Wemidon.win redirect removal instructions

What is wemidon.win?

Identical to toroadvertisingmedia.com, popads.net, adskpak.com, and many others, wemidon.winis a rogue website designed to cause redirects to various other dubious sites. Research shows that users are often redirected to wemidon.win by various potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) that typically infiltrate systems without permission. Be aware that, as well as causing redirects, PUPs deliver various intrusive advertisements, record user-system information, and, in some cases, perform unwanted background tasks.

wemidon.win adware

Following infiltration, potentially unwanted programs randomly open new browser tabs/windows and redirect to wemidon.win. Immediately after visiting this site, users encounter several (typically 2 or 3) consecutive redirects to other dubious websites likely to contain malicious content. Therefore, redirects to and from wemidon.win will lead to high-risk computer infections. As mentioned above, PUPs continually deliver various advertisements that often conceal underlying website content, thereby significantly diminishing users' Internet browsing experience. Furthermore, they may also lead to malicious websites and/or even execute scripts that stealthily download/install malware/PUPs. Clicking them can also result in high-risk computer infections. Potentially unwanted programs are also known to record user-system information that often includes personal details. Collected data typically includes (but is not limited to) IP addresses, geo-locations, URLs visited, search queries, keystrokes, etc. The data is mostly sold to third parties (potentially, cyber criminals). Thus information tracking can lead to serious privacy issues or even identity theft. Some potentially unwanted programs stealthily mine cryptocurrency or run other unwanted processes without users' consent. This behavior results in a significant reduction in overall computer performance. For these reasons, we strongly advise you to uninstall all potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) immediately.

The Internet is full of potentially unwanted programs, all of which are virtually identical. By offering various 'useful features' (e.g., file conversion, anti-virus/anti-spyware, system optimization, etc.), PUPs often trick users to install, however, these programs are designed only to generate revenue for the developers. Only a small percentage of PUPs enable the functionality promised - most are useless for regular users. These programs merely cause unwanted redirects, deliver ads, record information, and misuse system resources, thereby posing a direct threat to your privacy and Internet browsing safety.

How did adware install on my computer?

In some cases, potentially unwanted programs have official download/promotion websites, however, most are distributed using the aforementioned intrusive ads, and a deceptive marketing method called "bundling" - stealth installation of third party applications together with regular software/apps. Therefore, users often install PUPs inadvertently, without their consent. Developers are aware that many users rush download/installation processes and skip steps. Therefore, they hide "bundled" applications within "Custom/Advanced" settings of the download or installation processes. Skipping download/installation steps (and clicking various advertisements) thus exposes systems to risk of various infections and compromises users' privacy.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

The main reasons for computer infections are poor knowledge and careless behavior. The key to safety is caution. Therefore, be very cautious when downloading and installing software, and browsing the Internet. Carefully analyze each window of the download/installation dialogues and cancel all additionally-included programs. We also strongly recommend that you avoid using any third party downloaders/installers, since criminals monetize these by proliferating dubious programs (the "bundling" method). Furthermore, bear in mind that intrusive advertisements often look legitimate, however, they are distinguishable for their redirects - most lead to gambling, adult dating, pornography, and other dubious websites. If you encounter such redirects, uninstall all suspicious applications and browser plug-ins.
