When we research Donkick adware application, the first thing we are led to is donkick.net. It is the program’s main homepage, but it does not seem like it can provide us with any useful information. The homepage is merely an empty shell devised to make Donkick look like a legitimate browser extension. The reality is that the website does not contribute to the program’s distribution in any way. This is only one of the reasons why you should remove Donkick right away. It is obvious that you cannot trust this application; the sooner you get rid of it, the better.
The fact that donkick.net does not have a working download link is not surprising. Donkick is yet another application from the SuperWeb family, and all adware programs from this group do not have direct download links. This also means that Donkick gets distributed via third-party installers, just like Boxed Books, Karatoh, Rad Raven, and many other applications. They are not extreme computer security threats, but, if you have Donkick on your computer, it is the first sign that something went terribly wrong and that you have installed many unwanted programs. If you want to find out which programs you need to remove, scan your computer with a licensed antispyware tool.
Donkick.net claims that Donkick is compatible with Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Mozilla Firefox web browsers. Nevertheless, once you get this application installed, you can see that it does not work with Google Chrome. Our research shows that the newest Chrome versions successfully block Donkick and its extension. On the other hand, it does not mean that you should breathe a sigh of relief. Even if Donkick does not appear in your browser, the application is still there on your computer.
This program tracks your web browsing data in order to generate customized advertisements. Donkick ads appear on the most popular shopping websites, and it makes the impression that they are displayed in order to help you save money on your purchases. Unfortunately, that is not exactly the truth. Donkick displays ads so that its developers can generate financial profit via a pay-per-click system. Although this system does not bring any direct harm to the user, it does not benefit you in any way, either.
On top of that, if Donkick gets exploited by a malevolent third party, some of the ads might contain outgoing links to malicious websites. You should avoid any potential security threats by uninstalling Donkick right now.
Follow the instructions below for manual Donkick removal. When you are done, scan your computer with a legitimate computer security application. As mentioned above, Donkick comes with other adware programs, so you need to be sure that your computer is absolutely safe and clean.
