Remove Redirect Pop-up

Suddenly took over your homepage and you cannot remove it.

The pop-ups are indeed quite a pest. These irritating commercials cover all websites you visit on a daily basis. Useless coupons/discounts, obnoxious product deals and offers, various ads in various shapes. That’s just the beginning of a long, long list of malicious traits. Why are you bombarded by advertisements? Well, it’s safe to assume you’re not going to like the answer to this question. Unfortunately, the commercials are caused by a PC virus. Some sneaky adware-type infection has managed to get to you. It’s also plausible that a potentially unwanted program (PUP) is to blame for the pop-ups. Yes, your computer is now compromised. But before you panic, keep in mind adware/PUPs are relatively easy to remove. You could have installed something much more virulent like a Trojan horse, for example. However, the virus currently harassing you is super tricky. Adware can’t cause harm directly which is why PC users tend to ignore it. You can see why ignoring a virus would be a bad move, can’t you? The more time this infection spends on board, the more dangerous it becomes. Don’t even for a minute underestimate the seriousness of the situation. This may not be the world’s most devastating virus but it’s still a virus. You have no reason whatsoever to ignore any parasite of any type. Hence, do the right thing and get rid of the intruder.

Unless you’re deliberately trying to install malware, you will avoid the pop-ups. Those commercials do seem attractive at first glance. You should know better than to trust hackers, though. The pop-ups are incredibly misleading and potentially harmful. Restrain yourself from clicking any of these deceiving advertisements. In addition to that, the virus constantly redirects you to unknown websites. This way the parasite generates web traffic and, ultimately, helps hackers gain profit. Why support crooks’ malicious business? You’re becoming their sponsor just by keeping the virus on your machine. Obviously, this infection has to be removed as soon as possible.


How did I get infected with?

At the end of the day, infections are still PC programs. That means you need to properly install a virus before it could get start wreaking havoc. You see exactly where this is going, don’t you? The parasite has managed to trick you into installing it. One of the most popular infiltration techniques is freeware/shareware bundling.

Many people choose the Basic option and rush the installation process. The problem is, skipping installation steps exposes you to online threats. Being cautious will save you much more time in the long run. Check out the bundled software thoroughly. Don’t hesitate to deselect whatever untrustworthy program you may come across. Also, keep in mind that spam email-attachments and messages are unreliable as well. Always watch our for malware and make sure you outwit hackers.

Why is this dangerous?

The pop-ups are also potentially corrupted which means you have to stay away from them. Hackers also collect your browsing-related data and adjust the ads. By using your own browsing history against you, crooks are trying to fool you. Therefore, don’t even think about clicking the nasty pop-up ads. The parasite’s browser extension is compatible with some immensely popular browsers. It takes down Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer in no time. You can no longer trust anything any of these browsers display. In addition, the adware may serve as a back door to more infections. It also slows down the PC speed considerably. As mentioned, your privacy is jeopardized too. Hackers have free access to your IP addresses, passwords, usernames, email addresses, etc. However, the virus might also steal some personally identifiable data.
