What is gospeljingle[.]com?
Gospeljingle[.]com is an illegal streaming website. In addition to infringing copyright laws, this site also uses rogue advertising networks.
The Internet is rife with pages that use such networks for monetization purposes; zippyshare.com, yifymovies.pro, ytop1.com, onlymp3.net and naijawide.com are just some examples. Rogue advertising networks operate by promoting various webpages, many of which are deceptive and dangerous.
Rogue advertising networks can promote sites by force-opening them the moment the initial website (e.g., gospeljingle[.]com) is accessed. Alternatively, promotion can occur through redirects caused when content (e.g., buttons, links, advertisements, etc.) hosted on the initial page is clicked on.
The endorsed pages can be sale-based, rogue, untrustworthy, deceptive/scam, and even malicious. Furthermore, websites that use these advertising networks commonly host intrusive ads and/or attempt to trick visitors into enabling their browser notifications (allowing which would enable the site to run intrusive ad campaigns).
Adverts of this type promote likewise unreliable and harmful websites. What is more, some intrusive advertisements can download/install software stealthily - when clicked on.

Potentially unwanted application overview
Untrustworthy and questionable sites are typically accessed inadvertently. Most users enter them via redirects caused by other suspect webpages, intrusive ads, or installed PUAs (Potentially Unwanted Applications).
Unwanted software can infiltrate systems without explicit user permission. These apps appear legitimate and offer "useful" functionalities that are usually nonoperational. Instead, PUAs can force-open websites, run intrusive advert campaigns (adware), modify browsers (browser hijackers), and gather private information.
To summarize, the presence of unwanted applications on devices can lead to system infections, severe privacy issues, financial losses, and even identity theft.
How did potentially unwanted applications install on my computer?
PUAs can have "official" promotional/download sites. Intrusive advertisements proliferate these applications as well. Once clicked on, the ads can execute scripts to make downloads/installations without user permission.
PUAs are most commonly distributed using the "bundling" marketing tactic - packing regular software with unwanted/malicious supplements. Rushed downloads/installations increase the risk of allowing bundled content into the system.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
It is advised to research software and only download it from official/verified sources. Untrustworthy download channels, e.g., unofficial and free file-hosting sites, Peer-to-Peer sharing networks, etc. - often offer bundled/harmful content.
When downloading/installing, it is recommended to read terms, study possible options, use the "Custom/Advanced" settings, and opt-out from all additions. Intrusive adverts appear legitimate; however, they redirect to dubious websites (e.g., gambling, pornography, adult-dating, and so on).
In case of encounters with such advertisements and/or redirects, 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.
