What does Insurance Shine do?
The functionality of Insurance Shine is not that different from other similar adware programs that are active nowadays. As soon as it enters your operating system it starts a background system service. This service is an essential part of this ad-supported program. It can be seen and killed via Task Manager. Unfortunately, the name of it could be random; thus, a non-advanced user might have some trouble while trying to identify the malicious system service. The primary function of it is to help the adware program in question to connect to adware servers. Once the connections are established your web browser will get filled with a vast amount of invasive third-party web content. Such content will interfere with your online activities, to say the least. Usually such content is presented as ads, pop-ups, and coupons. Keep in mind that nothing that Insurance Shine presents you with is actually useful. All the ads and pop-ups will only cause disruptions and interferences while you are surfing the web for as long as this adware is up and running on your computer. It is important to note that by killing the background system service, you will not be able to stop the functionality of this ad-supported program entirely. This is so because the service will restart itself upon the next system startup. Thus, you must delete Insurance Shine as a whole if you wish to experience the web they way you are used to. If you do fail to do so, your web browser will remain flooded with tons of worthless ads and pop-ups.
