View Live News Promos redirect removal instructions
What is View Live News Promos?
View Live News Promos is one of the many application that feed users with various advertisements. Apps of this type are categorized as adware and called potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) because people usually download and install them unknowingly. Also, it is common that adware-type apps are designed to operate as information tracking tools - they collect information related to user's browsing habits and/or other data.
Adware is a type of software that is usually designed to feed users with various intrusive advertisements like coupons, banners, surveys, pop-ups, and other forms of ads. When clicked, those ads can execute scripts designed to cause download and/or installation of some PUA. However, in most cases they simply open various deceptive, untrustworthy websites. Either way, such ads should not be trusted (clicked). Also, quite often adware-type apps are designed to gather various information. Usually they collect IP addresses, geolocations, entered search queries, URLs of visited websites and other browsing data. Nevertheless, adware can be designed to gather personal (sensitive) information as well. It is common that people behind such apps (their developers) sell all those details to third parties (cyber criminals) who misuse them in other ways. Adware can be the reason behind unwanted downloads, installations, problems related to browsing safety, online privacy, etc. It is possible that collected information may be misused to steal identities as well. In one way or another, adware should never be downloaded and/or installed.

Free Package Tracker Promos, Maps & Directions Online Promos and Holiday Radio Promos programs are categorized as adware too. There is a great number of them on the Internet. Typically, adware (and other PUAs) are advertised as tools that supposed to be useful in some way (improve browsing experience, deliver various features, etc.). Nevertheless, it is uncommon that these apps operate as they were advertised. More often than not adware is designed only to serve ads and/or gather various information. Besides, this type of software can cause various problems.
How did adware install on my computer?
In most cases people download and install apps of this type unwillingly: by clicking various unreliable, deceptive advertisements or when software developers distribute them by using a "bundling" method. They use this method trick users into downloading and/or installing PUAs together with other software that people download, install intentionally. To be more precise, they include PUAs in setups of other programs and hope that users will download and/or install them without checking and changing "Custom", "Advanced" and other settings of their setups. Simply said, users who download and/or install programs without changing default settings often allow for included PUAs to be downloaded and/or installed too.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
All software should be downloaded from official websites (and through direct download links). Other download and installation tools like third party downloaders, installers, unofficial web pages, Peer-to-Peer networks (such as torrent clients, eMule and so on) should not be used. Tools of this kind can be and often are used to distribute unwanted software. Furthermore, download and installation setups often contain settings like "Custom", "Advanced". Such settings should be always checked and offers to download and/or install additional (unwanted) software declined. Also, it is not safe to click ads that appear on various questionable pages. It is common that those ads lead to other untrustworthy pages or cause unwanted downloads, installations. If there are any unwanted, unknown or suspicious extensions, add-ons or plug-ins installed on a browser or programs of this kind installed on the operating system, then they should be uninstalled immediately. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Malwarebytes for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
