Q. I keep getting Global Viral News pop ups. I really don’t wish to have these popping up all while I am trying to use my personal computer. Thanks for any help you might be able to provide me.
A. If you see various pop-up windows and/or undesired adverts on your internet browser that just won’t go away, you might have inadvertently downloaded and installed adware (also known as ‘ad-supported’ software) or potentially unwanted application (PUA). Certain third-party download web sites might add applications which you don’t want with the software that you install.
How Adware works & Adware effects. Adware software is undesired software designed to throw advertisements up on your web-browser screen. Adware generates money for its developer by occasionally showing a huge count of ads and pop-up deals. You might experience a change in your start page or search provider, new tabs opening or even a redirect to malicious websites.
Does adware software steal your personal data? Adware software can gather your Net surfing activity by recording URLs visited, IP addresses, web-browser version and type, cookie information, Internet Service Provider (ISP) and web sites visited. Such kind of behavior can lead to serious security problems or user info theft. This is another reason why the adware which cause popups should be removed ASAP.
