Bugfixxer Ads Removal Guide

Do you know what Bugfixxer Ads is?

Bugfixxer Ads is nothing more than an ad-supported application that you should remove at your earliest convenience because it can display unasked-for advertisements that may slow down your browser, cause errors and hinder your browsing experience overall. However, our biggest concern is that this application’s advertisements can come from untrustworthy sources. Therefore, some of its advertisements can pose a threat to your computer’s security. You should avoid subjecting your computer to such applications, but we understand that it is not always possible. However, a good antimalware tool can fix this issue. In this article we are going to talk about the most important aspects of this application, so please read it if you happen to have this app on your PC.

Let us begin our analysis with a brief overview of this app’s background. We have found that it was developed by a web monetization company called HahoMedia which is also the name of its first adware that was released in mid-2014. Bugfixxer Ads is one of its newest releases, and it is also a clone of Syssecure Ads. This company has a dedicated at HahoMedia.com, but it has little to no information about the company’s vision, only documentation, such as the privacy policy composed by a privacy policy-writing website. This only goes to show how unprofessional this company is. Nevertheless, it is evident that is purpose is to make money from online advertising.

We want to stress that this online adverting company uses dishonest methods to distribute Bugfixxer Ads as widely as possible. We have received information saying that its developers have cut deals with freeware websites to bundle it with freeware and feature the bundles on their respective websites. However, the catch is that the installers they use hide this adware and do not state that in addition to a particular program you will also get Bugfixxer Ads. You might be able to remove it from the setup by selecting custom installation, but that may not always be the case. In summary, this adware comes from a largely unknown adware developer that employs deceptive methods to install it on the computers of unsuspecting users.

When your computer is infected with Bugfixxer Ads, it drops its files in C:\Program Files (x86)\Hahomedia\Hahomedia (64-bit Windows architecture) or C:\Program Files\Hahomedia\Hahomedia (32-bit Windows architecture). Our researchers say that it is supposed to have two executable files named InjectorServiceProject.exe and Injector.exe, but the names can vary. Once in place, these executables will run on Windows startup and start displaying annoying advertisements such as Newupdatesneeded.com/lp/87/4/free/java. Most of its ads should come as coupons, and pop-ups, but this adware might also render them as in-texts and banners. These ads may not look like much, but they can put a damper on your browser’s performance. It may start to load pages slower than before. Apart from that, the sheer annoyance of the ads is bound to obstruct your browsing.

However, we also want to stress that the advertisements that this program presents come from unverified sources, and we fear that they may feature links to malicious software downloads or fake online shopping websites that steal your money. In addition, we have found that this application can collect information about you and use it to advance the agenda of its developers. Well, you already know that they want to make as much money as possible and have no regard for your online personal security. The information Bugfixxer Ads is set to collect includes IP addresses, browsing and search history, geographical location, hardware information, software information and so on. In short, it will collect every bit of information it can, so that the developers could customize the ads based on your browsing preferences. This tactic is nothing new, and it is used by all the main online advertisers. The main difference here is that HahoMedia is an unreliable advertiser, and we recommend that you uninstall Bugfixxer Ads as soon as the opportunity arises.

Due to the fact that this program’s developers did not include an uninstaller in this program, you have to delete its files manually from C:\Program Files (x86)\Hahomedia\Hahomedia or C:\Program Files\Hahomedia\Hahomedia. We hope that this article has shed light on this deceptive program. We have presented all of the information that is currently available to us, so if you want to remove Bugfixxer Ads we recommend that you do this using our instructions.
