Ukcontentdelivery.info redirect removal instructions
What is ukcontentdelivery.info?
ukcontentdelivery.info is one of many rogue websites (similar to click.dialog.support, whateveryf.info, and persubscribe.com) that lead visitors to other untrustworthy sites. Typically, people do not visit this website intentionally - they are redirected to ukcontentdelivery.info by potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) or intrusive ads. PUAs often infiltrate computers without permission, deliver intrusive ads, and collect data relating to users' browsing habits.
Once installed, PUAs continually open new tabs/browser windows and redirect users to the ukcontentdelivery.info rogue website. Typically, these redirects cause additional redirects to other untrustworthy sites, some of which will contain malicious content. Continual redirects to malicious websites can lead to various computer infections. Intrusive ads (delivered by PUAs) also cause redirects to untrustworthy websites. In some cases, when clicked, they execute scripts designed to download/install malicious software or other unwanted applications. Furthermore, intrusive ads are annoying and diminish the browsing experience, since they are displayed using tools that enable placement of third party graphical content on any site and often conceal underlying content. Another downside of potentially unwanted applications is data tracking. Most PUAs record IP addresses, keystrokes, URLs of visited websites, search queries and other browsing-related details. Furthermore, collected data might contain personal/sensitive information that PUAs developers share with third parties (potentially, cyber criminals). Having these applications installed can lead to computer infections, privacy/browsing safety problems or even identity theft. We strongly recommend that you uninstall all PUAs immediately.

To eliminate ukcontentdelivery.info pop-up our malware researchers recommend scanning your computer with Spyhunter.
Potentially unwanted applications often share many similarities. They are promoted as useful tools, and users are given impression that they are legitimate. These are only attempts to trick users into downloading and installing PUAs. They deliver none of the functionality promised and are designed only to generate revenue for their developers. Rather than providing any real value, they cause problems such as unwanted redirects, privacy issues, and so on.
How did adware install on my computer?
Some potentially unwanted apps have official sites from which they can be downloaded, however, as mentioned above, many users usually install them inadvertently. Typically, users install PUAs through intrusive ads or the "bundling" method (often used by unwanted app developers). Bundling is used to trick people into installing unwanted apps with regular, usually free, software. Developers do not disclose information about the presence of PUAs within the installation set-ups - they hide them in "Custom", "Advanced", and other similar settings, of the software installation dialogs. In summary, clicking ads and skipping installation steps leads to inadvertent installation of PUAs.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Download/install software and browse the web carefully. Download software (especially free programs/apps) using official/trustworthy sources and direct links. Avoid using third party software downloaders, torrents and other sources of this type. Check "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar settings/options and opt-out of unwanted apps. Only then finish the installation. If you encounter intrusive ads that lead you to suspicious websites (gambling, pornography, adult dating, and so on), check for unwanted extensions, plug-ins, and add-ons installed on your browser. Remove unwanted/suspicious entries immediately. Also apply this to the unwanted programs installed on your computer. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
