If the Ncontentdelivery.info page keeps popping up on your screen, you are in trouble. Its existence points straight at an adware parasite that has taken residence on your computer. But don’t worry. This type of malicious software targets web browsers only. Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge – no application is immune to its effect. Its job is to turn your web browsers into ad-displaying tools. This explains the sudden ad attack that ensues every time you open your browser.
Every page that you visit will be covered with different types of pop-ups, banners, blinking alert messages and even in-text promotions. What’s interesting about this sponsored content, is that it will be customized to appear attractive to you, thus raising its chances of getting clicked. The parasite will get paid for each click you make on the advertisements. However, it is not part of adware’s job to verify the pages it will promote. We advise you to avoid clicking on such shady ads, so you don’t unknowingly open a backdoor for hackers that seek a way into your device.
Most often, users install adware parasites on their computers without even realizing it. This can happen by opening spam email attachments or executable files, trusting a fake update notification, or installing software bundles that contain hidden malicious content. It is not uncommon to get your computer infected with adware by clicking on dubious links or ads. That’s why you should pay close attention to what you click on.
Hackers are being able to trick you because they use your negligence and carelessness against you. Do not be hasty or naive. Think twice before clicking on that ‘I Agree’ button, and make sure to have read the Terms and conditions before you do that. We also highly recommend installing under the custom setup mode when available, so no hidden content can get automatically installed on your device without your knowledge.
Adware is an annoying parasite that often gets underestimated. This pest is not harmless. The sooner you realize this, the better. It is important to act quickly when you discover that your PC is no longer adware-free. By leaving this pesky parasite unattended, you’ll only make your situation worse. It will get more and more aggressive as time goes by, and not even the Incognito mode will save you.
