Tutupdate29[.]com redirect removal instructions
What is tutupdate29[.]com?
It is common that browsers open websites like tutupdate29[.]com when they have some potentially unwanted application (PUA) installed on them. In other words, users do not visit such pages on purpose/intentionally. It is worthwhile to mention that websites like tutupdate29[.]com can be promoted via other shady pages and dubious advertisements as well.
Typically, PUAs open websites like tutupdate29[.]com in a new browser window or tab. Once such websites are visited, they either open a couple (about two, three) other shady pages or display questionable content. It depends on the geolocation of their visitors. In one way or another, tutupdate29[.]com and sites that it promotes cannot be trusted. Also, this site is designed to ask for a permission to show notifications. Typically, such pages display notifications that contain links to shady pages, deceptive ads, etc. Research shows that this page offers to install some questionable application. If it gets that permission, it creates a shortcut with Google Chrome icon and "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome_proxy.exe" --profile-directory=Default --app-id=dlmgmjleiegajkajobpecjlndcegofmn" target in its properties on a Desktop. If opened/executed, that shortcut opens a window of a modified Google Chrome version and some questionable search engine that contains shady ads. It is strongly recommended not to allow tutupdate29[.]com to show notifications or agree to install aforementioned app/create the aforementioned shortcut on a desktop. It is worthwhile to mention that PUAs that promote sites like tutupdate29[.]com can be designed to collect IP addresses, entered search queries, addresses of visited websites, geolocation (and/or other browsing data), or even personal details. Their developers could sell collected data to third parties (potentially cyber criminals) or misuse it to generate revenue in other ways. Also, PUAs can be designed to serve various advertisements like coupons, banners, surveys, pop-ups, and other types of ads. When clicked, those ads could open unreliable websites or download and/or install various unwanted applications by running certain scripts.

How did adware install on my computer?
It some cases it happens when users click deceptive advertisements that are designed to execute certain scripts. Although, more often users cause unwanted downloads and/or installations when they download and/or install programs without declining offers to download and/or install apps that are included in their setups. It is common that PUAs are included in various download and/or installation setups as additional offers, such offers can be declined via "Custom", "Advanced" or other settings of setups (or by unticking certain checkboxes). However, quite often users leave the aforementioned settings unchanged and that is how they allow for PUAs to be downloaded and installed together with intentionally downloaded and/or installed programs.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
It is advised to download software from official, trustworthy pages and not to use third party downloaders, Peer-to-Peer networks and other similar sources. Also, it is recommended not to finish any download or installation process without checking if a download and/or installation setup has any "Custom", "Advanced" (or other) settings that could be used to decline offers to download and/or install unwanted apps. Furthermore, it is advised not to click ads on questionable websites. Usually they are designed to open untrustworthy websites, sometimes they can be designed to cause unwanted downloads, or even installations. If there are any suspicious extensions, add-ons or plug-ins already installed on a web browser, then they should be removed. Software of this kind that is installed on a computer should be uninstalled too. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Malwarebytes for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
