Pages like ourhypewords[.]com in general

Users do not visit websites like ourhypewords[.]com intentionally. Once visited, most of them ask for permission to show notifications. Usually, they use a clickbait technique to trick visitors into clicking the "Allow" button. For example, they load a fake CAPTCHA.

How did adware install on my computer?

Users often download or install PUAs with other programs (through downloaders or installers for other programs). Optional downloads or installations can be deselected in "Custom", "Manual", "Advanced", or other settings that certain downloaders or installers have. Users agree to download or install PUAs by leaving those settings unchanged.

Also, users install PUAs through fake installers (for example, a fake Adobe Flash Player installer) or by clicking advertisements designed to execute specific scripts.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

Files and programs should be downloaded from official websites and using direct download links. Other sources (for example, unofficial pages, third-party downloaders) should be avoided. Ads that untrustworthy websites display should not be trusted - they can open other dubious pages or trigger unwanted downloads, installations.

Downloaders and installers with "Advanced", "Custom", "Manual" or other settings should be checked for optional downloads and installations. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.

How to avoid browser notification spam?

Internet users should be very skeptical when being asked to allow notifications. While this is a useful feature that allows you to receive timely news from websites you like, deceptive marketers frequently abuse it.

Only allow notifications from websites that you fully trust. For added security - use an anti-malware application with a real-time web browsing monitor to block shady websites that tries to trick you into allowing spam notifications. We recommend using Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows.
