Do you know what TheaterMax is?
TheaterMax is an adware application that is based on the Crossrider engine. As such, it should exhibit a number of infection symptoms that are common to almost all Crossrider applications. The point is that you have to remove TheaterMax from your computer before it manages to redirect you to malicious websites. We are not trying to say that this application is a malicious computer infection because you install it onto your system yourself. However, it is more than obvious that adware apps should not be tolerated and, therefore, you have to get rid of TheaterMax.
Adware is a short form of advertising-supported software. It means this category may include almost any program out there that supports commercial advertisements. Like any other program from this category, TheaterMax renders commercial ads in order to generate financial profit for its developers. The primary security concern associated with TheaterMax ads is that there is no way to guarantee the ad content is safe. After all, TheaterMax and other Crossrider apps do not review what kind of outgoing links get embedded in their ads, so when you click a pop-up advertisement, you click on your own risk.
Now you might ask how TheaterMax is not a malicious infection when it is such an annoying application. When it comes to malware, we have to realize that malicious programs enter our systems without permission. TheaterMax, on the other hand, often informs users before entering their computers. The problem is that this application usually gets distributed bundled with freeware, so it means that user installs multiple programs at the same time and, most probably, she breezes through the installation steps without paying attention to additional notices in the setup steps.
As a result, TheaterMax gets installed on your computer, and it starts tracking your web browsing history. All adware programs employ tracking cookies to collect information on what websites visit because they need to generate customized ads. When TheaterMax ads appear on your browser’s window and promote something related to your latest search, it is only natural to feel compelled to click them, but you should never do so.
For all we know, TheaterMax ads could be embedded with outgoing links to unreliable websites that collect your browsing data for marketing purpose and promote adware. This could lead to serious computer security issues, so you simply must remove TheaterMax immediately.
Delete the application via Control Panel and then run a full system scan with the SpyHunter free scanner to check whether there are any additional applications or remaining adware files left. Do not hesitate to invest in a legitimate computer security tool if need be.
