n the article that follows we are going to discuss a program called Jolly Wallet, which is the source of some nagging and intrusive advertisements and is classified as adware. This program may affect the users’ browsing in a couple of ways and can be the reason for much irritation and disturbance. Usually, the most popular browsers like Chrome, Firefox or Explorer are the target of programs like this, because this program uses them to display a huge number of promotional banners, pop-ups, different online ads and boxes on the users’ screen. In general, this activity is not related to some serious system threats, however, the intensive way the adware keeps throwing its nagging advertisements one after another, may really make the normal web surfing impossible and prevent users from effectively using their browser. If you are experiencing a similar disturbance, the next lines are written to help you deal with this software and effectively remove all of its intrusive popping messages from your screen. Here you are also going to find a removal guide, which is specially assembled to help you uninstall Jolly Wallet “Virus” from your system and save yourself from its activities once and for all. Before you follow the guide, though, we would encourage you to read the information below, because it contains some important details about the way that adware operates, spreads and invades your system.
How would you know that you have been invaded by adware and not some dangerous virus or malware?
Once it gets inside the system, the typical adware may immediately start with its aggressive ad-generating activity and prompt users to click on certain ads, pages or links. This activity is usually referred to as irritating and even virus-like and has the potential to interrupt the users’ browsing with some rather useless and unwanted advertising messages. However, as irritating as it could be, adware is not among the dangerous malicious threats (like viruses, Ransomware, Trojans or Spyware) and generally has no intention to perform anything harmful on your PC. Truly dangerous malware, like a Trojan or Ransomware based virus, on the other hand, can really have some destructive consequences on your system and if you don’t remove it on time, this may be fatal for your entire PC and all the data found on it. According to security experts, adware cannot be considered a threat of such a level and its main purpose is to provide efficient advertising of various services, products, sites, and promotions, not to corrupt your system. In fact, we can even say that the way the adware works is very similar to any other advertising channel, whether is a Radio or a TV. The only difference is that the ads, which it generates, get displayed on your browser and sometimes can be a bit more intrusive than what one can tolerate. So, if you don’t feel like tolerating them, you have all the rights to uninstall the software that generates them and remove all of its popping messages once and for all.
Jolly Wallet “Virus” may track your browsing – how to stop that?
Despite that we cannot accuse Jolly Wallet “Virus” of anything malicious, we need to tell you that there are some rather shady aspects of adware that you should keep in mind. For instance, this software is known for its ability to access and explore your browsing history, your latest web searches, bookmarks and the pages that you frequently visit. By doing this, the program tries to determine your interests and then uses this data to expose you to ads, which you may potentially be interested in. Again, this is nothing malicious, but still, it could be viewed as a privacy invasion and a good reason for some users to uninstall this software.
How to safely remove Jolly Wallet “Virus” from your system and bring your browser back to normal?
To remove Jolly Wallet “Virus” and safely clean your system from all its ad-generating scripts, you may need to follow the steps, shown in the removal guide below. It contains detailed instructions and screen shots, which can help you detect and eliminate the adware without fail. If you want to keep your system safe in the future, however, it is a good idea to stay away from the sources of adware as much as possible. Know that such programs are usually found in software bundles, especially free ones, which are commonly distributed through freeware or shareware platforms, torrents, spam, intrusive links, and ads, or direct downloads and installers. If you want to use a program from a particular bundle, don’t forget to customize the setup through the “Advanced” or “Custom” options, which are usually available in every installer. Avoid the Quick/Default/Automatic installation, as this is how you give permission to the whole bundle to get installed, including the potentially unwanted software, which may come along with it and always read the EULA to familiarize yourself with the setup and its content before it is too late.
