Oritychiev[.]top redirect removal instructions
What is oritychiev[.]top?
As a rule, users do not visit websites like this one on purpose - users are forced to visit such sites when some potentially unwanted application (PUA) that is installed on a browser opens them. Apps of this type tend to be designed to serve ads and/or collect various data as well. They are called PUAs because in most cases users download and/or install them unknowingly. Oritychiev[.]top is not the only website that is promoted via PUAs, some more examples are cpmlink[.]net and hilanfavouris[.]top and ritishdeliv[.]top.
Potentially unwanted apps force users to visit sites like oritychiev[.]top by occasionally opening them in a new browser window or tab. Once visited, these sites either open other (about two, three) untrustworthy pages or display questionable content. What they do after being visited depends on the geolocation of their visitors. Another issue with most websites like oritychiev[.]top is that they are designed to use some clickbait technique to deceive their visitors into clicking the "Allow" button which allows websites to show their notifications. Oritychiev[.]top says to click "Allow" button to continue browsing the page. As a rule, such pages (if allowed) show notifications that contain links to shady websites, deceptive advertisements, etc. As mentioned in the introduction, PUAs can be designed not only to promote pages like oritychiev[.]top, but also to serve advertisements and/or collect various information. After installation they could start serving pop-up ads, banners, coupons, surveys, etc. If clicked, those ads could open untrustworthy pages, or cause download and/or installation of some unwanted software by executing certain scripts. Also, PUAs can be designed to collect browsing data like geolocations, IP addresses, addresses of visited websites, entered search queries and other data of this kind. In some cases they may be capable of accessing sensitive information as well. Moreover, collected information may be misused to generate revenue, for example, developers may sell it to third parties (potentially cyber criminals). It means that PUAs can be the reason behind problems related online privacy, browsing safety, or even identity theft.

To sum up, most of the apps of this type do not include any features, improve browsing experience and/or are useful in some other way. They are designed only to generate revenue for developers by promoting various websites, serve advertisements and/or gather certain information. Also, they can be the culprit of various issues. These are the main reasons why apps of this type should never be downloaded and/or installed.
How did adware install on my computer?
It is common for potentially unwanted apps to be distributed by including them in download and/or installation setups of other programs as extra offers. Usually offers to download and/or install them can be declined in "Advanced", "Custom" or other settings of setups. PUAs are being allowed to be downloaded and/or installed together with the desired programs when users complete downloads and/or installations without changing the aforementioned settings (or unticking certain available checkboxes). This distribution method is known as "bundling". In some cases unwanted downloads and/or installations can be caused by clicking deceptive advertisements that are designed to execute certain scripts.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
It is advised not to trust/click advertisements that appear on various questionable websites (e.g., on pages related to pornography, adult dating, gambling). It is common that those ads are designed to open various untrustworthy, potentially malicious websites or even cause downloads, installations of unwanted apps. Also, it is advised to download software, files only from official websites, and via direct links, and not to use third party downloaders (and installers), Peer-to-Peer networks (e.g., torrent clients, eMule), questionable, unofficial websites, etc., for that. One more important thing is to always check if download and/or installation setups have settings like "Custom", "Advanced" settings and if they can be used to decline offers to download and/or install potentially unwanted applications. Any unwanted, suspicious apps (extensions, plug-ins or add-ons) that already are installed on a web browser should be uninstalled. The same should done with software of this kind that is 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.
