WARNING! START HERE, PLEASE! If you are reading this message, you should be aware that you have been infected by a computer virus. What you probably don’t know however is the class Ads Powered by Get Private belongs to – and that is adware. Adware are notorious for trying to trick users into installing more viruses that you would later have to remove in exactly the same fashion as what you are trying to get rid of now. And this is in the mildest cases – at worst you can get tricked into installing ransomware, which is the boogeyman class of all malware. Ransomware operate by encrypting (read: locking up) your files and demanding money to release them. Most of the time you can destroy the virus by simply reinstalling Windows, but you will lose all the information you have, and many users have important files on their PCs. And all of this simply because a door in your security was opened when you let Ads Powered by Get Private in.

To make sure you not only don’t end up in this situation ever again, but also be prepared to spurn all of Ads Powered by Get Private’s advances we want to tell you the most prominent ways it will try to trick you:

  1. It can show you fake updates for Java, Flash Player, and a variety of other programs that you have installed. The first two will be received automatically – practically all users infected by this malware report them. The other programs are dependent on your Control Panel. The virus scans it when it first lands on your PC.
  2. Another extremely dangerous trick is the virus posing as an anti-virus that seemingly wants to perform a scan. The danger lies in the effect that an anti-virus program has on users: they trust it almost implicitly. The people who created this malware know that, so make sure to not let it perform any system check-ups or database updates, and remove Ads Powered by Get Private before accepting any such offers.
  3. The third and most frequently used trick is connected to the advertisements. There is a degree of chance that when you click on them you will redirected not to the products, but to other websites with no clear relation. This happens with several sites at a time opening in new tabs. The problem here is that when it happens, these websites will most likely harbor other viruses like Ads Powered by Get Private. The even bigger problem is that they are slated to start downloading .exe files that autorun and turn into setups for said malicious programs. If the installation finishes you will have to remove them as well and they will try to play tricks on you as well.
