It could be a hard-hitting anti-viral tool, for the ones who favor the modern way of hunting, or you could stay with bare hands like your predecessors did since the dawn of the Web. Don't hesitate to decide! If you’re ready to get rid of this adware – ignore the other parts and go to removal. In case you wish to read the crucial information on Source Add App and the way it works – you'd better read the whole article. We’ll define for you the ways through which adware sneaked into the device, and how you have to act to prevent further infection. Besides this, we will explain to you all you have to know about Source Add App’s features, and how perilous it is if left alone for a long time.

What is Source Add App. Removal reasons and methods

Suspicious tools, to which Source Add App belongs, are being developed to show you ads and convince you of their trueness. It's plain, annoying and nearly offenseless. If your device has this adware and nothing else – the OS, probably, will hold on for some time, but it will never turn out like that, as advertising tools always call their mates to every kick-up. Mind us, there will be a rave-up, and it will be astounding. Adware exposes the system in the face of incoming perils, and it can constipate it with suspicious utilities in a moment. In most cases, there will be other pieces of adware or plain viruses, but sometimes, you get some sort of ransomware, and it can maim the OS really bad. Source Add App is a huge hole in the OS' defense, and you'd better close it on time.



We know many types of adware, and they could get into the PC in various ways. We know all of them, but some methods are too poor to include them on our list. Here we've gathered the most widespread ones:


  • Sponsored installation, AKA "bundling" is the easiest manner for Source Add App to infect user's workstation. It’s quite easy to set up, and its best aspect (for swindlers, of course) is that user does everything without any help. The only thing they have to do is to create an adware bundle where three or four examples of adware are combined with a single relatively helpful gratis program. A customer needs that utility, so he downloads the bundle, installs its content and in the end - gets every single piece of dangerous trash from it. To evade this, you'd better read with caution every window with checkboxes. Don’t click "agree" without thinking, as it might cause serious issues.
  • Download through developers’ site. This manner is not as effective as bundling, and generally, it’s successful when an advertising tool is placed on the more or less popular portal. Say, some businessman wants his site on the first page of search results and creates a tool, reminding you of some interesting changes, fresh giveaways, and other stuff. The worst thing about such programs is that after a while it will begin displaying sponsored links every five seconds. Fortunately, suchlike programs could be deleted easily, and they won’t come back again.
  • Download from scammers' web page or via a special link. This is more about real viruses, but adware uses such technique from time to time. We're sure that you’ve encountered it at least once. While you're on a website, you see an ad, proposing you to download a superior tool which will search for information safer than well-known search engines. You've seen it all before, huh? You pass the link and find a shiny suspicious page, convincing you that regular search utilities are useless and tricky, yet THIS tool is not like them. It is straight, safe, and won’t pass your data to big companies. And it really is so, as it'll dump the data to small and humble organizations and bands of scammers, who will make use of it. These programs are also simple to avoid: do not mind pop-up banners. It doesn't matter whether or not they look reliable – don't click at all. Reject all suggestions, originating from strange websites, and your laptop will be clean and fast.


We are certain that the virus penetrated the workstation via one of those ways, and after reading the above section you're able to protect the PC from them. Now it’s time to delete adware.
