What is IneedSpeed?

IneedSpeed is an ad-supported browser extension that may deliver advertisements in the form of coupons, affiliate links, price-comparisons, display media and other links through a number of functions including those based on the the content of any web page the user is visiting, plug-ins, add-ons, or the web browser itself. Advertisements may be injected to overlay the page or inserted directly into the page content. This adware may alter the content of any web page accessed for the purpose of displaying advertisements.

IneedSpeed displays several types of advertising, including but not limited to:
- Sponsored links
- Video targeted ads (which are displayed when you view a video).
- Display advertisements, such as banner ads, popups and interstitial ads
- Offers to download and install other applications (software bundles)
- Coupons


During setup, the program registers itself to launch on boot through a Windows Schedule Task in order to automatically start-up (this is typically done to avoid any UAC prompts). It adds a Browser Helper Object (BHO) to Internet Explorer. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). Once installed, it will add an extension to both the Firefox and Chrome web browsers. The primary executable is named IneedSpeed.exe. A majority of users end up uninstalling this less than a week of it being installed. The setup package generally installs about 15 files and is usually about 4.27 MB (4,481,301 bytes).
  • Malware detected in the program
  • Starts automatically
  • Adds a toolbar to IE and an extension to Chrome and Firefox
  • Delivered through a thrid-party offer
  • Injects advertisements unassociated with the underlying web page
  • The experts agree, you should remove it!
