You should be aware that Adblocker Premium is not a program that will shield you from commercial advertisements, because it is an adware application itself. You should remove this infection as soon as possible, because it will subject you to a lot of malicious content that will be difficult to ward off. The creators somehow managed to convince many users that the application is legitimate and now many computers have become infected with this very aggressive adware program. So, if your computer has some sort of Adblocker, but you are still seeing unwanted advertisements, then chances are that your computer has been infected with Adblocker Premium.
It is instructive to know that you will not find Adblocker Premium on the Internet Explorer gallery, Chrome Web Store or Mozilla’s add-ons page. There is no way in the world this infection could be featured on any of those extension stores. You can only get this infection by installing malicious software bundles. This kind of bundle might be featured on shady software sharing websites. However, we have yet to get information about the specific pages that feature them. Adblocker Premium is advertised on a website called Adblockerpremium.com. The website does not feature a download of the application. It only features some promotional slogans and a box where you can contact the developers. But we do not recommend doing so, because there is no way of knowing what you will receive, even if you get a reply.
The website claims that Adblocker Premium will protect your privacy. However, this is untrue, since the application will, like most adware applications, gather information about you. The malicious application will collect information, such as the websites you visit, searches you perform, social media pages, computer and browser information, IP Address, approximate geographical location, and so on. This information will be used to display specific advertisements on websites that you like visiting the most, including social media websites such as Facebook, Twitter, and others. You might not be able to tell the difference between legitimate ads that are common on social media websites from those provided by this infection, so you must be very careful.
Adblocker Premium might display very legitimate looking Java and Adobe update suggestions that will only install more malicious software. You might see offers to install various malicious applications that only pose as legitimate. Media players, various system utilities, and software updates might prove to be nothing more than just rogue programs, adware, browser hijackers, and so on. In some instances your computer might become infected with Filter Results and QuickSearch, but that is subject to change. Our researchers were able to get hold of standalone installers of Adblocker Premium. There were four different versions that featured different additional malware, but we believe that the number will rise further with time.
Unfortunately, you will be unable to remove Adblocker Premium manually, since its files and folders will be inaccessible. Look for a folder named JejRipde or GutjoHewsu. You will not be permitted access, because that is how the application protects itself from being removed. Therefore, we recommend using SpyHunter to remove this infection and those accompanying it. Failure to do so can inflict severe consequences that should be avoided. So, do not hesitate – take action!
