What is LiveStreamNewsToday Promos?
The LiveStreamNewsToday Promos program feeds users with advertisements. Programs of this type belong to a category of adware-type software.
Commonly, adware is designed to display ads and gather information. People often download and install adware inadvertently and, for this reason, LiveStreamNewsToday Promos and other programs of this type are classified as potentially unwanted applications (PUA).
Most adware-type programs serve advertisements in the form of coupons, banners, pop-ups, surveys, etc. These ads conceal underlying content of visited web pages. Furthermore, users who click them are often redirected to untrusted websites. The displayed ads might also cause download or installation of PUAs by executing certain scripts.
Therefore, never click ads displayed by LiveStreamNewsToday or other apps. Note that LiveStreamNewsToday Promos and other installed adware might also record browsing data (IP addresses, geolocations, entered search queries, URLs of visited pages, etc.) and even personal, sensitive information.
The data is often sold to third parties (potentially, cyber criminals) and misused to generate revenue in other ways. In summary, adware users may experience problems relating to browsing safety, online privacy or even become victims of identity theft.
Therefore, you are advised to remove any adware (including LiveStreamNewsToday Promos) from the browser and operating system immediately.

Commonly, adware developers advertise their software as useful, however, programs such as LiveStreamNewsToday Promos do not deliver any value or features and simply cause problems. If LiveStreamNewsToday Promos or other adware is installed on the browser and/or computer, uninstall it immediately.
How did adware install on my computer?
Typically, potentially unwanted apps are installed through the set-ups of other programs. I.e., when they are included into set-ups as "additional offers". In most cases, information about these offers can be found in settings such as "Custom", "Advanced", "Manual", and others.
This PUA distribution method is known as "bundling" and is used to trick people into downloading or installing potentially unwanted apps together with regular programs. PUAs get permission to be downloaded and installed when users fail to check and change the aforementioned settings.
PUAs are also installed inadvertently when people click certain advertisements - these download and install unwanted apps by running scripts (but only if clicked).
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications
Software should be downloaded from official, trustworthy pages and via direct links. Third party downloaders, installers, Peer to-Peer networks (torrent clients, eMule), dubious websites, freeware download pages, and other channels of this kind should not be used to download or install any programs or files.
Download/installation set-ups with settings such as "Advanced", "Custom" often contain offers to download or install unwanted apps. Dismiss these offers before completing the process. Do not click advertisements that are shown on untrusted websites, since they can open other similar pages or download/install unwanted programs.
Remove unwanted, suspicious extensions, plug-ins and add-ons installed on the browser immediately. The same applies to programs of this type that are installed on 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.
