What is allowsuccess[.]org?
Typically, pages like allowsuccess[.]org get opened after clicking on some shady advertisement, visiting other questionable pages, or installing potentially unwanted applications (PUA). In other words, users do not visit pages like allowsuccess[.]org on purpose.
It is worthwhile to mention that PUAs often are designed to generate advertisements and (or) collect data.
Usually, websites like allowsuccess[.]org are designed to promote other questionable websites or load dubious content. Whether they display shady content or open other (two, three) untrustworthy pages depends on the geolocation of their visitors.
It is common that pages opened by sites like allowsuccess[.]org tend to be used to trick users into downloading browser hijackers, adware-type apps, or other PUAs, providing personal information, etc.
Either way, sites like allowsuccess[.]org rarely open trustworthy pages. Also, they often display deceptive messages to trick users into allowing them to show notifications. Allowsuccess[.]org shows a fake CAPTCHA test encouraging visitors to click the "Allow" button to prove that they are humans/not robots.
It is strongly recommended not to allow websites like allowsuccess[.]org to show their notifications. As a rule, their notifications contain deceptive ads, links to untrustworthy websites, fake virus alerts, etc. A couple of examples of notifications from allowsuccess[.]org are provided below.
As mentioned in the introduction, PUAs can be designed to generate advertisements and collect data. Usually, they display coupons, banners, surveys, pop-up ads, etc. Their ads should not be trusted (clicked).
It is common that they are used to promote questionable websites. Sometimes those ads can run scripts designed to download, or even install unwanted software.
Examples of details that PUAs gather are IP addresses, entered search queries, addresses of visited websites, geolocations (or other browsing-related details). In some cases, PUAs can access personal data (e.g., passwords, telephone numbers, credit card details).
Either way, it is strongly advisable not to have questionable apps that can gather data installed on browsers or computers. Their developers could use collected information for marketing purposes. They could also sell it to third parties (potentially cybercriminals), or monetize it using some other way.

To summarize, it is strongly recommended not to trust pages like allowsuccess[.]org (or pages that they promote), or allow them to show notifications. Also, it is recommended not to have any PUA installed on a browser or the operating system.
It is worthwhile to mention that most users download and install PAUs unknowingly. Another detail about PUAs is that they are useless to their users and designed only to generate revenue for their developers.
How did adware install on my computer?
In most cases, potentially unwanted applications are distributed by bundling them together with other programs, mainly free programs. In such cases, PUAs are included in downloaders, installers of those programs as extra offers.
Those offers can be declined before finishing downloads, installations using "Advanced", "Custom", "Manual", or other settings, or by unticking checkboxes in downloaders, installers.
Users download or install bundled applications when they do not check and change the aforementioned settings (or do not untick checkboxes). In some cases, users download or install PUAs through deceptive advertisements. More precisely, by clicking on ads that can run certain scripts.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Applications, files should not be downloaded from unofficial pages, via torrent clients, eMule (and other Peer-to-Peer networks), third-party downloaders, etc. They should be downloaded from official websites and using direct links.
Also, downloads and installations should be finished only after checking all the available "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar settings and declining offers to download, install unwanted applications. Advertisements on questionable websites (e.g., on pages relating to gambling, adult dating) should not be clicked.
It is common that those ads are used to advertise untrustworthy websites or distribute unwanted software. Unwanted, uspicious apps (extensions, add-ons, or plug-ins) installed on a browser and programs of this kind installed on the operating system should be removed.
If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
