The appearance of the Relosoun.com website brings along with itself some very bad news. If you see this page, it means that your computer has been infiltrated by a nasty adware parasite. Once it gets access to your computer, this malicious software will do anything to turn your browsers into ad-displaying tools. To ensure that the generated content will be as attractive to the user as possible, the cyber pest will monitor its victim’s online activity and collect any browsing data and relevant search results.

Thanks to this information, the adware will be able to customize the adverts, so they are more likely to get clicked on. The main objective of this parasite is to create revenue via the pay-per-click scheme. Of course, to raise its chances of success, even more, the number of ads will grow with each day. This will cause various troubles for the user. Adware’s activity is very damaging to the browser, so the sooner you get rid of this annoying adware, the better!

Adware is commonly found behind spam emails, fake update messages, email attachments, freeware, torrent files, as well as dubious ads. You should know that this parasite did not find its way on your computer on its own. It cannot hack your PC. In order to invade, it needs your permission. But how did that happen? Well, we’re not saying you knowingly gave permission to a dangerous adware to access your computer.

Typically, what happens is, that users are too negligent and opt for a Quick install when dealing with software installation, just to save time. It is a big mistake. You see, in your haste, you’ll be unable to notice if there are any additional software in the bundle you’ve downloaded and any bonus programs and apps that are hidden from you will get automatically installed. That’s how malicious software often sneaks up on its victims. To ensure this does not happen, you need to choose Custom or Advanced mode in the Setup Wizard. By doing so, you can easily spot any optional installations and choose to deselect them, so they don’t get installed on your computer.

Adware has the potential of completely damaging any browser you have on your PC – Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera, Edge, Explorer – no web browser is immune to its attack. On the bright side, you should know that adware limits its attack to web providers only. It will not infect your entire computer system, don’t worry. It does not act like a Trojan Horse. However, don’t go overestimating the power of this adware.

By prolonging its stay on your cyber machine, you’ll find that your internet speed has decreased, your browser is constantly crashing, as well as lagging. Sooner of later, due to the large amount of intrusive ads, the application will stop responding altogether, making it impossible to use it. And that’s not all. Adware puts your personal and financial information at risk. Such valuable data can easily fall into the hands of hackers, who seek to share this information with other third-parties for profit. If you want to avoid the trouble that comes with the Relosoun.com adware, you need to remove that parasite from your PC as soon as possible!
