How to remove MyBestOffersToday adware

PUP Adware No Comments »

MyBestOffersToday is a program that displays daily free offers and also displays advertisements directly on your desktop. It shows these offers and advertisements using multiple methods such as desktop pop-ups, the MyBestOffersToday widget, and by opening your browser and displaying them. When installed, MyBestOffersToday will be configured to run automatically and listen in the background with no indication that the program is running other than the randomly displayed advertisements.

While running MyBestOffersToday will randomly display advertisements throughout the day. The only advertisement, though, that is labeled as My Best Offers Today is their daily offer widget. This widget will display offers that change daily and pop-up in a little widget from your Windows taskbar.

TabNav and Appimaker Certificate Removal guide

PUP Adware No Comments »

TabNav is a program that displays advertisements and collects information on the sites that you visit. It does this by installing a Layered Service Provider that is able to examine and manipulate all the network data that you transmit and receive on your computer. Using this ability, TabNav can easily inject ads into the web sites that you visit and collect information about your browsing habits. TabNav also installs a root certificate into Windows called appimaker. This root certificate allows it to see SSL traffic so that it is able to inject ads even into encrypted connections. Unfortunately, this also gives it the ability to see all data you transmit over an encrypted SSL connection including login information. For example, in the picture below you see that the appimaker certificate is being used to encrypt the connection between a computer and the Citibank banking site.

Ads by SpeeditUp Removal Guide

PUP Adware No Comments »

SpeeditUp is a program that claims it checks your Internet connection for speed and performance issues. This in itself is not a bad thing, but SpeeditUp also displays intrusive advertisements on your desktop and on web sites that you visit. When visiting web sites, SpeeditUp will display ads in a way that makes it difficult to navigate or read the site. These ads will be labeled Ads by SpeeditUp and take up a large amount of a site’s visibility and are typically displayed over the the site’s content. Even more concerning, many of the ads that are displayed by SpeeditUp are for further adware installers that would cause even more damage to your computer.

Cloudscout Ads and CloudGuard Removal Guide

PUP Adware No Comments »

If you are seeing advertisements while browsing the web that are labeled Ads by Cloudscout then you have the adware program called CloudGuard installed on your computer. CloudGuard claims that it is a parental control and protection software that blocks access to adult, gambling, and potentially dangerous sites. In my testing of this software I was never once blocked from visiting unsavory sites, but I was bombarded by Cloudscout advertisements on almost every site I visited. This is because CloudGuard injects its own ads into sites you visit even if those sites do not normally display ads. These injected Cloudscout ads are done in an intrusive manner and make it difficult to use web sites that are normally easy to read and navigate.
