The official website for High Stairs is located at highstairs.com. It greets you with a catchy tagline: “CLIMB TO THE TOP OF THE ‘NET WITH HIGH STAIRS!” Seemingly, the program should enhance your browsing experience in some magical way, but the official homepage does not have a download button, and even if you click the More Info button, you are redirected to an inquiry page where you are asked to leave a message, in hopes that the people behind High Stairs would contact you. It does not take to be a genius to understand that the entire thing is just a scam, and the page is a cheap shell created to make users think that High Stairs is a reliable tool.
Fortunately, we know better than that, and we can surely say that High Stairs gets distributed in software bundles. Actually, it is the most common method of distribution applied by adware programs, and High Stairs just does whatever Blaze Deals, Gravity Space, Assist Point, and many other similar apps did before it. Our research also shows that this program is similar to the SuperWeb adware, although they are not identical. Unlike the SuperWeb family adware, High Stairs is based on the Injekt engine.
There is nothing too authentic about this application because it is yet another adware program that will spam you with ads. High Stairs will display pop-ups, shopping offers, and other types of commercial advertisements, most of which will be embedded with content related to your most recent browsing history. This happens because the program monitors your online activity in order to customize the ads based on your likes and preferences. Supposedly, this should increase the possibility of you clicking the ads, but you should know better than that.
Clicking the High Stairs ads could inadvertently redirect you to websites that promote and distribute adware, collect private information for online marketing purposes, and even distribute malware. Of course, malware infection is the worst case scenario when it comes to dealing with adware programs, but let us not rule that out.
Keeping everything in mind, it is clear that the best option is to remove High Stairs for good. Uninstall the application via Control Panel and then check your system for other unfamiliar and potentially harmful programs. If you think that you cannot find the uninvited guests on your own, scan your PC with the SpyHunter free scanner. A full system scan with a security tool of your choice will help you locate all the unwanted programs at once, and you will be able to remove them automatically without any further ado.
