What Is BetterSurf?

BetterSurf can be classified as an adware program because it displays advertisements to users when they browse the web pages. Malicious toolbars and add-ons are installed to browsers, which can explain why your browsers can be taken controlled by BetterSurf. All your browsers including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox can be affected. Whenever you open your browsers, BetterSurf pops up and displays various kinds of advertisements related to commercial products, computer optimizer programs, clothes, coupons codes and so on. These annoying pop-ups disturb users’ online activities heavily, while users seem to have no idea how to stop those ads because they keep popping up over and over again. Besides the ads pop-ups, BetterSurf can change the default browser settings such as homepages, DNS settings, default search engines and so on. Sometimes users’ search results can be redirected to suspicious web pages, and other infections and threats can be installed to the compromised computer in this way. The ads and links it shows you can also contain computer infections. Users may download those computer infections if they click on those ads and links.

Therefore, users are recommended to remove BetterSurf as soon as possible to save your browsers and personal information. On the other hand, BetterSurf will drop malicious files and registry entries to the infected system. Users have to remove those files and entries to get rid of BetterSurf completely from their computer.

BetterSurf comes to the compromised computer with other downloads from the Internet. Hacked web sites and spam email attachments are effective distribution ways.
