What does Steel Cut do?
Once the adware enters your computer, it immediately infiltrates Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. The fact that a trustworthy browser Google Chrome immediately blocks it, should be more than enough to prove to you that you cannot trust the application. In fact, you also must be very careful with all the ads it presents you with. The problem is that the adware is not liable for any damage done to your system by the third parties. Consequently, the software does not monitor those parties and thus nobody knows who stands behind the ads. It seems likely that at least some of the ads belong to hackers and if you click them, they will direct you to malicious sites. The possible results of such exposure includes malware infection, information and monetary loss. Protect your PC and terminate Steel Cut.
If you wonder why the presented ads correspond so well with your latest searches, know that the software follows your online habits and uses the gathered data to make the ads more attractive. Furthermore, the information is also sold to the third parties, so you may never know who bought your data and for what purposes it was used. You should not tolerate such uncontrollable spread of your information and that is why our advise is to eliminate Steel Cut.
