Dear Reader,

Have you ever experienced some naughty ads, while you have been trying to browse the Internet or visit a certain web address? If your answer is positive and it most probably IS, you might have been disturbed by an ad-generating program called Probleme Navigateur.

Nature of Probleme Navigateur

The cause of your possible irritation has been positively identified as Adware-type software.  Technically, it means that this program’s specialty is producing numerous different versions of ads. They could be in the form of pop-ups, hyperlinks, text boxes, banners; and they may even appear inside your browser or inside the dialog window of a program you have installed. Such rather aggressive behavior is a result of the pay-per-click scheme. The bigger the number of the advertisements displayed, the bigger the amount of money Adware earns for its creators.

How have you ended up with Adware installed on your computer?

Basically, we can mention many different ways of catching Probleme Navigateur. The most widely used distribution methods appear to be spam emails, infected attachments, torrents and software bundles. We are going to explain in detail what a software bundle really represents. It is actually a mixture of different programs that get spread for free. The given bundle’s creators often tend to put an Adware-like program inside so that they can use it for generating additional profits.

Also, bear in mind that by only downloading such a bundle, you can’t get infected with Probleme Navigateur. You need to install the software from that bundle to your PC in the most careless way: by choosing the Default {Typical/Automatic/Quick) option of the installer. Remember to try to get used to selecting the feature that provides you with most details about the bundle: most commonly it is marked as Advanced {Custom/ Customized}. By using it, you will know what you incorporate into your system and you will have the chance to leave something behind.

Can Probleme Navigateur do anything harmful to your system?

It cannot perform any malicious activities on its own. For example, most malware programs are able to steal data, destroy a whole system, crash it, hijack files and then extort the affected users for ransom. On the contrary, Probleme Navigateur is relatively harmless as it is not capable of doing anything like that.

Still, some users may find some of Adware’s features a matter of question. For instance, most Adware-like software could be programmed to track and research your surfing habits. In this way it can find out what websites you visit regularly and display only ads of similar services, web pages and products. Another possibly suspicious pattern in the behavior of Probleme Navigateur is that sometimes it may show so many advertisements at one time that your computer may even stop responding. However, such a scenario is not very likely. Another highly unlikely possibility is that some of the generated pop-ups might lead to potentially infected websites, with serious security threats in the form of viruses, like Ransomware and Trojans. Nevertheless, that is not common.

Becoming a fan of prevention

No matter whether it comes to Adware or other possibly suspicious programs, the prevention advice mentioned below is supposed to help you stay away from such annoyances.

  1. Spend a little more on an incredible anti-malware program. Invest only in the best programs available, as their virus databases are the biggest and you will be protected against more threats;
  2. Having a pop-up blocker and a working Firewall is not a luxury, it is a necessity nowadays. While such tools are unable to stop the randomly popping up ads, they are completely capable of preventing the website-hosted advertisements from appearing on your screen;
  3. Knowledge is a powerful tool – use yours to install any new software on your PC in the right way. The Advanced feature of the installation wizard should become your best friend. Prioritize it;
  4. Choose the places on the Internet that you habitually visit very carefully. Also, don’t open any spam emails unless you are positive of who the sender is and what the purpose of the letter is. Otherwise you may end up being contaminated with cyber threats far worse than Adware.
