DraftFactor Removal Guide

Do you know what DraftFactor is?

DraftFactor is not identical to AhoyTraveler or SecretCreditCard; however, all of these apps belong to the same family of advertising-supported software that is capable of injecting third-party ads. There is no doubt that these applications were created using the same framework, and there is a possibility that they are controlled by the same party. Whether or not that is the case, we advise deleting all of these ad-supported programs because they are not beneficial one bit. What we have found after researching every single program within this family is that they present the exact same information and links that you can find by visiting certain websites, which means that this adware is incapable of producing original content. Well, that is not the only reason to remove DraftFactor from your operating system. If you are interested in our findings, and you need help erasing this adware, please continue reading.

The suspicious DraftFactor is targeted at those who are interested in sports. This program supposedly can help you follow the news of your favorite teams. If you install it onto your PC, you will be provided with a Desktop shortcut called “Draft Factor,” and, if you launch it, you might be shown the contents of some sport-related website; however, most users will be exposed to random offers. According to our research, you might be exposed to the offers served by beyond.com, offers.bluehilltravel.com, and redtag-specials.com. Obviously, this was not what you expected when installing this program, was it? Besides showing third-party ads via its interface, it also can use Internet Explorer to display ads. You can expect IE to pop up showing ads as soon as you install the suspicious adware and every time you interact with its interface. Even if the offers and deals shown to you are appealing, you need to keep in mind that virtual scams might hide behind every single one of them.DraftFactor Removal GuideDraftFactor screenshot

The official installer (InstallCore downloader) at draftfactor.com promotes other programs, such as Opera Browser, SuperWeb adware, and MyPCBackup.

Of course, if you download this adware using a third-party installer, it is even more difficult to predict what kind of software could come bundled. Obviously, it would be annoying to have to deal with additional ad-supported programs, but much more malicious threats could slither in as well.
