What is Techgile?
Techgile is one of many adware programs developed by SuperWeb LLC. The company is infamous for its ad-supported applications like Klip Pal, Fortunitas, SaveOn, SunriseBrowse, HypeNet, Malt Mark and many more. These programs are usually promoted as something they are not. Techgile, for example, is advertised as an application that can help you save money while shopping online.
In reality, it will do nothing more than bother you with never-ending ads and pop-ups. What is worse, however, is that it can actually expose you to corrupted websites. We recommend that you delete Techgile from your system.
How does Techgile work?
The main purpose of Techgile is to fill your browser with various adverts. The ads will be labeled “powered by Techgile”, “Ads by Techgile” and so on. Since the program strives to generate web traffic, it will do whatever it can in order to expose you to as many adverts as possible. What we would advise is to steer clear from these ads if you want to keep your PC infection-free. Adware can easily be exploited by cyber criminals. If you click on a corrupted link, you may infect your computer system with malware or spyware. You could also fall victim to some other online scam that will lead to financial losses. There is no need for you to take these risks. You should terminate Techgile and return to safe web browsing.
Although Techgile does have an official website (techgile.net), it is just as useless as the program itself. You can not download the application there which means that it arrives in freeware bundles. In order to avoid potentially unwanted programs while installing freeware and shareware, you need to choose Advanced installation option. If you do, you will be able to decline the additional offers and thus protect your PC from undesirable modifications.
How to remove Techgile from my system?
Fortunately, it is not that difficult to eliminate Techgile from your computer. All you need to do is access Control Panel and erase the application from there. Full instructions of Techgile removal are provided below and you are welcome to use them. Still, you should keep in mind that manual removal may not be 100% effective and some components of the threat could be left behind. That is why we recommend you download a free scanner and check if the manual removal was successful. Alternatively, you can implement an anti-malware utility that will remove Techgile and other infections, should there be any. You will not have to worry about your computer safety as long as you have it installed.
