    HP Computing Support Год назад +1anakin 20 Adware is any software application in which advertising banners are displayed while a program is running. If your computer is suddenly inundated with pop-up ads or your browser keeps sending you to the wrong websites, you may be infected with adware. Windows and Mac are both vulnerable to malicious software that can hijack your browser and litter your screen with advertisements, there are many ways to manually remove adware in the event you’ve “caught” something. Start Anti-Malware and run a scan. Start your browser to check for rogue extensions or add-ons. Check your browser start page, search engines, and other defaults.See what programs are set to start automatically. Save your settings and restart the computer. Check for programs that can be uninstalled.
