PUP.Crossfire.SA is the detection of adware program that bundles with other application to distribute itself. The unwanted program is bundled with other software and then users may install it unconsciously. It changes system settings so that it could load automatically when windows start up. At the very beginning, users can not notice any infection symptom. PUP.Crossfire.SA includes minimal command to initiate itself on the affected PC. When installed, the adware starts as a plug-in to most hijacked Internet browsers. It can monitor what users do on the internet and redirect search engine to misleading websites. Meanwhile, various pop-up may display to interrupt the web browsing. PUP.Crossfire.SA could make money from click fraud when users view or click on the misleading advertisements.

Every time the web browser is redirected or the victim clicks on the ads the computer can get infected by other adware or browser hijacker virus, so you need to remove PUP.Crossfire.SA as soon as possible. Generally speaking, there are two ways.

Method one: remove PUP.Crossfire.SA manually
Step1. Stop the malicious process from running via task manager
Step2. Locate related files and plug-in, and then remove them completely
Step3. Run registry editor and delete associated registry entries

Method two: remove PUP.Crossfire.SA by a virus removal program
Using a virus removal program is considered as an automatic way. You need to launch a scan, and then let the software find out the virus and then remove them instantly. The scan process may take more than 1 hour but you do not have to keep an eye on the computer. Are you looking for such an effective PUP.Crossfire.SA removal tool? If you have an antivirus program, you could try to enter Safe Mode with Networking, update the database and then run a scan.

At last, I recommend Spyware Cease, a professional antispyware program, to users who still can not remove the adware. Spyware Cease is found to be able to detect latest infection like PUP.Crossfire.SA more effectively than common antivirus software
