PredictAd or predictad.com is a platform for creating search completion tools.  This advertising service has software which can be bundled with freeware and if you have installed PredictAd accidentally, Anti-Spyware-101.com team recommends that you remove it from the PC and browsing tool due to some particular reasons.

Why should I remove PredictAd?

PredictAd can be used to refer to it application AutoCompletePro. This application is said to speed up your search as it provides suggestions for your keywords. It enables the user to access Google Search, Wikipedia and other handy websites. AutoCompletePro can be bundled with 7art Nature Screensaver software which allows you to set various screensaver images.

If you do not uncheck the box claiming “Install AutoCompletePro”, not only will you have its add-on installed but also the home page changed. The home page of your browsers will be changed to search.autocompletepro.com and the search engines may be changed to Web Search or ACpro. The search engine that you will find whenever you open the browser will display localized advertisements or warnings which you should ignore in order not to become a victim of cyber criminals.

It may also occur that not all your browser will be affected. Even thought the home page is changed on Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, it may happen that PredictAd or AutoCompletePro will not be compatible with your present version of Mozilla Firefox. In any case, you should be aware that search.autocompletepro.com can also provide you with links leading to websites advertising some items or services. In case you accidentally click a malicious link and access a website that is used to spread malware, you expose your privacy and personal information to danger.

If you do not like the advertisements and the tool that is meant to enter keywords faster, remove PredictAd software right now. The sooner you do it, the better it is as you can again use Google or any other safe search engine.
