What kind of website is videomart[.]org?
Videomart[.]org uses a clickbait technique to get permission to show notifications and opens potentially malicious pages. It shares the same qualities with behaviorname[.]online, atwithdifferuken[.]xyz, checker-online[.]com, and plenty of other pages.
Videomart[.]org page in detail
Videomart[.]org displays a fake CAPTCHA to trick visitors into clicking the "Allow" button (into agreeing to receive notifications from this page). If allowed, videomart[.]org delivers notifications promoting scams similar to "Norton Antivirus 2021 Update", download pages for potentially unwanted applications (PUAs), and so on.
Videomart[.]org itself can redirect visitors to untrustworthy pages too. Those pages could be used to extract personal information, promote questionable software, or for other malicious purposes. In conclusion, videomart[.]org is an untrustworthy page that can open other pages of this kind and show deceptive notifications.

Websites of this type in general
Users do not open websites like videomart[.]org on purpose. These pages get opened through other untrustworthy sites, advertisements, or potentially unwanted apps. It is worth mentioning that a big part of PUAs get downloaded and installed accidentally.
How did adware install on my computer?
PUAs are distributed through downloaders and installers for other programs, advertisements, fake installers. Those downloaders and installers have "Advanced", "Custom", "Manual" or similar options. When users leave those settings unchanged, they cause unwanted downloads or installations.
Fake installers used to distribute PUAs are promoted on deceptive websites (on pages designed to trick visitors into downloading unwanted apps). Advertisements can download or install PUAs by running certain scripts.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
It is recommended to use official websites and direct links to download files and programs and avoid using other channels. It is also advisable to check downloaders and installers for unwanted offers and avoid clicking on advertisements that shady web pages display/have on them.
If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
