AdBlocknWatch is a PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program) that has been associated with irritating in-text advertisements that are added to content viewed on the affected Web browser. AdBlocknWatch may affect most widely used Web browsers on Windows, including Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome. AdBlocknWatch may be installed automatically by bundling AdBlocknWatch with low quality freeware downloaded from suspicious or poorly regulated sources.
AdBlocknWatch represents a threat to your computer's security. This occurs because AdBlocknWatch may track your online activity. Many of AdBlocknWatch's advertisements may expose your Web browser to other PUPs or even more unsafe types of components, such as BitCoin miners or other types of threats. Because of this, AdBlocknWatch should be removed immediately and any offers to install AdBlocknWatch on your computer should be ignored.
AdBlocknWatch is a Very Annoying PUP
The main purpose of AdBlocknWatch is to display advertisements on affected Web browsers. These advertisements interrupt computer users' activities and promote several low quality websites and online services. PC security researchers strongly advise against clicking on AdBlocknWatch advertisements. This may cause your Web browser to visit certain websites with potentially unsafe content. Another motive why computer users should avoid clicking on AdBlocknWatch advertisements or links is that this generates revenue for AdBlocknWatch's creators, which encourages them to create and distribute other PUPs.
To remove AdBlocknWatch, PC security researchers advise the use of a reliable security application that is fully updated. AdBlocknWatch should also be uninstalled completely as well as any other software that may have been installed along with AdBlocknWatch. In most cases, AdBlocknWatch is installed by bundling AdBlocknWatch with freeware. In general, the option to opt out of installing AdBlocknWatch is usually present, although many computer users may overlook it. Taking extra care when installing new software is usually an effective way of avoiding PUPs like AdBlocknWatch from being installed on your computer. Using custom installation usually allows you to view exactly what components are being installed.
