Sites promoted by the Ads are not the only danger you face while dealing with supprimer tohotweb. It might try a more direct approach – to make you download and install an executable it offers you.

You may suddenly start seeing warnings that programs on your computers have expired (like Flash/Java) and need un update, or that there is a missing plug-in that needs to be downloaded or that maybe you require a certain video codec/player in order to see movie online – all of this is the work of Tohotweb Virus.

Another tricks in the same book involves reports by “free online scanners” that have detected problems with the registry, with the memory, registries, HDD health or similar.
