How to uninstall application promoting tripmydream.space?

Also Known As: Ads by tripmydream.space
Type: Adware
Damage level: Medium

What is tripmydream[.]space?

Tripmydream[.]space is one of the many websites designed to promote shady pages and trick visitors into agreeing to receive notifications (it does one or the other after checking the IP address of its visitors). More examples of pages like tripmydream[.]space are agazinethede[.]biz, pesoaniz[.]com, and attohearally[.]biz.

Another thing that these pages have in common is that users rarely visit them intentionally. In most cases, users open such pages via deceptive ads, through other dubious pages, or by installed potentially unwanted applications (PUAs).

tripmydream[.]space pop-up redirects

In most cases, pages like tripmydream[.]space use a certain clickbait technique to trick their visitors into clicking the "Allow" button/into giving them permission to show notifications. One of the popular clickbait techniques used by websites of this type is to display a fake CAPTCHA test encouraging visitors to click the "Allow" button to prove that they are not robots.

Tripmydream[.]space shows a message encouraging visitors to click that button to continue loading the page. Usually, when websites like this one are allowed to show notifications, they regularly display notifications containing questionable content (e.g., ads for untrustworthy websites, applications).

Therefore, it is highly advisable not to click the "Allow" button when a page like tripmydream[.]space encourages to do it. Another reason to avoid visiting tripmydream[.]space is that it could be used to promote shady websites.

It is common that websites of this type open pages designed to trick visitors into entering personal information (e.g., "Chance To Win The New iPad Pro", "Google Membership Rewards"), downloading and installing unwanted software (e.g., browser hijackers, advertising-supported apps), and other unreliable sites. As mentioned in the introduction paragraph, users do not visit pages like tripmydream[.]space intentionally.

One way to promote them is through potentially unwanted applications that most users install unknowingly. It is noteworthy that PUAs can be designed to gather Internet Protocol addresses, entered search queries, geolocations, addresses of visited pages, other browsing data.

Moreover, some PUAs can be designed to access personal, sensitive data. What is worse, collected data may be sold to third parties (potentially cybercriminals), used to steal online accounts, identities, or monetized in other malicious ways. Additionally, it is common for PUAs to be designed to generate unwanted ads, for example, coupons, pop-up ads, surveys, banners.

Typically, those ads promote potentially malicious pages. Sometimes, they are designed to execute certain scripts and cause unwanted downloads or even installations.

To summarize, tripmydream[.]space and similar websites are rarely visited by users intentionally. In most cases, users open them by clicking deceptive ads, visiting other unreliable pages. Another popular way to promote websites like tripmydream[.]space is through PUAs.

It is common for apps of this kind to be advertised as useful applications that have various features, improve the browsing experience, etc. Although, it is very uncommon for PUAs to be legitimate - most of them are not useful in any way and can cause various problems.

How did adware install on my computer?

It is common for potentially unwanted applications to be downloaded or installed through downloaders and installers for other programs. In such cases, PUAs are included in various downloaders and installers as additional offers. Users can decline those offers using "Custom", "Advanced", "Manual", or other options/settings, or by unticking ticked checkboxes.

When users leave those settings unchanged, they allow for bundled apps to be downloaded or installed as well. This distribution method is known as "bundling". In other cases, users cause unexpected downloads or installations by clicking deceptive advertisements designed to run certain scripts. Typically, ads of this type appear on unreliable pages.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

It is advisable to download applications (and files) from official, trustworthy websites (and via direct links). It is common for other sources like third-party downloaders (or installers), Peer-to-Peer networks (e.g., torrent clients, eMule), unofficial websites, etc., to be used as tools to trick users into downloading or installing unwanted software.

Also, it is recommended to check downloaders and installers for additional offers (included apps) and make sure to decline those offers before finishing downloads and installations. As a rule, it can be done using "Manual", "Custom", "Advanced" or other settings, or by unticking ticked checkboxes.

Additionally, it is recommended not to trust ads that appear on shady pages. Quite often, those advertisements are used to promote untrustworthy websites or even to distribute PUAs.

There should not be any unwanted, suspicious extensions, plug-ins, or add-ons installed on a browser or programs of this kind installed on the operating system. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
