DelayPluginl FAQ:

Question: At the moment of writing, I am using Chrome web browser. However, I got tired of seeing its price comparisons, coupons and non-commercial pop-ups all the time! The content that I receive is usually marked either as “Ads by DelayPluginl” or “DelayPluginl Ads.” Have no ideas why it has started displaying such an excessive amount of ads. Maybe you have an answer for that?

Answer: The answer is simple – your Chrome is affected by an ad-supported extension, namely DelayPluginl. Programs that belong to ‘adware’ category are unbeatable in displaying ads. They inject codes of predetermined ads within web browsers, replace the ones displayed by websites, including Google, Amazon, etc. and tricks people into visiting websites of its affiliates. This way, adwares generate income from advertising and affiliate marketing. Therefore, if you have started receiving DelayPluginl pop-up ads while browsing, the only way to stop them from appearing is a removal of the add-on. The easiest way to do that is to run a full system scan with a reliable anti-spyware, such as Reimage Reimage Cleaner Intego.

    Maybe someone knows what freewares are involved in the distribution of DelayPluginl virus?

    I assume that its not possible to indicate all freewares that carry bundles. This one is probably not an exception. If we would know what components freewares are carrying, we would not have troubles with PUPs like DelayPluginl.

    Oh, thanks for your contemplations! I have recently installed about ten or more freewares, so I dont know which of them might have been bundled. I dont want to remove them all, so I assume Im going to use SpyHunter or Malwarebytes to remove DelayPluginl ads.

    DelayPluginl ads show up on my Firefox every time I try to browse. To tell the truth, they disrupt to browse so badly that sometimes I cant even see the content of the website. I dont imagine browsing without accidental click on any of those pop-ups. If I close the ad, it pops out again just a few seconds later. Did anyone try to remove it manually? Is it worth trying or should I install anti-spyware right away?
