Ecoencomputer.com adware
Ecoencomputer.com - a PUP which enters the computer through freeware or shareware and then disturbs its victim by asking to click the "Allow" button to display notifications.

Ecoencomputer.com is a PUP which redirects you to adware-promoted sites after you click the “Allow” button displayed on the top left corner of the browser window. This type of unwanted application installs into the system together with regular programs due to the lack of user's attention while browsing the web. Once, this PUP is in the system, it can affect all web browsers on the system and starts causing numerous pop-ups, pop-unders, banners, and coupons. Beware that such activity is initiated right after you start your browsing on the web.

Ecoencomputer.com virus can be recognized from the following symptoms:

  • Continuously asks you to enable web browser notifications;
  • Modifies the browser's homepage and other settings;
  • Redirects to dubious pages;
  • Displays numerous adverts;
  • Disrupts PC's performance because of the overfilling adverts.

The fact that you cannot know is that adware-type programs[1], including Ecoencomputer.com virus, might collect various browsing-related details. Such non-personal information includes IP addresses, sites you have visited, viewed pages, bookmarks, etc. Developers gather this type of data to generate ads that could catch users' attention. This way, they increase their pay-per-click income as adverts that are being displayed seem to be quite useful from the first view.

However, all this activity does not bring any true value to the user. In most of the cases, it just interrupts you while browsing and wastes your time by tricking you into visiting sites that you would never visit. According to computer experts, you need to remove Ecoencomputer.com virus from your computer as soon as you spot the first redirect to an unknown website. You can proceed with the process easier by using Reimage or similar security software.

Finally, we should add that there is yet another reason why you should carry out the Ecoencomputer.com removal. Redirects that you start facing might take you to the misleading sites that can be filled with other malware. Such web pages might be filled with dubious or even harmful content, so make sure you avoid them. Otherwise, a risk of getting a more serious computer infection, for e.g. a Trojan[2], on your computer will rise.

Prevent adware infections by looking thru some tips

According to IT professionals[3], PUPs such as ad-supported programs often infiltrate the system through bundled software[4]. Such unwanted programs come attached to regular ones and install together during the downloading/installation process. We recommend visiting the Custom/Advanced section if wanting to solve this problem. There you will be able to deselect all incoming downloads you did not request for.

Moreover, you need to know that avoiding dubious-looking pages is very important. There are many suspicious and hazardous sites hiding throughout the web. Also, to increase your computer safety, download and install an antivirus program if you do not already have one.
