If using Firefox:

  • Open Firefox
  • Select the three parallel lines menu and go to Add-ons.
  • Find the unwanted add-on and delete it from the browser – if there is more than one unwanted extension, remove all of them.
  • Go to the browser menu again, select Options, and then click on Home from the sidebar to the left.

  • Tip: If you think you have singled out the unwanted process but are not sure, it’s always a good idea to search for information about it on the Internet – this should give you a general idea if the process is a legitimate one from a regular program or from your OS or if it is indeed likely linked to the adware.

  • Once in the File Location folder for the suspicious process, start testing all of the files that are stored there by dragging them to our free online scanner available below.

    What is Multi Speed Up?

    Unfortunately, in certain situations, the Trojan has already completed its malicious agenda by the time the victim realizes there has been an infection and nothing could be done to undo what the malware has done. That’s why it is so important to have a reliable antivirus program in place in order to be able to identify threats like Multi Speed Up quickly and protect your computer from potentially irreparable harm.
    And since we mentioned protection, we also would like to stress on the importance of having good online habits. If you apply few simple online safety rules, you will greatly reduce the chances of meeting Trojans, Ransomware, Spyware and other nasty viruses across the web. For instance, you should try to keep away from spam e-mail messages, sketchy web links, random pop-ups, and different web attachments, pirated copies of software and low-quality websites since these are the ideal transmitters of various security hazards.

    Is Multi Speed Up dangerous?

    Things could quickly get really bad if you accidentally land on Multi Speed Up or some similar malware while you surf the web carelessly because, most Trojans could harm the computer they  get to compromise in a number of ways. Hackers may code them and re-program them to perform multiple malicious tasks one after the other. A Trojan can spy on its victims, or infect the compromised computer with other viruses. The notorious ransomware viruses are sometimes inserted onto users’ machines with the aid of a Trojan.
    The conclusion that can be drawn from this paragraph is that Trojans are usually incredibly harmful and must be removed from the compromised machines ASAP. If not, a number of problems may occur as a consequence of their malicious background activities.
