How did I get infected with?

Press Gamer is required to ask for (and receive) your permission before it installs itself on your computer. That means that the tool has to inquire whether you agree to allow it in or not, and unless you answer affirmatively, it cannot enter. So, at some point, an adware application asked you if you want to install it and, evidently, you said ‘Yes.’ If you hadn’t, you wouldn’t be in your current situation, plagued by so many threats, headaches, and altogether unpleasantness. But how do you suppose do you agree to install a tool, and such a dangerous one at that, and not even realize it? Well, it’s pretty straightforward. Such tools go to great lengths to make sure of that. They don’t just openly pop up and ask permission for their installment. Oh, no! If they did that, odds are, you’ll deny them. So, to increase their chances of successful infiltration, they employ cunning, trickery, and finesse and, if you’re careless enough, manage to sneak in undetected. More often than not, adware succeeds in its invasive attempts with the help of freeware, spam email attachments, corrupted links, or sites. Also, it can pose as a fake update, like Java or Adobe Flash Player. If you wish to keep such infections away from your system, try to be more vigilant! Don’t rush and don’t give into distraction and naivety. They hardly ever lead to anything positive. Do yourself a favor, and be more cautious and always do your due diligence. Remember that infections prey on carelessness, and don’t provide it.

Why are these ads dangerous?

Once the Press Gamer application settles into your system, issues follow close by. You’ll suddenly find yourself positively plagued by pop-up advertisements as they’ll appear incessantly! Each time you try to go online and surf the web, you’ll be interrupted by an entire waterfall of them. And, make no mistake! They’ll never cease. Not until you take action and remove the adware tool from your PC altogether. The more you delay its deletion, the worse your predicament will get. Yes, at first it will seem like the ads will your biggest worry. But they’re just the tip of the iceberg. And, they’re more of a nuisance than anything else. Plus, they’re severely out-shined by the malware risk and the security threat, which Press Gamer will place upon you. Let’s elaborate. Your grievances commence shortly after infiltration with a full-on bombardment of pop-up ads each and every time you browse the web. That continuous intrusion doesn’t go unnoticed for long. Not long after the first ad pops up, you’ll begin to suffer from frequent system crashes, and your computer’s performance will slow down to a crawl. But that’s not all that the ads have to ‘offer.’ Another ‘perk’ of their constant popping up is the danger that you might accidentally agree to install more unwanted applications on your PC. That risk derives from their immense unreliability. The advertisements are bundled with various malicious programs, just waiting to slither into your system, and damage it further. And, every time you press a pop-up, by accident or choice, you let them! That’s because a click equals your consent to these tools’ installment. So, if you wish to keep such malware away from your computer, do NOT click on even a single ad! As for the security threat, it stems from the programming of such tools. Adware is designed to spy on you and steal data from the moment it enters your system. From the moment it invades your PC, it starts to keep track of your browsing and catalog your every move. After it deems it has collected enough information from you, it sends it to the third parties behind it. Once these people get their hands on it, they can use it as they so desire. Are you prepared to trust strangers with your personal and financial details? That’s the question you need to ask yourself upon the discovery of the adware. Do yourself a favor, and get rid of the PUP as soon as it throws the first ad “Powered by Press Gamer” your way. It’s truly for the best.
