NanoSurfer is a Possibly Unwanted Program launched by SuperWeb LLC. NanoSurfer comes bundled with freeware programs. NanoSurfer can be executed by the computer user unknowingly while installing certain programs. Although there is an option to not install NanoSurfer, it is often loaded by default because the computer user wasn't careful enough to review what other apps may have been pre-checked for installation. When installed as an add-on, NanoSurfer may take over the search engine by setting itself as the default utility. NanoSurfer may change the current settings automatically. After these changes, NanoSurfer may display several advertisements that, when clicked by the computer users, may divert their browsers to potentially threatening websites or download additional PUPs, adware or browser extensions on the affected machine. This way, NanoSurfer creators may profit from advertisement clicks.
