Nuclearlytu.info redirect removal instructions
What is nuclearlytu.info?
Virtually identical to notifychheck.com, newerannews.com, istric.com, and many others, nuclearlytu.information is a rogue website designed to cause redirects to other untrustworthy, dubious sites. Most users arrive at this website unintentionally - they are redirected to them by potentially unwanted applications (PUAs). These are often installed without users' direct permission, deliver intrusive ads, and gather browsing-related (and other) information.
When installed, PUAs take control of affected browsers, open new tabs/windows, and redirect users to nuclearlytu.information. From here, users are redirected to two or three other untrustworthy websites that are likely to contain malicious content and cause computer infections. PUAs are also known to deliver intrusive ads. They feed users with various coupons, banners, pop-ups, surveys, and so on. These ads are usually displayed via tools that enable placement of third party graphical content on any site, and conceal underlying content of any visited website. Furthermore, if clicked, they might cause redirects to untrustworthy, potentially malicious websites or execute scripts designed to download/install unwanted apps. These potentially unwanted apps are often categorized as information trackers, since they record keystrokes, search queries, IP addresses, URLs of visited websites, geo-locations, and so on. They also gather sensitive/personal information that PUA developers share with third parties (potentially, cyber criminals) who misuse it to generate revenue. By sharing private details, developers put users at risk of various problems relating to browsing safety and privacy. These actions can also lead to identity theft. Therefore, we recommend that you uninstall all unwanted apps immediately.

To eliminate nuclearlytu.info pop-up our malware researchers recommend scanning your computer with Spyhunter.
The internet is full of potentially unwanted applications of this type. Generally, they are promoted as 'useful apps' that provide 'useful' tools, features, and so on, however, these promotions are merely attempts to trick users into downloading and installing PUAs. Once installed, PUAs provide none of the features promised or any other functionality. Developers use these apps only to generate revenue by causing redirects, delivering ads, and recording data.
How did adware install on my computer?
Users often install PUAs through clicked untrustworthy intrusive advertisements or when software developers use a deceptive marketing method called "bundling". Bundling is a way to trick people into installing PUAs together with other software. Typically, developers hide these bundled applications in "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar settings/options of the installation/download set-ups. In most cases, information about installation of unwanted apps is not properly disclosed. Despite this, PUA installations are usually the result of skipped installation steps and unchanged download/installation settings.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Never download software from unofficial/untrustworthy sources, using various third party software downloaders/installers, and so on. Do not skip software download or installation steps. Check all available "Custom/Advanced" (and other similar) settings/options. Deselect offers to install unwanted apps and only then finish the download/installation. Note that most intrusive ads may seem legitimate, but they often redirect to untrustworthy, dubious websites such as gambling, adult dating, pornography, etc. If you encounter these ads, check installed programs on your computer/operating system and extensions, add-ons, and plug-ins on your browser. Uninstall all unwanted/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.
