Remove pop-ups

Pop-ups from website are extremely misleading. They typically present a lot of faulty information about your computer full of troubles. You may be reported about various errors and malfunctions detected in it. Then you will be suggested to install some PCKeeper software, which will supposedly fix these issues. pop-up pop-up

PCKeeper application is not a virus. It isn’t even a rogue antispyware. However, we definitely condemn its illegal methods of distribution in the world wide web. Even if we take these pop-ups as an example we may discover how faulty they are. We’ve actually seen these pop-ups on a brand new computer using the Windows 8 operating system we’ve recently installed. These pop-ups kept telling us about various problems supposedly revealed in the PCs. Well, how in the world could we actually have these many computer problems if we use the brand new system with fresh operating system installed?

PCKeeper isn’t the only software that does such illegal practice. There are many other absolutely useless programs classified as PUAs (Potentially Unwanted Applications). They’re unwanted because their presence in your computer doesn’t represent any value. Furthermore, due to such many tricky messages (like those coming from pop-ups) you may be prompted to buy the so-called full version of this useless program. By the way, this is the only purpose of this program. It doesn’t really have in mind to help you fixing real PC troubles. In fact, it is most likely not capable of protecting your system from real infections.

To sum up the above-said information, we recommend you not to trust such pop-ups promoting PCKeeper software. These pop-ups typically tell you a lot of lies about the bad condition of your PC. We recommend you to disregard their content completely. In case your computer is deeply infected with malware we recommend you to scan your system with Plumbytes Anti-Malware, the powerful antimalware application capable of detecting and deleting the most stubborn infections from your computer.
