What is hellopushworld[.]com?
When opened, hellopushworld[.]com causes redirects to rogue websites or loads dubious content. There are many websites that operate in a similar manner to hellopushworld[.]com. Some examples are ultimate-captcha[.]com, pushbesttools[.]com and detailorproteradie[.]info.
Generally, visitors do not open these sites intentionally. Typically, they are redirected to them by potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) installed on browsers and/or operating systems. Furthermore, most PUAs display intrusive ads and record browsing data.
Websites opened through hellopushworld[.]com are often designed to promote dubious software and might also contain ads and other unwanted content. If hellopushworld[.]com does not open any web pages, it loads dubious content. This depends on visitors' geolocations.
In any case, you should avoid hellopushworld[.]com and similar sites. Furthermore, this site attempts to trick users to allow display of notifications using a 'clickbait' technique. It states that a video can be played only by clicking the "Allow" button.
If clicked, this allows hellopushworld[.]com to show notifications that might contain untrustworthy ads, links to dubious web pages, and so on. Note that PUAs usually serve intrusive ads in the form of pop-ups, coupons, banners, surveys and others. Most lead to untrustworthy websites or cause unwanted downloads and installations by running certain scripts.
PUAs can also gather user-information such as IP addresses, entered search queries, URLs of visited websites, geolocations and so on. Developers sell the information to third parties (often, cyber criminals) who misuse it to generate revenue.

It most cases, developers of PUAs promote their apps as legitimate and useful, however, this is to trick people into downloading, installing and using their rogue apps. Most people do not download or install PUAs intentionally. These apps deliver no useful features and are designed only to generate revenue for the developers.
PUAs can cause problems relating to browsing safety, privacy, and some might be used to steal identities. Therefore, remove all PUAs from the operating system and browser/s immediately.
How did adware install on my computer?
PUAs are generally downloaded and/or installed through intrusive advertisements (that people click) or during download/installation of other software. Developers often include unwanted apps into the set-ups of other programs, however, they do not disclose this information properly.
They hide offers to download and install additional apps in settings such as "Custom", "Advanced", and so on. This distribution method of rogue software is called "bundling" - this is a deceptive marketing method that developers use to trick people into downloading and installing unwanted apps with regular software.
Furthermore, many people often leave the aforementioned settings unchanged, thereby granting PUAs permission to be downloaded and installed by default.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications
All files and software should be downloaded from official websites, especially if it is free. Do not trust other channels or tools such as third party downloaders, installers, unofficial, dubious pages, and Peer-to-Peer networks (e.g., torrent clients, eMule). These sources/tools are commonly used to promote unwanted, possibly malicious applications.
Software should be downloaded only from official websites and through direct download links. Check all set-ups that contain settings such as "Custom" and "Advanced", and decline offers to download or install unwanted software before completing the process.
Do not click ads displayed on unofficial, dubious web pages (e.g., adult dating, pornography, gambling websites, etc.). Typically, these cause redirects to potentially malicious sites or unwanted downloads and installations. These ads might be also be displayed on legitimate sites.
Stop browsers from opening untrustworthy sites and/or showing ads by removing unwanted or suspicious extensions, add-ons, and plug-ins. Additionally, it might be necessary to uninstall programs of this kind from 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.
