Q. World-wide-new.com ads, how do I get rid of them off? I have these annoying advertising pop ups everytime I use my browser. How I turn them off? If someone has any solutions they would be appreciated.
A. If you are experiencing various advertising pop ups, redirects to web pages you did not intend to visit, then this might be a sign that your PC system has become a victim of the PUP (potentially unwanted program) from the adware (also known as ‘adware software’) group.
How does adware work? Adware is a type of software that is used as an online promotional tool. It is designed with the sole purpose to open dozens of pop up ads, and thus to promote the goods and services in an open browser window. Adware can substitute the legitimate advertising banners on misleading or even banners that can offer to visit malicious webpages.
Another reason why you need to delete adware software is its online data-tracking activity. Adware can analyze the location and which Web web pages you visit, and then show advertisements to the types of content, goods or services featured there. Adware authors can collect and sell your browsing information and behavior to third parties.
