Pushsroutg[.]com redirect removal instructions
What is pushsroutg[.]com?
Pushsroutg[.]com is a rogue website, like many other pages of this type (such as dancewithlittleredpony[.]com, finderient[.]com, thegoodcaster[.]com, etc.), it redirects visitors to various untrustworthy websites. However, it might be showing some questionable content as well. In most cases websites of this type are opened by installed potentially unwanted applications (PUAs). In other words, people do not open by themselves. PUAs also gather browsing data and display intrusive ads.
If installed, PUAs open rogue pages in a new browser window or tab. Once pushsroutg[.]com is opened, it either shows some untrustworthy content or causes redirects to about two or three questionable, potentially malicious sites. What pushsroutg[.]com does depends on its visitor's geolocation. Another issue with these apps is that they display intrusive, deceptive advertisements in forms of pop-ups, banners, surveys, coupons and so on. These ads should not trusted/clicked, they lead to unreliable pages. For example, to sites that promote shady apps, contain adult material and so on. It is worth mentioning that sometimes these ads are capable of executing scripts that download/install potentially malicious programs. In addition, installed PUAs track information, they collect user's Internet Protocol addresses, URLs of viewed pages, entered search queries, geolocations and other, possibly sensitive details. To generate revenue, their developers sell gathered data to other parties (potentially, cyber criminals) who misuse it to generate revenue too. This might cause users trouble, for example, problems with browsing safety, privacy or even lead to identity theft. For these reasons we recommend to uninstall apps of this type immediately.

Unwanted apps are all over the web, quite often they are advertised as useful apps that include various features. Unfortunately, most of them are actually designed only to generate revenue for their developers. In other words, they do not provide any of the advertised features or any other benefits.
How did adware install on my computer?
Most users download and install apps of this type unwillingly. As mentioned above, PUAs can be downloaded/installed through clicked intrusive ads. However, it can happen during downloads/installations of other software too. To be more precise, PUAs often are included in various (download or/and installation) setups. This method is called "bundling", it allows for several apps to be installed or downloaded through a single setup. However, most of the times information about additional apps is not presented properly, it is hidden in setup's settings such as "Custom", "Advanced" and so on. Quite often people forget to check such settings and leave them unchanged, this is the main reason behind most unintentional downloads and installations.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Do not download programs (especially if they are free) from unofficial, untrustworthy pages, through Peer-to-Peer networks like torrent clients, eMule (and other similar programs), third party software downloaders and so on. Additionally, do not install software with third party installers. Download all software from official sources and use direct download links. Moreover, always check all available download or installation setup's settings like "Advanced", "Custom", look for additionally included apps and deselect them. Avoid clicking various ads, this mostly applies to ads displayed on questionable pages. Clicking them often causes redirects to other, potentially malicious pages or unwanted downloads/installations. If such redirects happen regularly or ads appear on all opened pages, then check if there are any unwanted apps or programs installed on browser or computer. Remove all unwanted, suspicious extensions, add-ons, plug-ins and programs as soon as possible. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
