One of the most annoying things that can happen to your PC and to your browsing program is an adware app to get installed on the machine and to get added to the browser. Adware is a specific category of software that consists of programs and apps that normally can’t operate on their own and instead need to get added to a browser in order to function. Normally, popular browsing programs such as Chrome, IE, Firefox and Edge are the main targets of adware since those are used by the most users. Above all, the adware apps seek exposure and need to get onto as many PCs as possible. The reason for that is the main purpose of most such software components which is to advertise stuff on the screens of the users. Random pop-ups, page-redirects, banners, download requests for different programs and other applications, blinking box messages and many more are likely to start spamming your screen the moment you open a browser that has an adware app attached to it. Of course, most users wouldn’t really want to install such software on their machines but this is where the different sneaky installation and distribution methods used by adware apps come into play. File-bundles, e-mail spam messages, misleading and deceitful download prompts from different obscure sites and many similar methods can be used to distribute a given adware program.

Security hazards related to adware apps like Google Crash Handler

There is certainly no need to panic if Google Crash Handler has somehow gotten installed on your machine. As we already told you, this isn’t a real virus and it will likely not try to harm the system of your PC or make any damaging changes to it. That said, it’s pretty much never a good thing having an ad-generating piece of software on your PC. On the one hand, it wouldn’t really offer you anything useful in the majority of the cases. On the other hand, the annoying ads are likely going to be way too frustrating for you to tolerate. Not only that, but also you might potentially get your PC exposed to different threats if you aren’t careful. The reason for that is the fact you could never really be certain that any of the ads generated by Google Crash Handler won’t actually link you to dangerous web locations with nasty malware infections like Trojans, Spyware and Ransomware inside of them. Even if Google Crash Handler isn’t really a harmful program, you are still not advised to keep it on your PC or to interact with its ads if you don’t want to risk the security of your PC or files.

Recently, there have been a lot of reports about Google Crash Handler – this is one good example of what you don’t want to have on your computer. Though it isn’t really dangerous like a Ransomware virus or like a Trojan Horse, this adware app is certainly something that you don’t want on your PC and below we will show you how to remove it.
