Before we get started we need to clear that un-stop.net is NOT a Virus as many people consider it to be because of its resemblance.
Are browser hijackers actually dangerous?
Unfortunately many users, do not realize how dangerous and harmful Un-stop.net could be. They see it as a regular PC program of the freeware type, but unfortunately they are wrong about it — it is dangerous. It’s always good to be positive, but no need to be naive and one day you could easily find your computer fill to the brim with bloatware and other useless programs. Un-stop.net spreads in many ways and it will try to maintan a low profile on infected PCs, but they’ll certainly feel its effects in the form of various Ads.
You, the users, probably wonder why we publish so many articles on Ads Removal and other computer viruses. You probably think that one or two are enough, but the truth is that we can’t stress enough how harmful these programs could be.
The malware likes to spread in many ways and yes, it usually spreads its “wings” through online advertisements, but not only. E-mails, download sites and platforms, torrents and more could also be responsible. Following is a brief overview of some of them:
- Most people today tend to use social media channels to exchange written or media materials, so the emailing has kind of gotten old, but regardless if its via social media channels or e-mail, attachments need to be scanned! It’s easy to immediately save a file when a friend has sent it to you, but keep this into consideration: the malware is sticky and LOVES to attach itself to other files. We do not insist that all attachments carry with a potential computer threat, but it’s not a bad idea to scan them before opening. Of course, you can always remove Un-stop.net, but it’s better to not get it on your PC at all.
- Software bundling is another way for the virus to spread. Many have never heard this term. So when you are downloading a particular program and are using the default settings, it is VERY POSSIBLE to download extras along the way. If you’d like to avoid that and we assume that you do, just use the custom settings.
- But the most popular way for Un-stop.net to hit its targets is via the excessive pop-up ads that can make you believe you have other, more serious problems at hand. Downloading the “free” software solution they offer will only make the problem worse – the only thing you really need to do is uninstall the underlying browser hijacker.
This is a brief description and info about this type of threat, but we strongly suggest that you familiarize yourself with the removal guide attached and to read through some of our other articles. All of them contain very useful information!
