Adstation – No Fun and Games
Classified as a Browser helper object, Adstation is an adware software application that you really don’t want on your computer. It is an adware that brings various unsolicited and unwanted popup ads onto your computer screen, and it doesn’t even matter if you are connected to the internet. It also opens the doors wide open for many types of other, more harmful spyware and malware to enter and make hay on your computer all day and night. You most likely came by this little gem by downloading a questionable video, or it frequently comes bundled with other freeware or shareware.
Some of the signs that you may have an Adstation problem are similar to those of most other spyware and adware: your computer is now very slow, unresponsive, and surfing the internet seems to take forever. Often your browser is hijacked to other pages that you have no control over, or very likely you’ll find porn sites before you. It can also redirect your Internet Explorer error pages to others of its choosing, and populate your computer with a never-ending supply of popup advertisements.
Ridding your computer of Adstation is not very easy to do by yourself. Like most adware programs it leaves very few traces of itself to be found. There are no icons on your system tray, and they don’t show up on your task list. Also, there is no uninstall to be found, even if you could find Adstation. There are many places it dives its way into, and often can reconstruct itself even if you did manage to find and delete some of it.
The most efficient way to deal with a piece of adware like this is to employ the services of a good antispyware solution like ZookaWare PC Cleaner. It comes with a 100% spyware removal guarantee, and will make sure to get every last shred of Adstation off your machine. Try and do it yourself, and you’ll still be at for some time to come!
