How did I get infected with?

As mentioned, the real cyber problem behind the parade of pop-ups you’re seeing is some malicious adware-type parasite. How do those travel the Web? Well, unfortunately, there are way more plausible answers to that question than there should be. Hackers apply a huge variety of stealthy and secretive techniques in order to spread their harmful creations, which is why you have to be constantly on the alert for potential issues when browsing the Internet. Remember, your cyber security is not a concern of the crooks. It’s yours. Clicking almost any spam email-attachment or spam message or even some random third-party commercial you notice could easily corrupt your machine without you even realizing it. Also, downloading freeware bundles from questionable websites is a very risky thing to do because most programs offered by unverified pages include at least one intruder. Do you want to receive a Trojan horse as a bonus? In this particular scenario you got infected with adware but keep in mind that all kinds of infections imaginable use that very same distribution tactic. To prevent virus installation, always select the Advanced option in the Setup Wizard instead of the Basic one. You should also have the habit of checking the Terms and Conditions of the software you install so that you know exactly what you’re agreeing to.

Why are these ads dangerous?

The pop-up ads are extremely misleading and if you’re gullible and unlucky enough, they will cause you an immense trouble. The ads are generated through a malicious browser extension which works just fine with all the most popular browsers out there. Therefore, regardless of the fact you might prefer working with Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome or Internet Explorer or all three of them, you will be inevitably greeted by ads on every single web page you try to visit. The pop-up ads use a great range of tricks in their never-ending attempts to fool you. For example, you might see a random notification claiming that some of your programs are “out of date” and it’s in your “best interest” to quickly install their update version. That involves Flash Player, Java, some of your browsers, etc. Conveniently enough, the pop ups also provide you a web link to “help” you download said update and it goes without saying that clicking it will be a decision you will regret in the nearest future. Basically all that these ads bring to you should come in quotation marks because there isn’t even one real and authentic notification on your PC screen after the device has been infected. Same thing goes for the thousands product offers, discounts and deals you will get to see on the computer screen – they are all sponsored and are all unreliable. The ultimate purpose of the pop-up ads is to cause you trouble so stay away from ANY kind of message, notification, commercial or software update you notice. However, avoiding the links may be almost impossible because they are not only very intrusive but quite resourceful as well; the only way to make sure you’re absolutely done with these shenanigans is by deleting the virus that caused them in the first place. If you want to deal with the cyber parasite yourself, please follow the manual removal guide we have prepared for you down below.
