What is Candy Box?
Candy Box is compatible with all popular browsers including Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer. The main feature of the program is simple: it displays various ads on your screen. Unfortunately, those ads may have nothing to do with your interests as that is not the main concern of the application. We recommend that you delete Candy Box from your PC.
How does Candy Box work?
As it has already been mentioned, Candy Box travels bundled with other freeware. Potentially unwanted applications often come bundled with free software as an additional offer. If you download these programs, you should pay attention to their installation wizard. Always choose Advanced or Custom installation instead of the Regular or Express one. That way you will be able to choose which components to deselect. Deselect all additional applications as there is rarely any value in them.
The reason why it would be best to get rid of Candy Box is not even because it will flood your browsers with advertisements, pop-ups, sponsored links and so on. It is because these ads are not reviewed by the application. You can never be sure if they are legitimate or not. You could be exposed to unsafe content. If you click on a corrupted link and get redirected to a malware harboring website you will unwittingly infect your computer. That could lead to system malfunctions, data loss and financial consequences. If you want to prevent that you should not leave the adware on your PC.
How to remove Candy Box?
As the application is not malicious, you should not have any difficulties removing it. Full manual Candy Box removal instructions are presented below and you are welcome to use them. However, you should bear in mind that potentially unwanted applications usually do not travel alone. That is why it would be a good idea to download a malware scanner to check if there are any other infections on your PC. If so, you can either delete them manually or download an anti-malware utility that will take care of your system automatically. The software will detect the infections and eliminate them right away. You can also use it to terminate Candy Box.
