Information of Better Enhance
adware-computerLike many other adware programs, Better Enhance appears to be a useful application that helps enhance users’ browsing experience. However, it is in fact a nasty adware program that adds itself to users’ web browsers (such as Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, etc) as a BHO or extension. This adware program is created to generate revenue via ads that it shows to the computer users.
Usually, this adware comes along with free applications that you have downloaded from the Internet. To be more specific, it is bundled with other third-party applications (usually free) in advance, and when you download and install such applications, the adware can be downloaded and installed on your PC as well totally without your knowledge.

Once you click on these pop-up ads, links or banners, you will help generate advertising revenue for creators of this adware program.
