Favicon Remove lpmxp2129.com pop-up virus (Uninstall Guide)
22 Aug 2014, 8:03 pm
Lpmxp2129.com is a potentially dangerous website that may distribute adware and potentially unwanted programs (PUPs). The file Setup.exe has been seen being distributed by the following URL http://www.lpmxp2129.com/.../Setup.exe, published by Digital Plugin S.l. Detection ratio: 12 / 55. It has been detected as malware by multiple anti-virus engines, for example a variant of a variant of Win32/SoftPulse.J, TR/Dropper.Gen, Socrydo, Win32:PUP-gen [PUP]. I am willing to make a bet that if you've had your computer hijacked by lpmxp2129.com you're probably worried, annoyed, stressed or uncertain. Or all of those things. With so many different types of malware out there it can be tricky to know what will happen to your computer, your operating system, your bank account or even your identity. Viruses and malware affect millions of people worldwide and most of us have been affected by them at some time. Protection is paramount, especially in this increasingly sophisticated era of malware and that's exactly why you need a reputable anti-malware software program. The single best safety guard against, not only malware and viruses, but against things like adware, Potentially Unwanted Programs that causes lpmxp2129.com pop-ups on your computer too.

Here's an example of a www.lpmxp2129.com pop-up claiming that your Video Player might be outdated. The web page then automatically downloads file Setup.exe on your computer. If you keep getting a similar pop-up as well then your computer is infected with adware.


But installing any old anti-malware won't do. You should make sure it's not only a decent one from one of the big brands but that it is always up-to-date too. Having said that it's always good to get into the habit of knowing exactly what you do and don't want on your PC. That way if you get the feeling that your PC is running sluggishly or acting 'weird' you can check it out sooner rather than later before it causes more problems than are necessary.

Lpmxp2129.com virus installs itself in a number of ways although the most popular method deployed is via free software downloads. Many viruses leave you vulnerable to attack from annoying adware and they all love the good old unwanted pop-up ads! If you've been infected by this adware virus you'll know just how enraging those endless pop-up windows are, while your unwanted extension will have dispensed with your original one and will keep redirecting you to websites of its own choice.

Lpmxp2129.com comes bundled with PUPs. Technically speaking, PUPs are not actually viruses but they are very likely something you don't want on your computer and will want to delete it as soon as possible. As well as hijacking your browser, a PUP may make using your laptop a slow and tedious process.

So it's probably fair to say that you don't want a Potentially Unwanted Program on your computer so how do you stop it from happening? Because PUPs are normally installed when you download programs, software or videos you should ensure that you only download what you actually need and not some 'special offer' that has been stealth bundled with it.

All of us need or want to download programs, software and applications on a pretty regular basis and so the trick is to take a few moments to carefully read the EULA – the end user license agreement and not just click 'OK' when you're downloading something. Any check boxes relating to a PUP might have been pre-checked so make sure that you uncheck them if you don't want the add-on.

As I mentioned above, it can't be overstated how important it is not only pay attention but to also have a good anti-malware software running on your PC. Install it, run it and make sure there is nothing unwanted hiding on your computer. To remove lpmxp2129.com virus from your computer, please follow the steps in the removal guide below. If you have any questions, please leave a comment down below. Good luck and be safe online!

Favicon Remove Ads by PicRec (Uninstall Guide)
22 Aug 2014, 7:38 pm
PicRec is a potentially unwanted program that will hijack your web browser and display pop-up ads. Potentially Unwanted Programs – or PUPs for short - are a nuisance and despite the fact that they have the word potentially in their title this is more of a get out clause for the developers and not something that tells you that you probably do want them. Please use this guide to remove PicRec ads and any associated malware.

It's fair to say that the majority of PicRec ads have less of the 'potentially' and considerably more of the 'unwanted' about them. Quite simply they aren't of much use. In addition to this there is the fact that any program that installs itself on your machine without your knowledge or by underhand means is probably up to no good. Otherwise, why go to all that trouble? It's certainly fair to say that PUPs are not as malicious as spyware, for example, but how are we to really know, as the unwitting recipient, what the developers really intend to use their program for? Chances are it's not just about gifting you with a browser extension.

Ads by PicRec:


How did PicRec infiltrate my PC?

More often than not you'll end up with PicRec on your computer when you've downloaded some other software. Potentially Unwanted Programs are pretty sly and are usually bundled surreptitiously with another program. This program may be from a well known software developer or it could be a free Internet game. Regardless, whatever it is, you need to be careful when you're downloading.

If your MO when downloading and installing software is to click install and then bash away at the 'OK' or 'Next' buttons until your installation is complete then you need to stop doing that right now! While no one (certainly not me) is going to argue with you that End User License Agreements (EULAs) are interesting, it is in fact here where you need to exercise a little due care and attention.

Developers of both PicRec and malware know that's how the majority of people install software and they're exploiting our slap dash attitudes.

But License Agreements are boring!

Be honest: could that be the reason why you're reading this? Because you've been infected by a Potentially Unwanted Program? License Agreements are boring, yes, but even more boring than that is constantly being directed to websites you don't want to visit – and trying to get rid of the PicRec ads.

I'm sorry but there really is no way around it: you need to know what you're downloading onto your PC. But surely my anti-virus will stop them in their tracks, you cry! Well, it doesn't work like that because PUP and adware developers are well aware that their programs are potentially unwanted. That's why they install their program through stealth methods – hoping that you either won't care that you have a new browser or will enjoy using their tool bar instead of, say Google's!

How does reading the License Agreement help?

Most PicRec variants are packaged with other software however PUP developers kind of take offence to being called malware, so many of them mention their presence in the EULA. And that's why you should read it!

To remove PicRec ads from your computer, please follow the steps in the removal guide below. If you have questions, please leave a comment down below. I will be more than happy to help you. Good luck and be safe online!

Favicon "You are currently using an old operative system" Pop-up Removal Guide
21 Aug 2014, 6:47 pm
"You are currently using an old operative system and your player might be outdated" pop-up ad will show up if your computer has been infected with a potentially unwanted program. Most of the time, fake pop-ups say that you need to update your video player, Flash player, Java, and in this case your 'operative' system. I bet scammers had 'operating' system in mind rather than 'operative' which suggest that they are not native English speakers. Anyway, there are so many different types of malware with curious sounding names out there that it can often be tempting to ignore them and not take the time to find out whether we should actually be concerned about them. But to be forearmed is to be forewarned, as the old saying goes, and in all honesty, the more you know about malicious software and other Internet nasties, the better.

Let's use Potentially Unwanted Programs – or PUPs – as an example. Chances are you've come across these before, even if you didn't realize that's what they're actually called! Ever found that a new tool bar has suddenly appeared on your computer? Or how about a new tab page which sends you to websites you don't want to visit? If you're nodding and saying 'yes' right now, then you've had a Potentially Unwanted Program installed on your PC.


