Do you know what RightSurf is?
RightSurf is an adware application that is going to display you various advertisements once installed on the system. Even though this program states that it has been published for one purpose only, which is to improve your browsing experience considerably, you should not believe it because it is going to provide you with different kinds of advertisements only. As these commercials might appear on all the browsers, it is very probable that you will see them straight after the installation of RightSurf. The publishers of this adware program claim that various ads are going to be shown for only one important reason – to keep the application free. If you want to stop all these promotions, you should remove RightSurf from your system immediately.
The download on its official website rightsurf.info is not working which means that it is very probable that it is distributed bundled with freeware, for instance, various other potentially unwanted programs. If you complete the installation of every new program by just clicking Next all the time and without paying enough attention to the wizard itself, it is not surprising that you install a variety of unfamiliar applications. Custom installation would help you to reduce the amount of different software on your PC; thus, you should always select it during the installation of a new program. It is recommended to erase all those unfamiliar programs as they might cause harm to the security of the system as well as slow down your computer.
