What is DictAddon?

DictAddon is a set of components designed for spying on a user web browsing and displaying ads related to search queries and visited websites. This adware comes from thedictaddon.com or is deceptively installed with free programs. DictAddon is powered by similarly named programs and plugins installed into web browsers. So, it is not that difficult to remove if it not comes bundled with other adware and spyware programs. While some plugins are called browser helper objects, they might are only designed to display ads thus compromising user’s privacy and wasting web traffic. Free program developers and distributors often monetize development by bundling DictAddon and other adware with distributed programs. They use all possible and legitimate means to hide presence of unpopular software from user’s view. That is why many people fail to notice bundled adware while installing free programs and other media. Unfortunately, removing DictAddon and other adware programs requires many different operations that an average computer users are not aware of.

Protection against deceptively installed adware:

If you want to avoid installing adware products like DictAddon, then you need to remember that adware programs are delivered with other free programs, set for automatic installation, and installed unless you disable such optional items. Always pay attention to marked check boxes placed in setup wizard screens and disable additional software unless you know it. Always use “custom” installation instead of “typical”, or “normal” since these options might hide adware programs. Read EULA that might inform you about adware programs and terms of their use.

Protect your computer with programs like SpyHunter that can trace installation process, warn you on threats, and remove malware on your demand.
