Pages of this type in general

Websites like mykiger[.]com usually are promoted via other dubious pages, advertisements, and PUAs. Either way, users do not visit them on purpose. Typically, PUAs are promoted/distributed using questionable (often deceptive) methods.

How did adware install on my computer?

Users download or install PUAs alongside other programs, advertisements designed to run specific scripts, fake installers. Downloaders and installers used to distribute PUAs have settings that can be used to deselect optional downloads or installations.

Users end up having PUAs downloaded or installed when they download or install programs without changing "Advanced", "Custom", or other settings. Ads that can download or install PUAs cause it when users click on them.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

Always check downloaders and installers with ticked checkboxes or settings like "Custom", "Advanced" for optional downloads or installations and deselect them. Do not use questionable sources to download programs and files - they should be downloaded from official websites and using direct links.

Also, do not click on advertisements that questionable pages 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.

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.
