We cannot stress enough the importance of checking every single installation wizard step each time you install new software on your computer. In case you often download freeware applications from third party websites, it is possible that sooner or later you will end up installing such applications as BlockUtubeAd on your computer that are more annoying than useful. If you see this extension installed on your browser, you should terminate the application at once via Control Panel, and then make sure that you get rid of any other related programs in no time.
As it has been mentioned in the previous paragraph, BlockUtubeAd installs plug-ins to all main browsers. It means that Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer get affected by this adware application, and the name of the extension installed may differ, because with every new installation the amount of capital letters is calculated at random. Consequently, BlockUtubeAd can be installed as BlockUtubeAdd, BloockUutubeAd and so on.
This application usually gets installed on your computer without your permission, but you are the one who initiates the installation. That is so, because BlockUtubeAd does not have an official website, and only travels bundled with freeware and adware. The installer file for BlockUtubeAd can be included in any downloader or installer from any third party website. For example, it is very likely that it will come bundled with the likes of Media Player Pop-up Ads, because such adware applications often travel in packs.
When BlockUtubeAd is installed on your computer, you will experience an increased amount of pop-ups whenever you browse the Internet. These pop-ups will display various shopping suggestions, and the stream of commercial advertisements will only increase if or when you access online shopping malls.
Just like any other adware application, BlockUtubeAd may intend to provide you with personalized commercial ads content. For that purpose, the program may collect data on what websites you frequent and what you search online for. That is not illegal practice, but BlockUtubeAd might as well get exposed in shady marketing schemes, and this personally non-identifiable information could be leaked to malevolent third parties.
Luckily, you should be able to remove BlockUtubeAd manually via Control Panel. While you are at it, terminate all the other programs this application has arrived with. To determine which programs need to be removed from your computer, scan the PC with SpyHunter free scanner. You might need to invest in a licensed antimalware tool to ensure that your system is fully protected against any potentially unwanted programs or other threats.
