NoProblem Ads

NoProblem ads removal instructions

What are NoProblem ads?

NoProblem ads appear when browsing the Internet and are caused by potentially unwanted browser add-ons, which commonly infiltrate browsers via free software downloads and claim to enhance the browsing experience by adding various useful features. At time of testing, these ads were caused by a browser plug-in called 'VLC Addon extension' and many other similar plug-ins (note, however, that this adware is in no way related to the official VLC application). These plug-ins claim to enhance the Internet browsing experience by adding various useful features, and although they may seem legitimate, are categorized as adware or potentially unwanted applications, since they install on browsers (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox) without users' consent. Furthermore, these add-ons generate intrusive ads and track users' Internet browsing activity. At time of research, these browser extensions were distributed using a deceptive software marketing method called 'bundling', and therefore, computer users often install them inadvertently together with free software downloaded from the Internet.

Common Dictionary removal instructions

What is Common Dictionary?

Created by Unlimited Downloads LLC, the Common Dictionary application claims to allow users to look up words from the English dictionary without using a web-browser or other tools. Common Dictionary is compatible with Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox.

These negative associations are made since this plug-in is distributed using a deceptive software marketing method called 'bundling' - the add-on installs on browsers together with free software downloaded from the Internet. Furthermore, Common Dictionary generates various banner, search, in-text, and pop-up ads when surfing the Internet.

   
GuardBytes Plus

GuardBytes Plus removal instructions

What is GuardBytes Plus?

GuardBytes Plus is fake anti-virus software that attempts to scare PC users into believing that their computers have been infected with high-risk malware, viruses, and Trojans. This rogue application infiltrates operating systems using infected email attachments, torrent downloads, security exploits, etc. After successful infiltration, GuardBytes Plus imitates a computer security scan and then generates a long list of supposedly-detected malware. Be aware that GuardBytes Plus holds no virus definition database or any features that would allow this application to detect any of the security infections listed. In fact, all infections listed during the 'security scan' are fake and do not exist on the victim’s PC. The real purpose of GuardBytes Plus is to encourage users to buy a fake license key. Do not buy GuardBytes Plus - it is a scam developed by cyber criminals.
