How to remove unchecky (virus removal guide) botcrawl

Unchecky (also known as the Unchecky virus) is cross-browser adware and an ad-serving platform that specifically targets internet users based off of their past and current browsing experiences. Once Unchecky adware has infiltrated a computer system internet users will become bombarded by pop-up ads that might say something similar to “Ads by Unchecky” on them.

The Unchecky virus injects the webpages internet users visit with pop-up and targeted advertisements, as well as sponsored search results and suggestions. This is a big concern because in order to create ‘targeted’ advertisements and sponsored search results Unchecky adware will need to access and gather user browsing data and modify current browser settings.


Information this adware observes includes all data on the websites you visit and all browsing activities, such as information submitted into online forms (online searches, email addresses, telephone numbers, etc.), bookmarks, and browser history. This information together will allow the adware and programs that it bundles with to generate advertisements that target internet users based off their current and past online habits.

Unchecky adware also bundles with other unwanted programs, malware, and malicious threats. This adware and the programs that it bundles with schedule new tasks and change existing system start-up settings in order to run every time Windows starts and remain enabled. Programs and browser attachments that may arrive with this adware infection can also cause additional issues for computer and internet users not relating to pop-up advertisements.

Even though the Unchecky virus is not technically defined as a computer virus the unwanted program is still a threat or the sign of a serious computer infection. Since Unchecky is known to download and install alongside third-party malware, malicious files, and additional potentially unwanted programs (PUPs), including browser hijackers like Dregol, it will be necessary to uninstall multiple programs and remove multiple browser add-ons and extensions in order to stop all unwanted activities from occurring. Apart from manually eradicating the program and others that it bundles with, files may remain undetected to the average computer user. That is why the professional internet security community recommends to use a reputable anti-malware product to remove Unchecky and malicious files that it may bundle with. How did Unchecky get on my computer?

Unchecky and the programs it bundles with are usually always contracted without user consent or knowledge. The adware is used to promote free downloadable content from a variety of locations on the web; therefor it bundles with multiple objects. Free downloadable content that this adware may bundle with includes freeware, shareware, torrents, and more.

Users who wish to consciously and manually install freeware may be given the opportunity to accept or decline an offer to install Unchecky adware and other objects alongside the freeware during the installation and setup process; However, the user request to decline the adware from installing is often ignored by the program or presented in a deceptive manner and the adware will install anyways.
