Chromatic Adware

Chromatic removal instructions

What is Chromatic?

The Chromatic application claims to provide users with a safer Internet browsing environment. The developers distribute this application using a deceptive software marketing method called 'bundling', which allows them to install Chromium without users' consent. Bundling is stealth installation of additional applications together with regular software, and therefore, users often inadvertently install this app together with free software downloaded from freeware download websites. After system infiltration, Chromatic assigns itself as the default Internet browser. Furthermore, this application displays third party advertisements that may redirect to untrusted websites, thereby causing adware or malware infections.

   
DNS Unlocker Adware

DNS Unlocker removal instructions

What is DNS Unlocker?

The DNS Unlocker application supposedly allows users to access blocked websites, however, it is categorized as adware and a potentially unwanted program (PUP). The developers employ a deceptive software marketing method called 'bundling' to distribute DNS Unlocker, and therefore, this type of app is often bundled with free software downloadable on freeware download websites. Many users do not pay close enough attention when downloading and installing programs - cyber criminals use this oversight to their benefit and to generate revenue. DNS Unlocker infiltrates popular Internet browsers (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox) and generates intrusive online advertisements. Adware-type applications (including DNS Unlocker) deliver adverts using a virtual layer, which displays third party content on any websites visited. Furthermore, some advertisements are opened in new Internet browser tabs/windows. Ads displayed by DNS Unlocker (banner, pop-up, targeted video, coupon, offers to install other software, etc.) can cause high-risk computer infections, and therefore, you should never click unrecognised/suspicious advertisements.

After infiltration on Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox, Newer Version generates various intrusive online advertisements including search, interstitial, transitional, pop-up, banner, and full-page ads.

What is WizzWifi Hotspot?
