MeMedia.AdVantage Detection and Removal
MeMedia.AdVantage is a program that detects your surfing habits while you are surfing and communicates this information with its home servers. The information is then analyzed so that MeMedia.AdVantage can deliver pop-up ads that related to your surfing activity.
In this way, MeMedia.AdVantage acts as not only as adware, but also as spyware. As adware, it slows your computer by eating up processing power from your computer and bandwidth from your Internet connection. It also provides a breach in security that malicious programs may use to infect your computer.
These advertisements often take the form of full-page size ads that can be confusing to the user. It may also display ads in the lower-right corner of the screen, with the “close” button at the lower-right. This can be confusing, as these buttons are usually top-right.
As spyware, this program violates your privacy by reporting on the sites you visit.
MeMedia.AdVantage usually comes onto your computer bundled with other software. It might come with freeware, sharware, or bit torrent downloads. It may also indicate that other spyware or adware has made its way into your system.
It creates a large number of registry keys and executable files that must be deleted before the program is removed and your security is reinstated. We recommend an anti-spyware program such as SpyZooka for this purpose.
