Were you surprised to see ads instead of information about your favorite sports teams? DraftFactor is a program that should provide this information, but, instead, it injects advertisements, which is why we classify it as adware or advertising-supported software. Although users can download this program from its official website, draftfactor.com, many of them download it with the help of third-party software distributors. In both cases, additional programs are presented along with this adware. If you use the official downloader, InstallCore, you might be introduced to Sale Planet, Enter Voyage, Astro Find, and other SuperWeb adware, as well as potentially unwanted programs and hijackers. If you trust unfamiliar installers, similar and more malicious programs could be offered for installation. We not only do not recommend installing this software, we also urge you to delete DraftFactor as soon as you can.
Our researchers have found that DraftFactor is very similar to AhoyTraveler, BeautyBrilliant, HealthySure, and several other advertising-supported programs. All of these programs promise beneficial services but end up showing advertisements that have little or nothing to do with the initial promises. In most cases, these programs promote redtag-specials.com offers via their interfaces. On top of that, they employ Internet Explorer to show additional ads. According to the information provided via the Terms and Conditions document – which you can find on the official website – CouponAhoy provides the advertising services, but not all parties are disclosed. Unfortunately, third-party advertisers might have the power to employ tracking cookies and collect data about you. Of course, not everyone’s out there to get you, but are you completely sure that the parties working with this suspicious adware are trustworthy? If you have the slightest doubt about the intentions and activity of unfamiliar parties, you should remove adware.
The advertisements injected by DraftFactor and the parties associated with it can be based on your browsing history. There is no surprise that users would much rather interact with ads that interest them rather than with random advertisements. Due to this, tracking cookies, web beacons, and other technologies are employed to record your browsing activity. Your browsing history is then analyzed to figure out which ads to inject. Advertising-supported software can also take a different route, which is to show ads that would attract all users. That might include prize giveaways and seemingly important software updates. These updates might hide other unreliable or malicious programs, and prize giveaways might be used to record your email address, full name, and other sensitive information. Do you understand why this is dangerous? For example, if you disclose your email address, your inbox could be flooded with spam! As you might know, spam emails are often used for the distribution of ransomware and Trojans, as well as the extortion of information.
You must know how to uninstall unwanted software, as it is one of the most basic tasks. If you have never uninstalled software, remove DraftFactor using the guide below. The good news is that no files will be left behind after you uninstall this adware, and this is not always the case. Of course, we cannot guarantee that it will be just as easy to eliminate all other threats active on your Windows operating system. If you are having trouble identifying them, run a full system scan. If you have no clue how to eliminate them, employ an automatic malware remover. Whatever method you choose, you have to make sure that all threats are eliminated before you can go back to using your PC in a normal manner.
