Inspiranius[.]com redirect removal instructions
What is inspiranius[.]com?
inspiranius[.]com is a rogue site, similar to lesindingretne.info, prioritynotifications.com, dingboronhartal.pro and others, it is designed to redirect users to other compromised and/or potentially harmful sites, as well as for proliferation of dubious content. Using social engineering tactics inspiranius[.]com tricks users into enabling notifications, once enabled it launches an intrusive ad campaign. This site is mostly accessed unintentionally, by way of redirection from other rogue sites (opened by intrusive ads) or by PUAs (potentially unwanted applications). inspiranius[.]com checks the visitors' IP (Internet protocol) addresses in order to determine their geolocation. The geolocation dictates the site's next course of action; it can redirect users to different sites and/or begin force-feeding them questionable content. Visiting inspiranius[.]com can lead to encounters with malicious content and even severe system infections.
This rogue site is largely distributed by potentially unwanted applications, opening new browser tabs/windows (without user consent) and redirecting them to inspiranius[.]com. However, it can also spread through various malicious advertisements. In the end, whether through inspiranius[.]com, its ads or other sites it redirects to - the user risks a potential computer infection. PUAs use a wide variety of tools to enable third party content. By doing so, they deliver questionable, intrusive and most importantly - malicious advertisements. These ads (including, but not limited to: pop-ups, banners, coupons and others) hamper the browsing experience by affecting browsing speed and visibility (by covering website content). Clicking on any of the invasive ads can lead to serious safety issues. Such advertisements can redirect users to unreliable and hazardous sites, and even execute scripts that automatically (i.e. without user consent) download/install other unwanted applications and/or malware (malicious software). PUAs can also track data and resell it to third parties. Data of interest includes: IP address, browsing and search engine history, personal details and other information. This data may end up in the hands of cyber criminals, potentially leading to computer infections, endangered privacy and even identity theft. Therefore, any and all PUAs should be removed immediately.

From a user's perspective PUAs serve no positive purpose, however they can wear the guise of legitimate, functional and useful software. The true goal is to bring profit to the designers, at the expense of users. These applications operate by delivering invasive ad campaigns, redirection to possibly harmful websites and data tracking (browsing and personal information). To summarize, PUAs hinder efficient web browsing and endanger users' privacy, identity and computer safety.
How did adware install on my computer?
Potentially unwanted applications do not require explicit user permission to be installed onto a device. They are often distributed through "bundling" - install bundles/packs, which install PUAs along with intended, regular software. Invasive ads are a known distributor of PUAs also. The usual installation process by the average user is common knowledge to developers of such applications. Inattentiveness, haste and tendency to skip steps - can expose a user's computer to PUAs (and the risks they themselves carry). An opt-out is often possible for these unwanted applications, however they are frequently hidden behind "Custom/Advanced" settings. Carelessness while browsing (clicking untrustworthy ads) and a rushed installation process - can lead to unwanted and even malicious applications installing themselves onto a user's device.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Using official and verified sources for downloading software (preferably using direct download links) is paramount, as third party downloaders are more likely to use "bundling". It is advised to follow proper installation procedure: exercising caution, exploring installation settings/options and terms, opting-out from installing any third party content. Prudent browsing is highly recommended, i.e. being careful with various ads and avoiding suspicious sites. Intrusive ads can appear legitimate and provide no solid reason for suspicion, however the sites they often redirect to (pornographic, adult-themed, gambling and etc.) are easier to detect as being untrustworthy. Should users encounter such ads/redirects - it is recommenced to immediately uninstall any suspect applications and browser plug-ins. Caution is a necessity in ensuring device and user safety. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
