You are stuck with an aggressive, ad-generating invader. This parasite follows programming to flood you with countless ads. Whether you browse your favorite website or watch a video, the adware always finds a way to interrupt you. It displays banners, opens pop-ups, plays commercials.

How did I get infected with?

Adware forces the redirects on you. As for the parasite, it sneaks into your system through trickery. Freeware, fake updates, corrupted links, spam messages. There are myriads of malware distribution methods. You can never know where a parasite might strike from. The tricks, however, rely on your negligence. The thing about adware is that this type of malware needs you, the user, to approve its installation. No permission, no admission. The parasites are bound to seek your approval. And here’s the catch. Having to ask is not the same as having to do so outright. The adware hides in the fine print. It infects your computer when you “forget” to deselect it. Do not make that mistake! No anti-virus app can protect you if you though caution to the wind. Only your actions can keep your PC free of infections. So, don’t be lazy! Choose caution over carelessness! Don’t visit questionable websites. Download software and updates from reliable sources only. And forget about the “Next-Next-Finish” setup strategy. When available, use the advanced custom setup option. Make sure you know what you approve on your computer. Go through the terms and conditions before you agree to them. If you can’t read the whole document, scan it with an online EULA analyzer. Even a little extra attention can spare you an avalanche of problems. Opt out of the installation if you notice anything suspicious!

Why is this dangerous?

The redirects are just the beginning of an ad invasion. There is a parasite on your computer. An adware invader bombards you with countless ads. This parasite is a complete and utter menace. It uses every opportunity to interrupt you with “Ads by” The parasite inserts banners on every website you visit. It pauses your videos for commercial breaks. It even turns random text into hyperlinks. And as if that’s not annoying enough, but it loads questionable websites in new tabs. Do you feel comfortable knowing that any website out there may pop up on your screen? Do not underestimate the situation. You are dealing with a parasite! This menace has no filters nor security mechanisms, much less parental control. The adware is likely to displays obscene and vulgar content, as well as deceptive and misleading ads. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg! You can notice the full extent of the problem only if you examine the ads closely. Everything “Powered by” is targeted at you. They are based on your online habits. That’s right! The adware spies on you. It studies your every online activity. The Incognito mode cannot hide you. The parasite knows everything! And when it deems it has enough data, it sells it to third parties. Do you think that ends well? Some pieces of data, your search queries, for example, may leak personal and financial details. Do not risk it! Take immediate action against the adware. Delete this menace ASAP!
