What is MultiSurveys?
Advertising-supported applications are very annoying programs that are responsible for a continuous stream of commercial advertisements. MultiSurveys is one of these programs; however, it pretends to be a really trustworthy application. If you visit its official website multisurveys.com, you will notice that it promises to provide users with various paid online surveys. Many users want to earn extra money, so they immediately install MultiSurveys on their computers. Of course, there are also cases when this adware sneaks onto computers rather secretly. Actually, it does not really matter how this program has entered your system because we still suggest getting rid of it. We know that it might be rather hard to do that for some users, so we have decided to prepare the manual removal instructions. They are placed below this article. Feel free to use these instructions after you fully read this article.
What does MultiSurveys do?
It is advisable to remove MultiSurveys from the system because this program is not as beneficial as it claims to be. If you double-click on its shortcut which will be put on your Desktop, you will notice that this adware opens its main window together with mindspay.com or regflow.com, which contain online surveys. In other words, MultiSurveys simply redirects users to those web pages, and it does not even have its own interface. There is a possibility that these websites might be slightly modified because adware redirects users to multisurveys.com/redir.php first. It has been observed that it will take users to lamphouseoffers.com/redirect.php?sid=BMS&message=Please%20wait too immediately after it is installed. Actually, it seems that MultiSurveys does not do anything else. In other words, it just redirects users to different web pages. As this software is an ad-supported program, there is a slight possibility that it will also display advertisements on a user’s screen. If it happens that you see them, you should ignore them all completely.
In order to do what it has to do, MultiSurveys applies some changes to the system. First of all, it creates three registry keys in the system registry:
- [HKCU/HKLM]Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\DOMStorage\www.multisurveys.com
- [HKCU/HKLM]Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\DOMStorage\multisurveys.com
Secondly, it adds shortcuts on Desktop and puts its folder in the Start menu. Last but not least, users can easily find its main folder – they just need to visit %PROGRAMFILES% or %PROGRAMFILES(x86)%. Finally, it is very likely that users will see the Multi Surveys process. It will appear in the Task Manager.
It has been observed that MultiSurveys is mainly targeted as users living in the USA; however, we are sure that it might slither onto computers of users who live somewhere else too because this adware comes bundled in InstallCore installers. In most cases, these installers are promoted on various file-sharing and torrent websites. Researchers working at anti-spyware-101.com are sure that it does not travel alone, so they have run a few tests. These tests have revealed that this particular adware travels together with Search Know, Sweet-page.com, Yoursearching.com, System Healer, and MyPCBackup. If these threats manage to slither onto your computer and you detect them, you should eliminate them all immediately because they might really expose you to potential threats too. In addition, they might use your Internet, slow down your PC, and perform other suspicious activities behind your back.
As there are so many ad-supported (adware) programs on the web, it is a must to do something in order to protect the system from harm. Unfortunately, it is not very easy to do that. Therefore, we highly recommend that you simply install security software. Do not forget that it is a must to update it periodically. You will also need to perform system scans from time to time.
