What is Easy Tuning Videos?

Easy Tuning Videos adware overview

Adware may require specific conditions to run intrusive advertisement campaigns (e.g., compatible browser/system or user geolocation, visits to particular websites, etc.). However, regardless of whether Easy Tuning Videos displays ads - its presence on a system endangers device/user safety.

Advertising-supported software delivers advertisements that endorse online scams, unreliable/harmful sites and software, and even malware. Additionally, when clicked on, some intrusive adverts can execute scripts to perform downloads/installations without user consent.

It is noteworthy that any legitimate products encountered via these advertisements are highly unlikely to be promoted by their actual developers. Instead, this endorsement is done by scammers abusing the products' affiliate programs to obtain illegitimate commissions.

Furthermore, Easy Tuning Videos spies on users' browsing activity. Adware typically targets browsing and search engine histories, usernames/passwords, personally identifiable details, financial/banking information, etc. The gathered data can then be shared with and/or sold to third-parties.

To summarize, the presence of advertising-supported software like Easy Tuning Videos on devices can result in system infections, serious privacy issues, financial losses, and even identity theft.

Adware examples

We have analyzed countless adware samples; more stylesFilmatoryRapid Files Download, and frame order are merely some examples. This software usually looks legitimate and promises "handy" functionalities. However, these functions rarely work as advertised, and in most cases - they are utterly nonoperational.

How did Easy Tuning Videos install on my computer?

We acquired Easy Tuning Videos from its "official" download webpage. In addition to such pages, adware is promoted through online scams. Most users enter these deceptive sites through redirects caused by webpages using rogue advertising networks, spam browser notifications, mistyped URLs, intrusive ads, or installed adware (with browser force-opening abilities).

Advertising-supported software is also proliferated using the "bundling" marketing method - packing ordinary program installers with unwanted/malicious supplements. Download from untrustworthy channels (e.g., unofficial and freeware websites, Peer-to-Peer sharing networks, etc.) and rushed installations increase the risk of allowing bundled content into the system.

Intrusive advertisements are used to distribute adware as well. Once clicked on, some of these ads can make downloads/installations without user consent.

How to avoid installation of adware?

We highly recommend researching software and downloading it from official and verified channels. Installation processes must be approached with care, e.g., reading terms, studying possible options, using the "Custom/Advanced" settings, and opting-out of all additions.

Another recommendation is to exercise caution when browsing since fraudulent and malicious content usually looks legitimate. For example, intrusive adverts appear harmless yet redirect to dubious sites (e.g., gambling, adult-dating, pornography, etc.).

If you experience these advertisements and/or redirects, inspect the device and immediately remove all suspicious applications and browser extensions/plug-ins. If your computer is already infected with Easy Tuning Videos, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate this adware.
