The constant appearance of the Wemidon.win page is a very bad sign. It means that your machine harbors an infection. An adware parasite is lurking somewhere in the corners on your system and the display of Wemidon.win is its way of revealing itself to you. Head that warning. Having an adware parasite in your system won`t lead to anything good. On the contrary. You will face tons of problems which will continues to grow in both numbers and severity as time passes. Do your best to delete the adware as soon as possible.

Once you spot the Wemidon.win site taking over your browsers, take actions. Luckily, this pest is relatively easy to tackle IF you don’t procrastinate and act promptly.

But this is not the only page you are forced to visit. Of course, not. Due to the adware you are redirected to shady pages all the time.

The Wemidon.win Virus

The pest throws an avalanche of ads at you and if you click on them, hackers get paid. This is called the pay-per-click mechanism. Your clicks fill crooks` pockets. You are becoming their sponsor. But there is more. The ads also hide risks. They are sponsored. Most of them, anyway. By clicking you are not only helping cybercriminals become richer but you are also exposing yourself to malware risk.

Just like with the dodgy sites, a single click on the wrong ad is all it takes for you to get infected with more parasites. Your click equals your permission. The malware enters your machine and leaves you oblivious. The other problem you are facing is that the ads are just too many to avoid. They are everywhere and sooner or later you will click even if you don’t mean to.

Sometimes a commercial pops up right under the cursor of your mouse or moves under it and you click on it. Or, it blocks the entire page and when you try to close it with the “X” button, you end up redirected to a suspicious page. You cannot win this battle. The only way to get rid of the adverts and redirects is to remove the adware completely. Once you do that, everything will get back to normal. So, do it. Follow our removal guide below and delete the infections immediately.

How did the adware enter your PC? Usually, these pests rely on the bundling technique. So, next time you are installing a program or an update, pay attention. You don’t know what else may be bundled with them. Don’t rush and read everything carefully. Opt for the Advanced settings in the Setup Wizard. They take more time but they also allow you to see if there are any “bonus” apps attached to the original program which are about to enter your machine. You are also able to deselect them before finishing the installation. We strongly recommend you do that. Such extras are usually viruses and you don’t need them on your system.
