ladsblue[.]com redirect removal instructions
What is ladsblue[.]com?
You are advised to avoid the ladsblue[.]com website, since it redirects to other deceptive websites that attempt to trick people into providing various details, downloading and installing dubious applications, and so on. People generally arrive at ladsblue[.]com inadvertently - they are redirected to it by potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) installed on browsers or operating systems. These apps are categorized as PUAs, since people usually download and/or install them accidentally.
ladsblue[.]com redirects visitors to other sites such as apple.com-clean-mac[.]website. These often trick people into downloading and installing dubious software that can supposedly remove fake viruses (which were apparently 'detected'). Typically, these websites encourage visitors to install specific software to remove viruses immediately, otherwise their computers will supposedly be damaged further. None of the deceptive websites or apps promoted through them can be trusted. Note that ladsblue[.]com can lead to websites such as "You've Made The 5-billionth Search". These sites inform visitors that they have won 'prizes' and that they must claim them by completing various surveys. Scammers use these web pages to collect details that can be misused to generate revenue. These are just some examples of web pages that can be opened through ladsblue[.]com - research shows that it can lead many other untrustworthy, deceptive sites. Browsers commonly open web pages such as ladsblue[.]com due to PUAs installed on browsers or operating systems. PUAs usually display unwanted ads and gather details relating to users' browsing habits including, for example, IP addresses, geolocations, entered search queries, URLs of of visited sites, and so on. Developers send the information to other people (potentially cyber criminals) who misuse it to generate revenue. These apps also display unwanted ads. For example, coupons, banners, surveys, pop-ups, and others. If clicked, these open untrustworthy or even malicious web pages, or they run scripts that cause download/installation of unwanted applications. To avoid these problems, uninstall all PUAs immediately.

Many websites lead visitors to dubious web pages. Some examples are talkreply[.]com, track.nuxues[.]com, and news-jupiter[.]com. Typically, these are opened by PUAs installed on the system. These apps can lead to unwanted downloads and installations, problems with privacy, browsing safety, or even identity theft. In most cases, they deliver no real value and are designed only to generate revenue for the developers.
How did adware install on my computer?
People often download and install these apps through the set-ups of other software. This happens when developers use a marketing method called "bundling" - they include PUAs into download and installation set-ups and do not disclose this information clearly. Offers to download or install unwanted apps are typically hidden in settings such as "Custom", "Advanced", and so on. Furthermore many people download and install their programs without checking the settings - in this way, they are tricked into additional unwanted downloads and installations. Additionally, this can happen through intrusive, deceptive ads. If clicked, many ads execute scripts designed to download and install PUAs.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications
Download files and programs from official websites and through direct download links. Do not trust Peer-to-Peer networks (torrent clients, eMule), unofficial pages, third party downloaders/installers, or other similar sources/tools to download or install software. Check all settings available in download/installation set-ups and dismiss offers to download or install unwanted applications. Do not click ads displayed on dubious web pages, since they can redirect people to dubious websites. In some cases, they might cause unwanted downloads and installations. To prevent your browser from showing ads or opening unwanted web pages, remove all unwanted or suspicious extensions, add-ons, and plug-ins installed on the browser and programs of this type installed on the computer. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
