Kaymopk.com redirect removal instructions
What is kaymopk.com?
kaymopk.com is one of many rogue websites available, and is virtually identical to others of this type (such as fixnnetwork.com, karonty.com, and ifortunne.com) that cause unwanted redirects to various untrustworthy websites. As a rule, most users do not visit kaymopk.com willingly - they are redirected to it by potentially unwanted programs (PUPs). These are mostly installed without users' knowledge and are designed to cause redirects, deploy intrusive ads, record information, and misuse system resources.
When this potentially unwanted program is installed on a computer (or web browser) it starts to cause redirects to kaymopk.com by opening browser windows or tabs. Visiting kaymopk.com triggers additional redirects (usually 2-3) to other untrustworthy websites that might contain malicious content and cause problems such as computer infections. Another downside of potentially unwanted programs is information gathering (maybe including personally identifiable details). IP (Internet Protocol) addresses, visited websites, search queries, geo-locations, and other gathered data might include personal details or other sensitive information. Furthermore, this data is often shared with third parties (potentially cyber criminals) to generate revenue. Data tracking can lead to privacy issues, or in some cases, even identity theft. Additionally, PUPs deploy intrusive ads that, once clicked, might direct to untrustworthy websites or execute scripts that install other potentially unwanted programs (in some cases, malicious). Furthermore, these ads can be distracting/annoying, since they are displayed using tools that enable placement of third party graphical content on any site and conceal underlying content. Note that some PUPs tend to run various background processes, thereby reducing computer performance by misusing system resources. Clearly, potentially unwanted programs can cause many problems and should be uninstalled immediately.

Most PUPs have a similar design, and the same purpose - to generate revenue by collecting information, delivering various intrusive ads and causing unwanted redirects. PUP developers offer "useful" features, however, most of these programs do not deliver the functionality promised and hardly give any real value for regular users.
How did adware install on my computer?
You can find PUPs available to download on their official websites, but they are more commonly installed inadvertently - through intrusive ads or together with a regular software. Developers often use the so-called "bundling" method. Bundling is a deceptive marketing method used to stealthily install potentially unwanted programs with other regular software. Developers tend to hide these programs in "Custom", "Advanced", and other similar settings of the installation processes and do not disclose their installations properly. Furthermore, many users skip installation steps without paying attention to the details. Developers use this behaviour to their advantage, resulting in PUP installations.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Download software from official/trustworthy sources, and avoid using third party downloaders or torrents. Software downloaders often are monetized by promoting potentially unwanted programs. Install software with patience - do not skip the installation steps, check "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar settings, and opt-out of unwanted offers (in this case, potentially unwanted programs). Avoid clicking intrusive ads, even if they appear legitimate, since cyber criminals invest time and money into their design. Once clicked, however, they often redirect to untrustworthy and potentially malicious websites (such as pornography, gambling, adult dating, etc.) If you have clicked this type of ad, close newly-opened windows/tabs and check if there are any unwanted extensions, plug-ins, or add-ons installed on your web browser. Check installed programs on your computer and remove any suspicious entries immediately. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
