How did I get infected with?

Behind the advertising is malware or adware that hides inside your computer. When you’re not looking, this threat lurks in the shadows and infects your computer. But don’t think about cyber-attacks. The adware doesn’t pick on specific victims. It makes use of mass distribution techniques including bundles, bogus updates, broken links, and software that has been illegally obtained. Don’t get caught in its traps! Adware preys on your gullibility. On the other side, your thoroughness stops its ruses from working. Don’t be lazy; even a little more effort goes a long way. Always make the time to contribute something! Download updates and software only from reliable (ideally official) sources. Do not omit any installation steps either. Forget the installation method of “Next-Next-Finish.” Use the advanced/custom setup wizard when it’s available.

Why is this dangerous?

The adverts on are a curse. Every page you visit is covered by them; they appear out of nowhere and halt your videos. Your user experience is ruined by them everyday flooding your browser. But if you look at them closely, you’ll see that they’re more than just a bother. The advertisements are a sign of worse disaster. You are being watched! The “Powered by” advertising are based on the websites you visit, the links you click, and the videos you watch rather than being chosen at random. The parasite works in this manner. It analyzes your browsing patterns and uses the data gathered to target you. Do you believe that will turn out well? Do you think the parasite merely spies on you for commercial gain?
