Bonanza image

Bonanza is a legitimate service, operating similarly to eBay. Users have to register and create an account. Then, they can proceed with selling their items on the website. However, if you noticed that your browser is constantly spammed with advertisements from this retailer, it is highly likely that your computer is affected by adware[1] (ad-supported software). 

Name Bonanza
Type Adware/Potentially Unwanted Program
Danger Level Low
Browsers affected Internet Explorer, MS Edge, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Opera, etc.
Symptoms Excessive advertisements and redirects, altered search results, slowdown of browser, etc.
Distribution Bundling, suspicious sites
Elimination Download and install Reimage Reimage Cleaner Intego. Alternatively, you can also delete it manually (instructions below)

As soon as Bonanza virus enters the computer, it starts required modifications. In most of the cases, it drops its browser add-on on Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Safari or other browser and then starts displaying ads that typically report about discounts, coupons, deals and other offers.

Even if Bonanza ads may look very convincing and legitimate, they can also cause havoc on your PC. Adware is known to display intrusive advertisements that disturb users' browsing sessions regularly. Sometimes, ads and pop-ups might cover the content of legitimate websites that typically do not advertise anything on their sites. Additionally, some words might be turned into hyperlinks.

The adverts are created to boost traffic to affiliated websites. This way, pay-per-click or pay-per-purchase revenue is generated. However, users do not get anything in return and have to deal with ads bombarding their browsers. To get rid of unwanted ads, you have to remove Bonanza from your system permanently. To do that quickly, we suggest downloading Reimage Reimage Cleaner Intego.

Bonanza pop-up

Sometimes, Bonanza might cause redirects to sponsored sites. However, developers are not responsible for the content that victims might be exposed to due to rerouting. Thus, users might end up on phishing, fake software or even malware-ridden websites. If you got redirected, never click on the content shown and close down your browser immediately.

Offers might tempt some users, and they may try to register on the official website. However, by creating the account and accepting terms of service, expose your details. Its Privacy Policy states:

Bonanza collects information from you when you register and conduct certain activities on the Site. We collect your full name, valid telephone number, contact/billing information, email address, and shipping address.

All this data is collected and shared with third-party partners who handle all the billing information. Please reconsider providing your banking details to unknown sources, as this data might end up in crooks' hands. Such information might be used for illegal purposes, such as identity theft or stolen money from your bank account.

As it is typical to adware, Bonanza collects a variety of non-personally identifiable information as well. The received data includes, but is not limited to:

  • IP address;
  • ISP
  • Browser used
  • Search queries
  • Sites visited
  • Cookie information[2]
  • Etc

If you want to keep your search entries private, you should restrain yourself from registering to this service. If adware is affecting your PC, however, this information is already monitored, and your browsing habits are highly controlled, based on the sites you visit and links you click. Thus, if you value your virtual safety, proceed with Bonanza removal. You can find full instructions in the third section of this article.

Bonanza adsBonanza is a legitimate service. However, adware present in victim's PC might cause an excessive amount of ads.

You can avoid adware infiltration if you install freeware correctly

Adware is mostly spread in a bundle with freeware and shareware. That is why it is always recommended installing such programs as PDF creators, media players and similar software with an extreme carefulness. Whatever you do – do not rush and do not click “Next” button without looking.

In most of the cases, you need to choose “Custom” or “Advanced” installation method, and you will get the opportunity to see which components are hiding inside. Also, you should get rid of all optional applications that may be offered to you in a bundle (add-ons, toolbars, system optimizers, search engines and similar useless software). Despite developers advising to use “Default/Recommended” settings, you should never opt for these, because you will not be able to untick additional components.

Bonanza PUP

Bonanza ads can be eliminated in just a few minutes

Adware can be incredibly frustrating to deal with because, over the time, the number of ads, pop-ups, and redirects increases. Security experts[3] warn that keeping Bonanza virus on the system might lead to additional PUP installation and other issues. Additionally, users might get tricked into installing fake updates or bogus programs they do not need (note that these applications are not free; hence, you risk losing your money too).

Therefore, do not delay Bonanza removal. You can either do it manually or automatically – we have both methods covered. If you are a computer-savvy individual, you can try following our illustrated instructions below this post. However, we must warn you that incorrect execution might lead to system file damage or reinfection of adware. Therefore, make sure you remove Bonanza by performing every step in exact order.

If you cannot think about yourself as an experienced user, we highly suggest installing reputable security software and running a full system scan. The process is fast and will only require you to follow on-screen instructions to uninstall Bonanza. Soon after that, you can enjoy adware-free and PUP-free browser again!

Access your website securely from any location

When you work on the domain, site, blog, or different project that requires constant management, content creation, or coding, you may need to connect to the server and content management service more often. It is a hassle when your website is protected from suspicious connections and unauthorized IP addresses.

The best solution for creating a tighter network could be a dedicated/fixed IP address. If you make your IP address static and set to your device, you can connect to the CMS from any location and do not create any additional issues for server or network manager that need to monitor connections and activities. This is how you bypass some of the authentications factors and can remotely use your banking accounts without triggering suspicious with each login. 

VPN software providers like Private Internet Access can help you with such settings and offer the option to control the online reputation and manage projects easily from any part of the world. It is better to clock the access to your website from different IP addresses. So you can keep the project safe and secure when you have the dedicated IP address VPN and protected access to the content management system.

Backup files for the later use, in case of the malware attack

Computer users can suffer various losses due to cyber infections or their own faulty doings. Software issues created by malware or direct data loss due to encryption can lead to problems with your device or permanent damage. When you have proper up-to-date backups, you can easily recover after such an incident and get back to work.

It is crucial to create updates to your backups after any changes on the device, so you can get back to the point you were working on when malware changes anything or issues with the device causes data or performance corruption. Rely on such behavior and make file backup your daily or weekly habit.

When you have the previous version of every important document or project you can avoid frustration and breakdowns. It comes in handy when malware occurs out of nowhere. Use Data Recovery Pro for the system restoring purpose.
