Fdrama[.]net website in general
Fdrama[.]net is not a trustworthy website that can open other pages of this kind. Ads displayed on this page (or pages opened through it) could lead to computer infections/unwanted installations. A couple of examples of other similar pages are dramacool[.]ac, gospeljingle[.]com, yifymovies[.]pro.
How did adware install on my computer?
Advertisements on pages like fdrama[.]net can download or install PUAs by running certain scripts. Although, they can do it only when users click on them. In other cases, PUAs are distributed through downloaders and installers for other programs, fake installers promoted on deceptive pages.
Users download or install PUAs together with other programs when they do not deselect optional downloads or installations before downloading or installing those programs. PUAs can be deselected using "Advanced", "Custom", or other settings that downloaders or installers used to distribute PUAs have.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Avoid using unofficial pages, P2P networks, free file hosting pages, third-party downloaders as sources for downloading files and programs. Use only official websites for that. Also, do not download or install programs without deselecting unwanted applications and do not click on advertisements that appear on questionable websites.
If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
