Can I trust Neon Great?

Neon Great (also known as NeonGreat) is a potentially unwanted program which can show up on your computer without your permission. According to PC security experts, it belongs to “adware” category. This term can be translated to “ad-supported” and it means that the program is used for showing commercial content and generating income to its owners. The more you keep Neon Great virus on your computer, the more you see that it seeks to earn the money instead of helping you save it while you are shopping online. Beware that this unwanted program is capable of causing hundreds of annoying pop-up ads that show up in a form of banner ads, in-text links, pop-up ads and similar notifications. In addition, you can notice continuous redirects to unknown websites, slow downs and other problems that are typically initiated on each of your web browsers. No, don’t think that this application is capable of stealing your bank data and other financial information! This program is not used for initiating such dangerous activities! Nevertheless, according to PC security experts, you should remove Neon Great from your computer before it redirects you to some very suspicious and unknown website.
