Adware is what injects your browsers with a tremendous amount of pop-ups. It messes with your browser settings and constantly redirects you. It also exposes you to more infections, slows down the PC speed and jeopardizes your privacy. Why are we speaking of adware-type programs? Because your computer has been infected with one. There’s a sneaky parasite on your PC which causes the nasty pop-up ads. It’s quietly wreaking havoc as we speak. Hence, it has to go. The more time this pest spends on board, the more troublesome your situation becomes. Don’t take any chances with adware as it gets out of hand very fast. How does the parasite work? As mentioned, it goes after your browsers. It adds a malicious extension to all of them. This way, your browsers get injected with the endless pop-up ads. You’ve seen the pop-ups already, haven’t you? Such an overwhelming pile of commercials couldn’t remain unnoticed. We’re talking pop-ups, pop-unders, interstitials, banners, video ads, etc. That is what adware does – it generates advertisements. All kinds of advertisements. All the time. As you could imagine, surfing the Web is definitely no longer an easy task. You’re now bombarded with stubborn commercials on a daily basis. No matter which website you attempt to visit, the pop-ups will be there waiting for you. One important piece of information is that these commercials are sponsored. That means the adware’s developers gain profit out of every single ad you see on your PC screen. It also means you can’t trust any of these advertisements. As long as hackers keep on gaining money, they will keep on displaying unreliable and possibly corrupted ads. The virus doesn’t discriminate between safe and harmful links. Both types help hackers gain revenue. Clicking the wrong commercial would bring upon you further damage, though. Some of the pop-up ads lead straight to dangerous websites full of malware. Before you know it, you might compromise your already infected PC much further. The parasite redirects you to which is yet another unsafe website. Such questionable domains are often used by hackers to spread spam and parasites online. Hence, isn’t a virus. It’s a dangerous advertising platform you must stay away from. Restrain yourself from clicking any seemingly attractive commercial generated by the virus. It’s not a risk worth taking.


How did I get infected with?

No, you didn’t download the adware voluntarily. Remember, this is a PC virus we’re talking about. Infections are known to be exceptionally sneaky and secretive. That means you end up compromising your machine without even knowing it. For example, the virus might have landed on board via some spam message/email. Other popular techniques involve unverified websites, illegitimate torrents and third-party ads. However, the most commonly used method is called freeware bundling. Many people download such program packages practically every day. Keep in mind that bundles pose a threat to your safety, though. All kinds of infections might be attached to the harmless programs. Therefore, rushing the installation might result in infecting your device with various parasites. Opt for the Advanced or Custom option in the Setup Wizard instead of the Basic one. Also, check out the Terms and Conditions or EULA. You must be aware what terms and conditions you accept. Don’t be careless and make sure you pay attention online.

Why are these ads dangerous?

To begin with, the pop-up ads are irritating. These web links come in various shapes and flood your PC screen. At the least, you will waste your time dealing with obnoxious commercials. However, keep in mind that they are also very dangerous. As we mentioned, these advertisements are sponsored and tailored. Their one goal is to generate web traffic to some particular pages. Ultimately, crooks gain effortless profit online. Hackers’ profit comes solely at your expense so make no mistake. Instead of becoming their sponsor, delete the parasite. Since the moment your PC gets compromised, this nuisance starts collecting browsing-related information. That includes IP addresses, browsing history, passwords, usernames. All your sensitive data gets sent into the hands of greedy, dishonest cyber criminals. They would probably sell your information for marketing purposes. In short, adware’s presence threatens both your safety and privacy. To delete this intruder manually, please follow our detailed removal guide. You will find it down below.
