Aerojet Removal Guide

Do you know what Aerojet is?

If you are annoyed by third-party advertisements and webpages showing up on new tabs while you are surfing the web in your Google Chrome browser, there is a good chance that Aerojet has found a way to your system. This annoying software does nothing more than it displays third-party content in your browser. Our researchers say that it is a potentially unwanted program, or PUP, even though it does show browser hijacker and adware-like traits. Do not be misled by this category because this PUP can still cause security-related issues for your system. Unfortunately, this risky program enters your computer in questionable ways, i.e., in the company of malicious software installers. This can make your system quite vulnerable. This is why we suggest that you remove Aerojet as soon as possible because its presence can cost you before long.Aerojet Removal GuideAerojet screenshot

There is an official page ( that shares some information about this worthless program; however, it seems like it does not even function properly. We have found that you cannot load some pages that could provide you valuable information, but the main suspicion about this PUP is raised when you realize that you can neither download nor install this tool from this site. Obviously, there has to be some other ways for this PUP to show up on your computer. The problem is that this program can infiltrate your operating system in a malicious freeware bundle that can contain several threats, such as adware programs, browser hijackers, fake alerts, and other PUPs. Such a company of “baddies” can cause enough problems and exposures to malicious web content that this could put your virtual security at serious risk.

Therefore, it is important for you to know how such a package may land on your machine. The most likely way for you to let a malicious bundle onto your system is to click on an unreliable third-party advertisement or link. This can happen in two main ways. First, when your system is infected with adware applications or browser hijackers, you can be introduced to such ads and links every time you go online. Second, when you end up on suspicious websites that host several unsafe third-party ads. Although you may think that you would never click on unsafe content, you should know that when you land on unfamiliar gaming, dating, torrent, or shareware sites, it is quite possible that you click on something that is not what it seems. In other words, you may be misled to believe that you are clicking on a download button, but, instead of downloading your targeted file or free program, you will download a package of malicious threats. All in all, you can see clearly that there is a good chance that your computer could have been infected recently with a bunch of malware programs and PUPs. For this reason, we suggest that you delete Aerojet from your computer.

As a matter of fact, even Google Chrome says that “This extension is not listed in the Chrome Web Store and may have been added without your knowledge” when you check your extension list. This does not sound good at all. The only benefit of this PUP is for its creators since this useless program promotes third parties through commercials (pop-ups and banners) and opening websites on new tabs. This extension claims that its advertisements can be trusted, but, unfortunately, you can never really know this. One single click is enough on the wrong content to start up an avalanche of events that could lead to your being scammed out of your money. If you click on an unsafe ad, you could be redirected to malicious websites that could drop further infections onto your system or trick you into revealing your personal or banking details. If you do not want to experience such scenarios, we believe that you should delete Aerojet from your system.

This annoying PUP does not even have a proper uninstaller. Unfortunately, you cannot simply get rid of this threat by running its uninstaller via Control Panel; although, this is the first step you should take anyway. Then, you need to take care of the leftovers. If you want to make sure that no mess remains after this infection, we suggest that you use our guide below. It is possible that you are not the manual type of computer user and would prefer an automated tool instead. Therefore, we also recommend that you install a trustworthy anti-malware program, such as SpyHunter that will automatically take care of all the threats and attacks that may endanger your virtual security.
