WorkatHomeStar is an application that should enable users work from home and earn extra cash. Everybody likes easy money, so it is not surprising at all that so many people download and install this application. Yes, there are hundreds of people who get this program from its official website workathomestar.com. Of course, some people also detect WorkatHomeStar and have no clue how it has entered the system. It does not really matter whether you have downloaded and installed this program yourself or if it has sneaked onto your system without permission because you will still need to erase it if you wish to protect your system from harm. We understand that users who encounter adware for the first time might not know anything about its removal. Therefore, we suggest reading this article from beginning to end carefully. We are sure that you will find answers to all your questions associated with the deletion of this adware in this report.
Even though the application looks quite trustworthy, we cannot call it reliable because it has been found that WorkatHomeStar might cause harm to your computer. This might happen rather quickly because it is enough to click on a wrong link or some kind of untrustworthy commercial advertisement in order to end up on a hacked webpage containing malicious software. Yes, you have understood correctly – this adware program is going to load various deals and advertisements and might open windows with various offers, surveys, etc. This is the main reason why it is called an ad-supported program. Specialists at 411-spyware.com have also managed to find out that this application will only load different windows because it does not even have an interface. Not all the windows which you will see after double-clicking on a shortcut of WorkatHomeStar are bad; however, there is still a risk that they will contain unreliable links.
We suggest that you remove WorkatHomeStar not only because it will display various offers, ads, and cause redirections to unreliable third-party web pages, but also because this program might gather information about you and what you do on the web. It has been found that this program will probably gather two types of information: personal and non-personally identifiable. WorkatHomeStar will not know anything about you if you do not provide your personal information (e.g. name, surname, and birth date) yourself. In case of non-personally identifiable information, it will be recorded automatically and nobody will ask your permission to do that. Specialists say that adware programs are interested in websites users tend to visit, advertisements and links that attract their attention, IP address, and other details about the system. If you do not wish to reveal this information, you need to remove WorkatHomeStar in order to stop all its activities. Further in this article you will be instructed how to do that.
Specialists working at 411-spyware.com have decided to tell users how adware travels. They hope that this will help them to prevent adware programs from sneaking onto their systems in the future. First of all, it has been found that adware tends to travel in software bundles together with freeware or other untrustworthy applications, e.g. MyPCBackUp. These software bundles can be downloaded if a user tries to get a program from softonic.com or a similar file-sharing website. Secondly, adware might enter if you keep clicking on ads and suspicious links on third-party web pages. You can try to protect the system yourself; however, this is not so easy to ensure the safety of the system. Therefore, we suggest that you better install a security tool on your computer.
Adware programs are not very dangerous, but they might still cause harm to your computer rather quickly. Therefore, it would be best to eliminate them from the system. The WorkatHomeStar adware can be removed from Control Panel because it has an uninstall entry there. If the uninstaller does not work, scan your system with an automatic malware remover, such as SpyHunter. This tool can be downloaded from our web page.
