Do you know what Netspeed Ads is?
Netspeed Ads is an unreliable adware application that seems like an authentic and useful tool to download at first sight. It claims to measure your internet speed under 30 seconds, if you simply click the application’s icon on the Windows Tray. However, our security experts strongly recommend that you remove Netspeed Ads from your PC urgently. This is a useless app that will only flood you with all kinds of advertisements that might be potentially unreliable or even malicious. Even if it was a trustworthy application, the third-party ads are never fully safe to click on. These adware applications can be exploited by cyber criminals who will keep trying to lure you to click their ads which will most probably have a corrupt link. Once you click such an ad, you might be redirected to a malicious website or some malware could be downloaded in the background without you even noticing it. Therefore, we recommend that you refrain from interacting with pop-ups, banners or coupons, and delete Netspeed Ads ASAP.Netspeed Ads screenshot

Another red flag regarding this adware is that you cannot actually download the program from its own official website, netspeedapp.com. This again is a very good reason why you should delete Netspeed Ads from your computer right now, because this only means that it will have to use some tricks to slither onto your PC. So, if you did not download it from the website, it is most likely that it entered your system via a third-party installer such as Outbrowse. This installer is notorious for delivering suspicious ads bundled with other malware infections. This means, if you have Netspeed Ads on your system, it may not be enough to delete the app itself, but you might also need to take care of all other related programs.
Every time you install a software bundle you need to be extra careful. You do have a chance most of the time not to install unwanted programs if you go for the Advanced or Custom option in the installation wizard. If you miss this step because you are too eager to try out your new software, you might end up with more infections and threats that you will have to remove in the end.
The files Netspeed Ads installs on your system are signed by a totally unknown company called Appzoozoo. Fortunately for you, it is rather easy to delete this application from your PC manually. Our researchers at spyware-techie.com say that Netspeed Ads is very similar to EazyZoom and BobyZoom which can be removed via Control Panel. But you also need to take care of the extension it adds to Firefox. We have prepared a removal guide for you below, so if you follow the instructions you should have no problem getting rid of Netspeed Ads. However, we recommend that you run a full system scan afterwards using a reliable antispyware tool, such as SpyHunter, to make sure that there are no other threats lurking on your system. If you are having problems with the removal, please leave us a comment further below.
