If you visit more than 3 popular websites in a Week, then your PC is probably already hacked
Recent research shows that 90% of U.S. home computers have been infected with spyware at some time. Further studies reveal that this was, primarily, as a result of ad-networks delivering malware-seeded ads to popular websites, which pass them along to a portion of the site’s visitors.
If your computer is acting funny and you are having trouble surfing the web like you normally would – especially when you run your web-browser, the process is dead-slow, sluggish and unresponsive – then mischievous ad-networks are probably sneaking malicious ads into your system without you suspecting anything.
These malware attacks have been stated to have infected over 250 million PCs in the past year using malicious code. These malicious online viruses are designed to hijack browsers to change the default search engine, and track your browsing, monitor your online activities and overwhelmingly serve you annoying pop-up ads while you’re surfing the net.
And as if all that isn’t enough, but more disturbingly, it was found that the malware also has the ability to remotely run any code on your computer, or download new malicious files. This could be, potentially, an instance of serious malware, disguised as something more trivial. And far worse is the fact that…
“…Advertising malware rates have tripled in the last year, according to report”
But the question now is how do you deal with this malware? And how can you protect yourself from these unsolicited ads that keep popping out of your browser and maim your internet experience?
The good news is that a 36-year-old active online shopper, Alicia, mistakenly stumbled on a solution to her pop up ads problem by using a very simple but extremely effective method that completely blocks and stop ads from popping out of her browsers whenever she’s online. Let’s listen to her and see how she did it.
“At that point, I was readily making plans to go back to my computer repairer,” said Alicia. “And that would be the fourth time I did”
“It’s just plainly annoying and frustrating. In fact, it got to a point where for every time I load or reload a page and click any area on the page – be it a button or a clear area – there would be an ad popping out of God knows where.”
“I really can’t tell how it happened or how it all started. And I don’t know if it was from a software I downloaded or a website I visited. All I know is that for the past 3 months it’s been difficult to browse peacefully without pop-ups on my computer.”
“In fact, at times, the ad completely covers and clogs up my computer screen.”
“My computer repairer has opened it up several times, installed several software with mumbo-jumbo names I’ve never heard of. And it’s been an internet version of hell for me.”
“This continued on till my boyfriend visited me and wanted to see football highlights and scores from one of those football sites. He sat at the computer, grab the mouse and clicked on Google Chrome.”
“After 60 seconds, he slightly smirks at me and inquired, ‘What the heck is wrong your system.’ And I just shrugged and continued staring at the screen.”
“After some quick searching, I found Ad Remover in the Google Chrome store. I saw that it had 5 stars and, being one of those people who uses 2 or more browsers, I was delighted to see that it also works on all of the other major browsers. It has completely eradicated all of the previous issues that were plaguing me and I cannot be happier.”
It’s that simple, if you really want to prevent your computer from annoying popping ads especially in the middle of your online browsing then an ad blocking software is your answer!