What are Potentially Unwanted Programs? A PUP is an annoying program which has been downloaded onto your computer, tablet or other device without you giving it permission, or actually really knowing about it at all. So what makes it potentially unwanted instead of totally unwanted? Well, it might be unwanted because you really don't need it; let's say it's offering you the aforementioned tool bar or home page, or perhaps it's presenting itself as an alternative to your anti-virus software. Please note that if you are getting "You are currently using an old operative system and your player might be outdated" pop-ups then your computer is infected with PUP/adware and very likely more than one.

PUPs also ramp up the annoyance factor through their usage of pop-up adverts and other applications that you simply have no interest in. Not fun to deal with when you have a deadline to meet or you're just trying to relax with a spot of online shopping.

Why didn't my anti-virus software stop a PUP from being installed on my PC? Firstly, it's great that you're using an anti-virus – you'd be surprised how many people leave themselves unprotected when they're connected to the Internet. But more importantly, you want to know how and why you still have a Potentially Unwanted Program installed on your machine. The problem is caused by the fact that most anti-virus or anti-malware programs are not able to identify PUPs. So, regardless of you having a dependable anti-virus program running on your machine which hasn't let you down in the past, you are still vulnerable to PUPs.

But why, you're dying to know. What's the problem? The problem is because your anti-virus software doesn't see a Potentially Unwanted Program as a threat. All it is is unwanted and only potentially unwanted at that. Being unwanted doesn't make something malware or a virus. In the majority of cases, a PUP is just an alternative (albeit not usually very good!) tool bar or browser. The fact that it has a use that is legitimate means that potentially there are people who would actually find it useful and keep it installed.

And it is precisely this fact that because a Potentially Unwanted Program falls into this decidedly gray area that your hard working anti-virus software finds it virtually impossible to apprehend and delete it.

To remove "You are currently using an old operative system and your player might be outdated" pop-up from your computer, please follow the steps in the removal guide below. If you have any questions, please leave a comment down below. Good luck and be safe online!

Favicon How to Remove EnjoyyCoupon Ads (Uninstall Guide)
21 Aug 2014, 6:17 pm
EnjoyyCoupon is a potentially unwanted program that will display ads on your computer. Whether you've heard of 'Potentially Unwanted Programs' (PUPs) or not, chances are quite high that you may have been infected by one – or more - at some point. Not sure? If you've ever logged onto your computer only to find that you have a new search engine, browser, home page or tool bar then – congratulations – you've been PUP-ed! The EnjoyyCoupon PUP/adware goes one step further by modifying your web browser and adding additional menu items to contextual menu. Please use this guide to remove EnjoyyCoupon ads and any associated malware.

Ads by EnjoyyCoupon displayed on the top of organic Google search results.


But don't worry, it's happened to the best of us and you're certainly not alone in logging on only to end up completely bewildered as to why your search engine keeps directing you to random websites that you don't want to visit.

And no matter if you're talking about a tool bar, browser or home page, a Potentially Unwanted Program is exactly that: unwanted. So if you didn't download EnjoyyCoupon, it begs the question – who did and how did it get there – especially if you have anti-virus software running on your machine?

So my anti-virus let me down? Well actually, no. As much as it may look like your anti-virus has been slacking off, it's not actually to blame. Potentially Unwanted Programs like EnjoyyCoupon are devious little things. So take a moment and think back to the moment you noticed that new contextual menu or home page – and now ask yourself if you downloaded any software just before that.

So, this is generally how a PUP works. It's true that some Potentially Unwanted Programs are pop-up windows or adverts and will send you in the direction of the website they're advertising but the majority of them are usually hidden and bundled with other programs.

So now you're saying it's the software's fault? We get it; you know what you're downloading and you trust it! Well, sorry to break it to you but even some of the biggest guys in the software industry package PUPs with their programs. Take for example Skype or Adobe Reader; chances are if you're installing or upgrading one of these you might also be downloading a not particularly useful tool bar along with it.

So how do you check whether your download – reputable or otherwise – has been packaged with a little added extra: EnjoyyCoupon adware/PUP? Next time you download something and you're just about to blindly click all those 'OK' buttons so you can race to the end of the downloading process and get your software – stop for a moment. This is when you're likely to end up with a PUP on your PC. Most Potentially Unwanted Programs are given a nod to in the License Agreement and should have a check box alongside giving you the ability to opt out. However you do need to watch out as the wording may be ambiguous and opt-in boxes may have already been ticked. We told you PUPs were devious!

It's sneaky for sure, but to be fair to the developers we really should have 'read the small print'. So there you have it: if you have ever been infected by EnjoyyCoupon or an unwanted home page, search engine or tool bar then you're probably at fault and next time you might want to pay a little more attention to your License Agreements!

To remove this adware from your computer, please follow the steps in the removal guide below. If you have questions, please leave a comment down below. I will be more than happy to help you. Good luck and be safe online!

Favicon Remove "Meteoroids" Adware (Virus Removal Guide)
21 Aug 2014, 5:05 pm
Today we're taking a closer look at what Meteoroids adware is, more specifically, how it affects your computer and how it infects you in the first place. Please use this guide to remove Meteoroids ads and any associated malware.

Adware is often spoken of in the same breath as spyware and although they are closely related they do have certain intrinsic differences. Whilst both are types of malware – or malicious software - adware is, in the majority of cases, not as nasty as spyware. Having said that, you probably don't want Meteoroids on your machine and if you have been infected by it, you really should remove it as quickly as possible. Therefore it goes without saying that you should do all you can to defend yourself against it as well.


The difference between adware and spyware

Both adware and spyware monitor your browsing habits and watch what you're doing and which sites you're visiting when you're online. However they do this for rather different reasons.

Meteoroids is interested in what you're looking at because the developers want to be able to customize the adverts that they display on your PC to your tastes and interests. This obviously ups the chance of you clicking on them and spending some money. It's annoying as hell, especially pop-up ads and highlighted words in web pages, but those ads are not malicious. Please note that they can redirect you to misleading websites or services, so better do not click them.

Meteoroids is used to recoup the money spent developing freeware or shareware downloads and software that are available on the Internet for you to use for free. As a matter of fact, you probably got it after installing some kind of freeware program on your computer. Most if the time, this adware comes bundled with freeware.

Spyware, however, monitors what you are doing for less innocuous reasons. Spyware often includes a component called a keylogger which tracks and records which keys you are pressing, subsequently using this data to the develope's own end. Naturally this is cause for concern as the keys you hit will include confidential information including bank details, passwords and log in details.

Issues with adware

Apart from the fact it monitors you, the problem with Meteoroids, is that it can be extremely annoying. After all, if you're in the middle of working, booking a holiday or trying to download your favorite TV show the last thing you want to do is to keep clicking to get rid of endless pop-up windows. But this aside, adware will also adversely affect the performance of your PC, causing it to run far slower than before. It will cause your Internet to slow right down and make websites take ages to load, or crash. The reason for this is your machine now has the adware component running on it and is also using your Internet connection to send the data its collected about you back to its server.

How does Meteoroids get on your PC?

