How is your device being negatively impacted?
One of the things you have probably noticed in the general sluggishness of your whole device and the vast increase in loading times for seemingly basic operations like opening your web browser, or a new page/tab while browsing. This is not a coincidence by any means. On the contrary it is all Ads by Dealnj Virus’s fault. We are going to explain it in a simple way – any time you decide to perform one of the above mentioned operations but not only them, actually any time your browser is active, in parallel with the action you are trying to perform an Ad is also being loaded. This put a much higher strain on your CPU cores to perform an operation that generally takes a lot less to be completed.
Another issue that might turn more serious than previously considered is the safety of your personal information. If you have taken notice – the displayed ads are in some way related to your online searches and web page visits. That means Ads by Dealnj Virus has gained access to your browser cache and cookies, thus gathering information about your browsing history. What is more troubling is whether the virus can also access your stored account names and passwords. That might be especially damaging if you are using any form of online payments. We recommend changing your passwords once you have get rid of the Adware embedded in your browsers.
