Butitereventwil[.]info redirect removal instructions
What is butitereventwil[.]info?
Butitereventwil[.]info is one of those rogue websites that are designed to cause redirects to various untrustworthy websites or to display shady content. It is very similar to other pages of this type such as refrebrepheon[.]info, ketintontrat[.]info, maranhesduve[.]club and a great number of others. Not many people visit butitereventwil[.]info on purpose, most of the times installed potentially unwanted app (PUA) opens it for them. Apps of this type usually gather browsing-related data and deliver advertisements too.
Once a particular PUA is installed, it regularly opens butitereventwil[.]info in a new browser window or tab. When it is done, this website opens other, untrustworthy websites (about two or three of them) or it displays questionable content. The way it operates depends on user's (its visitor's) geolocation. Websites opened by it could contain malicious content, in other words, lead to computer infections. Another issue with unwanted apps of this type is that they often are designed to gather various data. For example, geolocations, URLs of visited websites, entered search queries, IP (Internet Protocol) addresses and other information of this type (browsing-related data). However, it is possible that installed PUA might be designed to target personal/sensitive details too. Everything what these apps collected gets shared by their developers with other parties, potentially, cyber criminals. Typically, third parties misuse it to generate revenue. Additionally, quite often apps of this type serve their users with ads. Various pop-up ads, coupons, banners, surveys and so on. Having to see them may be annoying, usually they conceal underlying contents of visited websites. If clicked, most of them open untrustworthy (or even malicious) pages or run scripts designed to download and install other unwanted apps. If there are any PUAs installed, they should be removed immediately. Having them installed might cause privacy, browsing safety issues or even identity theft.

Most PUAs of this type are designed to generate revenue for their developers by delivering advertisements, collecting information and causing unwanted redirects. However, most of them actually are promoted as useful apps, their developers offer their potential users various features, tools and so on. Unfortunately, PUAs usually do not provide their users with any real value/promised functionalities.
How did adware install on my computer?
Usually they get installed through intrusive ads that users intentionally (or accidentally) click, or when developers use the deceptive marketing method called "bundling". Bundling is used to trick people into downloads and installations of potentially unwanted applications together with other software that they download or install on purpose. Developers usually do not disclose information about these apps being bundled (included into setups) properly and hide them in "Custom", "Advanced", "Manual" or other similar parts of download or installation processes. To sum up, there are many people who download and install software without checking any of the aforementioned settings and that is how they download and install additional, unwanted software too.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
In order to avoid having unwanted apps installed, download software from official and trustworthy websites and using direct links, especially if that software is free. Avoid using third party downloaders/installers, Peer-to-Peer networks like torrent clients, eMule etc., unofficial websites and other similar channels. Furthermore, download/install software with care: analyze its setups, check "Advanced", "Custom" and other similar sections and opt-out offers to download or install any unwanted apps. Additionally, it i worth mentioning that intrusive ads usually look legitimate, however, they often redirect users to various untrustworthy websites such as gambling, pornography, adult dating and so on. If such redirects occur regularly (or various ads appear on every visited website), check your browser for any unwanted entries (extensions, plug-ins, add-ons etc.) and remove them immediately. Unwanted programs installed on a computer should be uninstalled too. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
