Dear reader it seems you are looking for ways to deal with the problem named Mysites123. You have come to the right place, in this article we are not only going to provide extensive instructions how to remove Mysites123 from your system, we will also provide valuable information how to avoid further problems caused by the software in question.
We will be upfront about this – you are most likely dealing with a program of the Adware class of Malware. This is a sub-type of a virus class known for instigating a number of unwanted pop-up Advertisements and Website redirects onto the affected users’ desktops.
In addition to this you may notice some strange changes to your browser like toolbars appearing without your knowledge or consent, text turned into hyperlinks leading to some unsavory places and in some documented cases even a complete replacement of the web browser.
Some general advice for you:
- Do not click on the ads whether they are in the form of a pop-up window or a banner, it doesn’t matter. Avoid interacting with them.
- Once you are redirected to some strange website because of the virus, leave as fast as you can. Nothing good will come from spending time on such a shady place.
How did the virus reach your device?
There are a number of ways in which the malware may have infected your system. One of the oldest tricks in the book but still popular and ever evolving is through e-mail attachments. A lost has been written on this subject but still a couple of suggestions for you to follow:
- Be especially careful when opening an e-mail from someone you have no prior history of emailing. Be even more careful when clicking to download an e-mail attachment. In fact we strongly advise against doing so when dealing with e-mails from senders you don’t know.
- Open your eyes wide, there are things like the notorious phishing scam e-mails, messages that look like a legitimate sender has tried to contact you but are in fact bogus mails looking to steal your personal information.
Another way Mysites123 may have found its way into your PC is if you have downloaded and opened an infected executable (.exe) file from a file sharing website or a torrent. You can never be sure whether a file is not messed around it so if possible always use an anti-virus/anti-malware scanner to check a file before installing it.
The most common cause by a landslide is through software bundles. That is the Adware software was attached and installed together with another program, most likely freeware that you have installed at some point in the past. The reason you have probably missed it in the first place is very few people actually read through the EULA’s or review the Advanced options before actually committing to the installation process. Our advice for you is to do just that – click on advanced installation options and double check if something else is not been installed together with the actual thing you want to install.
