When you hear the name Faster Web, you probably think that this program could improve your net browsing speed or enhance your online experience. Unfortunately, this application is an adware program that only slows down your browser and exposes you to annoying third-party websites. Some of those sites may also be associated with malware distribution networks, so, unless you remove Faster Web from your PC immediately, you will risk malware infection and even financial theft. Needless to say, there are more adware programs installed on your PC, and you definitely have to take care of them all at once.
We would like to point out that adware programs seldom enter target systems surreptitiously. It is true that users may not be aware they are installing adware on their computers, but Faster Web and other similar applications do not try to hide their presence. In fact, it is very likely that you are informed about the oncoming installation when you go through the setup wizard, but users tend to breeze through the installation process without bothering to read all the important steps. As a result, Faster Web and many other unwanted applications are installed on your computer.
You most probably downloaded Faster Web along with OverLook Crawler, Hyper Browser, Coupoon, and many other adware applications. Our security researchers say that this application usually travels around in the Amonetize bundles, so if you are dealing with one adware program, the chances are you will need to terminate a whole lot of them.
Faster Web is based on the same engine as the iDeals adware program. They come forth supposedly offering you some “useful” function while in fact all they want to do is earn money for their developers. As far as Faster Web is concerned, this program does that by opening a website each time you click on an outgoing link that is embedded in the page you have just visited. This adware program may affect a wide range of commercial ads that appear on a number of websites. If is a site has advertising space, it is very likely that it will be hogged by adware should you install any on your computer.
Thus, when you click the Faster Web ads, the program will open the getideals.com website, where you supposedly should find more alluring online deals. What’s more, you may also encounter this adware on such websites as allsportsmag.com, prosportslive.com, t.boomeranggmail.com, and many others. As you can see, the program may target users who are into online betting, so you need to keep your guard up when you browse such websites.
The biggest security concern associated with this application is that it may inadvertently promote malicious content. Faster Web and other adware programs are not responsible for third-party content security, so virtually anyone can embed their links into the Faster Web ads. If you are particularly unlucky, you might land on a site that distributes Trojans, rogues, or ransomware.
Before any of that happens, make sure you get rid of Faster Web immediately. Please follow the manual removal instructions below to delete this application.
