Do you know what WebSpeed is?

WebSpeed cannot be downloaded from the official website, because the download link does not work. Research has revealed that WebSpeed is mostly distributed via software bundles and is usually bundled within installers such as InstallCore and Vittalia. Generally, such installers are up for download on suspicious third-party hosting websites. Your best bet to avoid getting your operating system infected in this manner is to avoid such websites at all times. It is important to keep a clean and secure system, so you are advised to implement a reliable antimalware tool, as it will provide real-time security.
Unlike other adware applications, WebSpeed does not rely on browser extensions to display third-party adverts while you are browsing the web. In fact, once WebSpeed successfully enters your operating system, it will start a Windows system process known as webspeed.exe, which is responsible for all those third-party adverts displayed while you are browsing the web. The system process can be killed by using the Task Manager, but the annoying activity promoted by will not stop entirely. In order to restore the normal functionality of your browser, you will need to remove every bit of WebSpeed.
The removal of WebSpeed is crucial, as it has been found that this invasive adware program could be used by other Internet-based infections as a gateway into your operating system. A single file or registry entry could start a download without requiring authorization from you. Thus, you could end up with some unknown malware on your system. Your system is at great risk as long as WebSpeed is running on your PC. Remove WebSpeed using the instructions below.
