from the aforementioned website, you may have noticed a little disclaimer right below the Download button. This disclaimer urges users to recognize Intelliterm as an ad-supported program? Well, what is Intelliterm? More importantly, what does ClickCaption have to do with the Bing search? These are the questions you should ask before installing the program. If you already need to remove ClickCaption, it is obvious that you have installed it, and the “results by Bing” ads have started showing up.
According to the official promotion, ClickCaption presents Wikipedia and Bing results after a user highlights some word on any any website. The displayed pop-ups are meant to alleviate your web browsing; however, it is unclear how trustworthy the service is. The bottom line is that you will not know what site you will land on until you click the presented link. This is risky, considering that unreliable links could be slipped in as well. Do not blame Bing or Wikipedia for this, because this suspicious activity will be terminated only if you delete ClickCaption. Of course, the application itself is not dangerous, and its removal is not obligatory; however, we want to warn you that you may face some risks if you continue using the application.
ClickCaption is automatically installed onto Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox browsers together with the Click Caption Client Service. If you choose to, the application could be installed onto Google Chrome as well. You can remove ClickCaption from all browsers at the same time using the manual removal instructions below. You can also use automatic malware removal software, and you can install this software to kill two birds with one stone – to remove unreliable software and safeguard the operating system.
