Check-this-out-now.online redirect removal instructions
What is check-this-out-now.online?
check-this-out-now.online is a rogue website identical to kaymopk.com, lawsivo.ru, track.special-offers.online, and many others that force users to visit various other untrustworthy sites. Typically, users visit check-this-out-now.online inadvertently - they are redirected to it by potentially unwanted programs (PUPs). These rogue programs are installed without users' consent and, in addition to unwanted redirects, deploy intrusive ads, run background tasks, and record user-system information.
Once installed, potentially unwanted programs regularly open browser windows/tabs and redirect users to the check-this-out-now.online rogue website. From there, users are redirected to other (typically 2-3) websites that are potentially malicious and might contain dubious content. By visiting these sites, users risk computer infections. Furthermore, PUPs often deliver intrusive ads in the form of coupons, banners, pop-ups, surveys, and so on. These are typically displayed via tools that enable placement of third party graphical content on any site (and conceal underlying content). Furthermore, if clicked, they often redirect users to other untrustworthy websites. Some of these ads might run scripts that download and install potentially unwanted programs (possibly, malicious). PUPs record user-system information such as visited websites, IP (Internet Protocol) addresses, search queries, keystrokes, geo-locations, and so on. Later, this data is shared with third parties to generate revenue (it is possible that collected data will be sent to cyber criminals). This can result in privacy issues or even identity theft. Once installed, PUPs can run also background tasks - behaviour that can affect computer performance. We advise you to uninstall these rogue programs immediately.

Most PUPs are virtually identical and share a common purpose: to generate revenue by collecting information, delivering intrusive ads, and causing unwanted redirects. PUP developers offer "useful" features, but these programs seldom deliver the functionality promised or any other value.
How did adware install on my computer?
Many potentially unwanted programs can be downloaded from their (supposedly official) websites, however, in most cases, they end up on computers through clicked intrusive advertisements, or they come bundled with regular software that users install. Bundling is a deceptive marketing method used to stealthily install PUPs together with other regular software. Developers do not disclose these installations properly and hide PUPs in "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar parts of the installation processes. Therefore, PUPs can be installed simply by skipping installation steps.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Avoid using third party software downloaders (and installers). The same applies to torrents. Download software (especially free software) using official and trustworthy sources/websites only. Do not skip installations steps without first checking "Custom"/"Advanced" settings. Opt-out of unwanted offers/features (such as potentially unwanted programs). Once you have deselected any additional software, you can then finish the installation. Be cautious when browsing the web - avoid clicking untrustworthy ads, especially when visiting unofficial/untrustworthy sites. Today, it is difficult to determine if ads are legitimate - ad developers invest time in money into their design. Therefore, if you happen to click this type of ad and are redirected to an untrustworthy website (gambling, pornography, adult dating, etc.), close the window or tab immediately and check your browser extensions, plug-ins, and add-ons and check if there are any suspicious entries. The same applies to programs on your computer. Remove dubious programs immediately. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
