Category Description: Program that delivers advertisements on your PC.

Note that many websites have their own advertising, unrelated to adware.

Adware is any software application in which advertising is displayed while the program is running. The authors of these applications include additional code that delivers the ads, which can be viewed through pop-up windows or through a bar that appears on a computer screen and sometimes through text links or in integrated search results. Adware may or may not track personal information. It may also gather information anonymously or in aggregate only. Users should check the EULA and Privacy policy to ensure if the adware on their machines conforms to their standards.
Official Description: RapidBlaster is a task run on Windows startup. When an internet connection is present it periodically connects to its servers to fetch advertising.

Manual Removal: Use the Control Panel's Add/Remove Programs entry for 'RapidBlaster' if it is there, then go to the Downloaded Program Files folder inside the Windows folder, right-click the 'AInst' item and 'Remove' it.

(If the AInst control is not removed, any web page will be able to reinstall Rapid Blaster. It is this installer control that is detected by the script at this page.)

After restarting, you can clear up by deleting the 'RapidBlaster' folder inside Program Files, and deleting the key 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\RapidBlaster' from the registry (Start->Run->regedit).
