MicroCover Removal Guide

Do you know what MicroCover is?

While looking for an application to improve your online experience, you might come across a program called MicroCover. All that you need to know about it is that it is an invasive adware program that cannot be trusted under any circumstances. Unfortunately, our reports show that quite a few users have their PC infected with it already. If this is the case, do not hesitate and make sure to remove it since this ad-supported program holds no beneficial values whatsoever. Often users are lured into installing this invasive program as developers of it often use various marketing gimmicks. Do not get fooled by various statements that might be saying that this program is your best bet to have the best online experience possible since in reality it will only ruin your online experience. Our malware experts have crafted a detailed removal guide that can be used to delete MicroCover in a quick and easy manner.

During the research, we have found out that MicroCover is based on a JustPlugIt engine. It is worth noting that quite a few other adware programs are based on this suspicious engine such as MercuryGrips, GraphiteCommand, ExtraLargeApp, and quite a few others. Therefore, it is quite natural that the adware program in question functions a lot like the adware programs we listed. Once this adware program enters your operating system, it will almost instantly implement a suspicious third-party browser extension to browsers such a Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer. These extensions are the main reason your web browser will get filled up with numerous third-party ads and annoying pop-ups, which will ruin your online experience. In fact, you will not be able to surf the web the way you are used to. This is why it is crucial to remove the malicious extensions along with a whole application as otherwise the invasive activity will continue to bother you.

Even though annoyance and frustration caused by MicroCover are the most prominent features, our researchers have found out that there is something much more alarming about this adware. It has been noticed that some ads and pop-ups provided by it could be implemented with redirect links. This is an extremely dangerous situation because it could have devastating outcomes. For example, by clicking on a simple, seemingly harmless ad you could be taken to a fake online store, which has been crafted by cyber crooks for one reason only – to steal your credit card. In other situations, you could land on a website that runs an arbitrary code execution exploit meaning that just entering such a site is more than enough to get your PC infected with some unknown malware. To keep your sensitive data safe and your PC secure, you must conduct a complete removal of MicroCover right now.

The removal of MicroCover should be your utmost importance as it could turn out to be a major virtual threat. Do not skip any steps since a single mistake could mean that the adware program has not been removed entirely. This is dangerous as in some cases MicroCover could use just a few leftover files or registry entries to restore itself without any notification. This is why we recommend scanning your PC as soon as manual removal is over with a professional antimalware tool to be sure that nothing associated with MicroCover is active on your PC.
