Caramava Ads and Caramava Deals. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

removal by Olivia Morelli - -   Also known as Caramava virus, ads by Caramava | Type: Adware

Caramava is the software that displays pop-up ads, advertisement banners, search ads, in-text links and other sponsored content to the browser. In other words, it is an adware program, which typically hijacks Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or other Internet browsers without PC user’s consent. Although this application claims to enhance your online shopping experience and save your time and money, you should not rely on such promises. This program is similar to SearchAdence adware, which is also categorized as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). Both of these applications are sponsored by third-party companies, which seek to lead the web traffic to their questionable websites.

What is the aim of Caramava?

As we have already mentioned, by hijacking your browsers and displaying ads, this PC intruder attempts to generate web traffic to dubious sites. To seduce you to click on such ads, this adware installs browser extensions and starts tracking websites you go to, search terms you enter in search engines, your IP address and so on. This information is used to find out what are your interests and what kind of ads would look attractive for you. In most cases, this program displays pop-up and banner-type ads, coupons with competitive prices, and price comparisons when the user is viewing product pages on Ebay.com, Amazon.com and etc. Such ads can contain redirect links to third-party websites. In fact, Caramava redirects can lead you to infectious sites that may suggest installing suspicious software. Try to avoid such suggestions, as some of them can contain harmful files. If you have encountered irritating redirects or if you have noticed ads that are entitled as “Caramava Ads” and “Caramava Deals”, you should waste no time and check your computer system with a reliable anti-spyware, for example, Reimage.
