The problem: To completely uninstall Websteroids is not always that simple, the default uninstaller that came with the program always fails to remove all the components of Websteroids. For example, the registry entries that created during the program installation are always left inside the computer even you perform the regular removal, also, leftovers may include installation folder, temporary files, cache files, etc. To manually find out and remove these leftovers is not only tedious but also a risk-involved task since you need to reach the registry editor and sort out the unwanted entries or keys of the target program, and then remove them one by one, sounds easy, isn’t it? Well, the fact is, Windows registry is a place that you don’t want to mess up, an straightforward example, if you mistakenly delete a wrong key/entry, some of the program in your computer may stop working, it may even result in system malfunction.
By the way, ironically, the home web page for this dubious software at claims that it can be used to “destroy ads”, with an exclamation mark next to the phrase. Well, apparently, instead of doing that, it appears to stick to an absolutely contrary strategy, flooding the browsers with yet more ads. The way the authors of this app benefit from distributing their product on a large scale is they get paid for showing the advertisements to users. Also, this adware is known to collect data on its victims’ web surfing preferences, thus tracking user activity – which is obviously not a good thing in terms of one’s privacy.
