Butitereventwil[.]info redirect removal instructions
What is butitereventwil[.]info?
butitereventwil[.]info is one of many rogue websites designed to cause redirects to other untrustworthy sites or display dubious content. This website is similar to many other pages of this type such as refrebrepheon[.]info, ketintontrat[.]info, and maranhesduve[.]club. People do not generally visit butitereventwil[.]info intentionally - potentially unwanted apps (PUAs) installed on their systems open this site. In addition, PUAs usually gather browsing-related data and deliver advertisements.
When this particular PUA is installed, it regularly opens butitereventwil[.]info in a new browser window or tab. The website then opens other, untrustworthy sites (about two or three ) or displays dubious content. The way it operates depends on the visitor's geolocation. Websites opened by butitereventwil[.]info might contain malicious content leading to computer infections. Note that PUAs often gather data including, for example, geolocations, URLs of visited websites, entered search queries, IP (Internet Protocol) addresses, and other browsing-related details. Installed PUAs can also target personal details. All information is shared by developers with other parties (potentially, cyber criminals). These third parties misuse the information to generate revenue. Additionally, PUAs serve users with ads including pop-up ads, coupons, banners, surveys, and so on. This can be annoying, and they often conceal underlying content of visited websites. If clicked, most open untrustworthy (or even malicious) web pages or run scripts designed to download and install other unwanted apps. Removed all PUAs immediately. Keeping them installed might cause privacy/browsing safety issues or even identity theft.

Most PUAs are used to generate revenue for the developers by deploying advertisements, collecting information, and causing unwanted redirects. They are promoted as useful apps by offering various features, tools, and so on, however, PUAs provide no real value or useful functionality.
How did adware install on my computer?
Adware is installed through intrusive ads that users intentionally (or accidentally) click, or when developers use a deceptive marketing method called "bundling". Bundling is used to trick people into download and installation of potentially unwanted applications with other software that users download or install intentionally. Developers do not disclose information regarding the bundling of these apps into set-ups and hide them in "Custom", "Advanced", "Manual" or other similar parts of the download/installation processes. Furthermore, many people download and install software without checking the settings, thus allowing download and install of additional, unwanted software.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
To avoid PUA installations, download software from official and trustworthy websites and using direct links, especially if the software is free. Avoid using third party downloaders/installers, Peer-to-Peer networks such as torrent clients, eMule etc., unofficial websites and other similar channels. Furthermore, download/install software with care. Study set-ups, check "Advanced", "Custom" and other similar sections, and opt-out of offers to download or install unwanted apps. Note that intrusive ads usually seem legitimate, however, they often redirect users to untrustworthy websites such as gambling, pornography, adult dating, and so on. If these redirects occur regularly or ads appear on visited websites, check your browser for unwanted entries (extensions, plug-ins, add-ons, etc.) and remove them immediately. Also check unwanted programs installed on your computer and remove them. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Malwarebytes for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
