SurfAccuracy - Watching Your Browsing Behavior

Feel like someone's watching you? You probably should. SurfAccuracy watches your browser to see where you're headed, then sends you targeted advertisements based on your behavior. Don't bother looking over your shoulder! The watcher is inside your machine.

What is SurfAccuracy?

SurfAccuracy is an adware program that sends you affiliate advertisements from its network of companies that wish to advertise with it. While it does not do any serious damage to your machine, it is a good idea to get rid of it because of the content of some of the advertisements and because it puts you and your personal data at risk from a security standpoint.

Things You Might Notice With SurfAccuracy

If you do have SurfAccuracy installed on your machine, you may notice a number of things. One of the first things you might see is how slowly your computer as a whole seems to respond to you. While at one time you may have just waited seconds for a single program to open, you may now wait several minutes to get a response from your desired program. With a program like SurfAccuracy, many processes are running constantly in the background of your computer. This takes up much of your computer's virtual memory. As a result, things respond more slowly to your commands. You can visually see this process by looking at the "Processes" tab of your Windows task manager. You may notice that your system resources are at nearly one hundred percent with something like SurfAccuracy installed on your machine. Without a program like this, they're likely only to be at ten to fifteen percent on any given day.

Another thing you are likely to notice with SurfAccuracy is the number of popups you get while you are browsing. SurfAccuracy promises companies who sign up with it that customers will see their advertisements a certain number of times during a browsing session. For SurfAccuracy, the best way to deliver those advertisements is through a popup. This can not only be annoying to you while you browse, but it can also be troublesome if you have children who use the computer on a regular basis. Not all of SurfAccuracy's advertisements are family friendly. In fact, many of them are for pornographic or gambling related sites, and if that's something you worry about your children seeing, it's best to keep them away from the computer until you have safely uninstalled SurfAccuracy from your machine.

One final thing you may notice with SurfAccuracy is changes to your browser settings. While your default home page may once have been something like a family friendly search engine or the weather for your area, your new default home page may be the SurfAccuracy site or the site of an affiliate. You may also notice that your browser redirect page has been changed as well. At one time, you may have gotten a message like "Page Not Found." Now you will probably get redirected to SurfAccuracy's site or one of its advertisers.

Pay No Attention to the Man Behind the Curtain

These little things you notice with SurfAccuracy are certainly an annoyance, but there are some bigger problems that can occur in your system once SurfAccuracy is installed that you may never see. First, SurfAccuracy has the ability to communicate your personal information with another server at will. In fact, it uses this ability every time you start a browsing session. It looks for the keywords in the pages you browse, communicates them to its home server, and the home server then sends you advertisements targeted at you. For example, if you're looking at articles about mortgage rates, it may send you an advertisement for one of the affiliate mortgage companies. This, though, is not always the case. SurfAccuracy is going to send you advertisements whether you hit on their keywords or not, so while you may be shopping for new furniture, you could be getting advertisements for gambling websites.

In most cases, SurfAccuracy does not transmit your sensitive personal data, but unfortunately, it does have the ability to. Because SurfAccuracy can see everything that you do, if you log into sites with bank accounts, credit card numbers, or other concerning data, SurfAccuracy does have the power to record and transmit that data.

The other real concern with SurfAccuracy is the security hole it creates in your system. SurfAccuracy has the ability to download and install other adware and spyware programs without your knowledge or permission. This means that your adware program could get much worse overnight, thus destroying your machine.

SurfAccuracy Removal

You have four options if you wish to remove SurfAccuracy from your machine. Your first option is to remove it through the add/remove programs function of your control panel. This, though, doesn't work in all cases. In more than one instance, people have tried this, thought it successful, then logged on the next morning only to discover SurfAccuracy was still a part of their machines. Your next option is to run a system restore command on your machine. Unfortunately, though, this only works right after SurfAccuracy has become part of your system, and many people don't notice it until it's been there for a few weeks.

You can also try to manually remove SurfAccuracy. In order to do that, delete the related program files and registry keys it created at install. Keep in mind, though, that working within your system's registry can be a bit dangerous at times. One wrong keystroke, and you may permanently damage your system.

Your best option to remove SurfAccuracy is to install a good antispyware program like ParetoLogic. It will not only remove SurfAccuracy, but it will help to keep you safe from other adware programs as well.
