What is BloCKUTubeAd?
BloCKUTubeAd (can also be found as BloCKUTubeAd 3.2) is a potentially unwanted program, which is very similar to such apps as NewYtadblocker, YoutubeAdBlocker, BestADBlocker and many other ones. Beware that each of these programs can also be called as adwares because they can easily initiate annoying pop-up ads during each of your search sessions. In addition, you may also notice redirects to affiliate websites, slow downs and other problems when having BloCKUTubeAd adware on the system. So, no matter how actively it is promoted on the Internet (its developers have been promising to help people improve their browsing on the Internet by blocking commercial ads), you should stay away from this program as far as possible. That's because it may start causing its own ads during each of your browsing sessions on Google, Yahoo and Bing. After clicking these ads, you may be redirected to unknown websites without any warning about that. That's how its developers earn the money.. Finally, this program may start tracking your browsing on the Internet and may collect such things as your search terms, mostly visited websites, data that you enter when visiting your websites and so on. Of course, this is done without people's approval...
However, the most important thing about BloCKUTubeAd virus is that it can easily be installed on your computer behind your back. This can happen if you don't monitor installation of the freeware. If this program has already showed up on your computer or if you have noticed its process in your Task Manager, you should waste no time and scan it with updated anti-spyware. For that we recommend using one of these programs: SpyHunter (compatible with Windows), Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus (compatible with Mac OS X). Beware that it mostly spreads in a form of browser extension, which is compatible with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer web browsers. If you noticed annoying pop-up ads, browser's redirects and similar issues, your PC may be infected by BloCKUTubeAd virus. Please, stay away from this program!
