You gave the infection, behind Clksite.com, the green light of admission. You see, adware applications cannot access a PC unless the user permits it. They have to seek consent on their install. And, only if they receive it, can they continue with the process. So, they make sure to get it. But if the tool outright pops up to ask for your approval, you’d deny it. Wouldn’t you? After all, who would willingly agree to install a cyber threat? To avoid getting rejected, the adware resorts to slyness. It uses the old but gold invasive methods to seek your consent. It hides behind corrupted links, spam emails, freeware. It can also pose as a bogus update. Like, Java or Adobe Flash Player. There’s a myriad of ways it can turn to, to mask its presence, and slip by you. It’s up to you to notice it! Be thorough enough to catch it in the act. And, deny it entry. Understand this.