As mentioned it is often bundled with freeware and shareware and whilst there are plenty of useful free programs out there it is well worth your while deciding how badly you really want them. If you definitely do need a freebie, check the License Agreement carefully as legitimate adware will be mentioned somewhere in the small print. You can then uncheck the box to say you don't want to also download the adware, or click away from the program. Unfortunately spyware isn't so forthcoming and won't be mentioned. But that is a whole other story and we'll save that for another time.

To remove this adware from your computer, please follow the steps in the removal guide below. If you have questions, please leave a comment down below. I will be more than happy to help you. Good luck and be safe online!

Favicon Remove Plus-HD Ads Virus (Uninstall Guide)
19 Aug 2014, 9:21 pm
If you're wondering what Plus-HD adware program is, this is the article for you. Read on and we'll take a look in clear terms what an adware program – or advertisement-supported software - is and does. Please use this guide to remove Plus-HD ads and any associated malware.

An adware program, or simply, adware, much as the name suggests, is something which displays adverts either within a program running on your computer, or on your actual PC itself. In this case it displays Plus-HD ads within your web browser, could be Chrome, Firefox or any other. There are many different variants of this adware, for instance "Ads by Plus-HD-V1.1" or "Powered by Plus-HD-V1.9c". Ads are typically displayed on web pages without any specific filtering. You can get ads in Youtube and on your local weather newspaper websites, it doesn't really matter. The goal is to deliver as many ads as possible on infected computers. Please note that some of those ads are very misleading and may even redirect you to dodgy websites.

Ads by Plus-HD-V1.1


Powered by Plus-HD-V1.9c


Is adware malicious?

Just because a program is adware it does not mean that it has been designed specifically to cause you harm. In actual fact there are plenty of programs that are lawful or genuine and will display advertisements when you're online without doing you any damage. One example of this would be online games.

A legitimate program, such as a game, displaying adverts is clearly doing so for marketing purposes. This may be in order to generate revenue for the adware's developer or it might be to promote another software program that they have created. Whilst adware can often be annoying to deal with when it keeps popping up on your screen, this does benefit the end user because the developer will allow you to download the software for free. The adverts that are displayed within that piece of software are designed to cover the program’s development costs – it’s simply an alternative way of generating more income.

Oftentimes the program will include the option to switch to an advert free version in which case you will normally be asked to pay to register the software, or upgrade your version. An authentic and non malicious software adware program should normally display an End User License Agreement too and this will state what the advert situation is and how they will be displayed when using the software. A legitimate program will also cease showing you adverts should you decide to uninstall the program and remove it from your PC.

So what about Plus-HD adware?

At the other end of the scale, however, we have a far less innocent form of adware and one that is more akin to malware – or malicious software. You may also hear this described as a PUP, or a Potentially Unwanted Program. The difference is that malware associated Plus-HD displays adverts on your device without telling you about it or asking for your permission. These types of adware programs also make it much trickier for you to uninstall them - so that they will continue to earn a stream of revenue via their ads for as long as possible. For example, Plus-HD may be listed as a completely different program, let's say CinemaPlus or it may not be listed at all. Some variants install malicious browser extensions and do not leave any other traces in Program Files and Control Panel.

How is adware installed?

Normally this malicious strain of adware is installed on your PC in one of two ways. Firstly, the Plus-HD adware may pretend to be something harmless and will trick you into downloading and installing it. Once you've done that you'll find all it does is besiege you with adverts. Secondly it may be installed without you knowing about it due to gaps in your PC's Windows or software security. You may also come across the aforementioned Potentially Unwanted Program style adware which is usually bundled with a free program.

Favicon Remove lpmxp2087.com pop-up virus (Uninstall Guide)
2 Aug 2014, 6:42 pm
Lpmxp2087.com is a potentially dangerous website that may distribute adware and potentially unwanted programs (PUPs). The file Setup.exe has been seen being distributed by the following URL http://www.lpmxp2087.com/.../Setup.exe. It has been detected as malware by multiple anti-virus engines, for example a variant of Win32/SoftPulse.H, Win32:Malware-gen, Socrydo, Generic.328 pay-per install. I am willing to make a bet that if you've had your computer hijacked by lpmxp2087.com you're probably worried, annoyed, stressed or uncertain. Or all of those things. With so many different types of malware out there it can be tricky to know what will happen to your computer, your operating system, your bank account or even your identity. Viruses and malware affect millions of people worldwide and most of us have been affected by them at some time. Protection is paramount, especially in this increasingly sophisticated era of malware and that's exactly why you need a reputable anti-malware software program. The single best safety guard against, not only malware and viruses, but against things like adware, Potentially Unwanted Programs that causes lpmxp2087.com pop-ups on your computer too.

Here's an example of a www.lpmxp2087.com pop-up claiming that your Video Player might be outdated. The web page then automatically downloads file Setup.exe on your computer. If you keep getting a similar pop-up as well then your computer is infected with adware.


But installing any old anti-malware won't do. You should make sure it's not only a decent one from one of the big brands but that it is always up-to-date too. Having said that it's always good to get into the habit of knowing exactly what you do and don't want on your PC. That way if you get the feeling that your PC is running sluggishly or acting 'weird' you can check it out sooner rather than later before it causes more problems than are necessary.

Lpmxp2087.com virus installs itself in a number of ways although the most popular method deployed is via free software downloads. Many viruses leave you vulnerable to attack from annoying adware and they all love the good old unwanted pop-up ads! If you've been infected by this adware virus you'll know just how enraging those endless pop-up windows are, while your unwanted extension will have dispensed with your original one and will keep redirecting you to websites of its own choice.

Lpmxp2087.com comes bundled with PUPs. Technically speaking, PUPs are not actually viruses but they are very likely something you don't want on your computer and will want to delete it as soon as possible. As well as hijacking your browser, a PUP may make using your laptop a slow and tedious process.

So it's probably fair to say that you don't want a Potentially Unwanted Program on your computer so how do you stop it from happening? Because PUPs are normally installed when you download programs, software or videos you should ensure that you only download what you actually need and not some 'special offer' that has been stealth bundled with it.

All of us need or want to download programs, software and applications on a pretty regular basis and so the trick is to take a few moments to carefully read the EULA – the end user license agreement and not just click 'OK' when you're downloading something. Any check boxes relating to a PUP might have been pre-checked so make sure that you uncheck them if you don't want the add-on.

As I mentioned above, it can't be overstated how important it is not only pay attention but to also have a good anti-malware software running on your PC. Install it, run it and make sure there is nothing unwanted hiding on your computer. To remove lpmxp2087.com virus from your computer, please follow the steps in the removal guide below. If you have any questions, please leave a comment down below. Good luck and be safe online!

