- Annoying Pop-up's
- Shows commercial adverts
If you have noticed an increased number of questionable third-party advertisements in your browsers while you are surfing the web, there is a good chance that BlockAdsPro has found a way to infiltrate your system. This annoying program does exactly the opposite as its name would suggest since it actually promotes third parties by displaying banner and pop-up advertisements. In fact, we have categorized it as an adware application. This malware infection can spy on you and gather information about your activities, which can be used to send customized content to your screen, which may well be potentially unreliable. If you were to engage with any ad this adware may show you, it is possible that you could end up scammed or infected with further malware threats. If you want to feel secure in your virtual world, we suggest that you remove BlockAdsPro as soon as possible. For the details about this infection, please continue reading our report.
In order for you to end up with this adware on your system, you need to click on unsafe third-party content. We have not found any official pages that would promote this application. It is possible that you will be redirected to the download page – which is regarded as a dangerous threat by your browser if you try – by clicking on corrupt links or third-party ads. But it is also possible that your PC was infected with adware previously, which is also capable of redirecting you to this malicious download page. So one way to avoid this infection is not to click on questionable links and ads, which you may find on search results pages displayed by browser hijackers or suspicious search engines as well as other shady websites. But there is worse.
It is possible that you install this threat without even realizing while installing a free software bundle. Software packages are a common thing nowadays and they can contain a number of programs and tools, including potentially unwanted programs and malware infections (adware programs, browser hijackers, Trojans, and fake alerts among others). You should always be extra careful whenever installing such a bundle, and mostly when you download it from a questionable source (shady torrent or freeware page). You may land on an unfamiliar file-sharing page after a web search and you may think that you are about to download your targeted free program; however, instead, you will download a package filled with threats like this adware. You also need to be cautious whenever you are viewing suspicious pages because these can host several questionable third-party ads and contents. One click on the wrong content could drop a package of malicious threats onto your machine. This is why we recommend that you scan your system deeply with a reliable online malware scanner after you delete BlockAdsPro.
This application has only one real function: To generate revenue for its creators by promoting all kinds of third parties that may not be all trustworthy. This means that once this infection is up and running on your computer, it may present to you an endless flow of banner and pop-up advertisements, which are not only disrupting and annoying but they can also put your system security at risk. If you click on a commercial ad that leads to a malicious website, you could drop further infections onto your computer without even noticing. What is worse, you could also be redirected to a fake website where you could be scammed out of your money. You should also know that this adware program can collect information about you and your browsing habits and use it to target you with tailored advertising, but this information package could also be sold to third parties who can use it similarly. This is why it is possible that you find more and more ads that suit your interests or taste while you are surfing the net. These ads are even more dangerous because you are more inclined to click on them. We recommend that you remove BlockAdsPro as soon as you can if you do not want to experience any of the ugly consequences.
It seems that you cannot eliminate this threat by running its uninstaller in Control Panel as it usually happens with similar programs. You need to locate its folder on your system and delete it. Please use our guide we have prepared for you below as a reference. However, it is possible that you do not wish to tackle this and the other possible threats manually; therefore, we suggest that you install a trustworthy anti-malware program, such as SpyHunter. This security software can automatically take care of all your virtual security-related problems.
