Potentially unwanted applications in general

Websites like antirobotsystem[.]com are designed to trick visitors into agreeing to receive notifications and open other shady sites. They get opened through dubious advertisements, other pages of this kind, or potentially unwanted applications (PUAs). More examples of pages similar to antirobotsystem[.]com are wholecoolposts[.]com, phonenow[.]net, wholenicenews[.]com.

How did adware install on my computer?

One of the most popular distribution methods for PUAs is to bundle them with other programs. Downloaders or installers for those programs have "Custom", "Advanced", or other settings. When users do not change those settings before downloading or installing programs, they end up having PUAs downloaded or installed as well.

In other cases, PUAs are distributed through fake installers (usually, such installers are promoted on deceptive pages), or advertisements. In the second case, users download or install PUAs by clicking on ads designed to run certain scripts.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

Applications (and files) should not be downloaded using sources like Peer-to-Peer networks, unofficial websites, third-party downloaders. They should be downloaded only from official pages and via direct links. Downloads and installations should not be finished without checking downloaders or installers for unwanted apps.

It is also recommended not to click on advertisements appearing on shady 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.

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.
