What is PodoWeb?

PodoWeb is an adware developed by Supper Web LLC for displaying ads and making money out of users clicks. Adware tracks your web browsing history and causes privacy issues such as spam in your email box. It also wastes your web traffic. PodoWeb consists of the windows program that manages all the adware processes and web browser extensions installed into Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer. This makes removing PodoWeb more complicated than removing other windows programs. It is better to be careful while installing free programs since inspecting setup wizards for bundled programs takes less of your time than PodoWeb removal.

Protection against deceptively installed adware:

If you want to avoid installing adware products like PodoWeb, 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. 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.
