What is FreeSoftToday?

FreeSoftToday is one of these programs that have many different labels: some PC security experts identify it as 'potentially unwanted program' or adware, others say that it's a virus. In fact, we can't say that this program is malicious and should be used with an extreme carefulness. However, there are several things that bother us. The most important thing that has made us to start thinking about the main aims of this program is its distribution technique. Beware that this application may show up on your computer either with or without your approval. If you want to avoid its unexpected appearance, you should carefully monitor installation of the freeware by using tips that are given below. In addition, beware that FreeSoftToday may start causing annoying activity on your computer. After hijacking each of its web browsers, this program may start showing you 'ads by FreeSoftToday', 'FreeSoftToday ads', 'by FreeSoftToday', 'brought to you by FreeSoftToday' and similar alerts. If you have already noticed continuous redirects on your browser, annoying pop-up advertisements and other unexpected things, you should check your computer for FreeSoftToday because it might be that this program managed to infiltrate it. Note that it can appear not only on those machines that run Windows OS. It can also show up on machines that run OS X, iOS, and Android. After doing so, it may also initiate tracking of user's browsing habits. It is known that this program collects information, which is related to people's mostly visited websites and data that they enter when visiting them. However, it may also get ability to know what your email address or PC's IP address/location is. We don't recommend ignoring this. If you want to protect yourself, you should remove FreeSoftToday adware. You can do that with a help of these programs: SpyHunter orWebroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus..

HOW CAN FreeSoftToday hijack MY COMPUTER?

FreeSoftToday is mostly distributed in a bundle with freeware and shareware. In order to avoid this app, you have to pay more attention to the installation process of such programs. Typically, you should find the check mark that agrees to install FreeSoftToday and deselect it. This can be done by choosing Custom or Advanced installation method of the freeware and then carefully following every installation step of the freeware. If this program has already infiltrated your machine, we can guess that you see continuous ads that are bothering you and interrupting you during each of your browsing sessions. Typically, they are filled with information about various offers, coupons and discounts and then are filled with various links. Be sure that you avoid these links because they may trick you into visiting unknown and suspicious websites. No matter how trustworthy they look, they are displayed only for money making. We don't recommend leaving FreeSoftToday on the system.

I removed the software two times, and the second time it was under a file name "ast_us_39" or something similar. But before I removed it the second time I did a file search for "freesofttoday" and the name of the second install. When a folder popped up, it had a file within with a ".cyl" file in it. I deleted it permanently and proceeded with the uninstall. I thought it was gone for good, but recently I briefly saw the icon appear in my status bar, then disappear. Is that bad? I swear to god I saw it. I havent seen it since but this is quite scary to see. Any recommendations???
