View Live News Promos redirect removal instructions
What is View Live News Promos?
View Live News Promos is one of many applications that feeds users with advertisements. Apps of this type are categorized as adware and potentially unwanted applications (PUAs), since people usually download and install them inadvertently. These adware-type apps also operate as information tracking tools - they collect information relating to users' browsing habits and other data.
Adware is software designed to feed users with intrusive coupons, banners, surveys, pop-ups, and other forms of ads. When clicked, these can execute scripts designed to cause download and installation of PUAs, however, in most cases, they simply open deceptive, untrusted websites. In any case, these ads should not be trusted or clicked. Adware-type apps also gather information such as IP addresses, geolocations, entered search queries, URLs of visited websites and other browsing data, however, they might also personal, sensitive details. Criminals behind these apps (the developers) often sell the data to third parties (cyber criminals) who misuse it in other ways. Adware can cause unwanted downloads and installations, and problems relating to browsing safety, online privacy, etc. It is possible that collected information will be misused to steal users' identities. Therefore, adware should never be downloaded or installed.

Free Package Tracker Promos, Maps & Directions Online Promos and Holiday Radio Promos are also categorized as adware. There are many similar programs on the internet. Typically, adware and other PUAs are advertised as tools that are supposedly useful in various ways (improving the browsing experience, delivering features, etc.), however, they rarely operate as advertised. Adware is designed only to serve ads and gather information. Furthermore, this type of software can cause serious problems.
How did adware install on my computer?
In most cases, people download and install these apps inadvertently by clicking dubious, deceptive advertisements or when software developers distribute them using the "bundling" method. They use this method trick users into downloading and installing PUAs together with other, regular software that people wish to download and install intentionally - they include PUAs into the set-ups of other programs and hope that users will proceed without checking and changing "Custom", "Advanced" and other settings of the set-ups. Failing to change the default settings often allows PUAs to be downloaded and installed.
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 such as third party downloaders/installers, unofficial web pages, Peer-to-Peer networks (such as torrent clients, eMule and so on) should not be used - they are often used to distribute unwanted software. Check download and installation settings such as "Custom" and "Advanced" and dismiss offers to download or install additional (unwanted) software. Do not click ads that appear on dubious web pages, since these can lead to other untrusted web pages or cause unwanted downloads and installations. Remove any unwanted, unknown or suspicious extensions, add-ons/plug-ins installed on the browser, and programs of this kind 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.
