AdBeaver is an adware application that may display repeated advertisements as pop-ups or banners when you are surfing the web. The AdBeaver ads are usually made up of offers and products that may be closely related to items you have viewed on the internet in the past. AdBeaver is able to track your internet activity and seek out your internet history to display relevant ads to what it thinks you may like. Use of the AdBeaver ads by clicking on them is sure to cause website redirects to load up pages that could have questionable content or lead to the download and installation of unwanted files or programs. The tricky techniques of AdBeaver may reduce system performance or at the minimum slow down how responsive your web browser is when loading media-intensive sites. In most cases, the loading of random freeware programs will automatically install AdBeaver on your system, which is why you should be cautions when obtaining such software. Eliminating the AdBeaver threat may be a task that is left to use of an antimalware program.
