The display of the Koolmediaoffers.com page is a clear sign of an adware invasion. The two go hand in hand. If you see the site, you have the adware. Simple as that. Yet, the situation you are in is not simple at all. Adware pests don’t make for pleasant tenants. On the very contrary. They make your browsing a hellish experience.

The adware also floods your PC screen with countless commercials which, if you click on, hackers make money. This is called the pay-per-click mechanism. You help crooks get rich. What is more, you risk your safety in the process.

How did you get infected with this adware? It probably arrived bundled in another program and you were too careless to notice. If you want to keep your machine safe you have to be vigilant. For example, when you install a program, don’t rush. Take your time to read the Terms and Conditions/EULA before you accept them. They may hide some misleading clauses which you are totally against and if you skip them, there is no turning back.
Also, opt for the Advances settings in the Setup Wizard. Yes, they are more time-consuming but they also give you complete control over the installation while with the Standard ones, everything gets done automatically. You will be also able to see and remove all additionally attached apps from the bundle before you finish the installation and thus prevent an infection from entering.
