Ads.adk2.com falls to the category of the so-called PUP (potentially unwanted programs). As soon as the malicious application enters your PC, it starts flooding your browser with commercial advertisements which appear to be not only useless but also rather disturbing for your browsing sessions.
The application wreaks all kinds of havoc and refuses to leave unless forcibly kicked out. Thus, if you find out that Ads.adk2.com is present on your computer, the best thing you could do is to remove the program as soon as possible and protect your system against other malicious applications in future.
Ads.adk2.com uses various methods of distribution. The most common of these is when the program succeeds to trick you into approving its installation on the PC. The truth is that Ads.adk2.com actually requires your permission before it gets installed on the system, but most users do not usually realize it.
Applications like Ads.adk2.com, infiltrate your PC through deceit and finesse and trick you into letting them in without you even noticing them. For instance, the PUP often hides behind freeware, spam email attachments, corrupted links, or corrupted websites. It can also pose as a bogus system or program update, which can easily get installed on your machine.
Actually, in this case, the program will not only manage to get you to agree to install it, but you won’t even understand it has infected your system until the adverts start popping up. For that reason, you should be much more careful when you setup new software on your PC and read through all the information provided by the installation wizard of the new program.

These ads will not stop appearing unless you remove the program altogether. That’s exactly what experts advise you to do as soon as possible. In case you leave Ads.adk2.com on your computer, you will experience some bad consequences. The unwanted application will slow down your computer’s performance to a crawl, cause frequent system crashes, and threaten your personal security.
