What is process SAcc.exe? is SAcc a virus?


My web browser has become very slow lately, I get more popup windows then previously and I looked at the list of running tasks and found a task 'SAcc.exe'. What is that? Is SAcc a virus?


SAcc means 'Surf Accuracy'. It is an advertising program developed and distributed by a company of the same name - Surf Accuracy. SAcc.exe monitors your browsing habits and reports results back to the company's server. If you visit a certain web page, SAcc.exe may pop up a window with a web site that matches your visited site (only that it usually is a competitor's site - this can be funny for a while but gets old then.) This program is a privacy risk and should be uninstalled immediately.

It is my finding that this process - which you can kill easily in the task manager - significantly slows down your network performance. The files can be found in folder C:\Program Files\SurfAccuracy and it even offers an uninstall in the control panel.
