Demetravertando[.]bar pop-up ads removal instructions
What is demetravertando[.]bar ?
Demetravertando[.]bar is the address of an untrustworthy page. It is similar to takhiza[.]com, admntrk[.]com, netflowcorp[.]com, and hundreds of other websites of this type. As a rule, these pages get opened via deceptive advertisements, potentially malicious websites or by potentially unwanted applications (PUAs). In other words, it is uncommon for such pages to be visited by users on purpose/intentionally. It is worthwhile to mention that most users download and install PUAs unintentionally as well.
In most cases, pages like demetravertando[.]bar are designed to open various scam websites like "Your McAfee Subscription Has Expired", "Get The New iPhone 11 Pro", deceptive sites used to trick visitors into downloading potentially unwanted applications (e.g., adware, browser hijackers or other unwanted software), and so on. It is noteworthy that after visiting a website like demetravertando[.]bar, it opens two, three untrustworthy pages. Depending on visitor's geolocation, instead of opening untrustworthy sites, pages like demetravertando[.]bar can load their content. In most cases, they use some clickbait technique to trick visitors into clicking the "Allow" button and agreeing to receive notifications. Demetravertando[.]bar displays a fake CAPTCHA test with a message encouraging visitors to click the "Allow" button to confirm that they are not robots . Typically, when websites like demetravertando[.]bar are allowed to show notifications, they show shady advertisements, promote potentially malicious sites, etc. Therefore, it is strongly recommended not to agree to receive notifications from websites like demetravertando[.]bar.
It is noteworthy that PUAs can be designed to collect browsing-related details and generate advertisements. Some examples of details that most PUAs target are geolocations, entered search queries, URLs of visited (opened) websites, Internet Protocol addresses. However, some PUAs can read sensitive information, like credit card details, passwords. In addition to that, apps of this kind can be designed to generate advertisements. For example, banners, coupons, surveys, various pop-up ads. Usually, their ads are used to advertise shady pages. Sometimes, those ads are designed to cause unwanted, unexpected downloads, or even installations by executing certain scripts. These are the main reasons why users should never have any PUAs installed on browsers or computers and remove already installed ones as soon as possible.

To summarize, users who have some PUAs installed on a browser or the operating system are likely to encounter problems with browsing safety, online privacy, or other issues. As a rule, apps of this kind are useless to their users and designed only to generate revenue for the individuals behind them. Usually, potentially unwanted apps are designed to display advertisements, gather various data and (or) promote various potentially malicious pages. Therefore, it is strongly recommended to avoid downloading and installing apps of this kind.
How did adware install on my computer?
It is common that users download or install PUAs either by clicking deceptive advertisements that are designed to execute certain scripts or when developers distribute those apps by using a deceptive marketing method called "bundling". When developers use that method, they seek to trick users into downloading or installing PUAs together with other software. To achieve this, they include PUAs in downloaders or installers for other programs as additional offers. Typically, such offers can be found in "Advanced", "Custom and other similar settings and declined before finishing downloads, installations. Users allow for included apps to be downloaded or installed together with other programs when they leave those settings unchanged. It is noteworthy that PUAs are bundled mainly with free programs.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Channels, tools like third-party downloaders, installers, Peer-to-Peer networks (e.g., torrent clients, eMule), questionable pages, and so on, can be used to distribute PUAs, or even malicious applications. For this reason, it is recommended to download all files and programs from official websites and through direct links. Downloaders and installers that have any checkboxes or settings like "Custom", "Advanced" should be checked for bundled applications, and unwanted offers should be opted out. Advertisements on dubious websites (e.g., on pages related to pornography, gambling, adult dating) should not be clicked - those as tend to be designed to advertise untrustworthy, potentially malicious websites. In some cases, by clicking those ads, users cause unwanted downloads, installations. Unwanted applications (extensions, plug-ins, or add-ons) installed on a web browser should be removed. The same should be applied to the software of this kind installed on a computer. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