Favicon Remove FBI Cybercrime Moneypak Virus (Uninstall Guide)
2 Aug 2014, 5:57 pm
There are two variants of the FBI Cybercrime Moneypak virus: one that locks your computer and another that simply hijacks or blocks your web browsers. The first one is obviously more dangerous because it can damage Windows files and if the removal process goes wrong you may even lose your files. To learn more about it, please read how to remove FBI MoneyPak ransomware. The second one is not exactly a virus. It's a browser hijacker that uses JavaScript functions to block your web browser. The scam web page title says: "FBI. ATTENTION! Your browser has been blocked up for safety reasons listed below. All the actions performed on this PC are fixed. All your files are encrypted. Conducted audio and video." Then goes the scam page with all the fancy logos and false allegations, mostly about illegal sexual stuff that you supposedly watched or downloaded. Please use this guide to remove FBI Cybercrime Moneypak virus and any associated malware.

FBI Cybercrime Moneypak virus is Internet fraud that tries to trick you into paying $300 or more to get your files back that weren't even encrypted in the first place. It can also fool you in to paying for fraudulent file encryption program. Such internet frauds are rogue because they appear in regular Internet search engines, as well advertising themselves on social networks. FBI Cybercrime Moneypak virus falls under the malware umbrella thanks to its deliberately misleading nature. And because of this you should definitely protect yourself with genuine antivirus software.


There are so many online threats that it can get confusing knowing what's real and what isn't. So when one program is pretending to be a genuine version of another, how on earth do you tell the difference?

And herein lies the problem; because fake FBI Cybercrime Division scam disguises itself as a REAL FBI warning. However, it's pretty obvious that The FBI doesn't block browsers. If you were really watching and sharing something illegal, the FBI would show up and arrest you and confiscate every internet enabled device on your property. And they certainly would not warn you in advance or ask you to go Walmart and buy Moneypak voucher.

So how do fake FBI Cybercrime Moneypak web pages trick you in the first place? Surely they're easy to spot? Well, no not always – these guys are very good at what they do. A fake warning page will display a message warning you that you have a virus on your machine or you're infected by spyware or like in this case, you watched or downloaded illegal stuff. However, the reality is that these do not exist.

Other FBI scam has an element of a Trojan horse infection to it. For example it may install a new browser page, a toolbar, a screensaver – and yes, a 'free' service that scans for viruses.

So how does this FBI Cybercrime Moneypak virus find its way on to your computer in the first place? It may be attached to an infected email or PDF viewers for one and once you've clicked that link or opened that document, the malware will install itself and then get to work sending you fake alerts. It may be also promoted on various social networks and adult websites. Users are usually redirected to fake FBI warnings through numerous proxy websites to avoid instant detection.

Another scenario is that you may encounter a banner advert or pop-up box that tells you that your files are enctrypted. Of course cyber crooks are playing on your insecurities and will then try and scare you into paying for your own freedom. Naturally they'll then attempt to convince you to pay the biggest sum of money. It could be even $1000 but usually they are fine with $300.

OK, so how do you remove the FBI Cybercrime Moneypak virus? If it's the first variant, use the removal guide here. If it's a variant that blocks your web browser then follow the steps in the removal guide below. It shouldn't be very difficult. All you have to do is simply force your web browser to close and then reset all settings. If you are using Chrome, you can even use Chrome's built-in task manager. It will instantly close all problematic tabs and you won't have to close other tabs. If you are using Firefox or Internet Explorer you will have to force close them using Windows Task Manager or restart your computer.

If you have any questions, please leave a comment down below. Good luck and be safe online!

Favicon iStartSurf Virus Removal Help
30 Jul 2014, 10:29 pm
Browser hijacking is both an annoying and a dangerous problem that can plague internet users. If your home page, search engine and new tab page have been hijacked by iStartSurf, it's fair to say that your computer is infected. Please use this guide to remove iStartSurf virus and any associated malware.

What is browser hijacking and what happens to your computer if you've been attacked? Browser hijacking actually encompasses a number of different malicious software programs (known as malware for short) but it is generally agreed that browser hijacking software is an external code that changes your web browser settings without your knowledge or, as far as you were aware, your permission.


You log onto your computer, open the internet and the first thing you see is your home page - your PC's standard page, a search engine or your favorite news channel. When you search or browse for something online you use a search engine – usually Google, Yahoo or Bing. Furthermore if you visit a website that's broken or has been removed you will see an error page. When iStartSurf hijacks your web browser you won't see your usual start page. You will see http://www.istartsurf.com instead. What is more, it will hijack your web browser's shortcut file by modified Target command line so that every time you open up your web browser your home page will be redirected to istartsurf.com. The same thing happens when you open a new tab page. In order to remove it completely from your computer you will have to clean shortcuts as well.

What browser hijacking means is that the person responsible for it will decide how your home page should look and how your browser works and is configured. Let's say you want to search directly from the omnibox or the address bar, you will be redirected to istartsurf.com instead of Google or any other search engine of your choice. Not only it's very annoying but also rather unethical practice. However, I wouldn't blame only those who created the so-called iStartSurf virus. Since this browser hijacker comes bundled with other software most of the time, there's a good chance you haven't read the end user license agreement and agreed to install 'extras' which are very often toolbars or browser hijackers. So, next time be more careful, even when download and installing software from reputable websites. This browser hijacker is distributed using fake Google Chrome update web pages. A fake web page claims that your browser is outdated and that you need to download the latest version in order to browser the net safely. The malicious files is called google_chrome.exe. It is detected as DomainIQ, SoftPulse and Smart Secure Software by multiple anti-virus engines. The file digitally signed by Smart Secure Software S.I. By the way, if you run this installer iStartSurf won't be the only malware you will get. You will also install adware called Cosstminn and Wajam.


Why would someone want to hijacker your web browser? Firstly they may want to direct you to a website of their choosing – either to generate traffic or revenue. Secondly – and more worryingly they may install spyware on your PC. Spyware, as the name suggests, spies upon your internet activity. It monitors which websites you visit and other browsing habits. At best this is so the programmers can tailor their adverts to you hence increasing the chances of you clicking and/or purchasing.

So how do you stop yourself becoming a victim of hijacking? Unfortunately nothing can guarantee that but there are precautions you can take: most importantly make sure you have reputable antivirus software installed on your computer, secondly never click on links in spam emails and third always check the 'small print' when you're downloading software or information from the internet and make sure you uncheck any boxes that casually mention that 'this software also comes with a tool bar' or other 'extra (unwanted!) bonus'. To remove iStartSurf from your computer, please follow the removal guide below. If you have any questions, please leave a comment down below. Good luck and be safe online!

Favicon Remove Astromenda Search Virus (Uninstall Guide)
29 Jul 2014, 8:28 pm
Astromenda Search (astromenda.com) is a potentially unwanted search engine that comes bundled with freeware downloads. Astromenda Search virus is what most users usually say when they get infected with this potentially unwanted program. Most users think that it wants them to use it as a default search engine so it can phish for information. Another thing that allows us to think it's a potentially unwanted application - it might be very difficult to get rid of it. I'm not sure if they are doing this on purpose or not but there might be very difficult to restore some changes made to your web browser. I hope it's just a bug rather than a clever technique made to protect this browser hijacker from being removed. Once installed, it hijacks your web browser, changes default search engine and home page to astromenda.com. There's no logo but the whole interface is very similar to Google Search, so most people thing it's basically the same Google search except that cyber crooks use their own domain in order to gather information about browsing habits and search terms. In fact it redirects users to Yahoo search engine page. So, it's just a pseudo search engine. There's also a browser extension called Astromenda New Tab that is used to achieve these goals. Please use this guide to remove Astromenda Search virus and any associated malware.


