Danger level 7
Type: Adware
Common infection symptoms:
  • Annoying Pop-up's
  • Shows commercial adverts

Users are often concerned with their computer security, and this concern is exploited by cyber criminals in order to distribute unreliable software. is a domain used to display annoying ads. To remove ads, you need to find the program that is responsible for generating them. This adware program is clearly running on your computer, so you need to open Control Panel and delete all the unfamiliar applications at once. If you are not sure which programs must be removed, scan your system with the SpyHunter free scanner.

A full system scan is necessary to determine what unwanted programs are installed on your computer. We are using the plural here because adware applications seldom get distributed individually. At the same time, it also means that you will have more than just one application to remove from your system. However, no matter what you do, you should never resort to using the methods displayed in the pop-up. The phone number indicated in this misleading notification is clearly false, and the domain cannot provide you with any reliable help regarding the current state of your computer’s security. Thus, you should remain calm whenever you see the following message on your screen:

Warning! New Virus Detected
Your computer may be in danger!
System Detected (2) Potentially Malicious Viruses: Rootkit.Sirefef.Spy and Trojan.FakeAV-Download. Your Personal & Financial Information IS NOT SAFE.

We would like to point out that the Sirefef Rootkit is an actual computer infection that can severely jeopardize computer security. However, the message DOES NOT mean that you are infected with it, and you clearly do not need to scramble and remove this infection right away. Why? Because it is not there. On the other hand, you clearly have some adware or potentially unwanted programs in your system; otherwise, you would not be seeing the notification when you browse the Internet.

There is a possibility that the pop-up interrupts your web browsing because you have accessed some adware-related website that generates this message and there is no adware program installed on your PC. Nevertheless, the fact that you have entered a potentially corrupted website is enough to ring some alarm bells.

The bottom line is that you need to get rid of the message. If you fail to do so, it is very likely that you will be soon flooded with other annoying notifications, and eventually you could get infected with malware.

Remove all the suspicious programs that you find on your system. Do not forget that after manual removal it is strongly recommended that you invest in a licensed computer security tool, as you must safeguard your PC against similar intruders in the future.
