Downloading freeware applications from third-party websites should be the last thing you do because it is not a fail-proof practice. You might end up having Radio Canyon on your computer. This application says that it has a useful function, but in reality it is nothing but an adware application that arrives at your computer to make easy money. We are not trying to say that Radio Canyon is a dangerous application, but adware programs should not be trusted 100%. If you care about your system’s security, you will remove Radio Canyon today.
What is more, we should point out that Radio Canyon seldom arrives at a target system alone. Adware programs usually do not have direct download links, and their websites do not function properly. That being said, Radio Canyon gets distributed bundled freeware applications, just like Lyrics Monkey, PlusHD, TornTV and other adware applications that are based on CrossRider engine. These adware programs may make an impression that they provide users with useful functions, but the truth is that they simply want to generate financial profit for their creators. Radio Canyon does not try to infect you with malware, but it could be exploited by a malevolent third party in order to promote corrupted content.
When Radio Canyon enters your computer, it gets installed on Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer web browsers. This adware application does not seem to work on Google Chrome web browser, but even so it can still get installed on the system. When the program is up and running, Radio Canyon starts collecting data on your web browsing habits. This information is necessary to create your online profile. Later on, Radio Canyon generates commercial pop-up ads. They look like coupons that should help you purchase something at a lower price. However, users are strongly discouraged to click any of the ads because they can lead to unreliable websites.
Radio Canyon may inadvertently redirect you to unfamiliar websites because it does not review the ad content. Such adware applications outsource the ad content from third-party advertising networks, and so, almost anyone can embed their content into Radio Canyon ads as long as they know how to do it. This proves that Radio Canyon is vulnerable to a third-party exploitation, and if you click the ads without thinking, in the long run you could end up being infected with malware.
Do not allow this to happen – remove Radio Canyon right now. Open Control panel and uninstall the application manually. To ensure that the manual removal was successful, please run a full system scan with the SpyHunter free scanner, and invest in a licensed antispyware tool if need be.
