Online Surveys Center popup

We often emphasize that adware and freeware applications rarely come alone. There is a reason as to why we claim so. Take Online Surveys Center popup, for example. It is an adware pop-up that redirects you to a survey website and you are asked to fill in a questionnaire. You are redirected to Online Surveys Center popup website when you have a third party adware application installed on your computer. It means that in order to avoid being redirected to Online Surveys Center popup, you need to remove all the potentially unwanted programs from your computer.

According to the research carried out by our security experts Online Surveys Center popup shows up when you click an outgoing commercial link on a popular website. This pop-up actually manifests itself as a redirection to surveyfreebies.com. The redirection occurs because there is an adware application installed on your computer. Users often complain that they get redirected to Online Surveys Center popup, when they have freeware application related to Yontoo on their computers. Some of the applications may not work any longer, but that does not mean that it is impossible to get redirected to Online Surveys Center popup.

In some cases, the pop-up link may be modified for surveyfreebies.com/amazon, surveyfreebies.com/youtube or surveyfreebies.com/ebay in order to make the survey look legal. When Online Surveys Center popup appears on your browser, you are led through a survey and at the very end (if you do not close the pop-up), you are offered to choose one of a few gifts that you can get for free.

Needless to say, that Online Surveys Center popup is not related to any free gifts. Adware applications are created in order to help their makers generate financial profit, and so various third party advertising networks may make use of Online Surveys Center popup to promote their content.

This is the example of the first page of the pop-up:

Dear visitor,
You’ve been selected to take part in our anonymous survey. Tell us what you think of this 30 questionnaire, and to say “thank you”, we’ll offer you a few exclusive offers…

If you go through the survey, you will eventually be presented a list of “gifts”, but if you go through the instructions on how to receive them, you will eventually find out that you still are expected to pay for them.

In order to remove Online Surveys Center popup from your computer, you obviously need to terminate the adware application it is related to. To determine which program is supposed to be removed from your computer, run a full system scan with SpyHunter free scanner. Afterwards, do not hesitate to acquire a licensed antimalware tool that would protect your system from unwanted intruders.