Astromenda Search comes bundled with legitmate software and adware. It's also promoted in various other ways, for example through the use of pay-per-install networks and even shady online streaming and download websites. Some of those website are completely fake while others could be even well known websites but with a poor ad management. The problem is, in part, that no matter how much investigation we might do into the subject, we will probably never know exactly what the intentions of these online parasites and annoyances actually are. Let's imagine you've decided to download a piece of software – a common occurrence - but you suspect that the third party website that it's available on is less than legit. However you know that millions of people the world over use this particular software on a daily basis. So how do you discern whether or not you should download your software? Firstly you should only download from the publisher's own site.

Secondly, if like me, you can vividly remember not knowing too much at all about IT, you may also remember that the people you asked for help and advice when downloading something, would tell you to simply start the download and then click all the 'OK' boxes until the download was done. Well, I'm sorry to say that if you're still in the habit of doing this, then those people have a lot to answer for! It is precisely this bad habit that will see you winding up with a Potentially Unwanted Program (or worse – malware) on your PC. Please be very careful when installing downloading software, even from the official websites because nowadays many software developers allow their programs to be bundled with other software. Otherwise, you may simply end up with Astromenda Search or some other PUP on your computer. It could be even a browser hijacker or a fake registry cleaner.

Trust me, I hear you - End User License Agreements are boring! But the point is that less than scrupulous software programs have more often than not been created to make someone some money. And these guys know that many of us don't pay any attention when we're downloading - and they're capitalizing on it.

No, you're right, it would be a lax malware publisher who advertised his intentions like that, but what you may not know is that the producers of Potentially Unwanted Programs quite often do. And that is why you should always read License Agreements!

Those responsible for foisting Astromenda Search virus onto us know that in the majority of cases we won't want their program (hence the fact that PUPs are usually bundled with legitimate software or tempting downloads such as torrents, free games, mp3s, movies and wallpapers) but they are often referred to in download agreements. This way the publishers cannot claim to be doing anything wrong.

The problem is that this referral or acknowledgement may not be terribly clear or obvious, and you may find that the wording is ambiguous or that you have to carefully check or uncheck any number of boxes in order to get the right combination that stops the PUP download. And that is why when you download something you should always check the agreement carefully and read between the lines. It's time to stop clicking 'OK, OK, OK' and to start protecting your computer from potentially unwanted programs. To remove Astromenda Search from your computer, please follow the steps in the removal guide below. If you have any questions, please leave a comment down below. Good luck and be safe online!

Favicon Remove TheTorntv V10 Ads (Uninstall Guide)
26 Jul 2014, 9:13 pm
With so many different viruses and Internet parasites to contend with, it's no wonder it can be a little confusing trying to work out what everything is – and more importantly, what sort of damage they can inflict on you. I've found a few websites saying that TheTorntv V10 is a virus but actually is not. Let's get down to it: what is it? What affect can it have on your computer? How does it get there in the first place? How you can avoid installing it? And, crucially, how do you get rid of it? Please use this guide to remove "Ads by TheTorntv V10" and any associated malware.

Here's an example of Ads by TheTorntv V10.


If you've ever wondered what the difference between adware, greyware, spyware, viruses and malware is, you're in the right place. Furthermore if you've heard of Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs) and are not sure what the deal is with those either, read on as we will hopefully be able to enlighten you. Most DLL file of this program are detected as ADWARE/CrossRider.Gen2, a variant of Win64/Toolbar.Crossrider.F, PUP.Optional.TornTV.A by multiple anti-virus engines. It's pretty obvious that it's an unwanted program. Most AVs say it's adware. While others say it's a PUP. However, none of them detect it as virus, malware or spyware. it's very important to understand the difference because some sites will try to scare you into thinking that TheTorntv V10 adware and the ads you get are very dangerous. Yes, they might be but they can not steal your passwords, etc.

Are viruses, adware, spyware, malware and greyware the same thing? It's a good question but while there are some similarities between the five; they are all threats to your computer being the main one, spyware, viruses, greyware, malware and adware do have fundamental differences. But does that really matter? If these are the online bad guys, that's all we need to know surely? Well, actually it's not quite as simple as all that just a little bit of knowledge about each one will help you stay safer and defend yourself from attack.

Starting with the most obvious one: computer viruses. It can be tempting to lump everything 'bad' on the Internet as a virus, but as noted, there are differences. In the simplest terms, a virus is a self-replicating computer program. TheTorntv V10 adware cannot replicate itself, so it's clearly not a virus. In fact, viruses don't even have to be malicious – but the fact is that many are. Most computer viruses worm their way onto your PC by attaching themselves to a genuine program. A good anti-virus program should spot most viruses but as always, you should stay vigilant when downloading from the Internet.

Malware, short for 'malicious software' is an umbrella term that refers to anything and everything that has the ability to infect your computer. It encompasses adware, viruses and spyware, although Potentially Unwanted Programs are not considered to be malware as they usually announce their presence in the License Agreement or T's & C's when you're downloading from the Internet. We could say that TheTorntv V10 adware is party malware.

Unlike a virus, spyware is not self-replicating but make no mistake, this is a truly nasty piece of work! Spyware monitors your web browsing habits and can gather this information for use by a third party. You should also be aware of something called a key logger which records the keys you hit – i.e. what you type – so your usage can be monitored that way – and that includes your passwords and log in details. While TheTorntv V10 may gather some information about your browsing habits, like websites visited, etc., it's not a spyware program.

The difference between adware and other malware is that, like a PUP, you often will have consented to the adware being installed on your PC. Usually TheTorntv V10 is bundled with free software and once installed will inundate you pop-up and banner ads. In fact many Potentially Unwanted Programs are closely linked with adware.

This covers online nuisances that might be annoying but are not necessarily malicious. PUPs fall into this category. Because some people find Potentially Unwanted Programs useful the lines tend to be blurred. However if you want to stay completely safe online, you should do your best to avoid installing a PUP. And that means checking download T's & C's carefully, and not clicking on links or opening attachments in emails from unknown senders.

If you have questions, please leave a comment down below. I will be more than happy to help you. Good luck and be safe online!

Favicon Remove Cosstminn Ad Virus (Uninstall Guide)
25 Jul 2014, 5:59 pm
Let's get down to it: what is Cosstminn? What affect can it have on your computer? How does it get there in the first place? How you can avoid installing it? And, crucially, how do you get rid of it? Please use this guide to remove Cosstminn ads and any associated malware.

What exactly is Cosstminn?

