removal by Ugnius Kiguolis - - | Type: Adware

Chairgaubsy.com is another adware program that lures people into subscribing to direct notifications 

Chairgaubsy.com
Chairgaubsy.com adware is the program that uses social engineering techniques to trick users into subscribing to push notifications.

Chairgaubsy.com is a potentially unwanted program that delivers notifications directly to your desktop even when your browser is closed. This website displays nothing besides the video that cannot be started and the suggestion to press allow and confirm notifications. Unfortunately, if you interact with the suggested window, notifications from this or any related website start appearing constantly. You don't need to press Allow or Agree, any interaction with the pop-up window is automatically confirming this additional content. Then notifications go from your browser to desktop directly and even when your browser is closed, you receive constant notifications on the screen. This all behavior is caused by the adware that infiltrated your device before and to get rid of this activity, you need to eliminate that program.

Name Chairgaubsy.com
Type  Adware
Category  Potentially unwanted program
Symptoms Delivers commercial content, push notifications, causes redirects
Main danger Exposes to possibly malicious content
Distribution Deceptive websites, ads, insecure freeware installations 
Elimination Use Reimage for system cleaning and Chairgaubsy.com removal

When it comes to Chairgaubsy.com virus, it is important to note that the website itself is not the main intruder you need to get rid of because these symptoms that we mentioned are caused by the PUP[1] that infiltrated your system and redirected to this website or possibly installed other applications.

The main Chairgaubsy.com adware purpose is to redirect your online traffic to affiliated commercial websites and generate revenue for the sponsor and commercial publisher. From your clicks on redirects, pop-up windows, and banners delivered to your screen advertisers gain revenue.

Push notifications virus Chairgaubsy.com is called like that because the only content that gets delivered on your screen is the message:

Chairgaubsy.com wants to Show notifications

Press Allow to watch the video

Chairgaubsy.com directly encourages you to subscribe to questionable notifications. When you press anything on the message that appeared the subscription is automatically triggered and notifications start appearing on your browser and desktop continuously.

Additionally, since this is a potentially unwanted program, Chairgaubsy.com can cause:

  • advertisements that appear in commonly visited sites;
  • changed appearance of your browser[2];
  • freezer or crashes on the browser or device in general;
  • in-text links appearing out of nowhere;
  • browser pop-ups promoting updates or other software;
  • additional content installed without your permission.

As for the latter issue, you need to employ a reputable anti-malware tool for Chairgaubsy.com removal, so every related program, application or file can be deleted from the system in one step. You should choose a reliable antivirus or PC repair tool and perform a thorough system scan.

When tools like Reimage scan the device all potential cyber threats get indicated as dangerous. You need to follow suggested steps and remove Chairgaubsy.com. Remember to check your browser settings to block notifications from suspicious websites by:

  • Locate to your browser settings/preferences.
  • Select Advanced settings so you can make severe changes.
  • Then go to Websites or Content and find a section called Notifications.
  • Now you need to Block notifications from the unwanted pages or even Remove the website from the list.

Potentially unwanted programs come during unattended installations

If you choose to get your software from questionable sources online, make sure to opt for Custom or Advanced installations so you can at least avoid additional applications getting downloaded on your device without permission.[3] If you tend to use peer to peer sharing websites or get your applications from other sources online, you should do this step every time you install anything.

Advanced installations give you the opportunity to de-select unwanted programs added by the provider. Software bundles mostly used to distribute these PUPs because it is a quick method to spread products around the internet. Researchers[4] note that choosing your software providers more wisely can help you avoid unwanted infiltrations.
