Clean Grill Grates Adware

Clean Grill Grates is a rogue application that typically infiltrates systems without users' consent. According to their website, Clean Grill Grates is legitimate and virus-free, however, this app delivers intrusive advertisements and records sensitive data. For these reasons, Clean Grill Grates is categorized as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) and adware. Following infiltration, Clean Grill Grates delivers intrusive ads (for example, pop-ups, banners, coupons, etc.) To achieve this, adware-type applications employ various tools that enable placement of third party graphical content on any site. Therefore, the ads often diminish the browsing experience by concealing visited website content. Furthermore, these advertisements lead to infectious sites and execute scripts that download and install malware. Therefore, even accidental clicks can result in high-risk computer infections.
