Asonsbirthi[.]pro redirect removal instructions
What is asonsbirthi[.]pro?
Asonsbirthi[.]pro is an address of a website which contains questionable content. Nevertheless, it redirects its visitors to other untrustworthy websites as well. Asonsbirthi[.]pro functions like many other web pages of this kind, for example, pushstack[.]co, readmenewz[.]com and shireamentsp[.]info. It is worth mentioning that most people end up on such websites unintentionally. They get redirected to them by potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) that are installed on their browsers and/or operating systems. Additionally, these apps usually are designed to display various ads and collect details related to user's browsing habits.
Typically, once visited, websites like asonsbirthi[.]pro open about two or three other shady websites or they display questionable content. Their behaviour depends on visitor's IP address (geolocation). One way or another, neither pages like asonsbirthi[.]pro or pages that get opened through them can be trusted. Also, asonsbirthi[.]pro is designed to trick visitors into giving it a permission to show notifications. It uses a clickbait technique for that: it says that if a visitor wants to download some file, then he needs to enable browser notifications by clicking the "Allow" button. When websites like asonsbirthi[.]pro are allowed to show notifications, then they start to deliver notifications that contain various ads and other content that should not be trusted. Furthermore, most of the aforementioned PUAs are designed to display banners, pop-up ads, coupons, surveys, and other intrusive advertisements. Typically, people who click them get redirected to various untrustworthy websites or they allow those ads to run scripts that are designed to download or even install unwanted, potentially malicious software. Moreover, most PUAs operate as information tracking tools, they gather information such as user's IP addresses, geolocations, addresses of visited pages, entered search queries, etc. However, some PUAs record sensitive data as well. What is worse, their developers send gathered information to third parties (potentially cyber criminals). Both parties misuse user's data to generate revenue, users who have PUAs on their browsers and/or computers installed might become victims of identity theft or experience other problems (related to privacy, browsing safety, and so on). That is why we recommend to uninstall any installed PUA (or PUAs) as soon as possible.

As a rule, PUAs are being advertised as useful, legitimate applications that supposed to deliver various features. Unfortunately, most apps of this type do not function as advertised and are useless. More often than not they just perform tasks that help their developers to generate revenue: they force users to visit shady pages, display ads and/or gather various information.
How did adware install on my computer?
Most people download and install PUAs unintentionally: through intrusive ads or together with some other, usually free software. Unwanted downloads and/or installations through other software happen when developers use a deceptive marketing method called "bundling". It means that they include PUAs in setups of various programs. However, they hide information about additionally included apps in "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar settings of download or installation setups of software. When people leave those settings unchanged they agree with offers to download or install software that is distributed through a certain setup.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
We advise to download software from official websites and avoid using third party software downloaders (or installers), tools like Peer-to-Peer networks (eMule, torrent clients), unofficial websites, and so on. Also, it is important to download and install software properly, if a setup contains settings like "Advanced", "Custom", then they should be checked and offers to download and/or install additional software dismissed. It is worth mentioning that there are many intrusive ads that, if clicked, redirect people to untrustworthy websites or start unwanted download, installation processes. Quite often ads of this kind are displayed on pages related to gambling, adult dating, pornography, and other shady sites. If there are any unwanted, unknown extensions, plug-ins, add-ons installed on a web browser, then they should be uninstalled as soon as possible. Software of this kind that is installed on the operating system should be uninstalled too. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
