Danger level 8
Type: Adware
Common infection symptoms:
  • Annoying Pop-up's
  • Connects to the internet without permission

We usually deal with malware infections in our entries, but this time we would like to talk about something a lot less conspicuous. Here we have an adware server at This adware server, all by itself, is just a domain out in the spaces of the internet. This domain cannot do any harm, and yet we feel that we should talk about it because it might be associated with certain computer security issues. However, please bear in mind that to stop seeing on your browser, you need to locate and delete the adware program that uses this server to display various ads.

Although we always say that it is extremely important to invest in a legitimate antispyware tool, a reliable security tool isn’t everything. You also need to review your web browsing habits if you want to avoid various intruders. For instance, a security tool cannot stop you from installing potentially unwanted programs because they are not inherently malicious. However, if you install potentially unwanted programs, you could soon experience redirections to and other similar websites, consequently landing on dangerous pages that could be promoting something malicious. So it is clear that you have to learn how to recognize potentially unwanted programs.

Adware and potentially unwanted programs are often distributed bundled in software packages. For example, if you download something from a file-sharing website, it is very likely that the installer will carry more than just one application. That is why; you have to go through the installation steps carefully. Read all the steps carefully without skipping them because you are bound to found something about an adware application or some browser plug-in that you really do not need. If you skip this part, the program that redirects you to will definitely get on your computer.

At the same time, it also means that there might be more dangerous and unwanted programs on-board, too. After all, these applications do not travel alone. Hence, do yourself a favor and scan your system with the SpyHunter free scanner. If there are potentially unwanted or suspicious programs installed, the scanner will notify you immediately, and you will be able to remove them at once. For the most part, deleting such programs from your system is not that hard because you just need to uninstall them via Control Panel. Also, it would be a good idea to check the list of your browser add-ons, too.

We do not have information about the adware programs that employ to distribute commercial content. However, we know that this adware server redirects users to,,, and other similar websites. There might be several programs out there that employ this adware server to redirect users to the websites they promote. You might not even notice how your browser redirects you to, and then it quickly switches to some other website. At first, the commercial content might be random, but the longer the adware program that uses remains on your computer, the most custom that content will become more common.

This is where the danger behind such programs rears its head. Although does not try to infect you with malware or expose you to dangerous websites, no one can guarantee that the third party that makes use of the adware server won’t do that. Hence, in the worst cases, could be exploited to promote potentially harmful content, and you could find yourself swept into some fishy online marketing scheme. Although malware infection through adware pop-ups is highly unlikely, such a possibility remains. Therefore, the sooner you get rid of all the potentially unwanted programs, the better.

If you do not know which program might be redirecting you to, scan your computer with a security tool. You should be able to remove it via Control Panel, but if the app doesn’t have an entry on the list of installed programs, simply terminate it automatically with the security tool of your choice. Also, please consider resetting your browser settings to default. There might be add-ons or plug-ins that collect your web browsing data and then share the information with unreliable third parties. Avoid that by keeping your browser clean, and stay away from unfamiliar websites.
