Enhancetronic is an advertisement-serving platform that uses browser add-ons, browser helper objects (BHOs), and extensions to display pop-up ads on Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Microsoft Internet Explorer. Frequently referred to as the Enhancetronic virus (enhance tronic virus), this item is detected as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) or malware and is found in the adware, browser hijacker, and spyware categories of infections.
Enhancetronic malware is similar to adware called Text Enhance and primarily installs to a computer running the Microsoft Windows Operating System. This program also attaches to Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer without direct user consent in order to serve targeted advertisements; which in return may create additional privacy relating issues for computer users.
Once Enhancetronic adware is installed to Windows, the program and/or associated third-party items, including browser add-ons will being to collect user information and will then use the collected data to display target advertisements, deals, and offers.
Enhancetronic advertisements are displayed in a variety of forms. Some are pop-under browser redirects that likely appear under an open browser window, in-text ads that say something similar to “Ads by Enhancetronic” on them, or pop-up advertisements that appear in images and say “brought by Enhancetronic Deals” on them.
Furthermore, software associated with this program may change existing browser settings, including the homepage and default search engine. This causes browsers to startup and redirect to unwanted websites and search engines when a user boots an affected browser, uses the address or omni bar to search the web, or opens a new tab.
In some cases no Enhancetronic extension is found even though advertisements are generating. If this is the case you will need to only uninstall unwanted software that may have a different title than suggested via Windows Control Panel or the software’s uninstall.exe file found in the directory folder.
