Notice Fix Site

Notice Fix Site

Notice Fix Site is an unwanted iPhone software component that negatively affects the way the device’s browser behaves. Notice Fix Site will cause the browser to suddenly open new and unknown sites and to fill your screen with obnoxious page-redirects and pop-ups.

Notice Fix Site

The Notice-fix.site virus will create fake events in your calendar.

This is actually a commonly encountered type of software and its representatives are known as browser hijackers. Unlike harmful viruses, Trojans, and Ransomware threats, the browser hijackers are mostly aimed at turning your device’s screen into a place for displaying various kinds of ads and promoting different sites. If you have Notice Fix Site in your device, you’d probably find it difficult to use the smartphone normally due to the frequent promotional banners that pop-up on your screen and the page-redirects caused in the browser. Your Safari may also have its main search engine and even its starting page altered by the hijacker. This is done to ensure maximum exposure of the user to the ads promoted by the unwanted app.

The good news here is that you should be able to quickly and safely uninstall Notice Fix Site from your device if you closely follow the instructions we have prepared on this page. Even if you don’t feel too bothered by the advertising actions of the hijacker, know that more dangerous threats like Trojan Horses, Ransomware, and Spyware oftentimes get distributed via misleading online advertisements and there’s likely going to be a lot of those on your screen if you don’t make sure to remove the invasive Notice Fix Site. Just follow the instructions and contact us through the comments section if you need additional assistance with the guide.

Notice Fix Site Virus Removal

Step1

First you need to close all pop-ups that are currently open.

  • If the pop-up has a checkbox named “Don’t show more alerts from this webpage” click on the checkbox before closing the Ad.
  • If a Block Alerts button happens to appear after you shut down a pop-up on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch tab that button to stop receiving alerts from the same page.

In case that a pop-up fails to close after performing the above operations:

  • On your Mac you should make your Safari browser close forcibly by pressing Command-Option-Esc. Select Safari from the list of Apps and force close it. After you force close it you need to restart Safari, but please hold the shift button while it starts. This will prevent any pesky Ads from opening automatically.
  • On your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch you can do the same by pressing the home button twice in a quick succession. You’ll then see a preview of all apps that have been recently used. Swipe left to find Safari and then swipe up on the app’s preview to close it forcibly In order to prevent Safari from opening unwanted windows on startup go to Settings->Safari and Clear History, as well as Website Data. This will also clear your browser history and cookies so keep that in mind and export them if you want to keep them.

Step2

Choose Preferences from the Safari menu. Then do the following:

  1. Select the Security icon and then click on “Block pop-up windows“. This should stop many types of pop-ups from appearing.
  1. Next check on your homepage and the settings for the search engines. Adware likes messing with those. We can not provide more specific instructions for this, as you may be using many different browsers.
    • Select the General icon and look at the Homepage field. It should either be empty or filled with the address of the Homepage you want.
    • Follow up on the Search icon. Again it should be either the default search engine or any that you have set for yourself. Note that in some versions of Safari these settings are found in the General panel/

Step3

Open Safari and click on the Extensions button. Note that Adware use extensions almost exclusively to inject the pop-up Ads into your browser. Any extension on this list that you do not remember installing yourself is likely planted there by the Adware. Remove ALL extensions you are unfamiliar with.
