Liansatrickth.info

Liansatrickth.info

Liansatrickth.info is an adware server, a website that may show ads from different sources. Our specialists say that this website needs to gain permission to show notifications first, which is why the site asks users to click the Allow button located on the pop-up that asks if they wish to see notifications. The problem is that the website proposes to click the mentioned button to continue and does not explain that you would also receive notifications. If you want to keep away from such content, we advise against clicking Allow. If you already did and want to eliminate Liansatrickth.info notifications, you could try our deletion steps available at the end of this article. To learn more about the adware server, you could read our full report. Read more »

News-back.best

News-back.best

Users who enter News-back.best might expect to receive news or other information. However, instead of news, they might see a blank website displaying a message that asks to click the Allow button. At the time we visited the site, it said that we need to click Allow to confirm that we are not robots. There is nothing wrong with asking to verify that visitors are not robots. However, such requests raise suspicion when the message that displays the Allow button does not ask to confirm anything but states that the website wants to show notifications. If you do not need such content, you should click Block instead of Allow. In case you clicked Allow hastily and not want to remove News-back.best notifications, we can offer our deletion steps available below this article. To learn more about the adware server, we recommend reading the text first. Read more »

Search Pro

Search Pro

You might have been introduced to Search Pro as a “search management extension” that, allegedly, can provide access to trending searches that are “carefully reviewed and selected” by the creator. That certainly sounds pretty amazing, and so it is not surprising that many people have chosen to install it onto their browsers. Did you download it too? If you did, it is possible that you used the Chrome Web Store installer (chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/search-pro/jobjcgojjnbejjjeeeodeaonknnkjjed). The extension can also be introduced to people with the help of pop-ups and advertisements, and some might even feel like they are forced to install it. So, which one is the scenario you are a part of? Whether you installed the potentially unwanted program (PUP) after close deliberation, or you do not remember installing it in the first place, you have the same reasons to remove it. Continue reading, and you will learn why our Anti-Spyware-101.com research team advises deleting Search Pro. Read more »

Click-to-watch.live

Click-to-watch.live

Do not enable notifications introduced by Click-to-watch.live, or you will flood yourself with various ads, offers, warnings, and promotions. While advertising is part of our virtual lives, it is one thing to trust legitimate ads that belong to legitimate product/service developers and that are introduced via legitimate advertising platforms. It is an entirely different thing to interact with ads that are introduced via unreliable platforms and that promote completely unreliable products and services. Hopefully, you have not been tricked by the unreliable ads, alerts, or offers, and you can delete Click-to-watch.live notifications without further problems. Do you know how to perform the removal? The process is quite simple, and we hope that our tips and the guides shown below will assist you. As always, if you have questions after reading our report, you can ask them in the comments section.

Wholocked Ransomware

Wholocked Ransomware

Wholocked Ransomware is the kind of infection that you are likely to remember for a long time if it manages to invade your Windows operating system even after you delete it. This threat is sneaky, and it can attack without you fully realizing it. According to our experts at Anti-Spyware-101.com, files attached to misleading spam emails and RDP vulnerabilities could be used to distribute the infection. If it is successful at invading your system, it should be able to encrypt all of your personal files. Unfortunately, that means that your documents, photos, videos, archives, and other personal files should become unreadable. The encryption key that this malware employs is unique, and free decryptors cannot crack it. Unfortunately, at the time of research, malware researchers had not built a working decryptor either. This means that the victims of this malware are stuck. Can you recover your files by removing Wholocked Ransomware? If only that were the case. While you must get rid of the infection, do not expect that your files will be restored afterward. Read more »

Maas Ransomware

Maas Ransomware

Maas Ransomware can cause a lasting headache if it finds a security crack, through which it can invade Windows operating systems. Unfortunately, cybercriminals behind ransomware are very quick, and they can adapt according to the conditions. This is why most of the file-encrypting threats have a very short lifespan. After the potential of an individual threat is exhausted, a new threat emerges. In most cases, it is just a clone that does not have any unique threats. This is the case with the Maas infection as well, which is a clone of Opqz Ransomware, Sqpc Ransomware, and hundreds of other threats alike. All of them are clones of STOP Ransomware, which is the predecessor. Quite likely, the same attacker is behind all of these threats. A free tool named ‘STOP Decryptor’ was built by malware researchers, but it is not always able to recognize new variants quickly enough, and it can only decrypt files encrypted with an offline key. While we hope that you can restore your files, what matters right now is that you delete Maas Ransomware. Read more »

Aminedreg.info

Aminedreg.info is an adware server that doesn’t really exist in your computer, but you will probably see it often if you have your browser settings modified.

Cvazirouse.com

WatchMyTVShows Toolbar

WatchMyTVShows Toolbar

WatchMyTVShows Toolbar is an extension that Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox users can download for free, and some people are likely to think that downloading this extension would be a great idea. Our Anti-Spyware-101.com experts do not agree. According to our research, the extension is a PUP (potentially unwanted program) that does not offer incredibly useful services and that can help undisclosed third parties use the integrated search tool for advertising purposes. That being said, the interface of the toolbar can appear very colorful and interactive, and so some users might choose not to dig deeper. Nonetheless, the extension is pretty much useless, and it cannot hide that for too long. If you have already decided to remove WatchMyTVShows Toolbar, we have a guide that, hopefully, will help you clean your browsers and the entire operating system. Continue reading the report to learn all about the process, and do not forget to use the comments section if you want to ask us questions about the PUP and how to delete it. Read more »
