How to remove the ads delivered by hdvideosnet.com website?

Also Known As: hdvideosnet.com pop-up
Damage level: Medium

What is hdvideosnet[.]com?

Hdvideosnet[.]com is a rogue website designed to load dubious content and/or redirect visitors to other (likely untrustworthy or malicious) pages. There are countless sites of this type online; hisqueost.xyztheresults.net, and liffsandupa.xyz are but a few examples.

Users typically access rogue webpages via redirects caused by suspect sites, intrusive ads, or installed PUAs (Potentially Unwanted Applications).

hdvideosnet[.]com pop-up redirects

Hdvideosnet[.]com in detail

The hdvideosnet[.]com website visitors' IP addresses/ geolocations dictate whether they are presented with questionable material and/or redirected elsewhere. Furthermore, most rogue pages use clickbait, fake CAPTCHA verification, or other deceptive content to trick visitors into enabling their browser notifications.

Hdvideosnet[.]com is not an exception to this; should its notifications be allowed - the site will start running intrusive advertisement campaigns. The displayed ads are more than just a minor annoyance, they also pose a threat to device/user safety. The adverts promote various unreliable and even malicious sites. Some intrusive ads can stealthily download/install software (e.g., PUAs) - when they are clicked on.

Potentially unwanted application overview

PUAs appear legitimate and offer "useful" features. However, the promised functionalities rarely work. What is more, unwanted apps usually have harmful abilities, e.g., force-opening websites, running intrusive ad campaigns, hijacking browsers, and gathering vulnerable information.

In summary, the presence of PUAs on devices can result in system infections, severe privacy issues, financial losses, and even identity theft.

How did adware install on my computer?

PUAs are distributed using the "bundling" marketing tactic - packing regular software with unwanted/malicious additions. Rushed download/installation processes (e.g., skipped steps, etc.) increase the risk of allowing bundled content into the system. Once clicked on, intrusive adverts can execute scripts to make downloads/installations without user permission. PUAs may also have "official" download sites.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

It is recommended to always research software and download from official/trustworthy sources. Dubious download channels, e.g., unofficial and freeware websites, Peer-to-Peer sharing networks, etc. - often offer bundled/harmful content.

When downloading/installing, it is advised to read terms, study possible options, use the "Custom/Advanced" settings, and opt-out from all supplements. Intrusive advertisements appear legitimate, yet they redirect to various questionable pages (e.g., pornography, adult-dating, gambling, etc.).

In case of encounters with such ads and/or redirects, the system must be checked and all suspicious applications and browser extensions/plug-ins detected - removed from it without delay. 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.
