What is typiccor[.]com?
Sharing many common traits with tik-ttok.net, financesurvey365.org, profi-para.com, subordingry.website, and countless others, typiccor[.]com is a rogue site. It is designed to load dubious content and/or redirect visitors to various websites (likely unreliable or malicious ones).
Users rarely intentionally access such pages; most get redirected to them by suspect sites, intrusive ads, or installed PUAs (Potentially Unwanted Applications). This software can infiltrate systems without user permission and subsequently cause redirects, run intrusive advert campaigns, and collect browsing data.
Typiccor[.]com in detail
The behavior of rogue webpages is determined by their visitors' geolocations, which they learn from the users' IP (Internet Protocol) addresses. This applies to typiccor[.]com as well; hence, whether visitors to this page are presented with questionable material and/or get redirected elsewhere - depends on their geolocations/ IP addresses.
Additionally, most sites of this type employ deceptive tactics to lure users into enabling their browser notifications. Typiccor[.]com is not an exception; it uses fake CAPTCHA verification for this purpose. Should the notifications be allowed, typiccor[.]com will start delivering intrusive advertisement campaigns.
The displayed advertisements are misleading, untrustworthy, and may even be dangerous. Intrusive ads promote various unreliable and malicious websites. Furthermore, some of these adverts can be triggered (by being clicked on) to stealthily download/install software (e.g., PUAs).
How do potentially unwanted applications operate?
PUAs can have a variety of heinous functionalities, and these functions can be in different combinations. For example, these applications can force-open websites and/or deliver intrusive advertisement campaigns. What is more, these apps usually have data tracking abilities.
Information of interest includes: URLs visited, webpages viewed, search queries typed, IP addresses/ geolocations, personally identifiable details, and so forth. The gathered data is then monetized by being shared with and/or sold to third-parties (potentially, cyber criminals), likewise intent on misusing it for profit.
To summarize, the presence of unwanted software on devices can result in system infections, severe privacy issues, financial losses, and even lead to identity theft. Therefore, it is strongly advised to remove all suspect applications and browser extensions/plug-ins immediately upon detection.

Potentially unwanted applications in general
PUAs typically appear ordinary and innocuous. Users are lured into download/installation with promises of "useful" functionalities. However, the features are seldom operational. The only aim of unwanted apps is to generate revenue for the developers. PUAs are designed to cause redirects, run intrusive ad campaigns, and collect private data.
How did adware install on my computer?
PUAs are distributed via downloaders/installers and other programs. This false marketing technique of packing regular software with unwanted or malicious additions - is called "bundling". Rushed download/installation processes (e.g., ignored terms, used pre-set options, etc.) increase the risk of allowing bundled content into the system.
Intrusive adverts are also used to proliferate PUAs. Once clicked on, the advertisements can execute scripts to download/install these applications without user consent. PUAs may have "official" promotional/download webpages as well.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
It is recommended to research software before download/installation. Only official and verified download channels must be used. Untrustworthy sources, e.g., unofficial and free file-hosting websites, Peer-to-Peer sharing networks, and other third-party downloaders - commonly offer harmful content.
When downloading/installing, it is advised to read terms, explore possible options, use the "Custom/Advanced" settings, and opt-out from additional apps, tools, features, etc. Intrusive ads appear legitimate; however, they redirect to highly questionable sites (e.g., gambling, pornography, adult-dating, and so on).
In case of encounters with adverts and/or redirects of this kind, the system must be checked and all suspicious applications and browser extensions/plug-ins detected - immediately removed from it. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
