UTUobEAdaBlock is another version of YouTubeAdBlocker which is a potentially unwanted application that can get onto your computer through various means. There are quite a few versions of this application and all of them have “official” websites that are nothing but empty shells – even if you were to come across the main homepage for UTUobEAdaBlock, you would not be able to download the application there. However, disregarding the distribution method it is clear that you need to remove UTUobEAdaBlock from the PC, because keeping the application in your system might result in a number of security issues.
Rather than being distributed from the official website, UTUobEAdaBlock is usually bundled freeware applications and various adware installer files than can be found either on third party file hosting websites or hide behind flash pop-up ads. UTUobEAdaBlock is known to be travelling together with Mobogenie, SaveNet adware helpers and other applications that are distributed via installRex installers. It simply shows that you should not download applications from unreliable sources, because you might end up installing applications that are neither necessary nor useful.
Based on the name, UTUobEAdaBlock is supposed to help you bock advertisements on YouTube. However, the effect is quite the opposite – when the program is installed on your computer, UTUobEAdaBlock adds extensions to Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. Afterwards, the application collects data on your web browsing history so that it could generate commercial advertisements that would eventually stall your web browsing process and expose you to potentially corrupted content.
When you click a pop-up stop and think whether you really know where it comes from. UTUobEAdaBlock may not mean any harm, but this application clearly is not responsible for the third party content that is embedded on the pop-ups. Hence, if you get redirected to a potentially dangerous website, you need to remember that you click the pop-up on your own risk.
The fact that you have UTUobEAdaBlock installed on your computer also means that you have other potentially unwanted and/or adware applications as well. Run a full system scan with SpyHunter free scanner and you will be able to determine what other applications should be deleted from the system.
As far as UTUobEAdaBlock is concerned, you can terminate the application via Control Panel, but you will need to remove the add-ons from Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome manually. However, that is not hard and you can achieve that by following the instructions we provide below. If you still have any questions after manual removal, or something does not go as planned, please leave your queries in the comment box below.
