TAP Provider V9 is an adware server, which can send all kinds of questionable third-party advertisements to your screen when your system has been infected with certain malware. If you find way more suspicious ads while surfing the web than before, chances are those come from this ad server. As you may know, being exposed to potentially unreliable third-party content can be risky to engage with. You may easily infect your computer with more serious threats, but you may also open a new tab with malicious content. If you are scammed on a fake website, you may also lose money from your bank account. All in all, it can quite dangerous to let such an adware server serve these malware infections and other malicious programs, which may have sneaked onto your computer without your knowledge. We advise you to remove TAP Provider V9 immediately if you want to put an end to this possible threat source.
This adware server can target your computer when you have installed any Elex family browser hijackers recently, such as Sowin8.com and Lovesearchweb.com. As a matter of fact, it is possible that you installed such a malware infection a few months back, but suddenly it starts to use this adware server to show you third-party ads. Another possibility is that you downloaded a software crack called KMSpico, which is a Microsoft Windows and Office crack. This program can also be used by this adware server to flood your screen with annoying and potentially harmful third-party banner and pop-up ads. But how did you infect your computer with these programs in the first place and why it is important that after you delete TAP Provider V9, you scan your system?
First of all, it is quite likely that you visited a shady torrent or freeware page, and you downloaded a free program, a movie, or any other file. What you may not have noticed is that you probably downloaded a software bundle or, in the case of the Microsoft crack, it could be a standalone file, which is malicious in itself. When you install a bundle and you are not cautious enough, you can easily allow several malicious programs to enter your system, including browser hijackers like the aforementioned Elex family members. If you simply downloaded KMSpico, the moment you clicked to launch this program, you doomed your system because it became an open channel for this adware server to promote questionable third parties on your screen. The main lesson here is that you should never use suspicious file-sharing pages to download free programs or updates, let alone software cracks. Always use official sites instead. It is also important that you avoid other suspicious websites like betting, gaming, video sharing, dating, and porn-related ones because these can host corrupt third-party content, which can infect you with such threats even in bundles. We recommend that you scan your PC with a good malware scanner after you delete TAP Provider V9 from your computer.
This adware server can display potentially unreliable third-party advertisements and promoted websites on your screen. It uses malicious channels (malware infections) to be able to do so, which is already suspicious enough. Obviously, this is an aggressive way to operate and it should not be tolerated by any users either security-minded or not. Remember that one click on the wrong content can endanger your privacy and your system by dropping malware infections on your system in the background. What is probably worse, you could end up on a malicious or fake website where cyber villains can scam you and you could give up your personal and banking details only to realize later that your account has been drained.
