RambleRoam virus removal instructions
What is RambleRoam?
RambleRoam is a potentially unwanted application developed by SuperWeb LLC. It pledges to improve user's Internet browsing quality by showing related content containing websites, website trust ratings, enable comparison shopping, coupons, and adding other useful functionality. Even though RambleRoam might seem as a legitimate add-on, Internet users should know that it is actually categorized as an adware. This plugin is compatible with Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. It uses a deceptive software marketing method called bundling (stealthy installation of additional programs along with the chosen software) to install on user's Internet browsers without a permission. After a successful infiltration it constantly monitors user's Internet browsing by recording diverse software and hardware information, like URL's visited, pages viewed, entered search queries, unique identifier number, IP address, and other similar information. Moreover, RambleRoam generates various types of intrusive online advertisements, including: transitional, interstitial, banner, text-link, search, and full page ads.
Having RambleRoam or any other similar adware on one's computer may lead to serious privacy issues, identity theft or malware infections. SuperWeb LLC has released more than a hundred of rogue browser extensions (for example: Webporpoise, Hatchiho, Norpalla), that are identical to RambleRoam. This company is releasing identical, differently named browser plug-ins with an intention to avoid the detection by legitimate anti-virus and anti-spyware programs. Neither RambleRoam, nor any other of these browser extensions add any true value for the user. Their main purpose is to generate revenue by showing obtrusive online advertisements.
Computer users should be aware that a large part of adware is distributed via download clients in freeware download websites, like softonic.com, soft32.com, download.com, and many other. Most of the current freeware download websites are using small download programs (download clients) to monetize their free services by offering users to install advertised browser extensions together with the chosen software. Most commonly reckless freeware installation ends up in adware or malware infections. This can be prevented by closely observing freeware download process and declining the offered installation of additional applications. If you're installing the already downloaded software, always chose "Custom" or "Advanced" installation options, instead of "Quick" or "Typical", this step will reveal all the bundled applications that are trying to install on your computer and you'll be able to decline their installation. Internet users, who have already installed RambleRoam and now see "RambleRoam Deals", "Ads by RambleRoam" and "Powered by RambleRoam" advertisements when browsing the Internet should follow this removal guide and remove RumbleRoam adware from their Internet browsers.