Cosstminn is a software program created to show you adverts when you're browsing or working online. And whilst that in itself doesn't sound too bad – after all, we're exposed to advertising pretty much constantly in our daily lives – adware isn't just a form of Internet marketing, it can actually make your user experience a real pain in the behind when you're using your computer. Not only that but it could be causing you real harm too. We'll see how shortly.

Here's an example of an "Powered by Cosstminn" ad displayed on a web page:


Things Cosstminn can do:
  • It is able to change your browser, your home page and your search engine so it can redirect your web searches to sites that the adware publisher wants you to visit. Often these are simply websites that are illegal or X rated.
  • It may be packaged with spyware, which is just as nasty as it sounds. Spyware monitors your Internet usage so that it can a) customize the adverts it shows you to appeal to you, and b) in a worst case scenario it will install something called a keylogger on your machine which will monitor and record everything you type. Naturally many of our online interactions are personal – from emails to friends, colleagues or loved ones to bank information, passwords and log in details.
  • In addition to this, all the extra components that Cosstminn adware (and possibly spyware) have installed on your machine, mean you may well find that your computer is running a whole lot slower than usual as the malware is ticking away behind the scenes and rigorously dialing home to tell the publisher what it has found out about you.
How did Cosstminn get on my PC?

In the majority of cases Costmin is packaged with freeware or shareware – for example, a TV show, some music or a game. This is how adware creators generate revenue that enables them to pay for the future development or distribution of their free programs. You may also be attacked by adware if you accidently visit a website that's been infected by it.

I want to protect myself against adware!

The best thing you can do to defend yourself against Cosstminn is to install decent anti-adware and anti-virus programs on your computer. You should also be selective about what you download and don’t get suckered in by dubious looking websites or programs that appear to be too good to be true!

Removing Cosstminn

Unfortunately Cosstminn is usually difficult to remove but if you have been targeted you need to run your anti-virus and anti-malware and they should spot and remove the adware. Run them twice or even three times to be sure however. If after rebooting your computer the adware is still appearing you will probably need to take your PC to a computer store or repair center and get it professionally cleaned by an IT expert.

If you have questions, please leave a comment down below. I will be more than happy to help you. Good luck and be safe online!

Favicon iReview Ads Removal Guide
24 Jul 2014, 9:15 pm
If you want to find out a little more about iReview adware and you're wondering how these ads gets on to your computer, read on as we take a look. Please use this guide to remove iReview ads and any associated malware.

Most adware, including iReview – and other forms of malware - end up on your PC thanks to our habit of downloading freebies from the Internet. This is because adware is frequently bundled with freeware and shareware – i.e. the things that most of us like to download: TV series, music, videos and games etc. You may have even noticed in the past that after downloading free software you suddenly started seeing pop up adverts, banner ads or pop under windows – the ads that run behind the page you're looking at.

Here's an example of an ad by iReview adware. As you can see, it's completely misleading. The ad text:

"Media content may not display properly. Install Browser Updater Now."



iReview is also sometimes installed if you visit a website with lax security that has been targeted by adware producers.

Why does adware exist?

Adware exists because we can't resist free stuff! The people that create programs and software and don't charge for it need a way of recouping their programming costs, or even making a profit. How do they do that - by packaging adware with regular software.

Another way of generating money is to keep the iReview adware hidden for later. You've downloaded a program and are enjoying using it but once the free trial expires the adware will appear – and you'll have to pay to get an upgraded adware-free version.

Finding and deleting iReview

Whilst it's pretty easy to spot adware on your PC (hello pop up adverts!) unfortunately it can be trickier to find it and delete it. This is because the people that make adware don't want you to remove it – naturally – so they will create it so that it installs itself deep within your operating system. Luckily, however, there are programs that you can use to find and delete the adware. A quick online search will help but do bear in mind that a generous proportion of the search results are links that have been created by malware programmers who want to deceive you into downloading something even worse than adware.

Points to remember when searching for anti-malware software:
  • Do your research: talk to other computer users, people in your workplace or those who you perceive to be a little more Internet savvy than you may be
  • Read online forums and visit a known reputable IT provider, manufacturer or retailer's website
One thing you can do easily yourself is to check what's installed on your PC. You can do this by following the simple steps below:
  • Reboot your computer
  • Take a look at your start up list and if you see something you don't recognize, conduct a quick Internet search and figure out if you want to keep or delete it. Keep in mind that iReview can be bubdled with a different program and listed under completely different name
  • If you're not sure whether or not you need it and are worried about deleting something you may need once again it's a good idea to ask an expert or someone who knows computers – a friend, acquaintance or someone in your company’s IT department if you have one
If you have questions, please leave a comment down below. I will be more than happy to help you. Good luck and be safe online!

Favicon PassWizard Ads Removal Guide
23 Jul 2014, 9:09 pm
It's highly likely you've already heard of PassWizard adware and fairly likely you've been infected by it – I know I have! Perhaps you're concerned you may have it on your PC at the moment and would like to know what it could do. Please use this guide to remove PassWizard ads and any associated malware.

What is PassWizard?

It is a program which installs a component onto your PC or device that sends you adverts without your permission. These Ads by PassWizard may be pop-up windows or banners, and they're not only annoying but they can have repercussions too.


This adware can:
  • Interact and create problems with other programs installed on your computer, possibly disrupting your operating system which makes your CPU and Internet connection slow right down
  • It can also slow you down thanks to it adding websites to your bookmarks folder, thus using up a portion of your memory
  • Redirect you to websites you didn't want to visit – often sites of an adult or illegal nature. This could cause embarrassment or problems depending on your work or home environment
  • As already noted it enables pop-up, banner and pop-under adverts that are extremely irritating to deal with
  • Thanks to its issues and conflicts with other programs and its ability to make your computer run slowly, adware also puts your computer's security at risk as this can cause instability on your machine
One of the problems with PassWizard is that once installed, it hides itself so well that it can be difficult to firstly find, and secondly remove. Some adware is even so sneaky that it prevents you from accessing the places you need to visit so you can delete it!

How do I avoid getting infected by PassWizard?

There are steps you can take to reduce your risk of getting infected by adware. Here are the most important:
  • Install a known and trusted brand of anti-virus on your PC, run it often and keep it up to date – this is your first line of defence against all malware
  • Use pop-up blockers. Some browsers offer you the option of blocking pop-ups and tell you if the website you're visiting is asking you to enable them. You need to determine how much of a risk you think the website is.
  • Never download software from third party websites or sites you don't trust as programs are frequently packaged with adware.
  • When you do install something on your machine stop and think whether or not you really need it. If it's something reputable it should be fine but downloading something 'jokey' can be risky.
  • When closing pop-up window click the red 'X' in the corner and not 'OK' or 'Close' etc as if the pop-up is disreputable it may use the clickable button as a go-ahead to install more adware or even another more serious form of malware.
If you have questions, please leave a comment down below. I will be more than happy to help you. Good luck and be safe online!

Favicon "ShopnDrop" Ads Removal Guide
23 Jul 2014, 7:50 pm
If you are not particularly concerned about pop-ups and ads by shopndrop but have more recently heard the term 'spyware' used in the same sentence as adware then you may be wondering exactly what's going on and if you should start showing a little more concern over online adverts. Please use this guide to remove ShopnDrop ads and any associated malware.

