Newnewstoday.net is a member of the adware family and, as such, it is just as dangerous as it is annoying. And it is incredibly irritating. It does nothing but causing problems and worsening your online experience. This adware was never meant to be helpful to you. It was only created to serve crooks malicious purposes. That’s right. They use it boost web traffic on some particular pages so they could gain money. Have you ever heard of the pay-per-click method? It is very famous among crooks. A single click on the wrong link/ad/page fills cybercriminals` pockets. Do you really want to sponsor crooks “business”? We highly doubt it. Not to mention that their profits come only at your expense and you are jeopardizing your own safety. Don’t waste any more time. Find the adware and delete it as soon as possible before it is not too late. Keep in the mind that the longer the pest stays on board the more problematic it gets.
First of all, Newnewstoday.net adware sneaks into your system without you realizing and immediately starts messing with your machine. The first thing it does after having slithered in is you compromise your browsers. Yes, all of them. It adds to each one a malicious extension and you don’t even have one reliable browser anymore. You may also find other unauthorized changes in your settings like homepage and search engine replaced, new toolbars added, etc. None of these reshuffles requires your approval. The parasite acts completely behind your back and your preferences are no longer are a priority. Now that your browsers are infected you will be forced to deal with a ton of issues on daily basis.
For example, the Newnewstoday.net website will be everywhere along with other shady pages. You open your browser, it is there. You open a new tab, it is there. You try loading another page, it is still there. You cannot get rid of it and the numerous ads it throws your way. Aside from the redirects, you will also have to deal with the advertisements. The adware generates countless pop-ups, ads, video ads, coupons, banners, offers, etc. and bombards you with them. Do you imagine using your machine in such conditions? Moreover, as we already explained, the most of these ads are sponsored and used to boost web traffic and help crooks make money. A sponsored link cannot be trusted. It could easily redirect you to a page which is brimming with malware and you can infect your PC even more with a single click. And this time you may download a much more serious threat such as a ransomware or a Trojan.
Of course, there will be some perfectly safe ads and links on your screen but there is no way to tell them apart from the malicious ones unless you click. But clicking is too risky. This means you have to restrain from everything. Your PC is not safe to use. Do you see how this adware hijacks your machine? You have reached a point when it is better not to use it because otherwise, you may worsen your situation. And your computer is already suffering due to the adware`s shenanigans. Its speed is incredibly slow, the browser freeze frequently because they are overwhelmed, your system crashes, etc. It won’t be long before the machine breaks down completely.
However, there is a problem this adware causes with makes all the above-mentioned issues to pale. The security risk. Your privacy is jeopardized because of the adware. The program spies on you, collects your personal information and sends it to the crooks behind it. Your financial and identifiable details are not safe either. Can you imagine what would happen in such data falls into the crooks` hands? They won`t think twice before they use it for their malicious purposes or sell it to third parties. Either way, there is not a scenario in which this ends well for you. Take measures now and don’t wait until things become unfixable. Use our removal guide and permanently delete the parasite from your PC.
But how this adware infected you? It is safe to say that you didn’t download it on purpose and yet you still have it on board. Do you often download bundled programs? This is one of the most effective and popular traveling tactics that cyber infections use. An adware could easily be attached to the bundle and you won`t realize it is there until you have already downloaded it. That’s why always opt for the Advanced settings in the Setup Wizard. They give you the opportunity to deselect any additional program which you don’t want to get alongside the others.
Also, carefully read the Terms and Conditions, don’t skip installation steps and don’t rush the process and hope for the best. This is what infections need. Your carelessness. And not only with software bundles. With other methods as well. For example spam messages. If you open any email without thinking you double your chance at getting infected. Think twice before you click an email open and if it looks shady or you don’t know who send it, delete it right away. Be more vigilant online and don’t make yourself an easier target.
