'Error Code - Site you are visiting contains Malware' Error

'Error Code: Site you are visiting contains Malware' error removal instructions

What is 'Error Code: Site you are visiting contains Malware' error?

This error message contains text stating that users' visited website is infected with malware. Although it may seem that this warning is useful and helps to prevent computer infections, this is actually false, since the message is generated by rogue adware-type applications and users are unable to close it. In this case, the fake error message is generated by an adware called MovieDea. Users should know that every adware-type app claims to enhance the Internet browsing experience by enabling a variety of useful features. However, these false claims are merely attempts to give an impression of being legitimate and handy. The main reason why applications like MovieDea are categorized as adware and potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) is the stealth installation - most of them infiltrate the system without users' consent. Furthermore, they start displaying obtrusive online advertisements and tracking Internet browsing activity.

'The Proxy Server Is Not Responding' Error

'The proxy server is not responding' error removal instructions

What is 'The proxy server is not responding' error?

'The proxy server is not responding error' is often caused by adware/browser hijacking plug-ins and potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) that are able to modify Internet browser settings.

This method is popular amongst users who intend to access websites from which they have been banned, or ones that are blocked in their current location.
