click.dialog.support redirect removal instructions
What is click.dialog.support?
click.dialog.support is a rogue website identical to whateveryf.info, persubscribe.com, ariocroft.com, incomingnow.com, and many others. As a rule, visitors come to click.dialog.support inadvertently - they're redirected by potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) or intrusive advertisements displayed in other rogue sites. Research results show that potentially unwanted applications typically infiltrate computers without permission. Aside from causing redirects, these applications also deliver various advertisements and continually record data about user's web browsing activity.
Potentially unwanted applications are designed to open new browsing tabs/windows and redirect users to click.dialog.support. Immediately after visiting this site users encounter several additional redirects (it depends on user's location) to other questionable sites. It is credible that users will eventually end up visiting a website that contains malicious content. Therefore, redirects to/from click.dialog.support might result in various system infections. Speaking of redirects, unwanted apps deliver intrusive advertisements that may also lead to malicious sites or even execute scripts designed to download/install malware. Therefore, clicking might result in various system infections as well. Intrusive advertisements are delivered using various tools that enable placement of third party graphical content. For this reason, most of them overlay visited websites' content, thereby significantly diminishing web browsing experience. As mentioned above, potentially unwanted applications are notorious for data tracking. These apps often record IP addresses, website URLs visited, pages viewed, search queries, and other similar data about user's web browsing activity. What's more important is that recorded information usually includes personal details and developers share it with third parties. This means that having data-tracking app(s) installed on your computer might eventually result in various system infections. For these reasons, unwanted applications must be uninstalled as soon as possible.

All potentially unwanted applications are very similar. By offering "advantageous features", unwanted programs try to create the impression of legitimacy/usefulness and trick users into installation. The problem is that these applications usually serve only one purpose: to generate revenue for the developers. Therefore, only a small percentage actually provides promised functions. Unwanted applications typically do nothing but cause unwanted redirects, deliver advertisements and record various information, thereby decreasing web browsing experience, as well as posing direct threat to user's privacy and Internet browsing safety.
How did adware install on my computer?
In some cases, potentially unwanted apps do have official websites. However, in most cases developers promote them by using aforementioned intrusive advertisements, as well as a deceptive marketing method called "bundling". Developers aren't honest enough to adequately disclose installation of unwanted apps. For this reason, all of them are hidden behind various sections (usually "Custom/Advanced" settings) of download/installation processes. What's more frustrating is that users often carelessly click on various advertisements and skip most of download/installation steps. Behavior like this is very likely to result in inadvertent installation of rogue apps - users simply expose the system to risk of various infections and put their very own privacy into threat.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
To begin with, users should know that lack of knowledge and reckless behavior are the main reasons for computer infections. The key to it's safety is caution, which is why paying attention when browsing the Internet and downloading/installing software is a must. Always remember that developers invest a lot into intrusive advertisements' design, thereby making them look completely appropriate. However, ads expose themselves by redirecting to unreliable websites (gambling, adult dating, pornography, and similar). In case you encounter any of such redirects, you should immediately remove all suspicious applications and browser plug-ins. Moreover, be sure to analyze all steps of download/installation processes and decline all offers to download/install additional software. Desired programs should be downloaded only from official sources, using direct download links. Third party downloaders and installers often include rogue apps, which is why using such tools is rather dangerous. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
