  (10/100) How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

removal by Gabriel E. Hall - -   Also known as virus, ads | Type: Adware is yet another advertising platform that may be closely related to various adwares and potentially unwanted programs. Many internet users think that these unwanted programs and adwares are malicious infections. No, in reality they can't pose harm to any computer. However, we can assure you that they can try to flood you with tons of different ads and initiate redirects on each of web browsers. If you are suffering from strange pop-ups (“Ads by”), misleading notifications (“Your computer is not backed up, backup your files online today”), questionable updates (“In order to view this content, you need to update your Flash Player”), you should be worried. Don't click on these notifications by any means because you may expose your computer to cyber criminals and check your PC with reputable anti-spyware. Otherwise, you may be tricked into installing such untrustworthy programs as MyPC Backup.

How can hijack my computer?

Just like any other adware or potentially unwanted program, virus spreads using a very deceptive distribution technique that is called bundling. You can easily add this unwanted intruder if you are not attentive enough when installing free programs from questionable sources. In other words, you may experience redirects right after installing a doubtful freeware. Please be careful and avoid unfamiliar programs without checking them first. You can easily find more information about programs that you want to install if you take some extra time and research them on the web. Read comments and reviews from people who have already downloaded the program, and make sure that it has no virus related attachments, MyPC Backup or similar dubious applications. Also, follow the entire installation, select advanced or custom installation method and unmark all unfamiliar accessories if there is any.
