The pesky pop-up ads are caused by a virus. Yes, you should know that your computer is no longer infection-free. There is some good news, though. The virus you’re now stuck with is an adware-type PUP (potentially unwanted program). This is considered to be the least harmful and problematic type of virus out there. It’s also relatively easy to remove. However, the silver lining of your situation is pretty much ending here. Adware is perfectly capable of wreaking havoc so don’t let it mislead you. Honestly, why would you keep any infection on board? Ignoring the problem instead of solving it ASAP would be a terrible mistake and you know it. What is the solution to that? Get rid of the virus before it’s too late. All infections eventually get out of control so you have to be quick. Uninstall this nuisance the minute you encounter its unwanted presence. Now, how does the parasite work? It travels the Web in complete and utter silence. Once you download the virus, it immediately starts messing with your browser settings. This way all your browsers end up corrupted and modified. The parasite adds a malicious extension to your browsers. Obviously, your permission or authorization or consent of any kind is irrelevant. You might also come across random toolbars that are added behind your back. Unfortunately, now that the PC is infected, your browsing experience is up to hackers. Their creation takes control over your online activities. It also redirects you to and other equally unsafe pages. By doing so, the virus generates web traffic to these pages. Ultimately, hackers gain profit. Yes, this whole thing revolves solely around crooks’ illegitimate revenue. Money is in the bottom of this scheme and when money is involved, hackers don’t mess around. All the pop-up ads you now see are sponsored. That means you simply cannot afford to trust any of them. Otherwise, you may land on dangerous websites full of malware. Are you willing to infect your machine further? No? Then take measures. The pesky pop-ups are very stubborn, intrusive and annoying. They are also potentially harmful so make no mistake. Restrain yourself from clicking any seemingly harmless pop-ups. Coupons, discounts, product deals/offers – all of those are unreliable. The adware might even pose a threat for your privacy. It is known to be stealing browsing-related data. However, if you’re very unlucky, it may steal bank account data as well. Any online credentials and other private information could be stolen by the virus. Long story short, your private life online is no longer private.

How did I get infected with?

This pest was probably bundled with other programs. So-called freeware bundling is among the most commonly used methods to spread viruses. Many people tend to rush the installation and skip important steps. Sometimes they also skip precious opportunities to protect their computers. You have to deselect any malicious “bonus” attached to the bundle. To do so, you have to spot the parasite firstly. Our advice is to opt for the Custom/Advanced option beforehand. Take your time in the installation and don’t be neglectful. One single moment of haste on the Web could cause you quite a headache later on. Hence, watch out for potential infections. Check out the Terms and Conditions as well. This was never meant to be a fun activity. It will prevent malware infiltration, though. Last but not least, the virus might have entered your PC via a spam message. Spam email-attachments are unreliable too. Don’t overlook any suspicious program and make sure you protect your PC.

Why are these ads dangerous?

These commercials are brought to you by hackers. That sentence alone should be enough to make you take action. The only reason you’re now dealing with ads is because crooks aim for gaining revenue.
