Although Noneblock.biz adware claims to be useful to that allows accessing blocked websites with no geo-restrictions. Sadly, it also seeks to clutter your computer screen with pop-up windows and display third-party ads to you. A number of ads that this adware displays is enormous, and this might prevent you from navigating through the Internet quickly because you will need to make pauses to close Noneblock.biz ads.

The answer is, tracking cookies. It inserts these little helpers into your browser and uses them to collect your details such as search queries, browsing history, ads that you click on, and similar information. However, data such as your search queries can contain details that you might not want to reveal to anyone, or even disclose your identity. Therefore, it is highly recommended to remove Noneblock.biz adware without a wait.

How could this PUP configure my browser settings without my permission?
This adware program typically configures browsers to use a remote WPAD.dat file as the Automatic Configuration Script in browser settings. Affected browsers then download a script from a remote location and use the instructions in the script to configure browser’s settings, for instance, proxy settings. If you were infected with malware that sets such settings without your knowledge, we highly recommend you to pay more attention to software installation settings. When you download free programs from the Internet, make sure you choose Custom or Advanced settings to install them. Otherwise, you won’t be allowed to opt-out unwanted items that come bundled with your download. Your task is to deselect additional items suggested to you and then complete the installation procedure by following guidelines provided by the installer. Just do not trust it when it recommends some third-party software to you – the developer of your chosen software is likely to be paid to do so.
