Lemurleap

Lemurleap Description


Lemurleap Screenshot 1Lemurleap is an adware program that displays advertisements through your browser while providing little to no means of altering the display of these advertisements. In line with the typical strategies of similar adware programs like SaveNShare or Coupon Pigeon, Lemurleap often ‘leaps’ onto your computer without warning and usually is noticed after Lemurleap begins modifying your browser to display new advertisements and other unwanted changes. While malware researchers would be hesitant to categorize Lemurleap as a threat to your computer to the same degree that a Trojan would be, you should consider removing Lemurleap with anti-malware software as a basic security measure for keeping your Web-browsing settings under your full and unimpeded control.

Lemurleap: When Adware Springs into Action


Lemurleap is a new form of adware brought to you by the same company responsible for Adware.Somoto and related PC threats. Besides the advertisements that are quite possibly its most prominent symptoms, Lemurleap infections also may include some components traditionally associated with browser hijackers, such as functions for changing your browser’s homepage to a new site or redirecting your Web searches to other search engines. However, SpywareRemove.com malware experts have not yet identified any cases of Lemurleap using its functions to promote high-level PC threats or other highly toxic types of Web content that would endanger your computer.

Therefore, for the most part, Lemurleap should be considered simple adware that only is a small security issue for your PC.

Because of Lemurleap’s ties with Somoto, Lemurleap also may be distributed by PUP.BundleInstaller.BI, a software bundle utility that allows multiple types of software to be installed through a single package. If you scan an installer file before opening it and it is detected as a variant of this bundler, SpywareRemove.com malware researchers recommend deleting the file, rather than taking the risk of dealing with Lemurleap or other adware as the price paid for any new programs with questionable benefits.

Turning Lemurleap into a Lemur Stopped in Its Tracks


Adware and PUPs just like Lemurleap may include a variety of fail-safes that prevent them from being deleted from your computer very easily, and SpywareRemove.com malware researchers additionally stress that a single Lemurleap infection also may include several other types of PC threats – whether they’re installed through PUP.BundleInstaller.BI or some other method. General anti-malware scans from suitable programs should be able to detect and delete both Lemurleap and any other threat associated with its presence on your computer, and doing so at the first opportunity can only improve your Web-browsing experience.

Installers for Lemurleap and other adware programs may take various formats but may conceal the presence of the adware. Watch for potential Lemurleap installers in such applications as free FTP clients, DVD burners, media players and PDF creation tools, all of which have been favored infection vectors for spreading Lemurleap and other adware to fresh victims.
