What is NX Gone adware?

NX Gone is a dubious browser extension that crooks use to generate revenue

NX Gone adwareAdware can cause various unwanted symptoms, like pop-ups, banners, and redirects

NX Gone is a browser extension that acts as adware,[1] displaying more commercial content such as pop-ups, banners, and redirects. While it claims to help inexperienced users navigate the Internet, this claim is rarely true. Crooks frequently try to make their applications appear useful and appealing in order to encourage user installation or discourage removal. Unfortunately, this app provides no benefits, so we recommend that you remove it using our instructions.

Fraudsters use these applications to generate revenue through pay-per-click (PPC) advertising. Although some advertisements appear to be harmless, they can actually be dangerous. Unfortunately, dishonest advertisers frequently use rogue advertising networks to display advertisements that lead to dangerous websites.

As a result, users may unintentionally visit scam pages designed to trick them into disclosing personal information, downloading potentially unwanted programs (PUPs),[2] or even downloading malware. Ads promoting counterfeit antivirus software, software deals, surveys, giveaways, and other deceptive content are not uncommon. As a result, seemingly innocuous pop-ups can lead to more serious problems. It is critical to remove this intruder as soon as possible, especially if the affected device is used by underage people.

SYMPTOMS Annoying pop-ups and other types of advertisements start appearing on the screen
DISTRIBUTION Shady websites, deceptive ads, freeware installations
DANGERS Links embedded in the ads might lead to dangerous websites
ELIMINATION Eliminate the extension through your browser settings; scanning the machine with anti-malware tools is recommended

Distribution methods

Applications like NX Gone are frequently found on dubious download pages like Watchintenselyoriginaltheproduct.vip. These pages use social engineering techniques to trick users into thinking they need to install a browser plugin in order to perform certain actions.

We strongly advise against visiting unfamiliar websites and avoiding clicking on random links or advertisements, as these can lead to malicious websites. Websites that engage in illegal activities, such as illegal streaming platforms, should be avoided because they are unregulated.

It is best to use official web stores and developer pages to ensure security. Apps that are listed on digital marketplaces go through a rigorous review process. However, thorough research is still recommended, as some malicious apps may slip through the cracks. Before making a decision, always read reviews, consider ratings, and keep the number of users in mind.

Freeware installations

It is also possible that the NX Gone adware entered your computer without your knowledge, especially if you use freeware distribution platforms. To monetize user activity, these platforms frequently bundle additional software in their installers.

It is critical to remain vigilant during the installation process and to select the “Custom” or “Advanced” installation methods. Read the Terms of Service and Privacy Policy to understand how your data will be used. The most important step is to go through the file list carefully and uncheck any boxes next to unrelated applications.

Protect your privacy

It is now common for websites and web applications to display intrusive prompts requiring users to accept cookies.[3] These prompts frequently obstruct the view, which causes frustration. Many people, in their haste to proceed, simply click “Accept” without giving it much thought. However, if you have encountered unexpected pop-up spam, there is a good chance that you have visited dubious websites that are still tracking your online activities.

Cookies can store a variety of information, including the websites you visit, the links you click, your search queries, and even your online purchases. This data could be sold to advertising networks or other third parties. To address this issue, we recommend using a trustworthy repair tool such as FortectIntego. This tool can automatically clear cookies and cache from your browsers, reclaim storage space, repair corrupted files, repair system errors, and optimize the performance of your device. You can improve your online privacy and browsing experience by using such a tool.

Scan your system with anti-malware tools

If you have completed all of the preceding steps but are still experiencing unwanted symptoms, it is recommended that you scan your system for additional potentially unwanted applications (PUAs). We recommend that you use reputable anti-malware tools such as SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner or Malwarebytes to scan your machine, remove any detected threats, and provide warnings to prevent future infections before any PUPs make changes.

Manual removal of potentially unwanted programs can be ineffective at times because users may overlook related files and entries. Furthermore, malicious actors frequently disguise these programs as ostensibly useful tools, making them difficult to detect. If you still prefer manual removal, we have instructions for both Windows and Mac computers:

How to prevent from getting adware

Stream videos without limitations, no matter where you are

There are multiple parties that could find out almost anything about you by checking your online activity. While this is highly unlikely, advertisers and tech companies are constantly tracking you online. The first step to privacy should be a secure browser that focuses on tracker reduction to a minimum.

Even if you employ a secure browser, you will not be able to access websites that are restricted due to local government laws or other reasons. In other words, you may not be able to stream Disney+ or US-based Netflix in some countries. To bypass these restrictions, you can employ a powerful Private Internet Access VPN, which provides dedicated servers for torrenting and streaming, not slowing you down in the process.

Data backups are important – recover your lost files

Ransomware is one of the biggest threats to personal data. Once it is executed on a machine, it launches a sophisticated encryption algorithm that locks all your files, although it does not destroy them. The most common misconception is that anti-malware software can return files to their previous states. This is not true, however, and data remains locked after the malicious payload is deleted.

While regular data backups are the only secure method to recover your files after a ransomware attack, tools such as Data Recovery Pro can also be effective and restore at least some of your lost data.
