Damn Good Recipe Promos redirect removal instructions
What is Damn Good Recipe Promos?
Damn Good Recipe Promos is an application which generates revenue for its developers by feeding users with various advertisements. Therefore, it is classified as adware. Quite often apps of this type not only serve ads but also collect browsing-related and/or other data. More often than not users download and install adware unknowingly, for this reason apps of this type are called potentially unwanted applications (PUAs).
Typically, adware serves banners, coupons, surveys, pop-ups, and other type of advertisements. Either way, users who click ads that appear due to installed adware like Damn Good Recipe Promos often end up on untrustworthy pages or allow those ads to execute scripts designed to cause download and/or installation of some other PUA. Furthermore, quite many adware-type apps are designed to operate as information tracking tools. In most cases they collect browsing data (e.g., addresses of visited pages, entered search queries, IP addresses, geolocations), however, some apps of this type can read sensitive information as well. Gathered data may be misused to generate revenue by selling it to third parties (potentially cyber criminals) or in some other ways. Either way, such actions could cause users problems related to browsing safety, online privacy and/or other issues like identity theft. Therefore, it is not safe to have apps like Damn Good Recipe Promos installed on a browser and/or operating system.

There is a great number of ad-supportive programs on the Internet, some examples are The Government Forms Promos, Best Coupons Now Promos and LiveStreamNewsToday Promos. Most of them are promoted as useful apps that supposed to include some features and/or deliver some value. However, most of them are designed only to generate revenue for their developers and put their users at risk or various problems.
How did adware install on my computer?
In most cases adware-type apps and other PUAs infiltrate systems and/or browsers without a direct permission, they get installed alongside with other software that has them included in their setups, or through clicked deceptive advertisements. It is common that PUAs are included in download and/or installation setups as additional offers. In most cases such offers are mentioned in their options like "Manual", "Custom", "Advanced". Users agree with those offers when they download and install programs that have PUAs included in their setups without changing any of the aforementioned settings. Downloads, installations via deceptive ads happen when users click ads that are designed to execute certain scripts.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
The safest way to download software is by using trustworthy, official websites and direct links. It is not recommended to use third party downloaders, torrent clients, eMule (and other Peer-to-Peer networks), unofficial, questionable websites, and other similar channels for that. Iy is not safe to install programs through third party installers too. Furthermore, download and installation setups should be always checked for offers to download and/or install additionally included apps. Usually those offers are mentioned in their "Custom", "Advanced" and other settings. Intrusive ads that appear on pages relate to gambling, adult dating, pornography and other questionable websites should bot be clicked. Such ads tend to be designed to open shady pages. In some cases they cause unwanted downloads, installations. If there are any suspicious add-ons, extensions or plug-ins installed on a browser and/or programs of this kind installed a computer, then they should be uninstalled right away. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Malwarebytes for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
