Rad Raven

What is Rad Raven?

Rad Raven is an adware application that collects information about your browsing habits and shows you ads it guesses to be relevant, going by the information it gathered. According to its official Internet page, “Website navigation is enhanced with Rad Raven.” There’s literally no other information on that page. Would you trust a product that has nothing else to say about what it does and how it works? We certainly wouldn’t, leading us to recommend removing Rad Raven immediately.test 100% FREE spyware scan and

Where did Rad Raven come from and how did I get it?

Fortunately for you, our research team did look into the roots of Rad Raven. With the website as our first clue, we found that it’s one of the adware applications made by SuperWeb LLC. Every product they make uses the same template for its web page and operates in the same manner. The only things that change are the name of the application and its corresponding website. While the websites look essentially the same, their color schemes and illustrations differ.

Like most adware, Rad Raven gets on your computer bundled with free programs. If you’re used to choosing Standard setup while installing something, don’t be surprised when you end up having stuff you didn’t want at all on your computer. Bundling works by adding the option to install additional software. Checkboxes where you state your agreement to install these programs are checked by default. This means that unless you manually checked it off, you agreed to install it. To avoid this problem in the future, always choose Advanced or Custom installation and carefully read everything, checking off boxes as you go.

What does Rad Raven do?

Once installed, Rad Raven gathers data about the websites you frequent and the things you buy online. Once it has enough data to go on, the application starts showing you various commercial ads, trying to get you to click them. If you do, you will get redirected to a third-party website and the Rad Raven developers will get some money. This pay-per-click scheme is by far the most popular way that is used by adware companies to make money. If you don’t want adware developers to make money by tracking your browsing, download a dependable anti-malware tool to protect you in the future.

Why should I remove Rad Raven and how do I do it?

If the ads are not enough to make you wish Rad Raven wasn’t on your machine, consider that some ads it provides could link to web pages that contain dangerous malware, like rogue antispyware applications, Trojans, or worms that are much harder to remove. Through these links, one adware application could turn into hundreds. If that happened, you would be very lucky if adware was all you caught. Take action while there’s only one of them, because they are much harder to remove in bulk.

Rad Raven can be removed either manually or automatically. For automatic Rad Raven removal, you will have to download a trustworthy computer protector, like SpyHunter. It will scan your system and get rid of any threats, while offering real-time protection in the future. To remove Rad Raven manually, you should follow the directions below.
