What is the aclientirethe[.]xyz website?
Aclientirethe[.]xyz is a rogue webpage, similar to captchafilter.top, onestoreblog.com, watch-this-viral.video, and thousands of others. It operates by presenting visitors with dubious content, pushing its browser notifications, and/or redirecting users to various (likely untrustworthy and malicious) websites.
Rogue sites are usually accessed via redirects caused by suspect pages, intrusive adverts, or installed PUAs (Potentially Unwanted Applications).
Aclientirethe[.]xyz in detail
The behavior of rogue webpages is determined by their visitors' IP addresses/ geolocations. In other words, whether visitors to aclientirethe[.]xyz are presented with questionable material and/or redirected elsewhere - depends on this data.
Furthermore, most sites of this kind use deceptive content (e.g., clickbait, etc.) to trick users into enabling their browser notifications. Aclientirethe[.]xyz is not an exception; should its notifications be allowed - the website will start running intrusive advert campaigns.
The delivered ads pose a threat to device and user safety. Intrusive advertisements promote sale-based, rogue, deceptive/scam, and even malicious sites. When clicked on, some of these adverts can download/install software (e.g., PUAs) without user permission.

Potentially unwanted application overview
PUAs appear legitimate and offer various "useful" features, which are rarely operational. The sole purpose of unwanted apps is to generate revenue for the developers. PUAs are designed to cause redirects, deliver intrusive ad campaigns, hijack browsers, and gather private data.
To summarize, the presence of this software on devices can lead to system infections, severe privacy issues, financial losses, and identity theft.
How did adware install on my computer?
PUAs are distributed using the "bundling" marketing tactic - packing regular software with unwanted/malicious supplements. Rushed download/installation processes increase the risk of allowing bundled content into the device. Intrusive advertisements proliferate PUAs as well. Upon being clicked, the ads can execute scripts to make stealthy downloads/installations. PUAs may also have "official" download pages.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
It is advised to research software and always download from official/verified channels. Untrustworthy sources, e.g., unofficial and freeware sites, Peer-to-Peer sharing networks, and other third-party downloaders - often offer bundled and harmful content.
When downloading/installing, it is important to read terms, study available options, use the "Custom/Advanced" settings, and opt-out from all additions. Intrusive advertisements appear ordinary and innocuous, yet they redirect to dubious websites (e.g., gambling, pornography, adult-dating, etc.).
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.
