If allowed, totaltopfeed[.]com shows notifications containing links to potentially malicious websites, dubious advertisements, and so on. Therefore, it is not recommended to allow totaltopfeed[.]com to show notifications.

At the time of the research, totaltopfeed[.]com opened the World of Tanks game website. It is likely that individuals behind totaltopfeed[.]com get paid a referral fee when users create accounts, purchase products, services on pages opened through it.

More about potentially unwanted applications

Applications of this kind generate advertisements (for example, coupons, banners, surveys, etc.) designed to open untrustworthy websites. Sometimes, they display advertisements capable of executing scripts designed to cause unwanted downloads or even installations. Another issue with PUAs is that they gather various data.

They collect Internet Protocol addresses, visited websites, entered search queries, geolocations, and other information related to browsing activities. In some cases, PUAs gather personal details that could be misused to steal online accounts, commit identity fraud, make fraudulent purchases, and so on.

Pages like totaltopfeed[.]com in general

In conclusion, totaltopfeed[.]com is an untrustworthy website designed to open other websites of this kind and to trick visitors into allowing it to show notifications. It is similar to uniqdatacaptcha[.]top, nakedstreaming[.]com, funsmartlook[.]com, and a great number of other websites. Typically, users open them unintentionally.

How did adware install on my computer?

Pretty often, users download and install potentially unwanted applications together with free programs that have those apps integrated in their downloaders and installers as extra offers. This distribution method is called bundling. Users agree to download or install PUAs when they leave "Manual", "Custom", "Advanced" or other settings unchanged.

In other cases, users download or install PUAs by clicking advertisements designed to run certain scripts or through fake installers. It is important to mention that fake installers can be designed to install malicious programs. Users download those installers from deceptive websites.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

It is recommended to download software from official and trustworthy sources and not from unofficial websites, Peer-to-Peer networks (torrent clients, eMule, and other networks), third-party downloaders, etc. Third-party installers should not be used to install any software as well.

Furthermore, it is advisable to check downloaders and installers for optional offers. Typically, those offers can be found (and deselected) in "Custom", "Advanced", "Manual", and other options. Bundled applications should be deselected before finishing downloads and installations.

Additionally, it is recommended not to trust ads displayed on shady websites. Those ads could open potentially malicious pages or cause unexpected downloads, installations. Unwanted or suspicious apps installed on a browser and 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.
