Aurora – Not A Pretty Sight!
Aurora is an adware program that creates and shows ads in the form of popup advertisements and toolbars that are seemingly there for your convenience, but offer little of anything useful, just a steady stream of unsolicited ads that fast become quite annoying, as well as extremely harmful to your computer. Aurora is part of the ABetterInternet family, and in no way makes anything better! Aurora hogs precious system resources and bandwidth, and will most certainly lead to things like having your browser simply shut down or your screen freeze. Web surfing becomes an exercise in endless patience, and if you are unfortunate enough to have to use this computer for work, you may soon find yourself not working much, until you can find a way to rid yourself of Aurora.
What’s even more unkind is that this kind of adware can open up backdoors for all sorts of other more harmful spyware and adware to come and set up shop in your computer. This is by far the real threat of this kind of adware. Once these other guys start coming around and begin to totally compromise your system and by extension any personal information that’s on it, you’ve now found yourself saddled with a much larger problem than a few measly popups.
Getting rid of Aurora isn’t any piece of cake either. It can and does attach itself deep within your computer, making removing it a very large task. Trying to remove it yourself is almost a recipe for doom in itself. Unless you’re a very capable tech with lots of time to kill, you’d be much better off seeking an antispyware software solution to your problems. There are quite a few of them out there, but my favorite is ZookaWare PC Cleaner, which comes with a 100% spyware removal guarantee. ZookaWare PC Cleaner will rid your computer of all traces of Aurora, along with any other spyware or adware that has found a home in your PC. Give it a try and you’ll see I’m right!
