- Shows commercial adverts
- Annoying Pop-up's
Api.paltip.com is an advertising domain that will generate pop-ups on Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. Usually this adware-related domain displays pop-ups that require users to update their Adobe Flash Player. Take note that you should update your flash player only following the instructions of the official website. Downloading an update from Api.paltip.com will result in adware being installed on your computer and that is never good news. If you want to get rid of Api.paltip.com, you will need to remove adware or potentially unwanted application that utilizes Api.paltip.com.
It might also be the case that you simply clicked an outgoing link on a random website and you got redirected to commercial web page that simply displays Api.paltip.com. In such a case there is nothing you need to remove from your computer. Nevertheless, scanning the system with a reliable antimalware tool would still be a good idea, because you can never know what files or potentially undesirable programs might be residing in your system.
Here is an example of a pop-up ad displayed via Api.paltip.com:
First of all, the question is whether you REALLY need to view the page delivered by an adware application. And second, you definitely should not click the download button, because it is hard to tell what kind of software will be installed onto your computer.
In order to avoid Api.paltip.com pop-ups you should refrain from installing third party add-ons and extensions on your browser. Take note, that such programs as WebCake, Delta Toolbar, CouponBuddy and the like may be bundled with additional software that later on spams you with commercial ads.
For the most part Api.paltip.com advertisements are more annoying than dangerous. Nevertheless, users are always warned that constant exposure to third party content may leave their systems vulnerable to third party exploitation. Let us not forget that recently bundled downloads have become a popular mean of malware distribution as well. Thus, constant Api.paltip.com pop-ups might be the first sign that something has gone fundamentally wrong with the system.
Consequently, make sure you do not install unwanted applications that might prove to be detrimental to your system’s security. Find out what adware or potentially unwanted applications you have installed recently on your computer and then remove them via Control Panel. Api.paltip.com pop-ups should disappear automatically, but if they do not, reset your browser settings to default and then scan the PC with a reliable computer security application that will ensure all the potentially dangerous files are removed from the system for good.
