This infection generates a great variety of pop-ups, pop-unders, banners, interestitials, etc. What they all have in common is the fact you must stay away from them. Being sponsored, these advertisements might lead you straight to malware. You could never trust a sponsored link and you know it. Hence, restrain yourself from clicking these pop-ups. Thanks to its browser add-on, the irritating Netutils commercials flood your PC screen. As a result, surfing the Web in general becomes problematic. Not only will you waste time dealing with pop-ups but you might also install more infections. Hackers were never really interested in helping you save time and/or money online. They have one goal which has nothing to do with your shopping experience. On the other hand, it has quite a lot to do with money. Adware displays sponsored ads and uses the pay-per-click mechanism to help hackers gain revenue. The problem is, this jeopardizes your safety. Some of the pop-ups you now see are corrupted and very dangerous. There’s no telling which commercial is safe and which one isn’t. Thus, you might want to stay away from all of them. One wrong move could bring upon you serious damage so make no mistake.
