Danger level 6
Type: Adware redirect redirect will appear on your screen as a new browser window that seemingly pops up out of nowhere. The domain on this pop-up will lead you to, and the promoted content may differ depending on your web browsing habits. This kind of pop-ups is not malicious, but there is always a chance that the adware servers could be exploited by cyber criminals to display potentially harmful content. Thus, to get rid of redirect pop-up, you need to look for potential threats that could be installed on your computer. If you cannot find them yourself, please consider acquiring a licensed antispyware tool.

The best way to avoid such annoying adware servers is to be careful about the applications you download and install on your computer. For instance, if you need a particular application, you should download it from its official homepage. If the program does not have an official homepage, you should look for official distributors at least. Downloading freeware applications from third-party sources could be rather risky. Although for the most part, the sites that host and distribute freeware apps do not mean any harm, there is always a chance that the third-party installers will carry more than one application.

Bundled downloads are one of the most common freeware distribution methods. Users seldom understand how many unwanted programs they download and install on their computers because they do not pay attention to the installation wizard. This happens because most of the wizards follow the same pattern, and users do not think much of it. Of course, when you download a reliable program, you might think that you do not need to worry about that. But even with official upgrades and updates, you should still check every step carefully because you are always bound to find additional suggestions you can easily decline.

Unfortunately, if you go through the installation automatically, you will end up installing adware and freeware applications that probably use redirect servers to promote unreliable third-party content. These programs might not be there to infect you with malware, but it is very possible that they could be exploited by cyber criminals who need promotional channels for their programs and websites. Most of that promotional content will be commercial. In other words, the third parties will try to make you buy something via the redirect ads. And if that is the case, you can simply close the window and be done with it.

However, what if the content redirect displays is malicious? This kind of possibility exists, and if you fail to distance yourself from such content, there is always a chance you could get infected with malware. Hence, do yourself a favor, and run a full system scan the moment you see the random pop-up on your screen. We are sure that you are going to find a lot of unnecessary applications on your computer, and you will need to remove them at once. For the most part, it is possible to terminate such applications manually, by removing them via Control Panel.

On the other hand, it might be that redirect is generated not by a program that you have on your system, but by the website that you visit. It is possible to encounter websites that display a lot of pop-ups, especially if those websites offer some sort of free function or if they promote/host third-party applications. Such websites often need to cover their costs somehow, and they indulge in third-party advertising. Hence, it is not just about the programs you download and install on your PC, it also about your web browsing habits.

To be sure that your computer is safe and clean, you need to remove all the unfamiliar programs and then reset your browser settings to default. You can find the instructions on that right below this description. On the other hand, there might be applications that you did not notice or did not find. To deal with these programs, as mentioned, you should invest in a legitimate antispyware tool that will scan your system and will remove everything that is unnecessary.
