showeverig[.]info redirect removal instructions
What is showeverig[.]info?
When opened, showeverig[.]info opens various untrustworthy websites or loads dubious content. This is a rogue website which is very similar to wbamedia[.]net, sawhitpew[.]site, fastnewstream[.]com and many others of this type. Typically, visitors do not open these sites intentionally - they are opened by browsers that with potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) installed on them. PUAs gather information relating to users' browsing habits and display intrusive advertisements.
When an installed PUA opens showeverig[.]info, this website displays dubious content or redirects visitors to other (typically, about 2-3) untrusted, potentially malicious web pages. The way it behaves depends on visitors' geolocations. Like most websites of this type, showeverig[.]info attempts to trick visitors into allowing it to show notifications using a 'clickbait' technique. It states that a file can be prepared for downloading by clicking the "Allow" button, however, clicking it simply allows showeverig[.]info to show notifications that might contain deceptive advertisements, links to untrusted websites, etc. Furthermore, PUAs often gather information, mostly browsing data such as IP addresses, entered search queries, addresses of visited pages, geolocations, and so on. Installed PUAs might also record sensitive, personal details. People behind these apps sell the information to third parties (potentially, cyber criminals). The data is misused to generate revenue. These actions put users at risk of problems relating to online privacy, browsing safety. The data might also be misused to steal identities. PUAs commonly feed users with advertisements, which are usually displayed in the form of pop-ups, coupons, banners, surveys, and so on. People who click them are redirected to untrusted websites or they allow these ads to execute scripts designed to download and install unwanted apps. For these reasons, you are advised to uninstall all PUAs immediately and to avoid them in future.

How did adware install on my computer?
PUAs are downloaded and/or installed through certain deceptive advertisements or via the set-ups of other software. PUAs are distributed by including them into download/installation set-ups, usually of free software. This distribution method is known as "bundling" and is used by developers to trick people into downloading and/or installing PUAs together with other programs. Developers attempt to achieve this by hiding information about additionally-included apps in "Advanced", "Custom" and other similar settings of the set-ups. Generally, they succeed when people download or install software without checking and changing these settings. PUAs are also downloaded and installed through deceptive ads, which execute certain scripts, however, this can only happen if such ads are clicked.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications
Do not use third party downloaders, installers, unofficial websites, various Peer-to-Peer networks or other similar channels/tools to download or install software. The best and safest way to it to use official, trustworthy websites and direct download links. Check all settings (such as "Advanced" "Custom") of the download/installation setup and dismiss offers to download or install unwanted, additionally-included programs. Never click intrusive ads, since they can redirect to untrusted websites or lead to unwanted downloads/installations. Browsers commonly open dubious web pages or display ads due to installed PUAs. In such cases, we recommend that you check for any unwanted, suspicious extensions, plug-ins and add-ons installed on the browser and remove them. Also apply this to programs of this kind that are installed on the operating system. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Malwarebytes for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
