What is GreyGray?

GreyGray is a commercial application that belongs to Super Web LLC. This company has released hundreds of different apps that all promise to help people improve their browsing on the Internet. Unfortunately, but we can't claim that you will see a great difference in your browsing after downloading this app and adding it to all of your web browsers. In fact, after installing this program on your computer, you may start suffering from continuous pop-up ads that are labeled as "by GreyGray", "brought to you by GreyGray", "ads by GreyGray" and similar alerts. After clicking them you may notice that your web browser was redirected to unknown website. As long as this program is compatible with all of web browsers, you may notice that you can't avoid its ads.As you may have already understood, we don't recommend ignoring GreyGray redirects because there is no guarantee that each of sites that is promoted with the help of such technique is safe. Finally, you may not even know that GreyGray adware is tracking your browsing habits. Typically, this program collects data that is related to people's search terms, mostly visited websites, data that they enter when visiting each of their favorite sites and so on. 

The fact that GreyGray causes various pop-up ads and redirects to suspicious websites has made the most of security experts to add this program to two categories - the "potentially unwanted program" (PUP) and "adware". The other thing that you have to keep in your mind is that the most of such applications are promoted using misleading distribution methods that usually involve freeware and shareware. That's why you should be very careful when downloading free applications on your computer. If Grey Gray has already been hiding inside your PC, you should waste no time and run a full system scan with SpyHunter. Otherwise, this program may start completely annoying activities that may interrupt your browsing.

HOW CAN GreyGray hijack MY COMPUTER?

Typically, users start seeing 'Powered by GreyGray' Ads once this program enters computer. You can download it manually from such sites as cnet, and similar, butin most of ocasions it shows up after installing other program on the system. Beware that GreyGray can infiltrate your computer as a free addition of some PDF creator, download-manager or video steaming software. As soon as it enters computer, it immediately occupies Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox browsers. As a result, user starts seeing its ads every time he/she enters a shopping site. If you what to get rid of them, you should remove GreyGray from your computer.


As you can see, GreyGray is not a virus, so it can be left on your computer if you use its ads for saving the money. However, you should remove this program if you want to get rid of its ads.
