Varielcontentdelivery.info redirect removal instructions
What is varielcontentdelivery.info?
Identical to seriencev.com, fastpushnotification.com, onlinepushnotification.com, and many others, varielcontentdelivery.info is a rogue website designed to deliver dubious content and redirect users to other malicious sites. Research shows that visitors often arrive at varielcontentdelivery.info unintentionally - they are redirected by potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) or intrusive ads delivered by other rogue sites. Furthermore, PUAs typically infiltrate computers without users' consent. As well as causing redirects, they deliver advertisements and record information relating to browsing activity.
Research shows that potentially unwanted applications force-open new browser tabs or windows and redirect users to varielcontentdelivery.info. This site then determines the user's geo-location by checking the Internet Protocol (IP) address so that specific content can be delivered, or additional redirects can be applied. In any case, users might be forced to encounter malicious content. Thus, redirects to and from varielcontentdelivery.info can lead to infiltration of malware. Unwanted apps also deliver advertisements, such as coupons, banners, pop-ups, and so on. These might also redirect to malicious websites and run scripts designed to download/install other PUAs (or even high-risk malware). Therefore, clicking them risks additional computer infections. To deliver intrusive ads, developers usually employ tools that enable placement of third party graphical content on any site. Therefore, they often conceal underlying content, significantly diminishing the browsing experience. Another significant downside is information tracking. PUAs continually record data such as queries entered into search engines, pages viewed, websites visited, geographic locations, IP addresses, etc. The information might contain personal details that developers share with third parties (potentially, cyber criminals). These people generate revenue by misusing private information. Therefore, the presence of data-tracking applications can lead to serious privacy issues. We strongly recommend that you eliminate all unwanted applications and browser plug-ins.
|Threat Type||Adware, Unwanted ads, Pop-up Virus|
|Symptoms||Seeing advertisements not originating from the sites you are browsing. Intrusive pop-up ads. Decreased Internet browsing speed.|

To eliminate varielcontentdelivery.info pop-up our malware researchers recommend scanning your computer with Spyhunter.
There are hundreds of PUAs that share many similarities. By offering many "useful features", these programs attempt to give the impression of legitimacy and often trick users to install. In fact, PUAs deliver no value for regular users, since their only purpose is to generate revenue for the developers. PUAs diminish the browsing experience, and pose a direct threat to your privacy/web browsing safety by causing unwanted redirects, gathering information, and delivering intrusive ads.
How did adware install on my computer?
Some unwanted apps have official download/promotion sites, however, most are distributed using the "bundling" method and intrusive advertisements. "Bundling" is essentially stealth installation of PUAs together with regular software. Developers are not honest enough to adequately disclose installation of these programs, and thus most are hidden within "Custom/Advanced" settings (or other sections) of the download/installation processes. In addition, many users often click advertisements and skip download/installation steps. In doing so, they expose their systems to risk of various infections and compromise their privacy.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Lack of knowledge and careless behavior are the main reasons for computer infections. The key to safety is caution. Therefore, pay attention when browsing the internet and downloading/installing software. Most intrusive ads seem legitimate, however, they are very likely to redirect to gambling, pornography, adult dating, survey, and other dubious websites. If you experience these ads or redirects, eliminate all suspicious applications and browser plug-ins. Furthermore, study each step of the download/installation processes and opt-out of all additionally-included applications. You are advised to download apps from official sources only, using direct download links, since third party downloaders/installers often include ("bundle") rogue programs. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
