Video Ads Blocker
Video Ads Blocker, also known as YoutubeAdBlocker, is a potentially unwanted program that allegedly blocks advertisements shown on Youtube.com. However, in reality, this browser extension does not perform this task because its real purpose is to show you unwelcome and possibly annoying commercial advertisements to make money. Therefore, you may want to remove this program from your PC altogether because the ads that this program can show you may come from unknown sources that can promote malicious content. Also, you may get YoutubeAdBlocker accidentally, and if that is the case, then there is no reason for you to keep it.
This program used to have a website at Youtubeadblocker.com, but this site is down as of July 7th, 2017. However, testing performed earlier revealed that getting this program from this site is not easy. When trying to download Video Ads Blocker’s installer, a pop-up used to appear and forced you to download an installer of an entirely different adware program. However, it was possible to get the real installer of this application. Testing has shown that, when running the installer, it will offer you to install potentially unwanted software such as Mobogenie. However, what is surprising is that when you install Video Ads Blocker from its website, you will actually get to choose for which browser you want to install it — Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. Also, the installer did not install Video Ads Blocker but a legitimate Adblock plus extension from Adblockplus.org. Therefore, the website is bogus, and its purpose is to install adware and potentially unwanted programs.
Nevertheless, you can get the real Video Ads Blocker extension from links such as Lp.ezdownloadpro.info/eb2/?q=cars+doc which comes bundled with GreatSaver which is an adware-type program. Both of them come bundled in as EzDownloader. The installer does not inform you about the installation of Video Ads Blocker which makes it potentially unwanted as you can get it accidentally.
The main purpose of this application is to show pop-up ads when you browse the Internet. It will redirect you to its promoted websites. Our research has shown that this program is set to promote other questionable software that may be of the potentially unwanted or adware variety. Among these shady programs, we find browser toolbars, system optimization utilities, and so on. If you click the ads and pop-ups, then the developers of Video Ads Blocker will get paid. We want to inform you that having this program on your browser is a potential security risk because it can subject you to malicious content that can further compromise your computer’s security and even your privacy.
As you can see, a program that appears to be dedicated to blocking ads on YouTube is actually showing ads itself, and not just any ads, but ads that come from shady sources. Therefore, we recommend that you delete Video Ads Blocker from your browser using our guide. We also suggest installing an anti-malware program and scan your PC to make sure that more malicious software has not infected your PC.
