What is WordExtra?

This adware program injects advertisements with its affiliate ad providers in order to serve a number of ad types including banner, inline text links and popups. These ads are aimed to promote the installation of additional questionable content including web browser toolbars, optimization utilities and other products, all so the publisher can generate pay-per-click revenue.

Once infected by this common symptoms include:
- Random web page text is turned into hyperlinks.
- Ads with red click here button will pop up when those links are hovered on.
- Other unwanted adware programs might get installed without the user's knowledge.
- Browser popups appear which recommend fake updates or other software.
- Web pages become extremely slow to download due to the multiple ads.

The program runs the file temp.dat which is actually an executable PE file but 'masked' as a temporary file.


The primary executable is named temp.dat. A majority of users end up uninstalling this less than a week of it being installed. The setup package generally installs about 3 files and is usually about 1.63 MB (1,714,147 bytes).
  • Typically distributed through a pay-per-install bundle
  • Displays unwanted advertisements
  • The experts agree, you should remove it!
WordExtra has been found to be bundled with 3rd party software. If you have not purposefully installed this, you should be safe uninstalling it.
