Danger level 7
Type: Adware

Adware applications may not be dangerous computer threats, but they should not be allowed to stay on your system, because they often come in packs, and with one application installed, you are bound to have a few more soon. Quite a few of adware applications will make use of adware server to generate and display annoying pop-ups. These pop-ups are supposed to promote useful updates and what not, but in reality they only make you download more adware onto your PC. If you wish to remove, you need to get rid of all the adware programs first.

It is highly probable that you have installed an adware application responsible for ads accidentally. Adware programs are usually bundled with freeware apps, or the download link is embedded into pop-ups that spring into action on adware-ridden web pages. Either way, in order to avoid and other similar adware websites, you should refrain from downloading shareware and freeware applications from unknown pages. Also, it is important to read all the steps on installation wizard, because you might receive a notice about additional applications about to be installed on your computer.

Once an adware program that makes use of server enters your computer, you are bound to receive a lot of annoying pop-ups when you browse the Internet. An adware program opens a new window with domain address and then the server redirects you to yet another address that displays an actual advertisement. For example, may redirect you to the following ad:

Please install Media Player HD to continue (Required)

- Watch HD movies online

- HD video performance with hardware acceleration of video

- Support for full screen mode with multiple monitors

- Bug fixes and security enhancements

Unfortunately, these pop-ups often promise something they cannot deliver. If you click to download the so-called “player”, you would actually initiate an automated download of a setup.exe file which would eventually infect you with even more adware applications.

Our security researches suggest that any type of adware can make use of server. Some user reports maintain that is used by DealPly plug-in, but that is only one of the many applications that can generate pop-ups, virtually slowing down your browser.

It is obvious that ads are really annoying, and they can actually expose you to potentially malicious content. Thus, it is necessary to remove an adware application responsible for it from your computer. Otherwise, you will not be able to get rid of ads.
