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

Being stuck with the Speedomizer app on your machine is bad. This program is categorized as a browser hijacker. It is neither helpful nor safe. It is malicious and you must do your best to remove it from your machine. As soon as you spot Speedomizer, start looking for a way out. Do not leave this pest to spend more time on your system. The longer it stays, the more problems and headaches it causes you.

That’s what hijackers do. They annoy the users, turning their browsing into a nightmare while serving their developers` malicious purposes. Do not allow that. Do not be a host of Speedomizer as it would be a horrible tenant. Do not expect it to enhance your online experience in any way. It may promise to do so, but it won`t. All it will do is use you and your machine to accomplish its agenda. However, this will not end well for you, the user.

If you want to save yourself tons of issues, act fast. Find where the parasite is lurking and delete it on the spot. If you don’t, things will get out of control sooner rather than later. The hijacker may even cause you some irrevocable damage. Do yourself a huge favor and delete it before it has the chance to succeed.

Speedomizer is developed to bring revenue to its owners. It does so by hijacking your browsers and using them. It uses you too. This pest ruins your browsing experience. Every time you decide to go online, the pest redirects you. While trying to load your favorite page, for instance, somehow you end visiting another very shady site without even knowing how you got there.

Speedomizer led you to it. It redirects you to dodgy sites, thus boosting web traffic. For every site you get redirected to, the crooks get paid. The hackers also get even better paid for every malicious ad you click on. And believe us, you will see plenty of malicious ads.

In fact, your whole screen will be covered in commercials which are sponsored and used by crooks to earn pay-per-click revenue. Even if there are some safe adverts as well, you cannot tell them apart from the corrupted ones. You cannot avoid them either. Speedomizer tricks you into clicking. It floods you with commercials 24/7. They cover every page you load. Sometimes they even appear right under the cursor of your mouse. The thing is, sooner or later you will click and aside from sponsoring crooks this way, you may also download more parasites on board.

Nothing you see because of the hijacker is reliable. It is only a matter of time before you fill your PC with infections. Unless you want that to happen, remove Speedomizer now. To do so manually, use our removal guide below.

How did Speedomizer manage to slither in your system? It used tricks, of course. One of the most popular and effective methods is called freeware bundling. That’s why it is crucial to be extra careful when installing programs. You never know what else may be attached to them as a bonus. The only way to find out if to opt for the Custom settings in the Setup Wizard instead of the Standard ones. This way, you will be presented with a list of all additionally attached apps which are about to enter your machine.

Under the Standard installation, all extras get installed automatically but now you are able to manually deselect each and every one of them, and then still install the program you originally planned to set up. Do you what a little extra time and attention can prevent? Yes? You will do well to remember it.
