Are you attacked by a virus named Judging by the fact you’re sitting here reading this article, we could presume that this nasty piece of software is currently causing you trouble. is a malicious website that lures PC users to pay for a bogus tech support. Its sole purpose is to generate money for the hackers who created the parasite, so no matter what serious infections it claims that you have on your device, once you see the “” sign, you know this just is an attempt for a scam. This phishing website attacks your computer with a whole bunch of intrusive pop-ups and fake warnings aiming to scare you enough that you’d be willing to pay for the hackers’ malicious “services”. Needless to say crooks don’t care for your cyber security so they have no intention to actually fix any issue on your device. Apart from that, the parasite generates various commercials (unwanted and unsafe), redirects your search queries (so you can no  longer find anything you search for), replaces your homepage with its own (without any permission) and creates an overall confusion on the entire PC system. Long story short, you don’t need in your life.


How did I get infected with?

If you see this malicious website appear on your PC screen, that most likely means you’ve been effectively infected with adware. The problem with adware parasites is that they manage to sneak in using underhanded and incredibly sneaky techniques so there’s a great possibility you don’t even realize that your computer is being infected. In order to prevent virus infiltration you have to be extremely cautious every single time you download programs off of the Internet, especially if you choose to trust some unverified pages. Our advice is to avoid such websites and go for a legitimate page instead. Otherwise you might expose your own device to great dangers and install malware involuntarily. Hackers could be quite inventive and original when it comes to spreading infections so you should always keep an eye out for potential threats. When installing programs (and especially when they come in freeware bundles), choose the advanced option. That way you remain in control of the installation process so no intruder could sneak in behind your back. You should also make sure to avoid all kinds of third-party web links, corrupted commercials, spam emails/messages and everything else that looks suspicious. Remember, you can never be too careful while surfing the Web.

Why are these ads dangerous? could be dangerous if you allow it. The parasite is compatible with the most commonly used browsers out there and it instantly modifies the settings of Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. Then it injects all your browsers with fake pop-ups that claim your PC is compromised. To be fair, it really is but the danger here is itself, not some other bogus “virus”. The key is not to panic, not to believe anything hackers want you to believe and remain calm till you remove the parasite. The most important thing, however, is NOT to give your money to cyber crooks as they will NOT give you anything in return except for more infections. The parasite serves as a back door to other PC viruses and all kinds of malicious programs could easily infiltrate your machine thus creating even more problems. In addition, this thing steals your browsing-related data (including passwords, usernames, email addresses, pages visited, search queries, etc.) which its creators could use to gain money. There’s also a possibility that the parasite gets access to your email contacts so it could kindly send parasites to all your friends. To sum up, the sooner you get rid of, the better. Of course, it’s possible to delete the intruder automatically but you could successfully uninstall the parasite yourself by following the removal guide down below.
