What is DataTransportation?
DataTransportation is a potentially unwanted program (PUP) and it is made to infect your PC and earn money. It will never care if this will harm your PC but this could make big fortune for it. So you could not expect that it just does its job and leave you alone. Instead, you will be interfered by it and you should focus on the effects it conducts on the PC.
DataTransportation will release thousands of ads with the intensive content. It could give you information about the things you are recently researching. That is because it could monitor your online behaviors and select the topics you are most interested in. As long as you check these things again, you will find that you could receive many popup Windows or banners with regard to the results which cannot be found on the search engine. But all of them are fake and DataTransportation redirected you to the place you don’t want, and this will give you many virus and malware.
Besides, not only your PC will suffer from its infection, but also yourself will be infected. DataTransportation could get your information which could be used to invade into your accounts and get the records here. So it could also be the key parts for the financial crimes and frauds. As a result, you should clear DataTransportation out as soon as possible. And please follow the removal guides here.
