Having an Adware like Ads by Traffic Junky on your compute can be a harrowing experience. Until you remove it you are going to be pestered with all kinds of advertisements (Ads). It will pop a new Ads filled page every time you open your browser or a new tab/page inside it. It can also turn random words into hyperlinks, which is just another form of Ads. On rare occasions it might even install parasitic toolbars or mess with your default search engine.

Since you are reading this article then you probably already want this thing removed, which is a good thing. Our Removal Guide can be found at the bottom of the article, but we recommend you find a few minutes to read the rest of this article in full. The truth is that most viruses use similar patterns to infect computers – be it Adware or more dangerous stuff. Ads by Traffic Junky is no different in this regard. And the way they usually work is that they try to manipulate the user – you – into overriding the Window defenses and letting them in. We’ll list the most common tricks used so you are aware of them and you are able to stop the viruses that use them before you end up in your computer.

The things you have to watch out for

The first is very popular with Adware viruses and we like to call it the program bundle trick. There is certain installers that can install more then one program on your computer. The secondary programs are usually trial programs or demos, but in some circumstances they also might be Adwares. This is much more likely to happen if the installer belongs to some freeware program. This is the main reason we recommend skipping the default installation option and used the Advanced. It gives you both knowledge and control over what is getting installed. Deny any extras you don’t really need.

Second are Adwares like Ads by Traffic Junky themselves. Any files offered by Ads generated by Ads by Traffic Junky has a very high chance to actually be a virus or some hacked program that will try to work some money scam on you. Some of the most dangerous viruses like Ransomware or Trojans use the help of viruses like Ads by Traffic Junky.

Torrent sites and online storage sites are also very likely to land you with a virus. Trusting the files you get from them is risky in the first place, but there is also a more direct and dangerous trick. Often you will see many banners and pop-ups or even fake “Download” buttons. Clicking at the wrong place will result with a download offer for a file, which has the same name as the file you want, but the executable file extension (.exe).

REMEMBER! Virus files are almost exclusively .exe files. Never run and install .exe files that you downloaded from insecure locations!
