Do you know what LockerTerminal is?
LockerTerminal is an adware application that displays pop-up ads when you browse the web. It can significantly slow down your browser and impede your browsing process. On top of that, LockerTerminal might also expose you to unfamiliar and corrupted third-party websites. Albeit adware programs are not immediate computer security threats, we still cannot ignore them because they COULD be used as information-gathering and malware distribution tools by cyber criminals. You cannot allow this to happen, so the sooner you delete LockerTerminal, the better. Scroll down to the bottom of this description for the manual removal instructions.
Technically, LockerTerminal functions as a browser extension, compatible with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer. Some of the newest versions of the Google Chrome browser might block LockerTerminal citing security reasons, and this should be enough to convince you that the application has to be terminated right now. What’s more, this adware program may not be the only thing that affects your browser. Our research shows that LockerTerminal usually comes bundled with browser hijackers from the Websearch group (such as websearch.hotfindings.info), so it is easy to see that it never rains but it pours when it comes to computer security threats.
You must have installed LockerTerminal accidentally when you downloaded something with the InstallRex installer from a file-sharing website. Usually, programs from the Multiplug family, including Dealsy, AllDaySale, HappySale, get distributed in freeware bundles via the InstallRex installer, but it might also come in the Amonetize and Vittalia installers, based on your location and the websites you access. Whatever it might have been, the bottom line is that this program did not slither into your computer surreptitiously. At the same time, you have to understand that LockerTerminal definitely is not the only uninvited program currently running on your system.
What will happen in the long run if you do not remove LockerTerminal? Many things can happen. For starters, we do agree that this application does not try to infect you with malware or steal your personal information. But you can never know what the intentions of the third parties are. This adware application is more of a vehicle that can be used to promote third-party content -- not to mention that LockerTerminal does not even bother checking whether the outgoing links in its ads lead you to safe web pages.
You need to take your computer’s security into your own hands and get rid of this potential security threat right now. When it comes to dealing with unwanted programs, the course of actions is clear: If you did not want to have the program in the first place, it is only logical to get rid of it.
When you delete LockerTerminal from your PC, do not forget to run a full system scan with the SpyHunter free scanner to determine what other programs must be terminated as well. Also, protect your system against similar intruders in the future by investing in a licensed security tool of your choice. Last but not least, employ safe web browsing habits because potential security threats are always there, waiting for you to click this flashing link on an unfamiliar website.
