If the Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer and Edge displays the Mommys Offers ads then most probably that your personal computer is infected with an adware (also known as ‘ad-supported’ software). This adware modifies the Google Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer settings to display a large amount of unwanted popup ads on all web sites, including sites where previously you ads have never seen. These ads can be varied: boxes signed with “Mommys Offers” or “Powered by Mommys Offers” or “Brought to you by Mommys Offers” or “Ads by Mommys Offers”, pop-up windows, in-text ads, different sized banners and so on. What is more, the adware, that opens the Mommys Offers ads, can cause your Internet connection to be slow or freeze your web-browser so that the interface is not updated anymore.
