Youractualfeed[.]com pop-up ads removal instructions
What is youractualfeed[.]com?
Youractualfeed[.]com is the address of a website designed to display its content or open a couple of questionable, potentially malicious websites - it depends on its visitor's geolocation/IP address. There is a great number of websites like youractualfeed[.]com, for example, tisinihave[.]biz, tinhisearsh[.]club, centralheat[.]net. None of these pages are trustworthy and should be visited. It is important to mention that users rarely visit them by themselves. In most cases, these pages get opened through clicked deceptive ads, visited untrustworthy pages, or installed potentially unwanted applications (PUAs).
It is popular for websites like youractualfeed[.]com to be used to promote websites asking visitors to enter (provide) personal information, encouraging to download, install unwanted software (e.g., adware, browser hijackers) or pay money for unnecessary services (or products). A couple of examples of pages that youractualfeed[.]com is likely to be designed to open are "Norton Antivirus 2021 Update", "Instagram Copyright Infringement", and "Your System Detected Some Unusual Activity". It is important to mention that most of the pages of this type (including youractualfeed[.]com) are designed to use some clickbait technique to trick visitors into clicking the "Allow" button (a button that allows opened website to show its notifications). Youractualfeed[.]com displays a message encouraging visitors to click the aforementioned button to continue watching a video/loading the page. It is strongly recommended not to allow youractualfeed[.]com or any other page of this kind to show notifications. It is very common for untrustworthy websites to show notifications containing advertising materials (questionable ads, links to other shady websites, etc.).
It is noteworthy that PUAs can serve unwanted, deceptive advertisements and collect data. It is common that apps of this kind generate pop-up ads, banners, various coupons, banners, etc., designed to advertise shady websites. In some cases, those ads can run scripts designed to download, install unwanted apps. In one way or another, those ads should not be trusted/clicked. Most PUAs target browsing-related data such as IP addresses, entered search queries, visited websites, geolocations. Nevertheless, they can be designed to read personal data as well. It is common that collected information is misused for marketing purposes, sold to third parties (potentially cybercriminals). If an app of this kind can access sensitive data (e.g., login credentials, passwords), that data could be used to steal accounts, make unauthorized purchases, transactions, etc.

In conclusion, browsers that regularly open pages like youractualfeed[.]com without user's interference often have some PUA installed on them. Most PUAs are useless and can be the reason behind various problems (e.g., identity theft, issues related to online privacy, browsing safety). Therefore, it is highly advisable not to have apps of this kind installed on browsers or computers. It is worth mentioning that these apps are called potentially unwanted because users rarely download and install them on purpose.
How did adware install on my computer?
Quite often, PUAs are distributed by including them in downloaders, installers for other programs as extra offers. This distribution method is known as "bundling". It is a questionable technique used with the purpose to trick users into downloading or installing PUAs alongside other programs. In most cases, offers to download or install bundled applications can be declined using settings that those downloaders or installers have. For example, "Advanced", "Custom", "Manual", or other settings, or by unticking certain checkboxes. Users agree to download or install both wanted and unwanted software when they leave those settings unchanged. Sometimes users download or install PUAs through deceptive advertisements - they cause it by clicking ads designed to execute certain scripts
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Applications should be downloaded from official websites and through direct links. It is strongly recommended not to use third-party downloaders (or installers), unofficial web pages, Peer-to-Peer networks (e.g., torrent clients, eMule) to download or install any programs (or apps). It is common they are used as channels to distribute unwanted, potentially malicious software. Downloaders and installers with settings like "Custom", "Manual", "Advanced" (or ticked checkboxes) should be checked for additionally included unwanted applications. It is common that the aforementioned settings can be used to decline unwanted offers (opt out unwanted apps). Additionally, it is recommended not to click advertisements that appear on questionable pages. Quite often, ads of this kind are used to promote other shady pages or can cause unwanted downloads, installations. Any unwanted, unknown, or suspicious extensions, add-ons, or plug-ins installed on a browser or 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.
