Because adware can install unnoticed and could be working in the background, some users can not even spot the infection. The ad-supported application will generate invasive pop-up commercials but because it is not a dangerous computer virus, it won’t directly harm your PC. It can, however, expose you to dangerous websites and you might end up with malware. If you wish to keep your system safeguarded, you will need to abolish SearchWebPortal.
