Air Globe belongs to the well-known SuperWeb family.

Similarly to other adware applications, Air Globe is so skillful that it can make you download it without even realizing it. Most often, the adware enters your PC bundled with other freeware and keeps its presence in secret until the multiple adverts start showing up on your monitor. actually, this is not unusual at all because freeware usually travels bundled with malware as this is the easiest access point to the system.

As soon as Air Globe infiltrates your virtual machine, it is added as a browser extension for Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. The application may also work on Google Chrome, however, the malware experts claim that the newer versions of Google Chrome block Air Globe.
Apart from flooding your monitor with numerous commercial advertisements, Air Globe is capable of monitoring your virtual activities and recording your browsing history. Once the adware collects enough data about you, it starts providing you with customized advertisements which are related to your virtual interests and preferences in order to make you open them.
Every click you make brings profit to the third parties hiding behind the program and continues its existence. If you want to avoid this from happening and protect your system security, you should terminate the commercial adverts by removing Air Globe from your computer.
