Remove iPadian (Free Instructions)

Why downloading iPadian is not a good idea:

Even though “iPadian virus” is not the best term to describe this program, it is exactly how it is often referred to by the users online. The security professionals, however, deem this program as a potentially unwanted and, specifically classify it as an adware. Adware programs are known for modifying the computer’s browser settings to display sponsored ads and generate advertising revenue for its creators. There are multiple programs that are monetized through similar techniques, and iPadian seems to be one of them. If you do not agree with such practices, you should simply remove iPadian from your computer. Make sure you check your system with some reputable antivirus tool after the uninstall, just in case.

If you have never had a chance to use an Apple iPad, you may feel tempted by this program since iPadian is an iOS emulator which allows the users to try out Apple iPad straight from their Windows desktop. On the official website, the software creators offer several versions of this app. One of the versions is designed specifically for gaming and can be purchased for $10 USD while the simpler iPadian app is free to download. However, on the download page, it straightforwardly disclosed that the free version is ad supported, so you can expect ads showing up here and there while using it. Unfortunately, the users report that, in reality, the iPadian ads are very intrusive and annoying. They not only appear in extensive numbers but may also cover the original content of the website you are visiting. Also, the constant generating of ads may trigger a variety of different problems, such as system errors, slowdowns, browser crashes, not to mention, of course, the iPadian redirect issue. Even though this program is legitimate, we do not recommend wasting your computer’s space and resources and take care of the iPadian removal. Besides, this app merely replicates the iOS so you probably will not experience the full functionality of the real operating system after all.

How did this program appear on my PC?

If you have not downloaded iPadian directly from its official website, but you still see it on your computer, this suggests that the program may have entered your system stealthily, without your permission. Most likely, you have inadvertently downloaded and installed this program together with other software. Such practice is very common in the distribution of potentially unwanted programs, so this raises concern about the iPadian’s trustworthiness. You should always opt for the Advanced installation settings if you wish to avoid some more dangerous threats infiltrating your computer in the same way. Remember that Quick or Recommended modes do not disclose the full information about the contents of the software, so potentially unwanted programs can easily sneak in.
