FlashBeat Removal Instructions
FlashBeat is one of many advertising-supported applications. It should not be kept on your computer. All it does is flood you with various commercial content that has nothing to do with your interests. This is not surprising as the main purpose of the program is to boost online traffic, not to be useful to you in any way.
The adware enters your PC together with other free software and is rarely noticed during installation. If you want to get rid of the never-ending pop-ups, hyperlinks, banners and other ads that fill your browsers, you will have to terminate FlashBeat.
How does FlashBeat work?
FlashBeat works like any other ad-supported program. It is a clone of PicColor and is based on SuperFish engine. The adware does not have an official page where it could be downloaded. It comes as an additional offer when you install freeware and shareware applications. This offer can be declined. All you need to do is choose Advanced installation option and deselect all programs that you find unnecessary. That is the only way to avoid potentially unwanted applications and still acquire the software of your choice. We suggest that you do that next time you install freeware.
The reason most computer users delete FlashBeat soon after they realize they were infected by this useless application is not just because of the annoying ads, although that is a big part of it. It is also because these adverts can expose you to unsafe commercial content and be used to trick you into infecting your PC or disclosing your personal data. It would be best to stay away from all commercials until you get rid of FlashBeat. Moreover, the software is also responsible for slowing down your Internet connection and using up a lot of your system resources. You should not keep it on your computer.
