Have you received any offer to get a Flash player update when you were browsing the Internet? If the message was displayed in a new tab of your browser and it uses adsdelivery1.com domain, you should think twice before clicking on it. Adsdelivery1.com popup is a bogus message that only imitates an update for your Flash player or other programs. It is delivered by an adware that may be secretly infiltrated into your computer and that aims to distribute other potentially unwanted programs.
If you click on Adsdelivery1.com popup, you will install applications such as Sweet-Page, Delta Search, Albrechto or other annoying tools. Your browsers may also be affected by some unwanted plugins or extensions that can compromise security of your personal information. You should never click on any suspicious popups especially if they appear while you surf the Internet, even if they claim to be a crucial update. All your updates should be downloaded from official sources only.
To avoid adware that is responsible for displaying Adsdelivery1.com popup and similar fake messages, be more cautious with your downloads from the Internet. Always pay attention to the installation steps of your new downloads. A lot of freeware may have additional programs bundled which are not clearly disclosed and which can be added automatically. Also avoid clicking on suspicious links and never open attachments of spam emails.
To remove Adsdelivery1.com popup, uninstall the adware that is responsible for it. Then restore the settings of all affected browsers. Beware that it can affect multiple browsers at the same time. Follow the steps below to learn how to do it:
Using Control Panel to remove the main Adsdelivery1.com popup components and installers
- Go to Control Panel. On Windows XP/Vista/7 open Start -> Control Panel , Add/Remove Programs or Uninstall . On Windows 8 enter Control Panel in the search box, then look for Uninstall a program. You may need to confirm that you are the administrator on this PC, in both cases.
- Look for Adsdelivery1.com and /or similar looking items on the list of programs. By default, I recommend removing Yontoo, WebCake, anything “savings” or “coupon” related. Scanning with Anti-Malware programs like Spyhunter or Stopzilla might give a good idea of what programs you should remove from there as well.
