Box Rock Ads - How to remove

Box Rock is one more adware developed by SuperWeb LLC. Similar to other releases by this company, the program promises to enhance your browsing and help you with shopping online. However, its main goal is related to promoting websites of its partners. Usually the program is installed to computers bundled to other tools that don’t clearly disclose about this additional download. It can be added to your browser together with free music players, video recorders, PDF creators, etc. To avoid that, you have to be more careful with the installation steps of your new downloads. Most of the users go through the installation steps “blindly” without paying any attention. They just keep hitting the Next or Accept button and agree with everything without even reading. This can lead to adding various potentially unwanted programs, like Box Rock. If you opt for a Custom or Advanced installation and check every step very carefully, you will be able to deselect certain optional downloads. Remember that you should never accept any unknown downloads, as most likely they will bring you problems.
