Bodelen.com redirect removal instructions
What is bodelen.com?
bodelen.com is one of many rogue websites similar to mobnootiffy.com, lameterthenhep.info, pecul1ar.com, etc. Its purpose is to display dubious content or redirect visitors to other untrustworthy sites. People usually visit this website unintentionally, since potentially unwanted apps (PUAs) are responsible for these unwanted redirects. PUAs are often installed inadvertently and go on to cause redirects to websites such as bodelen.com, feed users with intrusive ads, and collect user-system information.
Once installed, PUAs continually force users to open bodelen.com in a new browser window or tab. This website displays dubious content or causes redirects to a number of other untrustworthy (potentially, malicious) sites. The behaviour depends on the visitor's geo-location. Redirects to sites containing malicious content can lead to computer infections. Another negative aspect of these unwanted applications is that most serve users with various intrusive ads, such as coupons, banners, surveys, pop-ups, and so on. To display them, PUAs employ tools that enable placement of third party graphical content on any site. Therefore, PUAs conceal underlying content of visited websites. The unwanted ads can be distracting, annoying, and, if clicked, might cause redirects to malicious websites. Furthermore, some might execute scripts designed to download and install additional unwanted apps. Note that PUAs can also record data such as IP addresses, geo-locations, search queries, URLs of visited websites, and other information. There is strong possibility that personal details might also be recorded. Developers share the data with third parties (potentially, cyber criminals), thus causing privacy/browsing safety issues or even identity theft. If PUAs are installed on your browser or a computer, uninstall them immediately.

There are many potentially unwanted applications on the web, most of which are presented as legitimate and useful. In fact, rather than providing the features promised, they are used only to generate revenue for the developers by causing unwanted redirects, gathering information, and feeding users with intrusive advertisements. Thus, having PUAs installed can cause a number of problems.
How did adware install on my computer?
Potentially unwanted app can often be downloaded from their official websites, however, they generally infiltrate systems without direct user permission - people install them inadvertently through, for example, clicked intrusive ads. In other cases, they are installed together with regular software. This occurs when software developers use the "bundling" method. Developers do not disclose information about the installation of these programs and hide bundled apps in "Custom", "Advanced" or other similar settings of the installation/download set-ups. Note that these unwanted installations usually occur when people skip installation/download steps or click various ads.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Download software using official and trustworthy websites/sources. Avoid using third party installers, downloaders, Peer-to-Peer (P2P) networks, unofficial or dubious websites, and so on. Check "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar parts of any download/installation set-up. Decline offers to install unwanted applications and only then finish the installation (or download) process. Many intrusive advertisements redirect users to deceptive, untrustworthy websites. These ads might appear due to unwanted applications installed on the browser or operating system. If you continually encounter advertisements that cause unwanted redirects (to websites such as adult dating, gambling, pornography, and so on), check the list of installed apps (extensions, add-ons, and plug-ins) on the default browser and eliminate all unwanted/unknown applications immediately. Also check installed programs on the operating system. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