ShopnDrop adware winds up on our PCs due to us having downloaded something from the Internet – in the majority of cases this will be something free. Most often Adware is bundled with shareware and freeware so if you're a regular (or even a fairly infrequent) downloader of TV series, music videos, games, wallpapers and emoticons, there is a likelihood of you downloading ShopnDrop too. Indeed, you may have already previously spotted a proliferation of pop-up and banner adverts when you've downloaded some free software.


Let's say you're the creator of a program or some software that you're giving away for free, you want to recoup your costs - or even make a profit. After all, you have to earn a living too, right? And you do this by packaging adware with your original program. The adware program then displays ads on pretty much every website you visit. In other words add a few more ads to those that were placed by website owner and what you have is a hard to navigate and read web page full of ads. It can be really frustrating.

Oftentimes programs will use ShopnDrop as a carrot. You'll be more than happy with your free program (of course – it was free!) but what happens after the inevitable free trial? You will probably be asked to pay to start using it, or an adware free version of it.

To be honest, it's pretty obvious – there's no mistaking all those pop up, banner and even pop under ads. (Pop under ads are the ones that 'appear' behind the screen you're looking at.) But even if you're not sure if what you're experiencing is adware or simply overzealous Internet marketing there are lots of programs you can use to identify and remove adware.

The key is to do your research when looking for anti-malware programs as some of the search results you see will be from disreputable programmers who will be trying to get you to click their links and visit websites which may have even more adware – or something more serious – embedded in them.

ShopnDrop can often be dismissed as annoying but ultimately harmless. Spyware however, possibly due to its scarier sounding name, is usually taken far more seriously. But the fact is that increasingly, adware comes packaged with spyware. If it didn't, how would the adware programmers know how to tailor make those adverts that pop-up on your computer screen? After all – you didn't think it was a coincidence that after browsing for vacations in South America earlier today, you’re now seeing adverts for hotel and flight websites.

Okay, so that could be deemed helpful on some levels. But it's not quite as innocent as it seems when you take into account that some spyware can log your key strokes and monitor what you're typing on your computer: and yes that does include your passwords, log in information and online banking details. Suddenly ShopnDrop adware doesn't seem quite so innocent does it?

If you have questions, please leave a comment down below. I will be more than happy to help you. Good luck and be safe online!

How do I know if a program on my computer is a Potentially Unwanted Program?

If you've logged on to your computer only to find that you have a new tool bar or your browser keeps trying to redirect you to websites that you don't want to go to, the chances are you have been infected with a Potentially Unwanted Program.


How can I remove the PUP.Optional.FrostwireTB.A?

The good news is that unlike some harsher strains of malware, PUPs like PUP.Optional.FrostwireTB.A are actually fairly simple to remove and you can do this quickly and easily in Window's Control Panel by choosing the Programs > Uninstall Programs option. Look for any programs you don't recognize and uninstall them if you do not want them.

How do I remove a Potentially Unwanted Program that keeps coming back?

Dealing with the PUP.Optional.FrostwireTB.A that refuses to leave you alone can be tricky. You might wind up needing professional help but there are a couple of things you can do even if you're not technically minded. The first and easiest thing to try is to restart your PC in Safe Mode and then run your anti-malware software. To start Safe Mode, press the F8 key when Windows starts – as soon as you hear your computer beep when you reboot it. If you detect a virus when in Safe Mode simply remove it like a normal virus before restarting your computer.

After that, run your anti-malware scan again in normal mode. If the infection was picked up on and deleted it should show as clean. However if the PUP.Optional.FrostwireTB.A still returns this could mean that it's accompanied by an undetected root kit or infected system file. Under these circumstances it is recommended that you seek professional advice – perhaps a local PC store, a trusted computer tech forum or other online expert.

How can I fully protect myself from PUP.Optional.FrostwireTB.A and other forms of malware?

There are a number of measures you can take to protect yourself from PUP.Optional.FrostwireTB.A, as well as from other forms of malware and viruses. The most important is having an up to date anti-malware program installed on your machine and running it regularly. You should also make sure that all software you have installed on your device is current with the latest patches as these will help stop malware and PUPs slipping through security loopholes. Crucially, protect yourself by never opening files or attachments or clicking on links from unknown and therefore, untrustworthy, sources.

So, in short, the message is clear – be vigilant when you're online and only download programs if you trust them and you trust the site that you are downloading from. PUPs may sound cute but cluttering up your computer with Potentially Unwanted Programs is not!

If you have questions, please leave a comment down below. I will be more than happy to help you. Good luck and be safe online!

Favicon Remove Deal Keeper Ads (Uninstall Guide)
23 Jul 2014, 6:14 pm
What is Deal Keeper?

Deal Keeper is an advertising-supported software, or adware for short, that displays online advertisements with the purpose of generating revenue for the developer. Whilst potentially a nice little money spinner for the programmer, adware generally only serves to be an annoyance for anyone who has been infected by it. It's from the same family as Yontoo adware. Please use this guide to remove Deal Keeper ads and any associated malware.

Here's an example of an "Ads by Deal Keeper" ad displayed on a web page.


How does Deal Keeper work?

Deal Keeper adverts work in one of two ways: they will either be in the format of a screen which you will be shown during installation, or they will be in the software's user interface. Adverts are both pop-up windows and banner ads. They also have the capability to monitor which websites you visit so that they can target the type of advertising they show you to what they perceive as your interests or tastes, depending on your browsing habits.

Who uses it?

Such adware is often used by software program developers to recoup the costs incurred during the development of a legitimate program. They will bundle, or package, the advertising with their existing program, which often enables them to provide their original software for a low price – or even for free. But adware isn't just the domain of bedroom programmers and these days it is increasingly becoming a popular means of advertising with legitimate businesses.

Is Deal Keeper considered to be spyware?

There is an ongoing debate whether or not Deal Keeper should be considered to be spyware or not. The general consensus is that if software is installed on a PC without the owner's permission or knowledge then it can be considered as spyware. However this remains a grey area with many developers and industry experts disagreeing about exactly what we, as the end users, should be told in relation to software that we're installing on our computers. Particularly in question is the EULA – the End User License Agreement – in which many forms of adware and Potentially Unwanted Programs are mentioned in the small print. But just because there is some, usually ambiguous, wording in this agreement stating that additional software is bundled with the main software, is that really adequate for the average end user to make an informed decision when to comes to deciding what they wish to install on their PC?

Is Deal Keeper considered to be malware?

Whilst Deal Keeper is usually mentioned in the same breath as other forms of malware, this too is a contentious issue with some classifying adware merely as 'irritating' yet others viewing it firmly as an online threat. It is probably fair to say that adware is not nearly as serious as a Trojan horse or a keylogger however if it is installed on your computer you could find that it is leaving you exposed to security risks and issues. This is because, innocuous-seeming adverts aside, the fact is that adware is still observing your online usage and gathering data about you – without your consent.

