I wrote this article to help you remove BetterWorld Virus. This BetterWorld Virus removal guide works for Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer.

BetterWorld is a program, that is promoted as a useful tool for displaying coupons and competitive prices for each site that you visit. IT specialists categorize this parasite as adware. Don’t fall into the false presentation of this shady software.

In reality, this program is actually very intrusive and will generate numerous advertisements that will swarm your browser whether you want it or not. It is possible for such ads to have some kind of text under them, like “Ads by BetterWorld”, “Powered by BetterWorld”, “Brought to you by BetterWorld” etc. Often such adverts aim to make you download other questionable software like toolbars, extensions, and other products that are advertised as useful. Having this adware on your computer may cause your browser to freeze and crash, making any web activity impossible.

The most common means of adware distribution is by free bundled software and fake update requests. Developers often repackage programs and applications and bundle them along with malware that is not properly disclosed. This is the reason why users unknowingly install such malicious software on their computer. Such infection can be easily avoided if they get rid of the habit to opt for a Quick installation.

What we advise our readers to do instead, is to choose Custom or Advanced mode in the Setup Wizard, so as to have full control over the installation process. What’s more, this way you can view the full content of the already mentioned software bundles, and can easily deselect any program or application that you find suspicious or never intended to download in the first place.

Adware might not seem very dangerous, but such constant generation of adverts will eventually overload your browser. Such burden will be the reason behind a slow internet connection. You will also experience difficulties not only in opening your browser, but in performing any web tasks like opening a simple website. Every day, your web browser will feel sluggish and even crash. It will get to a point where you will not be able to do any work, because your system will be too busy trying to load all the dubious ads and pop-ups. This is why it is very important to act quickly.

As soon as you notice the presence of this BetterWorld program, we advise you to proceed with its immediate removal. We can help you to successfully remove this adware from your computer. You will find detailed instructions at the end of this article.
