Up until now you have probably read tons of information on viruses and anti-virus programs. If you are an IT specialist or have computers as a one of your hobbies, you are most likely excellently familiar with all types of malware. Although you might not have a first-hand experience with them, you have at least heard of them. The sole purpose of this article is to inform you, to give you additional information about Ads. Even if it is something you have experienced, we suggest that you still read through it as there is always something new a person could learn. The removal guide and instructions are suitable for all browsers: Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer.

First of all, it is important to say that Ads is not even considered to be a virus. For some it is just another software. However, its good and innocent behavior at times is only a camouflage. Ads is a malware and it is spread more easily and quietly than one would think.

Second, Ads is mostly spread through Chrome. Why? Statistics show that Chrome is the most used internet browser of all and that its settings make it most vulnerable to the virus. Mozilla Firefox have different settings where one can not watch a video anymore because it does not allow a flash. Internet Explorer, on the other side, is the oldest web portal of all, therefore, not as well maintained. It’s weakness in operation makes it a very easy target for hackers. Not many use IE anymore, but the ones that do should be extremely careful, especially when they download files.

Third, and speaking about downloading files — a very popular way to get Ads on your PC is through software bundling. This happens in the process of you downloading a file, but using the default and/or automatic downloading settings. While downloading the file that you actually want, you end up downloading a bunch of other programs that you don’t want and that are usually a virus carrier. You may not even realize that you have them on your PC until you experience slowness of operation of the overall performance of the computer, glitches, bugs, etc.

Fourth, Ads may get installed on your PC when you open an infected e-mail attachment or if a friend of yours has gotten his/her e-mail account hacked, then it is very easy for yours to follow its ‘fate’ and along with that yo get Ads on your computer. Phishing e-mails fall into the same category of “infected inboxes”. It looks like a normal letter, but its content is either weird or not there. You need to remove the name of the sender of this e-mail off your address book and let them now, through another channel and not e-mail,that their account has been hacked. Social media channels could also be a malware carrier, keep that in mind!

Fifth, if you have noticed that there are too many advertisements on the webpages you visit often, then Ads is there. If your work gets interrupted by excessive amount of pop-up ads that may appear as banners –top,bottom,left,right on your webpage–or flashing boxes, or an ad box right in the middle of your page without any chances of manually removing it, then you’ve definitely gotten the virus.

Sixth, browser redirecting is another very,very big sign for the presence of the virus. You sit down and start using Chrome, but suddenly Mozilla opens up, or simply additional tabs and you keep trying to close them, but unsuccessfully.

Each of the sections described above is dedicated to enriching your general awareness for this kind of threat. Also, free programs especially are known to carry it. During the setup you might be asked if you want to install a gratuity program. If you weren’t too alert at that moment and simply clicked yes, then look no further, you got the virus and it needs to be uninstalled. The removal guide will take you through the necessary steps to accomplish this successfully.
