PastaLeads Removal Instructions
PastaLeads is an advertising supported software compatible with Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. According to the creators of this adware, the program is highly useful, since it is able to find you “the best service professionals in your area”.
You only need to specify your request and the application will do the rest. It will find a professional and send him or her a message from you. If the person agrees with the proposed job and is able to help you, he or she will contact you. However, no matter how great this sounds, this adware also has many negative characteristics which is why we advise to eliminate PastaLeads.
What does PastaLeads do?
First of all, while the adware is available at its official website pastaleads.com, it also often travels bundled with freeware. Even though, the creators of PastaLeads claim that application is not distributed with free software that does not inform user about additional program, it is also possible that you will not notice the undesirable intruder, if you do not follow the installation wizard. Learn to monitor every step of the process and choose Advanced or Custom option. When you are presented with End User License Agreement, read it from the beginning to an end and deselect all undesirable programs.
In addition to the provided service, this adware also may present you with numerous annoying ads labeled as ‘PastaQuotes Shopper’. The commercial pop-ups, banners, in-text ads, etc. may appear in almost every window that you open. If you are happy with the program, but the ads irritate you, you do not need to terminate PastaLeads to stop them. Instead you should use a browser add-on to disable the advertisements and continue using the application.
The last thing you should know about this software is that it follows your online activities. The adware records your search queries, browsing history, clicks, geographical location, favorite pages, and so on. This data can be used to personalize the ads, but it also can be shared with the affiliate third parties. While the program insists that it works only with the trustworthy partners, only you can decide if you are comfortable with such free spread of your information. If you feel that the software violates your privacy, erase PastaLeads at once.
