Videostripe Pop-up Ads

It was discovered Videostripe Pop-up Ads might be displayed by unreliable tools installed on the user’s device. Apparently, the advertisements promote a particular streaming website that offers high-quality movie streaming if you register. However, these pop-ups may not mention you will be given only seven days free trial after which you might be asked to pay about 40 US dollars. Some users think the application’s library’s selection is a bit small considering the price since there are cheaper platforms with a wider variety. In fact, some of the negative user reviews claim their authors feel the advertised streaming website has scammed them. Therefore, if you are looking for more reputable services, we advise you not to waste any time with the application offered by Videostripe Pop-up Ads. To learn more about these advertisements and the product they promote users should read the rest of the text. At the end of it, we will also include deletion instructions that hopefully will help you eliminate these annoying ads.

The tool promoted by Videostripe Pop-up Ads is not malicious or harmful to the system, but there is a chance it could cause the user other troubles. As we mentioned at the beginning of the text, the advertised streaming services are given free of charge only for seven days, and after that, they cost around 40 US dollars per month. Researchers who tested the application say it is entirely possible the mentioned sum could be automatically taken from the user’s account soon after the seven days trial is over since while registering for the free services the user might be asked to provide his credit card details. Naturally, if you are thinking about taking this free trial, we would advise you to consider it carefully. Another reason we do not trust the product offered by Videostripe Pop-up Ads is the way it is promoted and distributed.

According to our researchers, Videostripe Pop-up Ads could be shown by adware or other untrustworthy software alike. Users can easily install such applications without even realizing it as they often travel with bundled setup files. Unfortunately, some users pick automatic installation settings to speed up the process and as a result, lose the chance to deselect additional program suggestions. Some installers do not even allow to deselect bundled applications, although they may mention some might be added automatically. Thus, to avoid potential threats, we recommend not only picking custom installation settings but also reading all given terms carefully. If any of them raise a suspicion or let you think the installer could add unwanted programs on your system, you should stop the process and exit the configuration wizard as fast as possible.

Bundled installers may not necessarily offer doubtful applications; it depends on the setup file itself. For example, if it comes from a reputable company and legitimate sources it will most likely suggest trustworthy tools. Nevertheless, if you download it after visiting a file-sharing website or while using P2P networks, the installer could appear to be bundled not just with adware, potentially unwanted programs, browser hijackers, and other minor threats, but also with malware. In other words, it is not enough to pay more attention during the installation process as it is same important to make sure the setup file comes from a reliable source. A trustworthy antimalware tool could make the task easier for you, so if you do not have such software yet, we highly recommend at least considering its installation.

Provided you do not wish to see Videostripe Pop-up Ads ever again; we would advise you to search your system for untrustworthy applications that might be displaying this content. It could be any recently added program and the instructions located at the end of the article will show you how to access Control Panel and erase the software you suspect to be unreliable. Probably, an easier way to remove potential threats would be to scan the system with a legitimate antimalware tool of your choice. This way all suspicious applications could be detected automatically, so all the user might need to do is click the deletion button provided after the scan.
