What we will advise you, however, is to refrain from doing that because the information that pop-up ads provide you with is false. The reason why you are seeing pop-up ads from is because adware has managed to infiltrate your computer. serves as an advertising platform and many adware programs can take advantage of it. For this reason it is hard to tell whether it is just one or there are several adware infections on your computer that are causing pop-up ads to appear. Whatever the case, what you should do as soon as you notice the annoying pop-ups is to locate all existing infections on your PC and remove them at once.


How did I get infected with?

It is clear now that the appearance of pop-up ads is associated with adware that has found its way into your system. If you remember when you first started seeing the pop-up ads, it will be easier for you to determine the exact time the infection entered your PC. This will also help you find out how exactly you got infected with adware. Infections of this kind are known to be distributed in a few different ways as the most common one is considered to be software bundling. This distribution method involves silent installation of additional programs which takes place during the setup of dubious free applications. Such applications are found on questionable file sharing websites which you are strongly advised to avoid. Make sure you only acquire software from official sources if you want to avoid infecting your system with adware or other similar threats. It is also a good idea to stay away from random pop-up ads you see on the web because they are also used to spread adware and other infections.

Why are these ads dangerous? pop-up ads will inform you about possible threats that are said to be residing on your computer. You should remember that these threats are not real because the pop-ups are generated by adware not by a legitimate security application. For a program to be able to present you with information about potential dangers it has to run a full system scan before that, which is certainly something you will notice. Since no such thing has happened prior the appearance of pop-up ads, you should have no doubts about how trustworthy the information in them is. What is more, it is logical to assume that if the information given by pop-up ads is deceptive, you should not call the provided phone number because it is not likely to be reliable too. Calling that number might result in downloading or paying for a supposedly useful security tool as that is what the “technicians” on the other side of the line will try to convince you to do. The outcomes of doing that are several – you may acquire malware, may share your credit card details with cyber criminals, and may be charged a lot of money for the phone call despite the fact that it is said to be toll free. Hence, you should not call the given number under any circumstance. You should also not keep the adware associated with pop-up ads running on your computer because it will make your system vulnerable towards other attempts to infect your computer. Delete all infections on your PC now to prevent any issues in future.
