removal by Jake Doevan - -   Also known as Adblockerr ads, Ads by Adblockerr | Type: Adware

What is Adblockerr?

As the title of the program implies, Adblockerr is an application intended to block advertisements and protect computers from infiltration of unwanted and dangerous programs. In the official website, it is stated that “adblockerr helps thousand of users daily protect their PC from malicious websitesmadware, online fraud, virus attacks, phasing websites and cookie tracking based advertisements. With it’s inovative sleek interface it’s simple as downloading & clicking go!” At the moment of writing, it supports Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox web browsers, excluding Microsoft Edge. Although you may get tempted to install this application believing that it will help you no longer see irritating advertisements during browsing, we want to warn you that Adblockerr by Desktop Bar is not very likely to fulfill its promises because it’s a genuine adware. Consequently, it may prompt your web browser to generate more ads, slow down PC’s performance, cause unwanted redirects, and may even spy on you. Beware of it since it’s ad-supported and may be related to doubtful third parties. That’s why any contact with the “Ads by Adblockerr”, “Adblockerr Ads” or similarly marked advertisements is considered as a risk to your cyber security.

Since clicking on the ads may result in Adblockerr redirects, keeping this adware installed may also lead to data leakage. It has been found that it installs cookies and gathers browsing-related data like, for instance, IP address, PC’s location, email address, search terms, websites visited, data entered while visiting them, and so on. Yes, we admit that none of the listed details could be identified as personal. However, third parties may still find ways to use it for unfair purposes. By the way, the relationship of Adblockerr and system slowdowns has been noticed. According to security experts, this adware may run several processes (adblockerr.exe) in the background and, therefore, diminish the performance of the overall system. So, if you want to prevent Adblockerr redirects from exposing you to unreliable websites, as well as stop irritating ads from appearing, you should remove this controversial application from the system without a delay. For this, our recommendation would be to use Reimage or another reputable anti-spyware.

How can Adblockerr hijack my computer?

Adblockerr is promoted via the official website. Therefore, although we DO NOT recommend, if you believe that it’s going to block ads and prevent infiltration of malicious software, you may install it right there. However, it may also exploit your PC’s vulnerabilities and infiltrate the system via other freewares and sharewares as a default component. Fortunately, you can easily prevent installing a selected freeware with ‘optional downloads’. For that, you just have to select Advanced or Custom installation option and remove all unfamiliar add-ons, plug-ins, toolbars, and extensions from the list. By the way, we want to warn you that not only suspicious third-party websites spread software packages. The main distributor of software bundles are such third-party download websites as Cnet, Softonic, Soft32, Download, and so on.
