What is DraftFactor?
DraftFactor is a questionable desktop application that promises you sports feeds from your favorite teams; but what you may really be introduced to is potentially harmful third-party content and advertisements. Due to it functionality, our malware researchers at Anti-Spyware-101.com have classified it as an adware application. This program is quite suspicious since even its official installer seems to carry a number of malware infections and potentially unwanted programs as well. But we have found that no matter how this application sneaks onto your computer, it always involves other malware infections somehow. This adware has proved to be an identical clone of Job Knows, Weather Do, and FamilyGurus that have recently hit the web and infiltrated computers around the world. It is important to understand that the displayed third-party ads and promoted pages are not only annoying and distracting, but they may also present virtual security threats when engaged with. Therefore, you should remove DraftFactor right away and identify all other potential threat sources on your computer.
Where does DraftFactor come from?
Our research shows that this adware is mainly distributed through suspicious advertisements. This means that a download offer may pop-up while you are browsing the web and you click on it. This offer may come from an adware application that is hiding on your machine or you may be viewing an unreliable website that generates this ad. According to our researchers, it is also possible to download this adware when you click on manipulated search results after a web search, if your PC is infected with browser hijackers. But this ad-supported application might also be found in free software bundles that are promoted through suspicious websites, such as torrent and shareware pages.
As you can see, you need to be very careful when it comes to clicking on third-party ads and visiting websites. We advise you to never click on ads unless you are totally sure your computer is not infected and the ad you are about to click on comes from a reputable website. Unfortunately, it is enough if one single adware program is on board because that can hijack such advertisements and reroute you to malicious websites. In order to make sure that your computer is all safe, you should delete DraftFactor along with any other suspicious applications.
This program only gets more suspicious when you learn that even its officially available downloader from its promotional page (DraftFactor.com) is infected with threats, including MyPCBackup and SuperWeb adware programs. In fact, we have noticed that this downloader can bundle potentially unwanted programs, browser hijacker as well as adware applications. These usually depend on the region where it is installed, but the infection may also change as time passes. It has to be clear now that when you notice DraftFactor on your PC, it does not mean anything good. In fact, you need to act immediately because the more time this adware and the related infections can spend on your computer, to more they can expose you to harmful content and cyber criminals.
How does DraftFactor work?
This application can be run from your desktop and it opens its own window. This window is very similar to that of all predecessors’. There is a big logo in the top-left corner and below it this useless program loads a webpage that has something to do with offers or advertising, such as offers.bluehilltravel.com/dreamvacation/index.php. However, we have found that you may not be able to use this application as a browser; you cannot load other pages or browse the loaded page properly. But it is possible that this adware opens browser windows and loads advertisements and offers. You should not engage with any content this adware shows you because you may be taken to potentially unreliable websites. So apart from being totally useless, this program may also present a threat to your system security. Most probably you do not want to infect your computer with more malware programs and you do not want to find out how crooks can scam you into revealing your personal details. That is why we suggest that you remove DraftFactor ASAP.
How can I delete DraftFactor?
As usual, we will not let you go without efficient solutions. In fact, you are quite lucky with this application as it has a working uninstaller that does not seem to leave any leftovers on your system. Therefore, all you need to do is find this uninstaller in Control Panel and run it. Please use our guide below if you do not know how to do this. In order to protect your computer from malware invasions it is also important to keep all your programs and drivers updated. This way, cyber criminals cannot exploit older security holes to access and modify information on your PC. Of course, it is also just as important to be more careful using the web. It is best to keep some basic rules of surfing if you want to try to keep your computer clean without a professional anti-malware application.
