The cause of unwanted ads by eroadvertising.com pop-ups on your computer is adware (also known as ‘ad-supported’ software). Technically, the ‘ad supported’ software, that displays lots of pop-up ads or redirects on an annoying site, is not a virus. It’s is created to make a money. Once started, the adware injects a small code within the content of web-sites that you visit. The malicous code may pop-up a new internet browser window with eroadvertising.com page or insert lots of advertising banners directly into the sites you’re viewing.
The adware can change the settings of the Firefox, Chrome, IE and MS Edge, but often that a harmful software such as this can also infect all types of browsers by changing their desktop shortcuts. Thus forcing the user each time launch the browser to see eroadvertising.com annoying ads.
The adware is the part of the software that is used as an online promotional tool. It’s created with the sole purpose to show dozens of advertisements, and thus to promote the goods and services in an open browser window. So, the eroadvertising.com is just one of the many pages of the so-called ‘ad-support’ type. It’s designed to fill the internet browser’s constant stream of advertisements, or reroute the browser to not expected and intrusive advertising web pages. Moreover, the ad supported software can substitute the legitimate ads on misleading or even banners that can offer to visit harmful pages. The reason is simple, many advertisers agree on any ways to attract users to their web pages, so the creators of adware, often forcing users to click on an advertising link. For each click on a link, the authors of the ad supported software receive income. It is the so-called ‘Pay-Per-Click’ method.
We recommend to get rid of the ad supported software, which redirects your web browser on the eroadvertising.com annoying site, as soon as you found this problem, as it can direct you to web-resources which may load other harmful software on your PC.
