Kellystoys is adware that is responsible for the creation of many pop-ups, banners and in-text ads. These commercial materials may overwhelm your browser, regardless if you use Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer. Although the official page of Kellystoys claims the ads are there to help you, in fact, they try to benefit the creators of the adware. As the tool generates traffic towards sponsored third-party sites, its authors get referral commissions. The sites, promoted by adware extensions, are often unreliable. This principle also applies to Kellystoys, but, in this case, the sponsored platforms may even be disturbing as the adware primarily recommends sex toys. The tool may also insert sponsored links among the legitimate search results. This way, you may be transferred to the partner sites even if you have no intention to go there. It is recommended not to click on the ads for security reasons. If Kellystoys redirects you to potentially harmful pages, you may be encouraged to download dangerous content, such as fake updates. When they notice the "Ads by Kellystoys", some people cannot recall installing the questionable application. The adware sometimes enters without the knowledge of the users as it comes bundled with other programs. The security experts don't see any good reason to keep Kellystoys in your PC, so you should consider removing it.
