Lameterthenhep.info redirect removal instructions
What is lameterthenhep.info?
lameterthenhep.info is another rogue website designed to deliver dubious content and cause unwanted redirects. It is virtually identical to dozens of other rogue sites, such as news-io.com, dartsearch.net, and nsandreskethep.club. Most visitors arrive at lameterthenhep.info inadvertently - they are redirected by potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) and intrusive ads displayed on other dubious sites. Research shows that PUAs typically infiltrate computers without users’ permission. In addition to causing redirects, they record user-system information and deliver intrusive ads.
Following infiltration, PUAs deliver new browser tabs/windows and redirect users to lameterthenhep.info, which then causes a number of additional redirects or delivers certain dubious content - this depends on the user's geo-location (determined by checking the IP address). In any case, users might end up encountering malicious content. Thus, redirects to and from lameterthenhep.info can result in various system infections. Furthermore, potentially unwanted apps feed users with banners, coupons, pop-ups, and other similar intrusive ads. These can redirect to malicious websites and execute scripts that download and install malware. Therefore, even a single click might result in high-risk computer infections. The ads are displayed using tools that enable placement of third party graphical content on any site. Therefore, they often conceal underlying content, significantly diminishing the browsing experience. As mentioned above, unwanted apps also record user-system information, such as IP Addresses, website URLs visited, pages viewed, search queries, etc. Collected data usually includes personal details that developers are likely to share with third parties (potentially, cyber criminals). These people generate revenue by misusing private data. Thus, the presence of data-tracking software might lead to serious privacy issues or even identity theft. You should eliminate these applications immediately.
There are hundreds of potentially unwanted applications that share many similarities. Developers present them as legitimate programs capable of providing "useful features", however, this is done only to give the impression of legitimacy and to trick users to install. Few of these apps provide the functions promised - most deliver no real value for regular users. Their only purpose is to generate revenue for the developers. These programs simply cause unwanted redirects, display advertisements, and gather information relating to browsing activity.
How did adware install on my computer?
Some PUAs have official download websites, however, due to the lack of knowledge and careless behavior of many users, most infiltrate systems without permission. Developers proliferate PUAs using "bundling" and intrusive advertising methods. "Bundling" is essentially stealth installation of third party applications with regular software. Developers are not honest enough to adequately disclose installation of third party software. Therefore, all "bundled" apps are hidden within "Custom/Advanced" settings (or other sections) of the download/installation procedures. Furthermore, many users click advertisements and skip download/installation steps. This behavior often leads to inadvertent installation of unwanted apps.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Caution is the key to computer safety. Therefore, to prevent this situation, be very cautious when browsing the internet and downloading/installing software. Select "Custom/Advanced" settings and closely analyze each window of the download/installation dialogs. Decline offers to download/install additional software and opt-out of already included apps. Avoid using third party downloaders/installers, since most are monetized using the "bundling" method (developers promote rogue apps). Download software using official sources and direct download links only. Bear in mind that developers invest many resources into intrusive ad design. Therefore, most seem legitimate. Once clicked, however, they redirect to pornography, adult dating, gambling, and other similar dubious sites. If you continually encounter these ads/redirects, immediately remove all suspicious applications and browser plug-ins and eliminate all dubious entries. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
