All in all, pop-up ads are a sign of trouble. These bizarre commercials are caused by an adware-type PC infection. No, they are certainly not harmless. Quite the opposite, actually. Apart from being absurdly useless, the pop-ups are also problematic and dangerous. The problem is, though, they don’t appear to be dangerous at first glance. They appear to be lovely. Coupons, discounts, numerous product deals, product offers, best prices, price comparisons, etc. – the commercials are diversified. The one trait these ads all share is the fact they are sponsored. Do you think a sponsored commercial could be trusted, though? How come? The virus you’re now stuck with is ad-supported; that means hackers get paid to display these pop-ups. Logically enough, crooks are only interested in gaining profit. They are willing to expose you to all kinds of corrupted, unreliable web links at the right price. What’s even worse is that hackers mislead you. These links get presented as attractive, useful and utterly safe pop-up ads. That means all the advertisements on your PC screen are equally dangerous. Clicking some malicious link that you mistook for a product commercial is a dangerous thing. You might accidentally end up on a harmful website filled with malware. Therefore, the pop-up ads will bring upon you nothing but harm. The question is, are you going to leave this parasite disturb or are you going to take action?

How did I get infected with?

The adware was probably bundled with other programs. This way you may install a whole bunch of parasites without even knowing it. In the future, take your time when dealing with bundles. Keep in mind that bundled freeware and shareware are the most preferred infiltration methods right now. They are just as effective as they are stealthy. Stay away from illegitimate pages and the illegitimate programs offered there. Also, opt for the Custom or Advanced option in the Setup Wizard. This may seem like a time-consuming thing to do but it will help you protect your device. Hackers may include a virus or a couple of viruses in the bundle. Therefore, it’s your responsibility to check it out thoroughly beforehand. Last but not least, many parasites get attached to spam messages and emails.

Why are these ads dangerous?

It’s compatible with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. That means all three of the most popular browsers (and probably your favorite ones) are now infected. The pop-up ads will be covering every single website you visit. Or, should we say, attempt to visit. It goes without saying what annoyance these useless commercials bring along. However, they also bring along threats. Don’t even think about trusting the pop-ups. Everything you currently see on the PC screen is potentially harmful. The virus also stubbornly redirects you to unknown, unsafe pages. This way its greedy developers gain even more revenue. As you can clearly see, your entire browsing experience is effectively demolished. Hesitate no more; you have to regain control over the PC before it’s too late.
