Why do I see so many ads?

Seeing an excessive amount of ads might be the sign of virus. This computer infection is an adware[1] program which is designed to deliver lots of pop-ups, banners, in-text, and other types of online ads. website promotes an application which is supposed to allow users to visit various sites or social networks banned in particular countries, work or educational institutions. Thus, this app might seem useful; however, we suggest staying away from it. Once you install it, the adware might start tracking the information about you and deliver personalized ads.[2] What is more, adware might enter the system unnoticed; thus, you should be careful when downloading freeware and shareware[3] if you want to avoid this suspicious application. On the affected computer, the program aims at Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer web browsers. It might install third-party applications or alter their settings in order to deliver online ads or initiate redirects to the promotional websites. You should be aware of worrying redirect tendencies. Some of the ads might lead to the infected sites.[4] Hence, within one click you might end up on phishing or tech support scam website. In the Terms of Use, developers reveal that they do not take any responsibility for the direct or indirect damage that you might experience using their service. Thus, we do not recommend risking and using it.

The adware program uses a “virtual layer” that allows delivering online advertisements on every visited website. They might cover necessary content, do not have “close” button and try to get your click in the aggressive ways. It happens because developers generate pay-per-click revenue. If you do not want to be used as a money making tool, you should remove without hesitation. What is more, these ads might look appealing because this application collects information about users and allows third-parties to install their tracking cookies as well. Thus, when using this service, you can expect that all your steps online are spied, analyzed and used against you. Indeed, it’s better to remove than dealing with bothersome activities. If this sneaky infection got inside the computer unnoticed, you should run a full system scan with an anti-malware program and get rid of it automatically. This adware may not be the only one component installed on your PC. Thus, professional tools, such as Reimage Reimage Cleaner or SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner assures that all suspicious applications, as well as virus, are eliminated from the system entirely.
