I wrote this article to help you remove Your Mini Truetest. This Your Mini Truetest removal guide works for Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer.

Your Mini Truetest is a malicious application which falls under the umbrella of adware. So, it is NOT the helpful and reliable program which is advertised to be. It is an infection and you have to remove it from your PC ASAP. It was not meant to be beneficial to you in any way. It claims to show you the best online offers and thus help you save money. Well, guess what. This is a lie. The adware does, in fact, shows you tons of ads, deals, offers, and coupons, but it is not to enhance your online shopping experience. It is to help crooks earn pay-per-click revenue. This is the reason adware gets created in the first place. Hackers use it to boost web traffic to particular pages so they can make money via the pay-per-click marketing system. However, this costs you. They use you as their sponsor. Each of your clicks fills their pockets. “Why would I click?” you may ask. Of course, we advise you not to but it is not that simple.

The adware is sneaky. First of all, it floods you with commercials on daily basis. Each page you open is heavy on ads. Also, these adverts appear so unexpectedly right under the cursor of your mouse so you click anyway. Second, the pest shows you advertisements which you will like. This way it knows you will be at least tempted to click. How does it know what you are interested in, though? You are not going to like this, but the infection studies you. It spies on you and monitors every online move you make. It knows what pages you visit, what you have searched for, what pages you have bookmarked, your pre-infection browsing history, etc.

Then, the adware uses this information to tailor ads that will spark your interest. Pretty clever, isn`t it? But there is more. By clicking on the commercials you are not only helping cybercriminals. You are also exposing yourself to malware. You cannot trust anything the pest shows you. Most of it is corrupted and leads to infections. Unless you want to fill your machine with more parasites, delete the adware now. Only then will the ads go away completely. Don’t hesitate. Find where the infection is hiding and remove it. The sooner, the better.

Your Mini Truetest also poses risk to your privacy. We already said that the pest spies on you to find your likes and preferences. But there is no guarantee that your browsing habits are the only thing it monitors. It may get its hands on your personally identifiable and financial credentials as well. And needless to say, everything the adware has access to, the hackers have access to. Don’t let that happen. You may fall victim to a financial scam or even an identity theft. Remove the adware from your machine. Speaking of your PC, it also suffers. Due to the parasite, it starts to underperform and crash often. Your browsers freeze occasionally. Your entire online experience is ruined and you cannot find anything you are looking for. Don’t put up with this. Use our removal guide at the end of this article and regain control over your browsing.

How did Your Mini Truetest enter? Usually, adware pieces rely on bundles to get in undetected. The bundling technique is very popular among crooks mostly because users tend to throw caution to the wind when installing programs. Don’t do that. Don’t give into carelessness. Instead, be extra attentive. Read carefully the Terms and Conditions and opt for the Custom settings in the Setup Wizard instead of the Basic ones. They allow you to see all additionally attached programs in the bundle which are about to be installed on board. Moreover, you can deselect them which you should. More often than not, they are malicious and if you needed them you would have downloaded them by now. Don’t let hackers dupe you. You know better!
