SuperWeb Ads and Deals virus removal instructions
What is SuperWeb and Deals?
The 'SuperWeb virus' is a term used to describe rogue browser extensions developed by a company called SuperWeb LLC. This company releases identical browser plug-ins under different names in order to avoid detection by legitimate antivirus and anti-spyware programs. SuperWeb browser extensions install on browsers (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox) without users' consent when downloading free software. To distribute their rogue plug-ins, this company uses a deceptive software marketing method called 'bundling'. After successful infiltration, these extensions generate various intrusive ads during Internet browsing, including search, banner, text link, transitional, interstitial, and full page advertisements.
Moreover, these plug-ins are known to track users' Internet browsing activity and record IP addresses, unique identifier numbers, operating systems, browser information, URLs visited, pages viewed, search queries entered, and other information. Whilst these browser extensions claim to make users' Internet browsing more productive (by displaying website trust ratings and enabling quick price comparison), in fact, SuperWeb plug-ins are classed as adware - they add no real value and may lead to malware infections and identity theft.
SuperWeb LLC has released over 50 browser extensions with identical functionality under different names. Examples include Solteratop, Internet Blast, Searchadence, amongst many others. Deceptive free software 'download clients' are a common source of adware infections such as these. To avoid installation of SuperWeb potentially unwanted applications, computer users should be attentive when downloading free software - if your download is managed by a download client, be sure to opt-out of installation of advertised browser plug-ins by clicking the 'decline' button. When installing downloaded freeware, choose the 'Advanced' or 'Custom' installation options, rather than 'Typical' or 'Quick' - this reveals installation of any 'bundled' browser extensions.
SuperWeb adware generates various intrusive advertisements, including trust rating ads, compare prices ads, related searches ads, inline and deal ads.
