I wrote this article to help you remove Bigbangads.go2cloud.org. This Bigbangads.go2cloud.org removal guide works for Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer.
If you constantly get redirected to Bigbangads.go2cloud.org, don’t blame your web browser. You have an adware infection on board. The Bigbangads.go2cloud.org adware is a typical parasite of this class. It sneaks into the victim’s machine unnoticed, scans the system and infects all installed browsers. It has only one purpose: to generate revenue for its owners. To do so, it will drown you in a sea of coupons, fake software update alerts, great deals and pop-up ads. At first, it is a minor nuisance that can be easily ignored, but given enough time, it can cause some irreversible damage to your system.
The Bigbangads.go2cloud.org adware uses the so-called pay-per-click marketing system. For every ad the user clicks on, the owners of the software get paid. All these people want is money. Therefore, they won’t hesitate to expose you to numerous ads. The thing is, those ads are very hard to ignore. Some of them will force you to watch a video for a given period of time before allowing you to close the pop-up window. Ad-blocking apps are useless because those ads are coming from the Bigbangads.go2cloud.org software that is installed on your computer.
Now that we explained that the Bigbangads.go2cloud.org adware is a piece of software installed on your machine, you understand why you are seeing so many ads. But do you understand the process those ads go through in order to pop up in front of your eyes? Well, it is very simple actually. The Bigbangads.go2cloud.org utility creates an ad-layer. It forces adverts on all opened web pages. Those ads are visible only to you. The adware also hides ads by its competitors and replaces them with its own. Hence, it limits your choices and sources of information.
We should mention that the ads displayed by the Bigbangads.go2cloud.org adware can be dangerous. A malicious ad can redirect you to an infected website where a drive-by download will be executed. Such downloads are completely automatic and don’t need any interaction by the user. For this reason, drive-by downloads are often used by hackers for malware distribution. Don’t risk your system’s health. Detect this intruder and delete it on the spot!
Dealing with the Bigbangads.go2cloud.org adware, you may have noticed something odd. All ads you see have something to do with your hobbies, interests or needs. This is because this malicious utility knows you well. But how is this possible? Well, it is no wonder, since it is constantly spying on you. It’s not a joke. The adware is actually spying on you. It knows your online habits, your favorite websites, which pages you visit and even what search inquiries you make. If you are not careful, it can steal your user names and passwords. Try not to log into any banking services and social media, otherwise, you may lose more than your privacy.
The Bigbangads.go2cloud.org adware will not keep the data it collected on you for itself. The furtive utility will send every bit of information to its owners. They can do whatever they want with the data, including selling it to third parties. The problem which you may not see is that anyone can be the third party. It can be some desperate marketing agent or it can be a dangerous hacker. Can you imagine what may happen if your data ends up in the hands of some capable hackers? Don’t tolerate this parasite! The longer it stays on your computer, the more dangerous it becomes.
Do you remember installing this program? It is no surprise if you don’t. The Bigbangads.go2cloud.org adware may have arrived as a bundled utility to some freeware or shareware you downloaded off the web. Developers tend to add extra programs in the installation files of many unlicensed programs. They would hide their presence under a custom/advanced tab and recommend the fast/standard method. Always opt for custom installation. Only under it can you find a list of all extra apps and deny their installation.
Other distribution methods are: torrents, spam emails, fake software updates and corrupted ads. The key to a secure computer is caution. Read the terms and conditions/EULA before installing a new app. If you spot anything out of the ordinary, abort the installation.
