Super Web is making a return after a period of silence with the newest addition to its already large fleet of adware applications. The name of the infection responsible for this article is Web Layers. The application is not innovative by any measure, since it is only a clone of adware apps released prior to this one. Our researchers recommend that you remove this infection before other malware programs start creeping in. Indeed, Web Layers and many like it is one of the many vehicles used for distributing malicious software. So let us delve deeper into the reasons why you should remove this program from your PC.
SuperWeb is a big name in the cyber security industry, since it is responsible for hundreds of adware applications that have been compromising the security of computers for at least several years now. Razor Web, Square Corner, Box for You, Any Angle, and many more are members of the SuperWeb fleet of malicious infections. The developers always make sure to create a promotional website for their infections to give the users a feel of legitimacy. But the websites all lock the same. Only the name and the background picture differ from website to website.
In any case, Web Layers is advertised on Weblayers.co, but as always, you cannot download the application from the website, and it is definitely a good thing too. However, the developers have long ago made arrangements with the owners of freeware sharing websites to include their adware in software bundles that unwary users install when they rush through the installation process. Remember that you have a choice to remove unwanted additional application before initiating the installation process by unchecking a certain checkbox.
However, if Web Layers does find a way into your computer, prepare for loads of advertisements. The application can display in-texts, banners, coupons, and pop-ups. Some of them will be labeled "Ads by Web Layers" or "Provided by Web Layers," but that is not always the case. The content is provided by unknown entities, meaning that no one would be able trace the people responsible if the ads prove to be misleading or fictitious. And in some cases they are. There have been cases when users got their computers infected with malicious programs that caused a lot of damage to the computers software, hardware, and even hurt the users financially. So there is no justification for having this application on your computer. Therefore, we advise that you remove Web Layers from your computer as soon as possible.
That is all the information we can provide about this infection. It does not stand out from previous SuperWeb “creations.” Apart from displaying unreliable advertisements, the application does not do anything else. This seemingly irrelevant application can serve as a backdoor for far more dangerous infections to enter your computer, and those programs could wreak havoc on it. So, feel free to use the instructions we have provided to get rid of this infection permanently.
