No-block.net ads – are they dangerous?

No-block.net virus is a clone of no-stops.net virus. This computer parasite alters browser’s settings and then starts displaying various third-party offers during user’s browsing sessions, sadly, annoyance might be the least problematic thing considering other issues that might arise from No-block.net ads. Although the program advertises itself as a proxy server[1] that helps to access geo-restricted websites and blocked services, it is clear that the author of this tool had entirely different intentions when developing it. Instead of helping the user to access restricted websites, it simply bombards the user with third-party ads collected from various ad networks. It is advisable to refrain from exploring these offers because clicking on them can cause redirects to highly suspicious or even dangerous third-party sites[2]. Once on such sites, you can be easily convinced to install a program you don’t need or sign up and provide personal information[3], and this can pose a threat to your privacy.

Questions about No-block.net ads

If you are a security-minded PC user, better take actions to protect yourself from dangerous content online, and avoid clicking on eye-catching offers that pop-up on your screen out of thin air. Remember the good old rule – if it looks too good to be true, it is. Therefore, if you do not want to be lured into insecure third-party websites, better stay away from No-block.net ads and remove No-block.net components from your PC. For that, we highly recommend using anti-spyware software like Reimage Reimage Cleaner Intego. You can also try to fix affected browsers manually (please see No-block.net removal tutorial, which is given right below the article).

How did I install a program without even realizing it?

You could get this ad-supported parasite either by installing a suspicious program or by following setup instructions provided on No-block.net website. No-block.net might come into your system in the form of a program or a browser extension, but it can come in like a fileless infection and simply alter your proxy settings[4] without installing anything on your computer. We suggest you carefully inspect suggested settings when installing free programs because, with a help of software bundling method, free programs typically help various potentially unwanted programs to reach computer systems effectively. We suggest choosing Custom/Advanced settings in software installers, as this is the easiest way to notice and deselect suggestions to install third-party software, browser toolbars[5] and other meaningless components that can add no value to your computer.

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. 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 the server or network manager that needs to monitor connections and activities. 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.

 

Recover files after data-affecting malware attacks

While much of the data can be accidentally deleted due to various reasons, malware is one of the main culprits that can cause loss of pictures, documents, videos, and other important files. More serious malware infections lead to significant data loss when your documents, system files, and images get encrypted. In particular, ransomware is is a type of malware that focuses on such functions, so your files become useless without an ability to access them.

Even though there is little to no possibility to recover after file-locking threats, some applications have features for data recovery in the system. In some cases, Data Recovery Pro can also help to recover at least some portion of your data after data-locking virus infection or general cyber infection.
