Tinhoranding[.]info redirect removal instructions
What is tinhoranding[.]info ?
Tinhoranding[.]info is a website that people do not open on purpose. It is a rogue page that causes redirects to other untrustworthy pages or displays questionable content. Tinhoranding[.]info is similar to many other sites of this type, some of them are verytearfoilew[.]info, geting[.]pro and newsfrog[.]me. As a rule, these websites are opened by potentially unwanted applications (PUAs). When installed, they usually display ads and collect data too.
Typically, installed PUA opens tinhoranding[.]info (or other website of this type) in a new browser window or tab. After that this rogue page causes redirects to other untrustworthy sites (typically, about 2-3), or it delivers some shady content. The way tinhoranding[.]info behaves depends on its visitor's location. Another issue with these unwanted apps is intrusive advertisements: PUAs display pop-up ads, coupons, banners, surveys and other graphical content that is placed in the foreground of a website. If clicked, these advertisements either redirect users to some unreliable, deceptive site or execute scripts that are designed to download or/and install one or another unwanted (potentially malicious) software. Furthermore, most PUAs are designed to collect various data too, including IP addresses, URLs of visited sited, search queries, locations and other, possibly personal information. Their developers share it with other parties who misuse it to generate income. Gathered data might be shared with cyber criminals too.

PUAs might cause problems with browsing safety, online privacy and other issues. Some people might even become victims of identity theft. It is not recommended to trust apps of this type, even if they are presented as legitimate apps. We strongly recommended to uninstall installed PUAs as soon as possible.
How did adware install on my computer?
Typically, developers distribute PUAs using deception - they use a marketing method that is called "bundling". To trick people into downloading and installing PUAs within other, wanted (intentionally downloaded/installed) software, they bundle unwanted apps into its setup. Besides, they hide this information in "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar settings/options. Unintentional downloads and installations occur when people download and install programs without checking the setup and its options. Intrusive (and deceptive) ads, if clicked, can cause unwanted installations or downloads too.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
We recommend to download and install software with care. Do not download (or install) it using unofficial/untrustworthy websites, Peer-to-Peer networks like torrent clients, eMule, etc., various third party downloaders/installers and other unreliable sources. The safest channels for software downloads are official pages and direct download links. Additionally, check what are "Custom", "Advanced" settings of any download or installation setup and opt-out potentially unwanted apps that are bundled into it. Note, intrusive ads should not be trusted, most of them redirect users to deceptive, unreliable websites. In some cases they download or install PUAs as well. If a browser opens such pages or displays intrusive ads, then we recommend to uninstall all unwanted/unknown browser applications such as plug-ins, extensions or add-ons. Same goes for unwanted programs that are installed on the operating system (computer). If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