How do I protect myself from Deal Keeper?

Our advice, as always, is to install a decent anti-virus or specific anti-malware program. There are a number of reputable ones on the market, so find a trustworthy one, install it, and run it frequently. Also, check the End User License Agreement carefully and make sure you're not agreeing to install additional programs if you don't know what they are. It might be frustrating, and you no doubt just want to get to the end result and download what you're really after as quickly as possible, but if you want to avoid a PUP, it pays to take a minute or two more. If you have questions, please leave a comment down below. I will be more than happy to help you. Good luck and be safe online!

Favicon "App of the Day" Ads Removal Guide
22 Jul 2014, 7:19 pm
"App of the Day" ad text will be displayed at the bottom of each web page you visit:

App of the Day is a feature of Pet Match and uses visual search technology to find you relevant and related content from thousands of sites across the web. Just click on or hover over the orange InSite icon to open this window and discover related content. To disable this feature, click here. If you wish to share any feedback on this feature, contact us at feedback@similarproducts.net App of the Day

"App of the Day" ad. Click on image to enlarge.
The ad is usually displayed by a potentially unwanted program called PUP.Optional.Superfish.A or a web browser extension but there are many of them named differently so in your case it might be different as given in the removal guide below. Please use this guide to remove "App of the day" ads and any associated malware.

Needles to say, there are so many different types of viruses and malicious software out there that it is increasingly difficult to tell the difference and to know what each and every one does, and why it exists. From adware and spyware to Trojan horses and worms and from rogue anti-virus software to Potentially Unwanted Programs; it's a crowded market place out there in the world of malware - that much is certain. Injected ads are also being used by scammers. I'm sure you've already seen green underlined words that redirect to dodgy websites, etc. This is a new for of adware and PUP as well as the "App of the day" ads.

But let's take a closer look at just one of these online pests and parasites: Potentially Unwanted Programs – or PUPs to give them their abbreviated name. So what is a PUP and why is it merely 'potentially' unwanted and not out and out 'definitely' unwanted like the rest of its malware cousins?

As we've seen, PUP stands for Potentially Unwanted Program. The term was coined by the security technology experts, McAfee, as a way of describing undesired software. A Potentially Unwanted Program is not unlike malicious software in that it can, and often will, cause you issues once it has been installed on your PC. However the big difference with malware is that you give your consent to a PUP to be installed as opposed to it installing itself without your knowledge – like most malware.

The majority of Potentially Unwanted Programs are spyware or adware, including the "App of the day" adware. These programs definitely cause problems for you and will result in unwanted behavior on your machine. "App of the day" might simply display annoying pop-up adverts although others may be running processes in the background of your PC that result in it running sluggishly and slowly. The reason PUPs are 'Potentially Unwanted Programs' is an apt description for these very specific programs because you normally only realize that they have installed themselves on your computer and unleashed their irritating behavior upon you after the event.

So what made McAfee actually come up with the expression 'Potentially Unwanted Program'? The name was created so that any PUP style programs were not labeled as malware. This is because we, the users, actually give our consent to download and install them. Granted we usually don't know that we're installing a PUP but the fact is most License Agreements tell us when we are about to download one – however ambiguously that warning may be worded.

Generally though, most people view the term Potentially Unwanted Program as just another, rather vaguer world for malicious software because the majority of users – i.e. you and me – would rather remove "App of the day" as soon as we discover it on our PC. The problem is that PUPs are frequently installed at the same time because they are often bundled with genuine software that we do want meaning you need to watch out and be very careful when you’re downloading something. Check the End User License Agreement carefully and make sure you’re not agreeing to install additional programs if you don't know what they are. It might be frustrating, and you no doubt just want to get to the end result and download what you’re really after as quickly as possible, but if you want to avoid a PUP, it pays to take a minute or two more.

Favicon Www.lpmxp2040.com Virus Removal Guide
22 Jul 2014, 6:38 pm
Lpmxp2040.com is a potentially dangerous website that may distribute adware and potentially unwanted programs (PUPs). The file player_setup.exe has been seen being distributed by the following URL http://www.lpmxp2040.com/.../Player_Setup.exe. It has been detected as malware by multiple anti-virus engines, for example Generic.94A, TR/Dropper.Gen, PUA.DigiPlug, DomainIQ pay-per install. Please note that some anti-virus engines detect it as a Trojan dropper. I am willing to make a bet that if you've had your computer hijacked by lpmxp2040.com virus you're probably worried, annoyed, stressed or uncertain. Or all of those things. With so many different types of malware out there it can be tricky to know what will happen to your computer, your operating system, your bank account or even your identity. Viruses and malware affect millions of people worldwide and most of us have been affected by them at some time. Protection is paramount, especially in this increasingly sophisticated era of malware and that's exactly why you need a reputable anti-malware software program. The single best safety guard against, not only malware and viruses, but against things like adware, Potentially Unwanted Programs that causes lpmxp2040.com pop-ups on your computer too.

Here's an example of a www.lpmxp2040.com pop-up claiming that your Video Player might be outdated. The web page then automatically downloads file Player_Setup.exe on your computer. If you keep getting a similar pop-up as well then your computer is infected with adware.


But installing any old anti-malware won't do. You should make sure it's not only a decent one from one of the big brands but that it is always up-to-date too. Having said that it's always good to get into the habit of knowing exactly what you do and don't want on your PC. That way if you get the feeling that your PC is running sluggishly or acting 'weird' you can check it out sooner rather than later before it causes more problems than are necessary.

Lpmxp2040.com virus installs itself in a number of ways although the most popular method deployed is via free software downloads. Many viruses leave you vulnerable to attack from annoying adware and they all love the good old unwanted pop-up ads! If you've been infected by this adware virus you'll know just how enraging those endless pop-up windows are, while your unwanted extension will have dispensed with your original one and will keep redirecting you to websites of its own choice.

Lpmxp2040.com comes bundled with PUPs. Technically speaking, PUPs are not actually viruses but they are very likely something you don't want on your computer and will want to delete it as soon as possible. As well as hijacking your browser, a PUP may make using your laptop a slow and tedious process.

So it's probably fair to say that you don't want a Potentially Unwanted Program on your computer so how do you stop it from happening? Because PUPs are normally installed when you download programs, software or videos you should ensure that you only download what you actually need and not some 'special offer' that has been stealth bundled with it.

All of us need or want to download programs, software and applications on a pretty regular basis and so the trick is to take a few moments to carefully read the EULA – the end user license agreement and not just click 'OK' when you're downloading something. Any check boxes relating to a PUP might have been pre-checked so make sure that you uncheck them if you don't want the add-on.

As I mentioned above, it can't be overstated how important it is not only pay attention but to also have a good anti-malware software running on your PC. Install it, run it and make sure there is nothing unwanted hiding on your computer. To remove lpmxp2040.com virus from your computer, please follow the steps in the removal guide below. If you have any questions, please leave a comment down below. Good luck and be safe online!
