removal by Ugnius Kiguolis - - | Type: Adware is a fake lottery page with the purpose of collecting information about the visitor is the page showing colorful content and greetings depending on the particular holiday to trick people into revealing their names, email addresses, or even more valuable information. The suspicious site and additional redirects or adware-type symptoms regarding the speed of your device and advertising content indicate that your PC has an intruder already installed on the system. Experiencing such redirect once or twice may be harmless, but continuous online traffic reroutes and promotional material coming to your screen is not a good sign. Potentially unwanted programs get delivered via deceptive sites and during insecure installations of freeware when pre-bundled freeware gets installed in bulk, including useless applications. This fact also makes potentially unwanted programs more persistent and difficult to remove with one or two steps. adware can plant other files, apps, and content all over the system to keep the machine running slow and to control the online traffic with commercial content pop-ups.

Type  Adware
Main danger  Ad-supported sites appear out of nowhere and expose the user to questionable content or even pages where malware can be promoted or spread. Such online sites use tracking cookies[1] and other techniques to collect information about viewers
Symptoms  The website shows content that is created to trick users into clicking on the material, so other redirects get triggered and expose the viewer to sensitive pages and open more pop-ups, deliver banners and blinking boxes with survey forms. Clicking on anything causes additional tabs, browser windows and pop-ups to appear
Distribution  Other PUPs and cyber intruders can directly install such adware, and user unknowingly loads such threats during freeware installations from the internet, unreliable sources, and free downloading sites, torrent services
Elimination  Since you need to remove with all the traces, it should be eliminated using professional anti-malware that can detect more malicious-behavior based apps ad files possibly associated with a questionable PUP
Repair   You also need to get the infected machine back to the normal state. That can be achieved with a system repair tool like Reimage Reimage Cleaner Intego that may find and correct system files damaged by the threat

The particular virus pop-ups show different material, but once you click on anything displayed, another window shows up, or a new tab gets opened with an additional message. In most cases, such pages also launch cheerful music for the user to celebrate the wining or a holiday at the time.

However, such colorful display, blinking boxes, and pop-ups only lead to content that triggers more redirects, traffic reroutes or exposes you to possibly malicious online material. Even though is not propagated as a real virus it is called that due to push notifications and other scammy pages stating that you have won something or claiming that your device is infected by malware, outdated software causes additional issues. is the application that redirects you to other services and opens dozens of new pages on the screen where the pay-per-click scheme is actively used to generate profit from visitors' views.[2] This is one of the symptoms typical for potentially unwanted programs; others include:

  • unwanted content appearing on the screen;
  • suspicious tools and apps installed behind your back;
  • hyperlinks injected on typically safe sites;
  • promotional material pushing shady updates and software installations. adware is another potentially unwanted program that claims to have rewards and prizes to trick people into revealing their names or email addresses. is one of many sites like this that focuses on creating redirects. In particular, these are the same pages like the one in question, and you shouldn't be surprised when redirect to one of them appears on the screen:

There is nothing valuable about the site that shows noting besides promotional and pushy content or scammy material, so go straight to removal as soon as you notice anything suspicious and make sure to clean the device fully, so the same PUP cannot cause any issues in the future.

Unfortunately, the issue with virus is not ending with redirects and commercial content. This site and all the related advertisers can track and collect data about the visitor and his or her browsing preferences by accessing that information via viewed content. This data collecting issue is briefly mentioned in the Privacy Policy of the redirected page:

This Usage Data may include information such as your computer's Internet Protocol address (e.g. IP address), browser type, browser version, the pages of our Service that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages, unique device identifiers and other diagnostic data.

Adware applications come bundled during the freeware downloads

These cyber intruders mostly show up on the machine after insecure freeware installation because developers use bundling techniques. Such installers include pre-packed applications and software that has additional features and are set to load programs without requiring additional permissions.

Anything additive can occur without your knowledge or notifications from the system when you skip through steps and allow the bundle to get installed fully on the computer. Any settings then can get altered, and you wouldn't notice that the extra free program is installed on the machine until adware-type infection symptoms show up.

You can avoid shady installations by choosing Advanced or Custom options during such processes of downloading freeware from the internet. The best option is to rely on trustworthy providers and official pages where programs are promoted by developers directly, as experts[3] always suggest.
