TTWifi virus: another annoying adware

Have you noticed advertisements suggesting you to purchase a new smart TV or a mobile device? It is likely that your PC has been assaulted by TTWifi virus. Luckily, it is not a highly destructive cyber threat, but, in fact, an adware-type application which can also be called as “potentially unwanted program”. After it manages to infect your computer, it can cause a variety of different pop-ups that are displayed in various forms. They can show up as in-text ads, banners, pop-up notifications and similar alerts. In addition, you may be highly irritated by its redirect activity that is initiated as soon as this adware is added to the browser. Though recurring redirect websites is an occasional phenomenon encountered by every user, the amount of the redirects caused by this adware will surely make the most patent user lose his or her temper. Thus, before that happens, remove TTWifi quickly. Reimage Reimage Cleaner Intego will speed up the elimination process and will help you find every little element of this PUP.

How could you tell that one’s computer is affected by this ad-supported program? Typically, you should see it in your browser as one of your extensions. Also, you may notice changes in your start page and the default search engine that were initiated without your approval. In this case, you should NOT use this unknown search engine because you can be easily redirected to unknown domains seeking to infect your computer with malware. Besides, it can employ rogue scripts and codes to monitor the amount of TTWifi ads left in your search results. We would like to warn you about these ads that are mostly set to offer specific goods or software. The PUP tends to direct you to the domains of its sponsors. However, they often happen to be unreliable sources. Instead of a useful application, you might accidentally download a poor imitation of a well-known application. In addition, you should beware of the redirect domains because they might shelter potentially infected and malicious viruses. Therefore, we recommend you to initiate TTWifi removal.

How does this adware spread around?

The hijack takes place when users install new applications. Due to reckless installation, few notice that optional programs come along with the main downloaded applications. When the “Install” button is hit, the automatically pre-marked applications get installed as well. If you are interested in how you can prevent similar PUP from infiltrating your computer, follow these recommendations while installing a new application. First of all, check “Advanced” settings. After that, unmark all optional applications which are unnecessary and potentially malignant. Such cautiousness will help you to detect similar questionable programs before they get installed and lower the risk of getting infected by malware in general.
