When browsing the Internet, computer users that use the Windows Operating system may start experiencing numerous pop-up advertisements displayed by a website named Pushnow.net. They need to know that this is happening because they visited a compromised website, clicked on a corrupted advertisement or downloaded and iinstalled a freeware that had Pushnow.net  included with its installation.

However, to display its pop-up advertisements, Pushnow.net needs to convince computer users to click an 'Allow' button, which will give the misleading website the necessary permission to display its push notifications that end up being the advertisements it was created to display.

Affected computer users do not need to be worried if they have Pushnow.net  installed on their machines because it does not cause any harm unless they click on the advertisements.
