SpeedChecker removal instructions

What is SpeedChecker?

Developed by Virtue Interactive Ltd, SpeedChecker is a rogue application claiming to enable users to monitor their Internet speed. While this functionality may seem legitimate and useful, be aware that SpeedChecker is categorized as adware or a potentially unwanted program (PUP). These associations are made due to a deceptive software marketing method called 'bundling' employed by SpeedChecker to install on Internet browsers without users' consent. Bundling allows developers to stealthily distribute their applications together with other software, and therefore, most users inadvertently install SpeedChecker during download of free software from freeware download websites. Following successful infiltration on Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome, SpeedChecker generates numerous intrusive online advertisements including banner, pop-up/under, in-text, and display ads. There is a high probability that clicking these advertisements will cause high-risk adware or malware infections.
