It is believed that installmonstr (or installmonster) software bundles are used for the distribution of malicious infections that are using this adware server. They might even add it to the Startup or create scheduled tasks to ensure that suspicious offers keep coming your way. While you can get rid of advertisements by closing the window showing them, you want to delete malware that is responsible for the mess too. In fact, this might be the only way for you to get rid of undesirable software. itself is represented as a search tool with a bunch of links to news articles. According to our research, these articles are stolen from other sites, which means that they are placed just for show. The search tool is unreliable as well because it presents sponsored content via Google Search. While Google Search is a terrific search engine, the hijacker makes the results shown via it unreliable. By the way, the interface of this pseudo search engine is identical to the interfaces of and, as well as many other advertising domains. Overall, although can work as a search tool, users are most likely to encounter the ads shown via it. According to our experienced malware researchers, depending on the party that is showcasing the ad, the URL of the page should have a combination of 5 unique letters (the format is[5 letters]). Are you rerouted to such pages when browsing the web or do advertisements pop up regularly at specific intervals? In this case, a scheduled task might have to be removed to disable the ads.

Is interacting with advertisements risky? It sure is because this advertising domain is unlikely to serve reliable parties, who could easily employ more trustworthy and transparent advertising platforms. On the contrary, this adware server is likely to be associated with malicious parties who could use it to showcase unreliable and useless offers, as well as to place potentially intrusive tracking cookies. For example, surveys and prize giveaways could be introduced to you to extract personal information, such as your full name, telephone number, or email address. You could also be introduced to suspicious shopping deals. Pornographic material could pop up via advertisements as well. In the worst case scenario, malware installers could be represented via the misleading ads. Clearly, interacting with these advertisements could be dangerous, and, therefore, it is not recommended.
