Iperadventure.com redirect removal instructions
What is iperadventure.com?
Virtually identical to special-news.online, videoommooth.com, limbotime.com and many others, iperadventure.com is a rogue website that redirects users to various untrustworthy sites. Typically, users visit this website inadvertently - they are redirected by potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) that are installed inadvertently/inadvertently. Furthermore, PUPs deliver intrusive ads, record user-system information, and affect system performance.
Once installed, potentially unwanted programs force browsers to open a new window or tab and redirect users to the iperadventure.com rogue website, which then causes additional redirects (typically 2-3) to other untrustworthy websites. There is a high probability that one of these websites will contain malicious content and result in high-risk computer infections. Furthermore, PUPs deliver intrusive (unwanted) advertisements (banners, coupons, surveys, pop-ups, etc.) displayed using tools that enable placement of third party graphical content on any site (and conceal underlying content). These ads can be distracting and, once clicked, redirect to suspicious (potentially malicious) websites or even execute scripts that download and install potentially unwanted programs, including malware. Furthermore, most potentially unwanted programs generate revenue by collecting information (IP addresses, search queries, visited websites, keystrokes, geo-locations, etc.) and sharing it with third parties (potentially cyber criminals). Information tracking and sharing can lead to various privacy issues or even identity theft. Some potentially unwanted programs are able to run background tasks, thus affecting computer performance. Clearly, there are a number reasons why it is not recommended to have these rogue programs installed on your computer. We recommend that you uninstall them immediately.
|Threat Type||Adware, Unwanted ads, Pop-up Virus|
|Symptoms||Seeing advertisements not originating from the sites you are browsing. Intrusive pop-up ads. Decreased Internet browsing speed.|
|Distribution methods||Deceptive pop-up ads, free software installers (bundling), fake flash player installers.|
|Damage||Decreased computer performance, browser tracking - privacy issues, possible additional malware infections.|
To eliminate iperadventure.com pop-up our malware researchers recommend scanning your computer with Spyhunter.
In summary, most PUPs are identical and have just one purpose: to generate revenue by causing unwanted redirects, delivering intrusive ads and collecting information. Developers give users reason to download them by offering "useful" tools, however, most PUPs do not deliver the functionality promised or any other value for regular users.
How did adware install on my computer?
Many potentially unwanted programs can be downloaded from their official websites, however, there are two methods that are commonly used to trick users into downloading them: through intrusive ads (mentioned above) and together with regular software. Developers use a deceptive marketing method called "bundling" - stealth installation of potentially unwanted programs with other regular software. Typically, PUPs are hidden in "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar parts of the installation processes. In most cases, information about these installations is not properly disclosed. Furthermore, many users tend to to skip download or installation steps and, in doing so, compromise their privacy and expose their systems to risk of various infections.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
To avoid installation of potentially unwanted programs, download/install software, and browse the web carefully. Download software from official and trustworthy sources only, and avoid using third party software downloaders, torrents, and other similar software. When installing software, check the "Advanced", "Custom" and other similar settings. Deselect unwanted offers and only then finish the installation. When browsing the web, avoid clicking on intrusive ads - they often appear legitimate (developers invest time and money in their design), however, once clicked, they often redirect to untrustworthy websites such as gambling, pornography, adult dating, and so on. If you have accidentally (or willingly) clicked this type of ad, check your browser and see if there are any unwanted/suspicious extensions, add-ons, or plug-ins. Check installed programs on your computer as well and uninstall 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.

Note that the safest source for downloading free software is via developers' websites only. To avoid installation of adware, be very attentive when downloading and installing free software. When installing previously-downloaded free programs, choose the custom or advanced installation options – this step will reveal any potentially unwanted applications listed for installation together with your chosen free program.
