Do you know what TestSpeeder is?
TestSpeeder is a potentially unwanted application. Our research team says it is an adware program because it displays a lot of annoying advertisements each time you access the Internet. The main purpose of TestSpeeder should be to test your Internet speed, and help you track your data use. Nevertheless, the application comes with additional features that might not be as useful. This program can also display a lot of commercial advertisements that disrupt your internet browsing process. You have to avoid this by removing TestSpeeder from the PC right now.
If you visit speed-check.me (that is the official homepage for TestSpeeder), you will be greeted with a promotional line that says “why pay extra for fast internet and not get exactly what you’ve paid for?” It says that you can check your internet service details, save them and then present them to your internet service provider as a proof, in case you are not satisfied with the service. What is more, you can also download TestSpeeder at the website, so at first sight it may seem that there is nothing wrong with this application.
However, after some thorough digging we were able to find out that TestSpeeder is just another version of such unwanted applications as Bettermarkit, BestMarkit and Re-Markable. Just like its predecessors, TestSpeeder may also arrive bundled with potentially unwanted applications, especially if you often download freeware from third-party websites. If that is the case, then you have no one else, but yourself to blame for having TestSpeeder on your PC.
You will definitely notice that TestSpeeder is running on the system because this application adds an icon to the bottom right of your taskbar. Clicking this icon automatically initiates the test for Internet speed, but it is hard to tell whether TestSpeeder provides you with reliable results.
What is more, the most explicit feature of this application is its advertising skills. With TestSpeeder on board, you will constantly be exposed to various commercial advertisements that will pop up on your browser. What is more, the application will also open new browser windows and tabs, redirecting you to unreliable online marketing surveys, or fake Java update pages. Needless to say, if you need to update any application, you have to download the update from its official website – never trust third-party updaters because they could install more adware on your PC!
When you uninstall TestSpeeder via Control panel, you should run a full system scan with SpyHunter free scanner. There are two reasons as to why you have to do it. First, there might be some leftover files remaining on your PC, and second – there could be more adware programs installed on the system. You have to make sure that you delete them all at once.
