Updated on November 5, 2013

Tired of an inline and an online ads that pops up on your browser? Don’t worry, you are not alone. I am sick of it too. Every time I open my browser, this annoying and irritating ads just pop out in the middle of nowhere; and sometimes it directs you to a site that you never know that it exist. The reason for that is that you have accidentally clicked an infected site that automatically runs on your computer without your permission. Worse of all, if it downloads on its own once you stumbled upon the author's site, your computer is infected with a virus called malware. Oftentimes, if you let it runs and let it stay for a while on your computer. So before it gets you, deleting it will solve the issue.
