Do you know what DigitalChallenge is?
A bunch of new adware applications from the infamous MultiPlug family have been attacking the Web users recently, and DigitalChallenge is one of them. If you have dealt with programs from this family before, you already know how to act in such a situation. You already are on your way to remove this application. However, if you are not familiar with similar adware programs, you may be enticed by promises it makes, whatever they might be. In such a case, it would be important for you to know that DigitalChallenge must be eliminated from your system.
If you decide that this program is worth giving a try, you will soon regret your decision. You will find your Internet browsing experience ruined as DigitalChallenge will annoy you with a never-ending flow of pop-ups and other forms of advertisement. You might face a situation when your entire screen is covered in ads generated by this application, which can act like the Lernaean Hydra: Close one ad and two new ones will appear. Have you lost your patience and decided to click on some advertisement to see where it would take you? That is exactly what creators of the application are expecting from you. This is how they make their programs profitable, as they are paid for every single click on their ads. Moreover, you will never know where you will land after clicking on an ad. You may even find yourself on websites that are created for the purpose of distributing viruses, so refrain from clicking on DigitalChallenge ads as much as you can.
Another reason DigitalChallenge should not be kept is that the program probably came to your computer without permission. We have tested the application in our internal laboratory and have found that it is distributed via the Installrex, Vittalia, and Amonetize installers. Other recent programs from the same MultiPlug family, including StarConcept and LockerTerminal, are also distributed the same way. People usually receive such programs when they decide to install something from unreliable file sharing websites. By acting this way, they open a door not only for programs like DigitalChallenge but also for more dangerous infections that could come bundled in the same package with the program they initially wish to install. For example, this adware program usually comes together with the Websearch.hotfindings.info browser hijacker. So, postpone all the things that are on your daily agenda and start removing the unwanted programs from your computer.
Elimination of DigitalChallenge is a task that even an inexperienced computer user will be able to implement by following our instructions. Keep in mind that as this program is based on the JustPlugIt engine, it is a semi-random name application that is capable of generating capital letters in its name differently each time. But do not worry; you will face no problem in finding this application on your program list. Removing the program via Control Panel will not eliminate it from the Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox extensions, so that would be an additional task for you: You will have to clear your browser extensions. If you find the process too difficult to handle, you can always rely on a legitimate antimalware tool. Scan your system with a program such as SpyHunter, and all the unwanted guests will be detected and eliminated.
