Do you know what Diet Interactive is?
If you need advice on losing weight or proper diet, we do not recommend that you install Diet Interactive. Unfortunately, it is quite possible that you did not even want to install this useless application and yet it is there on your computer. After careful testing in our internal lab, our researchers categorized this infection as an ad-supported program, i.e., adware. You need to know that this program may cause system security issues by showing you potentially unsafe third-party ads, which can serve as gateways to malicious websites. Another bit of bad news is that this adware can come on board with other infections as well. So you may be facing a more complex security issue than you may think at first sight. That is why we believe that you should not just delete Diet Interactive alone if you want to protect your PC, but you also need to tackle all other possible threats as well. Obviously, you would not be in this shoe now if you had proper protection installed. Please read our full report to learn why this infection means a risk source and how you could safeguard your system from such invaders.
This adware is actually quite suspicious right from the start. Even its own official website may get blocked by anti-malware software, which does not sound too promising. The reason behind this is simple: The installer of this program, DietInteractive_Setup.exe, promoted on this webpage contains common malware infections, such as MyPcBackup and Yoursearching.com. So, practically, if you run this official installer, you let a few nasty surprises on board as well. These programs are mainly adware apps, browser hijackers, and potentially unwanted applications, too. All of these infections may be able to introduce you to unsafe third-party content. So whenever you go surfing the web, your experience may be disrupted by constant advertising, which is not only annoying but it could also present you with exposure to cyber criminals. We would not hesitate to remove Diet Interactive only knowing this; however, there is more to this adware unfortunately.Diet Interactive screenshot

It is possible that a browser hijacker has found its way to your computer previously and you run a web search through a questionable search engine promoted by this hijacker.

But you might also install this worthless application through a free software bundle. No matter how this adware actually sneaked onto your computer, you should see that you need to be very careful with search engines and clicking on content, such as pop-up ads and banner ads as well. If you want to make your PC a safe virtual realm, you should remove Diet Interactive and all other threats right away.
This software uses its own GUI (Graphical User Interface) to load a promoted website, webmd.com, which is actually a medical site. However, this application does not seem to function as a browser so you cannot do too much. After installation, this adware launches your default browser and loads interest6.valuedinformation.com/numbers/?t=5&c1=UAOCD%3A%3A page. Since this program may promote other affiliated sites as well, you need to be careful with clicking on any content related to this adware. One single click is enough to be redirected to a malicious website if you happen to click on the wrong ad. Since apart from potentially harming your computer this application has no apparent function, we recommend that you remove it immediately.
