Pop Bubbles

What is Pop Bubbles?

Pop Bubbles is classified as an advertising-supported program, and it can take over your Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox web browsers. This adware was built using the Injekt engine, just like hundreds of other unreliable ad-supported programs that we have analyzed and discussed in previous reports. Search Window, Splendor Search, Discovery App, and Blazer Deals are few of the many clones that this adware has, and every single one of them is unreliable and potentially dangerous. The good news is that it is unlikely you will need to handle more than one of these threats at the same time. On the other hand, it is almost guaranteed that you will find other threats running along with this ad-supported program because it is usually distributed via third-party installers. Read this report to learn how to delete Pop Bubbles, as well as to learn more about adware and protection against it.testtesttest

How does Pop Bubbles act?

Most users will be unfamiliar with popbubblessoftware.com; however, this is the website representing Pop Bubbles. Just like all other websites representing Injekt adware, this one does not have an installer, but it provides the very important Privacy Policy and End User License statements. Surely, if you are not familiar with the website, it is unlikely that you have analyzed these documents. The most important disclaimer reveals that third parties might use this adware to introduce you to reward programs, contests, prize giveaways, surveys, subscriptions, trial offers, and similar content. The problem here is that the creator of this adware does not take any responsibility for the content shown to you, and there are no guarantees that this content is trustworthy. In fact, it is very likely that the advertising service offered by Pop Bubbles will open many security backdoors that could help cyber criminals reach out to you. Cyber crooks are always looking for new ways to infect operating systems, but corrupted advertisements are still widely used. Computer users are so used to seeing ads that they often do not even think twice before they click on a malicious ad created to introduce malicious installers, data-recording surveys, and other kinds of scams. The worst part is that these ads might be based on your browsing history, which means that they might be specifically targeted at you.

If you go to %ProgramFiles%\Pop Bubbles\, you will find 7za.exe, Uninstaller.exe, 02b98cbc-7c59-4e41-a2b9-feea86a267fe.dll, and firefox@www.popbubblessoftware.com.xpi files. These are the files of the ad-supported program that you need to delete. If you do not do this, as well as delete all registry keys, you will continue encountering ads, and information about you will continue being collected. Keep in mind that if this is the removal option you choose, you must eliminate registry keys created by this adware as well. Needless to say, this option is not the most ideal if other threats are active along with this adware. Other ad-supported programs, browser hijackers, potentially unwanted programs, and even clandestine Trojans could all corrupt your operating system along with this suspicious program. If malicious threats were infiltrated silently, without your notice, you might need a malware scanner to detect them, and you can acquire a reliable scanner by clicking the Download buttons above or below.
