Your computer is no longer infection-free. The appearance of the website indicates the presence of adware. Somewhere in the corners of your OS, a parasite lurks and causes issues. Brace yourself! You are dealing with an aggressive ad-generating intruder. This parasite makes a mess out of your browser and throws you into a whirlwind of ads. It inserts banners on every web page you load. No ad-blocking tool can stop the ad invasion. The adware is a complete menace. Even web pages that are otherwise ad-free get heavy on coupons and discounts. Pop-ups appear out of the blue. Commercials pause your videos. Questionable websites load in new tabs and windows. That’s the nature of the adware. It uses every opportunity to interrupt you. Click nothing, though. Everything “Powered by” is unreliable. The adware behind these pop-ups has no filters. Its sole purpose of existence is to generate ad revenue. Anyone willing to spend some money can use the parasite. Hundreds of crooks are more than happy to open their wallets. The spread misleading ads, as well as redirect traffic to dangerous websites. Do not test your luck. Your best course of action is the immediate removal of the adware!


How did I get infected with?

Freeware, fake updates, spam messages, malvertising, pirated software. There are myriads of adware distribution methods. And the parasite behind the pop-ups uses all known tricks. This sneaky trickster hides in the shadows and attacks when you least expect it. It preys on your carelessness. Do not make its task easier! Do not throw caution to the wind. No anti-virus app can protect you if you do. Only your vigilance and keep your PC secure and free of viruses. Even a little extra attention can spare you an avalanche of problems. So, choose caution over carelessness. Always take the time to do your due diligence. Don’t visit questionable web pages. Download software from reputable sources only. And don’t skip installation steps. If you rush, you might overlook something. More often than not, the programs we download off the Web come bundled with bonus software. If you don’t pay attention to the red flags, you might fail to deselect malicious bonuses. Do not rely on luck. Forget about the “Next-Next-Finish” setup strategy. If available, use the advanced/custom setup option. Under it, you will be able to deselect all unwanted bonus apps. Make sure you know what you install. Read the terms and conditions before you agree to them. If you cannot go through the whole document, scan it with an online EULA analyzer. Opt out of the installation if you notice anything suspicious!

The parasite threatens to steal sensitive information and to use it against you. Confused? Let’s explain. The adware spies on you from day one. It studies your browsing habits and uses the collected data for customized advertising. The adware knows your every online step. Which websites you visit, what links you follow, what videos you watch. The Incognito mode cannot hide you. The adware knows everything! And if you are not careful, it might record personal and financial details. Do you think that ends well? Anyone willing to spend some money can use the adware and its resources. Dozens and dozens of crooks take advantage of this parasite. They customize their ads and flood your browser with irresistible offers. The crooks show you what you want to see, but when you click, bad things happen. Don’t put yourself through this. As soon as the “Ads by” pop-ups appear, take action.
