As a rule, their notifications are used to promote other dubious sites, contain deceptive advertisements, etc.
Web browsers that open questionable pages regularly are likely to have some PUA installed on them. It is noteworthy that quite often such apps are designed to gather various browsing-related or other information. For example, IP addresses, addresses of visited pages, geolocations, entered search queries, or even sensitive, personal details. Another problem is that gathered information could be sold to third parties or monetized in some other way. It is important to know that user's details could be sold to cybercriminals. Also, PUAs can be designed to generate various online advertisements, for example, pop-up ads, coupons, banners, surveys.

How did adware install on my computer?
Typically, users download or install various potentially unwanted applications together with programs that they download and or install intentionally: when PUAs are bundled together with other programs. Usually, PUAs are included in downloaders, installers of other programs as additional offers. Users agree with unwanted offers when they finish downloads, installations without checking downloaders, installers for "Advanced", "Custom", or other settings, or checkboxes. In other words, when they leave the default setting unchanged. Sometimes users cause unwanted downloads, installations without intention by clicking deceptive advertisements that are designed to execute certain scripts.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Do not download software or files through third party downloaders, eMule, torrent clients (and other Peer-to-Peer networks), from various unofficial websites, etc. It is advisable to use official websites and direct links for that. Do not finish downloads and installations without checking if there are any "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar settings or some checkboxes that could be used to decline unwanted offers. Additionally, avoid clicking on advertisements if they are displayed on shady pages. Such ads often are designed to promote untrustworthy pages and sometimes can be designed to download or even install some unwanted, potentially malicious software. Make sure that there are no unwanted suspicious, unknown, or unwanted extensions, plug-ins, or add-ons installed on a 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.
