How to remove applications designed to promote byluxrayor.com?

Also Known As: Ads by byluxrayor.com
Type: Adware
Damage level: Medium

What is byluxrayor[.]com?

Byluxrayor[.]com is designed to open questionable pages and display deceptive content (byluxrayor[.]com does one or the another after checking visitor's IP address). It is very common for websites of this type to be promoted through other pages pf this kind, potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) and ads that appear mainly on unreliable websites.

byluxrayor[.]com pop-up redirects

Byluxrayor[.]com in detail

At the time of the research, byluxrayor[.]com loaded message encouraging to click the "Allow" button to subscribe to notifications and continue watching some video. It is very common for websites like byluxrayor[.]com to use a clickbait technique to trick visitors into allowing them to show notifications (e.g., they can display a fake CAPTCHA test suggesting that visitors need to click the "Allow" button to prove that they are not robots).

In one way or the other, it is not recommended to agree to receive notifications from websites like byluxrayor[.]com. Typically, their notifications contain links to shady websites, questionable advertisements, and so on.

Another reason to avoid visiting byluxrayor[.]com and similar pages is that it may open deceptive pages designed to trick visitors into installing adware, browser hijackers, and other PUAs, providing personal information (such as credit card details, login credentials), and so on. It is common for pages like byluxrayor[.]com to be used to promote pages similar to "Your Chrome Is Severely Damaged By 13 Malware!", "Your Device Might Have Security Issues", and "Chance To Win The Brand New Playstation 5", etc.

Quite often, browsers open untrustworthy pages (including pages like byluxrayor[.]com) because they have some PUA installed on them. Apps of this kind can be designed to generate advertisements and gather various data as well.

More about PUAs

Ads (e.g., banners, coupons, pop-up ads, surveys) displayed by PUAs promote questionable websites. In some cases, their ads are designed to download or even install unwanted software by running certain scripts.

Data (e.g., IP addresses, geolocations, entered search queries, addresses of visited pages) collected by PUAs could be misused for marketing purposes, sold to third parties, or monetized in other ways. Sometimes, PUAs gather sensitive data (e.g., credit card details, passwords) that could be used to steal identities, personal accounts, make unauthorized purchases, etc.

Websites like byluxrayor[.]com and PUAs in general

There are lots of websites like byluxrayor[.]com on the Internet. Some examples are trking[.]xyz, convmusic[.]com, and 1music-online[.]me. Most of them are designed to display dubious content and open other websites of this kind.

PUAs are similar too: they promote shady pages, generate advertisements, and (or) gather various information. In one way or another, apps of this kind are rarely useful and should never be installed.

How did adware install on my computer?

Sometimes users download or install unwanted applications through deceptive advertisements designed to run certain scripts (they cause it by clicking those ads). Although, more often, users download or install those apps alongside other programs.

It is common for PUAs to be distributed by bundling them together with other programs. In such cases, downloaders, installers have "Custom", "Advanced", "Manual" or other settings, or ticked checkboxes.

Users can decline unwanted offers before finishing downloads, installations - it can be done via settings/options mentioned in the previous paragraph.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

Downloaders and installers that have ticked checkboxes, "Custom", "Advanced" and other settings should be examined - they should be checked for offers to download or install potentially unwanted apps. Unwanted offers should be declined before finishing downloads or installations.

Software and files should be downloaded from official websites and via direct links. It is not safe to use Peer-to-Peer networks (e.g., torrent clients, eMule), unofficial websites, third-party downloaders, installers, etc., to download or install any programs.

Advertisements appearing on shady websites should not be trusted (clicked) as well. It is common for those ads to be used to promote untrustworthy websites (sometimes, those ads can cause unexpected downloads, installations).

Unwanted, suspicious extensions, add-ons, or plug-ins installed on a browser should be removed. Programs of this kind that installed on the operating system should be uninstalled too. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
