What Is ABetterInternet and How Can I Get Rid Of It?
ABetterInternet is a browser helper object (BHO) which delivers advertising and other promotional messages through the use of popups and other ad formats while you are surfing the internet. It also hijacks your browser, redirecting URLs to sites of its choosing, where you have the opportunity to see even more ads! It can do this and more, as well as update itself, without any help from you! It can also install other third party software and add new and exciting links on your desktop! (None of which you want!) ABetterInternet also can record your computer activity, and send that info on to someone you wouldn’t want to have it.
Some of the signs you may have an ABetterInternet infection are a slow system, punctuated by frequent system crashes, many, many popups that your popup blocker seems to be unable to deal with, and a great deal of your system resources being used up in the form of increased bandwidth. It also can override any other adware present on your computer. This isn’t necessarily a good thing: you’re still infected with this beast and it’s just being the baddest boy of the bunch.
Getting rid of ABetterInternet by yourself is not a simple matter. It more than likely will have deeply embedded itself into your system, with a myriad of files you’d need to dig through and delete, that is, if you knew how to safely do this without possibly compromising the very operation of your computer. Since most of us aren’t able to do this, we need to enlist help. I’ve found that the best way for me to deal with infections of this type is with the antipspyware software ZookaWare PC Cleaner. It offers a free scan and a 100% money back guarantee to remove all spyware.
