What is Newzio 1.4?

Newzio 1.4, similarly to Newzio, is an adware-type program that may start showing you annoying pop-up ads during your searches. They may be filled with information about the latest discounts and coupons, 'inform' you about missing updates or simply claim that you should speed up your PC by downloading unspecified program. Please, ignore such ads if you want to avoid the appearance of other adwares on your computer. In reality, the most of Newzio 1.4 pop-up ads are misleading and have nothing to do with real discounts or updates. If you think that you need to update something, you should go straight to program's official website and download what you need to. In addition, make sure you don't click on 'Ads by Newzio 1.4' and similar pop-up notifications that announce about the latest discounts and coupons. In reality, such ads are showed for the only thing – trying to redirect people to affiliate websites. You can never be sure that website that you were redirected to is safe, so please try to avoid these notifications. By the way, after installing this potentially unwanted program on your computer, you may notice that its ads are very interesting. That's because this application is capable of tracking people's search sessions. Newzio 1.4 may be set to record your search queries, data that you enter on each of the web site, your email address, PC's IP address, location and similar information. No matter that it sounds like a harmless activity, you should always protect such information.

How can Newzio 1.4 hijack my computer?

Just like many other adwares and browser hijackers, this program is mostly spread in a bundle with freeware and shareware. If you want to avoid it, you should be very careful when installing free programs on your computer. Here are several things that you should remember when trying to avoid Newzio 1.4 virus. First of all, make sure you make a small research about every program that you want to install on your computer. Just google its name and look what other people say about it. In addition, check end user's license agreement, privacy policy and similar sources. If your research didn't reveal anything questionable, then start installation of your freeware. Make sure you select Custom or Advanced installation option in order to see what optional components are trying to get inside your PC. If you find any mentions about Newzio 1.4, then stop installation of this program. We also recommend preventing installation of other plugins, add-ons, toolbars and extensions because you can never know what they may be used for. If you have already started suffering from annoying ads, redirects, slow downs and similar inconveniences, you shouldn't waste your time. Please, make sure you remove this potentially unwanted program from your computer as soon as possible. Otherwise, you may run into more serious problems one day.
