Websteroids popup - How to remove?
What is Websteroids popup?
Websteroids popups are annoying messages that can be seen on Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. If you received them on your system, it means your computer was infected by some adware. These messages were designed just for one reason – to advertise some commercial websites and generate traffic for them.
Although Websteroids popups are not caused by a virus they do exhibit malicious traits and interfere into users’ browsing experience. The program highlights some words on the websites that users are visiting making them look almost like links. However, when you move your mouse over these words, Websteroids popups are displayed. Then if you click on the message, it will take you to one of the advertised websites. As you can imagine, it really disturbs your work on computer.
Security experts recommend taking more care of your downloads from the Internet that are free of charge, if you want to avoid such messages appearing on your system. Websteroids popups were noticed to come bundled with 1ClickDownlaod, Yontoo, Superfish and FBPhotoZoom. You can refuse installing bundles at the installation steps of the programs that you are download. Make sure you deselect any checkmarks that claim to add extra programs to your system.
Remove Websteroids popups from your system if your browsers have already been affected. Use a reputable antispyware program, for example, Spyhunter, hitman or other legitimate tool that you trust and run a full system scan. They will eliminate these annoying messages easily. Don’t forget to upgrade your antispyware to its newest version to ensure detection and removal of the most recent unwanted programs.
