- Annoying Pop-up's
- Shows commercial adverts
- Connects to the internet without permission
Our researchers have recently received reports from various sources about a new adware program, called Notifier PLUS. This deceiving piece of programming tries to pass on as a useful browser extension, but in reality it is a mere adware application that you should remove. As a general rule, adware is used to promote unreliable content provided by dishonest advertisers, and sometimes they promote malware downloads that can wreak havoc on your computer. We at Pcthreat.com have an obligation to research every malicious application that we come across. So, this article is dedicated to the safe removal of Notifier PLUS, because research shows that the application is definitely unsafe.
Adware developers often approach the owners of freeware sharing websites and offer them to bundle their adware with legitimate applications in exchange for a slice of the profit made from advertising things. Little do the owners know about what is being advertised by the adware that they include in their bundles. In the case of Notifier PLUS, it displays a fake warning that is presented is a subtle way. From time to time a pop-up appears. It asks if your computer is running slow. Some users might get the impression that this is for real but it is actually a scam. Users are being convinced that their computers are malfunctioning when in reality they might be doing just fine. Note that the notification contains a tech support phone number. Please do not dial the number because it is likely a premium rate call, which will set you back a pretty penny.
In addition to the notification, the application can display other ads that are equally unreliable. It can display a warning that your Java or Adobe applications are outdates and are in need of an update. Or it can display fake error messages that say that your computer is in danger and that you need to download their program which will resolve the issues. We encourage you not to be so gullible and never take advertisements at face value, because it might bring undesirable consequences. These are just a few examples how you can get tricked into downloading malware.
Clearly this application needs to be deleted, because it only serves the interest of people you want to make easy money from annoying and often dangerous advertisements.
