Many computer users have reported that their Web browser is displaying advertisements related to the FastClickNow.com URL, or that their Web browser redirects them to FastClickNow.com and other websites associated with FastClickNow.com. Although FastClickNow.com advertisements and redirects do not indicate that your computer is infected with threats, these may indicate that a PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program) associated with FastClickNow.com is present on the affected computer. It is important to note that FastClickNow.com is a legitimate advertisement platform and that the FastClickNow.com advertising network is entirely legal. However, there are many problematic issues related to FastClickNow.com which have caught the attention of PC security researchers. For example, the FastClickNow.com advertisement platform uses tracking technology that allows marketers to keep track of your online activity and history in order to deliver advertisements to your Web browser. FastClickNow.com advertisements may appear on a variety of websites and search engines associated with FastClickNow.com.
Essentially, the FastClickNow.com URL acts as an intermediary; when computer users are exposed to certain advertisements or websites, the traffic first goes through FastClickNow.com. This website keeps track of traffic and referrals associated with FastClickNow.com advertisements. This means that FastClickNow.com advertisements actually do not come from the FastClickNow.com website itself. Rather, they are associated with FastClickNow.com in the sense that FastClickNow.com distributes and collects data associated with these types of forms of advertising.
FastClickNow.com Ads and Redirects
If FastClickNow.com advertisements are appearing on your Web browser, it is highly likely that they appear because you are visiting websites that use FastClickNow.com's advertisement network to generate advertising revenue. If you find that your Web browser is displaying these advertisements in relation to websites that are not associated with FastClickNow.com or if you are experiencing FastClickNow.com redirects, this usually indicates that adware has been installed on your computer. Adware associated with FastClickNow.com may be installed on the affected computer as a Web browser add-on. These types of adware components, usually classified as PUPs and taking the form of Web browser toolbars, may affect the most popular Windows-based Web browsers and may be installed without the computer user's permission and bundled with free software.
