Thewowfeed.com

Thewowfeed.com

You do not want to have to deal with advertisements presented via Thewowfeed.com because this ad server is unlikely to offer anything useful, transparent, or trustworthy. Instead, it is likely to promote the services and products of parties that cannot be trusted, and that is why we suggest exiting the page that presents such ads as soon as possible. Unfortunately, some people are tricked into enabling notifications that are delivered by the ad server. If that is set up, ads can flood randomly, even when you are visiting trustworthy websites. Of course, you might be able to delete the pop-up ads by closing them, but they would reappear. Ignoring them might be difficult as well, given their distracting nature. Without a doubt, interacting with these ads is the worst choice. The good news is that you can remove Thewowfeed.com ads without having to put in too much effort. If you run Firefox, Chrome, or Edge, we can show you how to get rid of the annoying ads with the guides below. If you need a guide for a different browser, let us know. Read more »

RadioSearches

RadioSearches

In which case, you might be wondering if the extension truly provides “The best way to search.” What might help you answer this question is the fact that there are many similar potentially unwanted programs that claim to be providing the best way to search, for example, SearchGamez.

Templates Discovery Tab

Templates Discovery Tab

Templates for cards, invitations, documents, forms, or certificates can be useful, which is why Templates Discovery Tab might seem like an attractive tool. This extension promises to give access to various templates, but our Anti-Spyware-101.com research team does not identify it as a useful tool. Instead, we identify it as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). This is the conclusion that has been made after thoroughly inspecting the extension in an internal lab and finding out that it has many other functions, not just offering templates. In fact, it does not even produce templates of its own. Instead, it presents links to third-party websites, where templates can be found. So, in our eyes, the extension is neither useful nor trustworthy, and removing it seems like the only logical move. Are you ready to delete Templates Discovery Tab, or do you need more information about this PUP? In either way, you should keep reading. Read more »

Kuus Ransomware

If your computer cannot open your files and they have .kuus extension, your system might have been infected by a threat called Kuus Ransomware. It is a malicious file-encrypting application that uses a robust encryption algorithm to lock files that could be valuable. Afterward, the malware drops a ransom note asking to pay ransom if you want to get decryption tools that could unlock all files. The hackers may reassure you that you will get the promised tools, but, in reality, there are no guarantees that you will receive them. Therefore, we advise you to think carefully if you really want to deal with cybercriminals. Until you decide that you may want to learn more about the malware, in which case, we invite you to read the rest of this article. A bit below it, you should see our deletion instructions that show how you might be able to erase Kuus Ransomware manually. Read more »

AllConvertersSearch

AllConvertersSearch

If you are looking for tools that could help you convert files, know that AllConvertersSearch is not one of them. It is just a search tool, and even though it might seem that it would help find converters specifically, it does not offer anything more than a regular search provider would. In fact, it uses a quote-unquote regular search provider. It is Yahoo Search, and if you decide to use the suspicious extension, it will redirect you search.yahoo.com. You might think that this is not so bad, considering that Yahoo Search is a trusted search engine. Well, because the PUP (potentially unwanted program) modifies the results that are shown via it, we cannot recommend trusting it. If you delete AllConvertersSearch and then set Yahoo Search as your default search provider, we are sure that you will be safe, but if you use it via the PUP, you might not be. So, do you want to remove the PUP quickly, or are you still looking for more information about it? We can help you in both cases. Read more »

EG83 Ransomware

EG83 Ransomware

If you cannot recognize your files because their names were replaced with random titles and they have the .EG83 extension, you most likely encountered a malicious application called EG83 Ransomware. Such threats are usually used for money extortion, which is why the malware creates ransom notes in every directory that contains encrypted files and replaces a victim’s desktop picture with an image that also shows a ransom note. None of the messages say how much users would have to pay to get the tools needed for their files’ decryption. Whatever the price might be, we advise not to pay it if you do not want to risk getting scammed. To learn more about EG83 Ransomware like how it works, where it could come from, and how to erase it, we invite you to read the rest of this article. Read more »

Nebula Search
