If you are seeing a large increase in advertisements displayed in web pages, tabs inexplicably opening on their own and increased load time for pages then it’s likely that your computer has been infected by fluey.com. This is a type of malicious software that security specialists refer to as Browser Hijacker. It specializes in the display of unwanted Ads in infected computers, fluey co to jest indeed, and the only way to stop it is to remove it. This article will give you all the information you need on how to do that, as well as some (hopefully) useful tips on how to protect your computer from such threats in the future.
Fluey.com – method of installation
Browser Hijacker applications like fluey.com do not use sophisticated and technologically complex tricks to spread around the web. Instead they rely on good ol’ fashioned lies, misdirection and guile – that is instead of trying to beat your computer’s defenses they try to trick you into installing them with the absolute authority you have as an user.
- The most common way through which this is done is via what we refer to as program bundles. A program bundle is an installer for one program – very often freeware or shareware – that is modified in a way to also include a number of other programs. If you follow the Default installation path you’ll get the main program from the installer, but you’ll also receive all additional extras included and those could very well be malicious or annoying applications like fluey.com. To avoid that please always select Advanced installation option on every program you are installing. It only takes a couple of more seconds, but you’ll actually be able too see where and what exactly is about to get installed and you can also block all additional programs in the bundle and still get the main one. We advise you to block all such programs from installing – they might look innocent on the surface, but this may very well be a trap.
- Additional ways for fluey.com to have been installed include through another Browser Hijacker application on your computer, through an email attachment file or through an advertisement on a random website.
- Torrents and online storage sites can be particularly dangerous, because they often display multiple download buttons of which only one is real – the rest are fakes. A fake button will still ready a file for download and this file may be named according to what you searched for, but the contents will be an Browser Hijacker or worse.
Don’t click on the Ads and don’t download anything prompted by fluey.com
Experts classify fluey.com as a low threat malicious software as it does no direct harm to your PC. This does not mean that is harmless.

Remember that nothing good will come out of fluey.com – so it’s best if you close/ignore it until it is removed from your machine. We hope that the fluey co to jest question is sufficiently answered, not it’s high time we begin the removal procedure.
