Rabsirolcalat[.]info redirect removal instructions
What is rabsirolcalat[.]info?
rabsirolcalat[.]info is a rogue website that shares similarities with knowwoow.com, tinhowsinutha.pro, feenotifyfriends.info, and dozens of others. It causes unwanted redirects to other rogue websites and delivers dubious content. Users often visit websites such as rabsirolcalat[.]info inadvertently - they are redirected by potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) or intrusive advertisements displayed on other untrustworthy sites. PUAs are notorious for infiltrating computers without users' consent. Unwanted redirects are not the only problem caused by unwanted apps - they also deliver intrusive advertisements and gather information.
After successful infiltration, PUAs continually open new browser tab/windows and redirect users to rabsirolcalat[.]info, which then redirects users even further or delivers certain dubious content (or both) - everything depends on the visitor's geolocation, which is determined by checking the Internet Protocol (IP) address. Users might encounter malicious content (delivered by rabsirolcalat[.]info or other websites that it redirects to). Therefore, visiting this site can result in various system infections. PUAs deliver coupons, banners, pop-ups, and other similar advertisements. Ads of this type usually redirect to dubious websites and sometimes even run scripts designed to download/install other potentially unwanted/malicious applications. Therefore, clicking them might result in malware infections. Bear in mind that intrusive advertisements are delivered using 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. Potentially unwanted applications often gather information relating to browsing activity. IP addresses, website URLs visited, and search queries are just some examples from a list of tracked data types. Furthermore, recorded information usually includes personal details that developers share with third parties (potentially, cyber criminals). These people generate revenue by misusing private information. Therefore, having data-tracking apps installed might lead to serious privacy issues or even identity theft. We strongly recommend that you uninstall all potentially unwanted applications immediately.

There are hundreds of potentially unwanted applications, all of which are very similar. By offering "useful features", they attempt to trick users to install, however, most of these apps provide no real value for regular users - their only purpose is to generate revenue for the developers. PUAs cause unwanted redirects, deliver intrusive advertisements, and gather information, thereby diminishing the browsing experience, and posing a threat to your privacy/web browsing safety.
How did adware install on my computer?
Most potentially unwanted applications are distributed using intrusive advertising and a deceptive marketing method called "bundling". Developers hide "bundled" apps behind "Custom/Advanced" settings (or other sections) of the download/installation processes. Furthermore, many users are likely to skip these procedures and click advertisements. This behavior can lead to inadvertent installation of third party applications.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
The main reasons for computer infections are poor knowledge and careless behavior. The key to safety is caution. Therefore, pay close attention during download/installation and browsing the Internet in general. Carefully analyze each step of the download/installation processes and opt-out of additionally-included programs. Avoid using third party downloaders/installers, since these tools are monetized using the "bundling" method. Software should be downloaded from official sources only, preferably using direct download links. Intrusive advertisements usually seem legitimate, however, when clicked, redirect to dubious websites (gambling, adult dating, pornography, and similar). If you encounter these redirects, check the list of installed applications/browser plug-ins and remove all suspicious entries. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
