Many Results Hub Ads is a type of Potentially Unwanted Program, or PUP. It is characterized by extremely limited functionality in what would be the main focus of the program – but that is not really what Many Results Hub Ads is about. The main function of Many Results Hub Ads is to spam your computer with advertisements (Ads) as you browse online. These Ads will be created whenever you start your browser or when you click onto a link or open a new tab/page yourself. You could be seeing the Ads as pop-ups, banners or maybe they appear over certain highlighted words in any text you might be reading.
We strongly advise you to ignore all Ads shown to you by Many Results Hub Ads. Nothing good will ever come out of these, because they are not here to do you a favor, they are here to generate $$ for however created them – at your expense. PUPs and Adware are generally recognized as carriers of viruses, other unwanted software or as participant of bigger scams.
Some things to be aware of
As mentioned above it’s best if you stay away from Many Results Hub Ads altogether. PUPs and Adwares are constantly improving and there is no knowing what danger we’ll be up against on the day after tomorrow. However the list below will hopefully be informative enough to raise the red flag for you. Whenever you see any of the following items – either via Many Results Hub Ads or via random Ad on the internet you are probably in danger!
- Error messages about missing plug-ins or about required codecs or video player. Supposedly these will be required in order to watch something online, but that’s a lie and the error messages are actually Ads
- “Free online scans” that detect problems with your computer – those could be virus infections, registry errors, lack of optimization, etc. There is no such thing as a free online scan that scans your computer without your permission. All of this is a scam that aims to make you download and install bloatware or a virus
- Ads that offer items with ridiculous discounts from shops you know and trust. This could be phishing and the sites these Ads lead to are not the real shop, even though it may look exactly like it. If you try to log-in with your account your name and password will be recorded and the hackers can use them to log into the real site and steal your private and financial data.
- Emails that contain attachments are often carriers of various viruses. Remember that is an Email comes from someone you know this is still not a guarantee that it is not infected. There are viruses capable of sending themselves via the email of the person who owns the computer.
As a final warning remember that viruses are carried and installed by Executable files (.exe). With that in mind be conscious about .exe files you download and install on your computer. Make sure those are acquired from the official site that develops the program you are about to install. Executable files obtained from unsafe sources like random emails, blogs, forums, torrent sites, online storage sites and more are potentially carriers of nasty surprises.
