What is Un-stop Adware?

Un-stop Adware is, as its name suggests, an ad-supported application; however, it does have a main function, which is supposed to give users access to blocked websites. This could be a great tool for those whose country does not allow access to certain websites. The problem is that our malware researchers at anti-spyware-101.com have classified this threat source as an adware program because it can use proxy servers to show you all kinds of questionable third-party ads.

Where does Un-stop Adware come from?

Although this adware program does have identical promotional websites at Un-stop.com, Un-stop.net, and Un-stop.org, you cannot actually download it as a standalone file. Instead, you are instructed how to set up your browsers to let this questionable tool control your proxy settings. These pages seem to have installation instructions for Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. You have to go to your Internet connection settings, you need to select the "Automatic proxy config URL" option, and then, type in "un-stop.com/wpad.dat" to get this service started. It is most likely that inexperienced computer users would not try to access or change these settings themselves so there has to be another way for this malware infection to spread.

In fact, there is and it is called bundling. This is a questionable distribution method because cyber criminals can pack all kinds of potentially unwanted programs and malware infections in one bundle to infect unsuspecting computer users. When you install such a bundle, it is quite possible that you do not even realize what additional programs like this adware you are letting on. This is why you may not remember how this program was installed. But, if you did not know about this adware, it is quite possible that you will find other malicious threats on your board as well. If you want to avoid getting infected by such bundles, you need to forget about shady freeware and torrent pages for downloading free software, clicking on third-party advertisements, and you also need to make sure every time you go online that your computer is free of threats. This is why we advise you to delete Un-stop Adware and then, to use a reliable malware scanner to detect all other threats.
