TwistTinker is a totally worthless piece of software that may spam your computer screen with all kinds of third-party advertisements. Due to its functions and traits, we have labeled it as adware. This application is no different from any other adware that come from the same family called Multiplug. Practically, apart from the names everything else is more or less the same. These ads may not only be annoying, but also harmful with regard to your virtual security. Many people think that simply closing these ads can save them from the risks. Well, we have bad news for them: The ads will not stop to flow unless you remove TwistTinker from your computer. If you want to know more about the whys and how you can clean this annoying infection from your system, please continue reading our article.
TwistTinker has no official website; therefore, it is mostly spread in third-party installers. It is important to mention that these installers may contain a whole bundle of malware infections along with legitimate freeware. It is easy to download such bundles if you visit unfamiliar and suspicious file-sharing websites, and you click on fake download buttons there. Most users get their PC infected this way. Nevertheless, you usually do get an opportunity to say no to the unwanted tools and programs in the installation wizard. This step is overlooked most of the time and several infections may land silently on your system. The only chance you have against such an attack is to delete TwistTinker and all other related threats.
This adware has nothing special about it really; it simply shows useless and annoying third-party advertisements on your computer screen. There is one very important fact about these ads that you should know: They cannot be trusted. Adware creators never take responsibility for the third-party content you might be exposed to by clicking on these ads. No safety is guaranteed. Therefore, it is possible to land on a false website that is operated by criminals. That could mean more infections on your computer, but you could also be scammed in all kinds of ways. If these schemers get hold of your personal details somehow, you can be sure they have vivid imagination how to put that to maximum use. Before long, you might be a victim of online fraud and you will not even know it until it is too late. Keeping TwistTinker on your computer will only increase the chance of such scenarios to happen.
If you are ready to remove TwistTinker, all you need to do is use our instructions below and follow them step by step. It is not too complicated. Even if you are not a very experienced computer user, you can still do it. Manual removal has its own “beauty”, the feeling of victory when you see the infection gone. But do you think you are capable of going after every threat manually? It would be a tedious job for even an expert. That is why we suggest that you should use a reliable antimalware program. Such a tool can automatically take care of all your issues and safeguard your system from future malware attacks.
