Do you know what NiceAndFun is?
It does not take long for computer users to realize that there is nothing nice or fun about NiceAndFun. This advertisement-supported program was created using the Justplugit engine, and adware created using it has the worst reputation. In fact, if you let in this program and do not remove it right away, your browsers will be flooded with suspicious, potentially unreliable advertisements. Needless to say, our research team agrees that you should delete NiceAndFun from your operating system. If you are not sure how to remove this suspicious adware, or you need more information before you can start the operation, you should continue reading.
Just like other infamous Justplugit-related programs, NiceAndFun is distributed by third-party installers, including Installrex and Vittalia. Neither this program nor most of its clones (e.g., CouponGiant and BranderApp) have official websites, which is why their creators had to find other distribution methods. Unfortunately, third-party distributors cannot be trusted because they usually package several different programs together. In the worst case scenario, you will have to remove NiceAndFun along with other unreliable programs. If you have no idea if malware was installed along with this adware – and it might be difficult to recognize this – you can employ a malware scanner to inspect your operating system.
Our research has shown that NiceAndFun usually travels bundled with other ad-supported programs, potentially unwanted programs, and browser hijackers (e.g., Websearch.hotfindings.info). Although this software could be very dangerous, you cannot underestimate NiceAndFun. This ad-supported program communicates with unfamiliar adware servers that could host malicious files, which is why we do not advise trusting the pop-ups and banner ads injected by it. For all you know, this adware could promote ads created by cyber criminals! You also need to remove this adware because it can install extremely intrusive tracking cookies. If you do not delete them, information about your virtual activity could be leaked to unfamiliar and potentially unreliable parties.
We have tested NiceAndFun in our internal lab and found that its removal consists of several different steps. First of all, you need to uninstall this program, then, if this adware was installed on the Firefox or Chrome browser, you also need to remove browser extensions. Finally, you have to eliminate any remaining components, such as tracking cookies. If you cannot delete unwanted software from your operating system yourself, rely on reliable antimalware software. Note that if you do not ensure full-time Windows protection, malware could slither in again.
