CheckEmailsQuicker adware removal instructions
What is CheckEmailsQuicker?
CheckEmailsQuicker is a piece of software, endorsed as a tool for easy access to email accounts also capable of storing log-in credentials (i.e. usernames and passwords). Due to running intrusive advertisement campaigns, CheckEmailsQuicker is classified as adware. Since most users download/install it unintentionally, it is considered to be a PUA (Potentially Unwanted Application) as well.
Adware enables the placement of third party graphical content - typically, on any visited website. In other words, software of this type delivers pop-ups, banners, surveys, coupons, full-page and other intrusive ads. They are a major nuisance, as the adverts slow down the browsing speed and site visibility (by overlaying webpage content). Furthermore, intrusive advertisements pose a threat to device and user safety. Since once clicked on, the adverts redirect to various unreliable, misleading, rogue, deceptive/scam, compromised and malicious websites. Intrusive ads can even be triggered (by being clicked) to execute scripts, designed to stealthily download/install software (e.g. PUAs).
Most PUAs (adware included) have data tracking abilities. They can monitor browsing activity (URLs visited, pages viewed, search queries typed, etc.) and collect vulnerable information extracted from it (IP addresses, geolocations and other details). The collected data usually contains personally identifiable information. What is more, PUA developers monetize this data by sharing it with and/or selling it to third parties (potentially, cyber criminals). In summary, presence of unwanted software on devices can result in system infections, severe privacy issues, financial losses and even identity theft. To ensure device integrity and user privacy, all suspicious applications and browser extensions/plug-ins - must be eliminated immediately upon detection.

To eliminate possible malware infections, scan your computer with legitimate antivirus software. Our security researchers recommend using Malwarebytes.
WikiNow, PopBlock+, The Rocket Arcade, OneUpdater and Easy Weather Today Promos are some examples of adware. This software typically appears legitimate and offers a wide variety of "useful" features. However, the functionalities rarely work as advertised and in most cases - they do not work at all. In fact, this applies to practically all PUAs. Functionality and user safety are irrelevant, as the only goal of unwanted apps is to generate profit for the developers. Therefore, instead of delivering on any promises, PUAs can run intrusive advertisement campaigns, force-open untrustworthy and malicious webpages, hijack browsers and collect private information.
How did CheckEmailsQuicker install on my computer?
Some PUAs (e.g. CheckEmailsQuicker) have "official" promotional websites, from which they can be downloaded and/or purchased. These applications are also proliferated via download/installation setups of other programs. This deceptive marketing tactic of pre-packing ordinary software with unwanted or malicious additions - is called "bundling". Rushed download/installation processes (e.g. ignored terms, skipped steps and sections, etc.) increase the risk of inadvertently allowing bundled content into the system. Intrusive advertisements spread PUAs as well. Upon being clicked, the ads can execute scripts to make downloads/installations without user permission.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
It is important to research software products before download/installation and/or purchase. All downloads must be done from official and verified sources. Untrustworthy download channels, e.g. unofficial and free file-hosting sites, Peer-to-Peer sharing networks (Torrent clients, Gnutella, eMule, etc.) and other third party downloaders. When downloading/installing, it is recommended to read terms, study all available options, use the "Custom" or "Advanced" settings and opt-out from supplementary apps, tools, features and other additions. Intrusive adverts appear legitimate, however they redirect to highly questionable websites (e.g. gambling, pornography, adult-dating, etc.). In case of encounters with ads and/or redirects of this kind, the system must be inspected and all suspect applications and browser extensions/plug-ins detected - removed immediately from it. If your computer is already infected with CheckEmailsQuicker, we recommend running a scan with Malwarebytes for Windows to automatically eliminate this adware.
