Onlinesurveysnow.win is a lying, deceitful page. If you see it all the time on your screen, you are in trouble. The site claims that if you take a couple of minutes of your time to fill out a survey, you will win a prize. Supposedly, you can a smartphone, a laptop, or even monetary payment in Bitcoin. This sounds good, doesn’t it? If only it was true, which it isn’t. It is all a lie. Do not believe what this site tells you even for a second.
Do not fall into the trap. You will not win any price. You won`t get anything out of filling out a survey. Onlinesurveysnow.win is lying to you. This page is a harbinger of bad news. In fact, it is a clear indication that there is a cyber infection somewhere on your PC. An adware parasite. As you may know, adware pieces are infections.

For example, the Onlinesurveysnow.win site becomes your online shadow. There is no getting rid of it. It is always there to greet you when you are online, when you open a new tab, etc. You also get redirected to it and other shady pages non-stop. But there is more. The adware also buries you with tons of annoying, unverified commercials which cover your entire screen. The hackers use them and you to gain pay-per-click mechanism. If you click, they get paid. Simple as that. But also, if you click, you may install more unwanted malware on your system.
As we said, the ads are not verified. Most of them are corrupted and they either lead to pages full of infection or they conceal infections themselves. Either way, you worsen your situation by letting more parasites enters your already infected computer. Do your best to avoid the ads. We are aware that this is almost impossible as the commercials are countless and everywhere, but restrain yourself until you remove the adware completely. Only when you delete it, will the adverts go away. Until then, do not click on anything unless you want to worsen your predicament. Your computer is underperforming as it is.

How did the adware enter? The Onlinesurveysnow.win appeared because the adware forced it on you but how did the infection itself get in? One of the most commonly used infiltration techniques is called freeware bundling. Be extra careful when you install programs which you download off of the web. Pay attention to what you are agreeing with. Don’t skip the Terms and Conditions/EULA as they may hide some misleading clauses which you are totally against. Also, opt for the Advanced settings instead of the Basic ones as they allow you to see if there are any additionally attached apps which are about to enter your machine. If there are, deselect them all. Usually, they are malicious. Protect your PC. A little extra attention goes a long way.
