What is QWebber
Similar as DiscountMagnet and TurboDiagnosis, QWebber is an unwanted application which has been actively spreading on the Internet. After entering the computer system, it interrupts computer users’ browsing experience and installs suspicious plug-ins by unfair means. Therefore, it is recognized as an unwanted threat which should not be left in the computer.
QWebber displays several types of ads on your computer screen at random: (1) sponsored links; (2) traditional small ad box, banner ads and interstitial ads; (3) text ads, video ads and picture ads. Sponsored links can also appear in your keyword search on Google, Yahoo!, Bing and other search engines. In other words, when QWebber is hijacking the web browser, you have no choice but to view those annoying pop-ups one by one.
Most of them will not allow you to close them until they play to the end. More unwanted adware programs will not be installed in your computer if you avoid those pop-up messages. However, once you click on any one of them accidentally, you are redirected to some unsafe web sites which can be filled with fake programs, viruses and other malicious files. Why should we leave QWebber in the computer in the case that it does nothing good to the computer system and provides us with nothing useful? So let’s take actions now to get rid of QWebber adware.
