Sites such as mysuccesspaths[.]com usually cause redirects to others that promote potentially unwanted apps (PUAs). For example, browser hijackers or adware. Browser hijacker apps change browser settings (promote fake search engines) and gather browsing data.
Adware-type apps serve users with unwanted ads that usually redirect to dubious web pages or even cause unwanted downloads/installations. Other web pages opened by mysuccesspaths[.]com might be created to trick people into downloading and installing dubious applications.
These web pages display notifications about 'detected viruses' and encourage visitors to remove them with various apps, however, the detections are fake and websites of this kind should not be trusted (or apps promoted on them, downloaded). Additionally, when opened, mysuccesspaths[.]com asks permission to show notifications.
When web pages such as mysuccesspaths[.]com are able to show notifications, they display ads and other unwanted content that, if clicked, can lead to potentially malicious websites.
In summary, do not visit mysuccesspaths[.]com or other sites of this kind, since they are used to promote other untrustworthy web pages, which might be the reason for a number of computer problems.

How did adware install on my computer?
People generally download and install PUAs unintentionally when they click dubious advertisements or download/install software without paying attention to the setup details.
To trick people into unwanted installations/downloads, developers use a deceptive marketing method called "bundling" - they hide unwanted apps in download/installation set-ups settings such as "Advanced", "Custom", etc. Furthermore, many people often leave these settings unchecked and unchanged, thereby leading to download and installation of various unwanted applications.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Do not download software from unofficial/untrustworthy websites, using torrent clients, eMule, or other Peer-to-Peet networks, third party downloaders, or other such tools.
The safest way to download programs and files is using official websites and direct download links. Check all "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar options when downloading and installing software, especially if it is free. Dismiss suggestions to download/install unwanted apps.
Avoid clicking dubious ads, since they can open adult/untrustworthy, deceptive websites or cause unwanted downloads/installations. If these redirects happen randomly, or intrusive ads appear regularly, check installed extensions, add-ons, and plug-ins on the web browser and uninstall suspicious/unwanted apps immediately.
Additionally, ensure that there are no unknown, unwanted programs installed on the operating system. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
