The AVBoost program may be promoted to users as an added security layer that can provide extra security features to users who employ the services of an active AV engine. The AVBoost software may be proposed as a Web filter that can aid you in avoiding insecure pages and help you block connections to known infection sources. You may find the AVBoost program in the company of tools like NetLiker and Protector. AVBoost does not appear to have an official site on the Internet, and PC users may install the desktop app unknowingly by handling a freeware bundle with the 'Express' and 'Recommended' option.

You may be lead to believe that AVBoost provides added security but that it not true necessarily. The AVBoost software is an ad-supported service, and it may collect information like your Internet history, downloads log and bookmarks collection to help advertisers deliver marketing content via AVBoost's services. Users that add the AVBoost shield to their browser may find ad boxes, banners, and pop-up windows carrying the tag 'Powered by AVBoost' in their browser. The ads that may be presented via AVBoost may be made available through the onclickpredictiv.com/a/display.php?r=[RANDOM CHARACTERS] link. The onclickpredictiv.com domain is classified as unreliable and corresponds to three IP addresses that include:


The same IP addresses have been recorded while investigating spyware, adware, riskware and ransomware. It does not mean that onclickpredictiv.com is connected to these threats directly, but it does mean that AVBoost may display content hosted on insecure servers. The AVBoost shield may provide some protection against known infection sources, but the advertisements associated with its sponsors might bypass its security and offers links to corrupted resources. Needless to say, the AVBoost software may not be the best at filtering content online, and users may not be satisfied with its performance. AVBoost is classified as a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) that users may be interested in removing.
