Yayzap Removal Guide

Do you know what Yayzap is?

Yayzap is an application users have to install on their computers if they wish to play games available at yayzap.com. Users immediately find the following text once they enter the aforementioned website: “YayZap offers free games in exchange for an agreement to install our software and receive advertising.” Yes, the software yayzap.com requires installing on the system is a typical advertising-supported application, which means that you agree to see tons of commercial advertisements on your screen by installing it on your system. Of course, in some cases, users find this software on their computers but are sure that they have not installed it willingly. We believe them because we know that this adware might sneak onto computers without permission as well. To be frank, it is advisable to remove an ad-supported program from the system no matter it has sneaked onto the computer without permission or you have downloaded it yourself because adware programs are not only quite irritating, but might also put systems in danger, so they should not be kept installed.

Research has shown that Yayzap is the most popular among users living in the USA at the time of writing. We understand those people who wish to play online games free of charge; however, we also want users to know that it is not worth keeping an untrustworthy program that might cause harm to the system just because it grants the access to games. There are two reasons we suggest that you get rid of an ad-supported program. First of all, it is clear that this program might start showing pop-up, pop-under, transitional, and in-text ads as well as banners. It seems that only Internet Explorer users will see them because this program is compatible with this browser only. If your default browser is Internet Explorer and you have started seeing ads with the Yayzap label, you can be sure that adware is installed on your computer. These ads might not seem dangerous at all at first glance; however, you still risk infecting your PC with malicious software by clicking on them because they might have bad links inside them and, as a consequence, you might be taken to an untrustworthy website.Yayzap Removal GuideYayzap screenshot

Our team of specialists says that Yayzap cannot be trusted fully because it is interested in what users do on the web, and it is unclear why it needs this information too. We have checked the Privacy Policy for you and found that it is going to gather two types of information. First of all, it is said that it might collect “information that can identify you as a specific individual,” e.g. name and email address. Secondly, it will automatically collect non-personally identifiable information. It is the most interested in such details as the operating system, type of browser, geographic location, and pages viewed. This information might tell much about your interests as well, so if you decide that you do not want to reveal this information to anyone, you need to remove Yayzap from your PC as soon as possible. Once you do that, you will no longer see its folder in %LOCALAPPDATA% and %UserProfile%\Local Settings\Application Data.

It will not be easy, but you should take all the necessary measures to protect your computer from adware and other much more serious infections that might want to enter your computer in the future. As our research has shown, ad-supported programs often travel in software bundles and thus enter computers rather secretly. Also, they might be installed once you click on some kind of commercial advertisement. You need to be very careful with new applications, and it would be clever not click on all the ads you come across on the web. Finally, we suggest installing security software on the computer as well.

Yayzap has an uninstaller so can be removed easily. Of course, you might still find this rather complicated if you have never done that before, so we suggest using our manual removal instructions in such a case. In case you do not like the manual method or you still cannot remove the adware from your PC for any reason using our removal guide, you should definitely use an automatic malware remover, e.g. SpyHunter.
