If the “You are Todays Lucky Visitor” pop-up appears all the time when you are surfing the web, you are in trouble. Yes, the last thing that you are is lucky. On the contrary. You have been quite unfortunate. The ad indicates the presence of a cyber infection on your machine. An adware program has managed to slither in and it is now luring from the corners of your PC. Take the pop-up`s appearance as a warning as that’s what it is. As soon as you spot it you have to take measures to remove the adware, forcing it on you.

Adware infections are relatively easy to remove but if you don’t act on time, the one you are stuck with will eventually go out of hand and cause you some irreversible damage. Keep in mind that turning your browsing into a nightmare and constantly bombarding you with intrusions is not all this adware does. There is more. And it is dangerous. It has to do with your security. Let`s explain.

Most of the issues the adware causes cannot go unnoticed. On the contrary. But this one thing the pest does in the background, in complete silence. It spies on you. It is designed to monitor your every online move and to gather as much valuable information as it can. What is worse it that the adware doesn’t just collect information, it also shares everything it finds with its crooks. Consider your private life no longer private while the pest is on board. Your private data could end up in the hackers` hands. So, even if you are the calmest person in the world and you can endure all the other browsing disruptions, the security risk you cannot ignore. Delete the adware now and save yourself a ton of troubles.

Now, let`s get back to how your browsing changes once the adware has entered. It all starts with the “You are Todays Lucky Visitor” pop-up taking over your screen. It appears on all the other pages you visit and it is not alone. All kinds of ads are being thrown your way daily. Banners, alerts, video ads, coupons, and so on and so forth. Numerous commercials are covering your screen, popping and blocking content.

Aside from that, you are also constantly redirected to shady pages which may be brimming with infections. And these infections you can get only with a single click. Don’t believe anything the adware generates. Don’t click on anything the adware generates. More often than not, it is dangerous. You click on the wrong ad, page or link and you automatically download more parasites. And the one you are hosting right now is enough. Your machine couldn’t take more parasites. It is already underperforming because of the adware. Your system is crashing, it lags, your browsers freeze frequently. Even your Internet connection is unstable. So, do what`s best for you and delete this intruder on the spot. Otherwise, it won`t be long before you regret it. Use our detailed removal guide below and get rid of the pest now.

But how did the adware manage to enter your system in the first place? Did you download it on purpose? We doubt it. And yet, here it is messing with your PC. These programs need your permission to get it and if you don’t give it, they cannot. So, the make sure to ask for it in the sneakiest ways possible. For example, one of the methods is freeware bundling. An infection like this adware is often attached as a “bonus” to a bundle and if you are not careful enough, you install it alongside the other programs. Other techniques involve spam email messages and their attachments, fake program updates, corrupted pages/links/torrents, etc.

All these entering tactics have one thing in common. They need something from you in order to work. Your carelessness. If you don’t pay attention and blindly agree to everything, they succeed. So, don’t. Carefully check what you are giving green light to. Don’t rush and take the time to actually read the Terms and Conditions. Don’t open emails from unknown senders even if they seem legitimate. Be cautious while online. Preventing an intruder from entering is much easier that dealing with it later on.
