removal by Julie Splinters - -   Also known as Digi Docket ads, Digi Docket adware, Digi Docket virus, Digi Docket | Type: Adware

What is Digi Docket?

Digi Docket has been categorized as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) that may get inside your computer without being noticed and try to trick you in various ways. In most of the cases, people install it bundled with various freewares and sharewares as 'additional component'. The only way to stay away from such and similar programs is to be more attentive when installing freewares, such as various download managers or media players on your computer. Before installing it, you have to make sure that it is not filled with optional downloads and if it is, you have to deselect them before finishing the installation of a freeware. If you leave an add-on, plug-in, toolbar or extension set by default, you may start seeing 'Ads by Digi Docket', 'Digi Docket Deals', 'Bought by Digi Docket' and similarly marked popups that may start disrupting your web browsing activities. Even though those commercial advertisements seem to be very attractive, keep in mind that they may be used for promoting affiliate websites. By delivering those advertisements, this app earns the money for its developers. Every time when you click on Digi Docket ads, developers of this app generate pay-per-click revenue or reroute you to sponsored websites and in this way increase page rank. However, you can never be sure if those websites are safe to visit. If you want to stay away from Digi Docket redirects, you have to avoid clicking on its ads and delete this app from the system fully. You should also scan your computer with a reputable anti-spyware, such as Reimage in order to eliminate no only Digi Docket virus, but also cookies that it installs and which track you and your online activities. Do not keep such a dubious program on your computer under any circumstances and get rid of it as soon as possible.

How can Digi Docket hijack my computer?

Digi Docket is an adware and a potentially unwanted program (PUP). Of course, it has been categorized in this way not without a reason. That's because it is capable of infiltrating random computers silently and causing a serious havoc on all most popular web browsers, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer. This, so called, 'bundling' distribution method is getting increasingly popular due to the fact that it earns the money for freeware creators; whereas developers of unwanted programs get the possibility to spread their add-ons, plug-ins, toolbars and extensions widely in one pack with the most popular free software. However, since Digi Docket virus and similar adware-type programs may significantly slow down the system, cause redirects to questionable websites, display annoying ads and so on.To avoid these issues, you should always check what additional components your selected freeware carries. For that, you should select Advanced or Custom installation option and carefully monitor the entire process. If you spot a check box that promote unfamiliar browser add-ons, you should either deselect them, or if you are not allowed to do so, stop the installation process and find a more reliable freeware to download. In you have already noticed Digi Docket ads, it means that an adware has hijacked your PC and needs to be removed.
