Royal Raid is a typically worthless application that follows the footsteps of its identical predecessors, including Wander Burst, Blazer Deals, Gravity Space, and Jungle Net. All of these ad-supported programs were built on the notorious Injekt engine. This adware has only one real function and that is to show annoying third-party ads on your screen while you are browsing the net. In fact, this program is used by schemers to make money through these advertisements. Therefore, there is no way that this infection remains unnoticed. But turning your browsing experience miserable is only one of the issues when it comes to Royal Raid. Unfortunately, the third-party ads it spams your screen with can be unreliable and lead to malicious websites. Another undesirable aspect of this adware is that it usually comes on board with companions, i.e., other malware programs. This way, its presence can indicate multiple system security threats that should not be taken lightly. You may have noticed other unwanted changes as well on your computer that could be related to these infections, including slower Internet connection, worse system performance, browser setting changes, and so on. You should not hesitate to act if you want to use a clean and safe PC. We advise you to remove Royal Raid right now, which should be followed by all other potentially harmful applications.
The official webpage of this adware (royalraid.net) is very similar to all other clones’ pages in that it does not really reveal any useful information about the software itself. Most probably the reason behind it is that they cannot actually say anything about a product that does nothing else but litters your screen with useless and potentially harmful advertisements. There is only one promotional sentence you can find on this page that says: “Join the royal family and experience the web as it should be seen.” We do not think that anyone could figure out from this what this application is for. In fact, all you can do on this webpage is to send a message to the supposed creators. But you cannot download this program itself. This raises the question of how this adware spreads on the web if it is not available on its own website.
Unfortunately, the answer to this question is: bundles. This means that this program is mainly distributed in malicious software packages. These bundles usually contain a number of malware threats in order to spread as many infections as possible. We do not claim that all bundles are malicious, of course. The truth is that there are obviously legitimate ones as well that pack together authentic free programs and third-party tools that are useful for computer users. However, crooks use this same method for their vicious purposes. That is why you need to be extra careful when it comes to downloading free software. We recommend that you only use reputable and official sources for this. Otherwise, you may end up on an unfamiliar or fake file-sharing website whose content could be malicious. One single click on such a page could download an infected bundle that contains Royal Raid among others. Therefore, it is quite likely that this adware is only one of several potential threats on your system. We advise you to delete Royal Raid as soon as possible and identify all other infections, too. You can do that either manually or by using an automated tool, such as an online malware scanner.
This program does not seem to affect the Google Chrome browser but it does install extensions in Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. As we have already mentioned, the only purpose behind this adware program is to promote affiliate third parties’ commercials through offers, banners, and pop-ups while you are online and browsing the web. It is quite possible that this infection gathers information about your browsing activities, including your search keywords. Based on this information targeted advertisements can be sent to your screen. And that is exactly what cyber criminals want and can exploit unfortunately. Therefore, you are never safe to click on any advertisements because it could come from a malicious source. If you happen to click on a corrupt ad, you may start a chain of unwanted events, such as opening multiple new tabs with unreliable websites, download a malicious bundle, or getting scammed on fake websites. None of these possibilities would end well for you. That is why we advise you to delete Royal Raid right away.
The best part is certainly the solution when it comes to this adware since you can really easily eliminate it. This application, luckily for you, contains an uninstaller that actually does not leave any leftovers, i.e., mess on board. Please use our guide below if you do not know how to locate and run an uninstaller. Once you are done with that, you should think of the rest of the threats that may be still endangering your operating system. While there are any infections on your computer, your files, your personal sensitive information are also not safe and may be exposed to criminals. That is why we believe that the best way to protect your PC is to employ a reliable anti-malware application, such as SpyHunter.
