Do you know what Surftastic is?
Just by looking at the official Surftastic download page (surftastic.net) it is clear that this is an unreliable, useless browser extension which we recommend getting removed from the operating system. The download page is almost identical to the ones of Fortunitas, BringStar or Kozaka, and all of these applications have been developed by Super Web LLC. Even though none of these plugins are available from their official download pages, more and more computer users are researching their removal. Do you want to delete Surftastic as well? Then there is no doubt that this application has been installed onto the PC with other unreliable applications. Note that even if they appear harmless, you may need to remove them from the operating system.
The developers of useless and unpopular applications often employ more alluring programs to spread them. For example, you may be looking for a PDF converter. Unfortunately, there are plenty of illegitimate ones which cannot be trusted. If you accidentally trust a suspicious converter, you may install it without paying attention to other unreliable applications which are packaged together. Needless to say, some of these programs could be malicious and could seriously jeopardize your virtual security. If Surftastic has been installed already, soon enough you will find your browsers flooded with all sorts of adverts, if you have not discovered this already. Remember that these advertisements, pop-ups and surveys are most likely to be presented by third parties, which means that they follow unfamiliar privacy policies. We recommend getting Surftastic removed to avoid potential risks.
Do you know how to remove Surftastic from the browsers and the computer at once? You can follow the manual removal instructions which are presented below. Unfortunately, these guides will help you delete the plugin but will not help you get rid of adware and potentially undesirable programs which may have been infiltrated and which may be running without your notice. If you do not know how to find these threats manually, we recommend installing automatic malware detection and removal software to have them deleted from the system.

In non-techie terms:
Surftastic is an unreliable browser plugin which has been discovered to travel bundled with other unreliable applications. We suggest having the application deleted from the system, and you can either install authentic security software to remove it automatically, or you can proceed manually. Installing authentic security software is best in this situation because programs bundled with the plugin may be hard to remove manually.
