Don’t click on the Ads
Even though the Ads may offer great discounts on things you need you should not fall for their lure. Ads by DNS Unblocker is able to read your browser’s history and past search queries and thus it will load Ads that advertise similar goods.

There is some chance for the offers to be legitimate, but we advise against trying your luck.
Further you should be careful as Ads by DNS Unblocker may try to install viruses on your computer. The Ads may even offer free downloads of software or other free stuff like wallpapers, screensavers etc. These files will almost certainly be infected with a virus. Other popular tricks including fake messages about missing plug-ins, bogus warnings about virus infestations or registry errors and more. Typically the offered software will be suggested to help with the before mentioned fake problems or presented as a stand-alone useful app like PC optimizer.
We recommend you never install what Ads by DNS Unblocker might offer you, otherwise you might regret it later. There are some very dangerous viruses propagating themselves through programs like Ads by DNS Unblocker.
