Where does NetCrawl come from?

NetCrawl comes bundled with other freeware applications. Users download this program from third-party file hosting websites. As you can see, unsuspecting computer users download NetCrawl onto their computers themselves. Usually, it is possible to omit this application from the list of programs you want to install on your PC, but users are often too impatient to check all the installation wizard steps, so they end up installing a lot of unnecessary applications.

Normally, one would expect a program to have an official homepage. NetCrawl does have one at, but it is useless. The direct download link is not working, and the website provides false information on NetCrawl.

What does NetCrawl do?

According to the information at the official website, NetCrawl is supposed to provide you with “quality website navigation.” It also says that this program installs extensions to Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer web browsers, but the newest Google Chrome versions are no longer compatible with NetCrawl. It shows that this application is not reliable since the browser developers have blocked it completely.

Also, instead of improving your “website navigation,” NetCrawl simply floods you with commercial ads and shopping suggestions whenever you access online shopping websites like eBay, BestBuy, Amazon, and so on. Needless to say, that you should not click any of the NetCrawl ads, because you can never know where the embedded links might lead you. This adware application does not review the third-party content so even cybercriminals could embed their own malicious content into the ads as long as they know how to do it. As you can see, these are some serious security issues and if you can avoid them by removing NetCrawl completely, do it immediately.

How to remove NetCrawl?

Fortunately, manual NetCrawl removal is not complicated, and you can uninstall the application via Control panel. You will most probably need to remove NetCrawl extension from Mozilla Firefox directly through browser’s settings since it does not get deleted automatically. Also, you should scan your system with SpyHunter free scanner in search for other unwanted applications because you are bound to have them.

Do not forget that manual removal may not always remove the adware application completely, so getting yourself a trustworthy antispyware tool is always a good idea. It will remove all the remaining files automatically, at the same time protecting your system against similar intruders in the future.
