What is Aptitudemedia.co?

Aptitudemedia.co is an adware server, and it is not a malicious computer infection. The server can be used by adware programs and other applications that promote commercial content. Getting exposed to this domain does not automatically mean that you will be infected with malware. However, you may encounter particular security issues that you should not overlook. Hence, you should take all the precaution measures to avoid the negative consequences that may occur when you get redirected to Aptitudemedia.co. For more information on how to deal with these redirections, please scroll down to the bottom of this description.

Where does Aptitudemedia.co come from?

We cannot tell exactly who put this domain up there. What’s more, if we were to open the website directly, we would see that it does not work. However, the page is used for other purposes so the fact that we cannot access it directly does not mean that someone else cannot use it in some other way.

Perhaps you noticed Aptitudemedia.co on your browser when you accessed some website that launched several pop-ups. Whenever you open a site to download freeware, to play online games, or to enjoy some adult content, please take note that such sites often have a lot of commercial ads, and sometimes you do not even need to click them directly to trigger a pop-up. Sometimes even clicking the search box on the site automatically opens several windows. Those windows redirect you to Aptitudemedia.co and other adware servers where you will encounter.

On the other hand, perhaps it is not a website you opened. Perhaps it is some program you have recently installed on your system. What’s more, maybe you are not even aware of the fact you have some unwanted program or plug-in on your computer. There are quite a few ways for unwanted programs to enter your computer, especially if you tend to download programs from file-sharing sites. Please remember that such pages often host third-party installers that bundle various programs together, and it is up to the users themselves to avoid the apps they do not need. For that, it is important to check all the stages of the setup. If you breeze through it automatically, you will most likely end up with a number of unwanted programs that will make use of this Aptitudemedia.co server to promote commercial content.

What does Aptitudemedia.co do?

We have pointed out already that this adware server cannot do much by itself because the domain does not even function. However, what happens when this domain is used by someone else? It depends on what that third party wants to achieve.

The most common reason to employ an adware server is marketing and commercial promotion. You will see a lot of different commercial content on your browser, as various redirection chains will take you to Aptitudemedia.co and other adware servers. Normally, you can simply close those windows and simply carry on with whatever you have been doing. However, sometimes the adware server and the program that utilizes it could be exploited by malevolent third parties that might try to infect you with malware.

These are the instances you need to avoid at any cost. If you are not careful about it, you could end up installing a dangerous program that will take over your system and will steal your money. Hence, it should be obvious that the moment you notice a lot of redirections, you should run a full system scan with a security program that will identify all the potential threats and will help you terminate malicious infections (if any).

How do I remove Aptitudemedia.co?

Rather than focusing on deleting the adware server (which is practically impossible), you should locate and terminate all the files and applications that actually employ Aptitudemedia.co to promote third-party content. Our security team recommends resetting your browser settings to default as this may ensure that all the unnecessary extensions and settings get removed.

Also, you should look for potentially unwanted programs in the list of installed apps via Control Panel. It might actually be troublesome to remove all the unwanted applications manually, so you can acquire a licensed antispyware program that will do the job for you automatically. You need to do everything you can to protect your PC from harm.
