What is Adsandcomputer.com ads?

Adsandcomputer.com ads can bring you to malicious websites and expose you to phishing messages

Adsandcomputer.comAdsandcomputer.com is a fake website created by scammers

Adsandcomputer.com ads may show up unexpectedly on your Windows/Mac machine or a mobile device whenever you are doing something unrelated, for example, browsing your favorite social media, watching a YouTube video, or aren't even using the web browser at all. The activity manifests as a pop-up window shown at the top or bottom-right of the screen on a desktop computer or as a notification on a phone or tablet.

The contents of these Adsandcomputer.com ads pop-ups are another thing that often surprises users – they may show inappropriate images or links, expose users to phishing messages, advertise potentially unwanted programs, or engage in fake giveaways/get-rich-quick schemes.[1] Due to the dubious nature of these messages, users may end up on malicious websites, where they could be tricked into paying money for bogus services, downloading malware, or subscribing to spam messages.

While it may seem like a sign of a virus infection, it is not the case here, as the intrusive activity is related to the push notification feature, which is present in Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, MS Edge, or any other modern web browser. In order to get rid of it, browser settings need to be accessed, and access to Adsandcomputer.com is denied. It is important to note that, while the push notification issue is not a result of a computer infection, it is worth checking it for adware.

How to recognize push notification scam messages

One of the most important aspects of online scams relates to how unexpected they are – users do not visit malicious and misleading content intentionally. Nonetheless, some websites, such as peer-to-peer networks, gambling, illegal video streaming, and similar dubious ones, are much more likely to include fake links and automatic scripts[2] that redirect users to dangerous places online.

Once the redirect occurs, users are quickly rerouted through several URLs until they reach the destination website, which typically results in them not realizing what has happened. Adsandcomputer.com is a scam website which means that it attempts to show fake messages and images in order to convince people to do what they are told, and in this case, it is to click the “Allow” button within the push notification prompt.

To make the request reasonable, crooks create messages relying on social engineering.[3] Requests such as confirmation of age have been encountered by most users before, so scammers attempt to abuse that. These are a few examples that could be used to trick you:

  • Your file is ready to download. Press Allow to continue
  • Click Allow to confirm you are not a robot
  • Just one more step! “Allow” to continue
  • If you are 18+, click Allow
  • Click Allow to win a prize and get it in our shop!

Adsandcomputer.com scamAge confirmation is used as a reason to make users click the "Allow" button within the notification prompt

As evident, none of these messages is genuine and only attempt to mimic legitimate requests. Unfortunately, some users might not pay close attention to this and click the “Allow” button, which would immediately allow the website to push notifications at any time, as long as the browser is either idling or being used.

Luckily, it is not that difficult to get rid of these annoying push notifications as long as you know what to do. Please follow the instructions below for that.

How to get rid of unwanted push notifications from Adsandcomputer.com?

If you have enabled push notifications from a suspicious website, you can undo this decision easily. Not many people are aware, however, that they need to access browser settings to get rid of the annoying activity once and for all. If you are one of such people, please proceed with the instructions below by selecting the appropriate guide for your browser:

You can check the list of the “Allowed” entries and remove anything you don't recognize, especially when it comes to suspicious URLs like Lpnotworld.com or Cleancaptcha.top.

Adware removal explained

As we mentioned at the beginning, the push notification situation is not a direct outcome of some type of infection. This is why a full system scan with anti-malware does not yield any result for so many people surfing from this problem. Nonetheless, it is incredibly important to make sure that there's actually no malware or adware running in the background, despite successfully eliminating the push notifications.

The main reason to check the system thoroughly is that some people who end up on websites like Adsandcomputer.com or similar dangerous websites are more likely to be infected without realizing it. Adware and other potentially unwanted software can initiate intrusive ads and redirect users to malicious websites automatically whenever they browse the web.

Therefore, we recommend performing a full system scan with powerful anti-malware software, such as SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner or Malwarebytes. If you would rather perform adware removal manually, please check the guidelines below. After virus elimination, we also advise running a scan with the ReimageIntego repair and maintenance tool, which can remove various browser trackers, fix virus damage, and secure your privacy.

How to prevent from getting adware

Choose a proper web browser and improve your safety with a VPN tool

Online spying has got momentum in recent years and people are getting more and more interested in how to protect their privacy online. One of the basic means to add a layer of security – choose the most private and secure web browser. Although web browsers can't grant full privacy protection and security, some of them are much better at sandboxing, HTTPS upgrading, active content blocking, tracking blocking, phishing protection, and similar privacy-oriented features. However, if you want true anonymity, we suggest you employ a powerful Private Internet Access VPN – it can encrypt all the traffic that comes and goes out of your computer, preventing tracking completely.

 

Lost your files? Use data recovery software

While some files located on any computer are replaceable or useless, others can be extremely valuable. Family photos, work documents, school projects – these are types of files that we don't want to lose. Unfortunately, there are many ways how unexpected data loss can occur: power cuts, Blue Screen of Death errors, hardware failures, crypto-malware attack, or even accidental deletion.

To ensure that all the files remain intact, you should prepare regular data backups. You can choose cloud-based or physical copies you could restore from later in case of a disaster. If your backups were lost as well or you never bothered to prepare any, Data Recovery Pro can be your only hope to retrieve your invaluable files.
