More details about pages of this type

The three most popular ways to promote websites like tropi[.]fun are other shady websites, advertisements, and potentially unwanted applications (PUAs). Either way, users do not intentionally open pages of this type (or download and install most PUAs).

How did adware install on my computer?

It is very common for PUAs to be distributed through downloaders and installers for other programs. Users download or install PUAs when they do not deselect optional downloads or installations using "Advanced", "Custom", "Manual", or other similar settings available in certain downloaders or installers.

In other cases, users cause unwanted installations through fake installers downloaded from deceptive pages or by clicking advertisements designed to execute certain scripts.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

Download applications (and files) from legitimate, official websites. Files downloaded using other sources can be used to distribute questionable, potentially malicious apps/files. Also, do not click on advertisements that appear on dubious pages, or download and install programs without deselecting undesired optional downloads or installations.

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.
