This morning we noticed another strange adware program in our computer. The name of it is Ads by Tom. The good thing is that this adware was tested on a virtual computer, i.e. not a real system. Things may be quite opposite if you suddenly install this annoying program into your real system. Yet, even in this case we will help you to remove Ads by Tom from your workstation.
As we’ve said already, Ads by Tom will be popping up in your browser, no matter which one you have set as a default one. Furthermore, if you have several browsers in your system simultaneously, you will see these Ads by Tom popping up in all of them.
How can a person avoid Ads by Tom from coming into the system in the first place? The truth is that you need to be very careful when you download and install any free programs into your system. When you see any good free program, there is still a danger that it may be bundled by default with all kinds of extras. So, please carefully read its End User License Agreement. Don’t allow any hidden installations to take place on your computer without your knowledge or approval. This is why you should carefully read what these EULAs mention regarding third-party software offered for you to be brought into your system by default. Always choose the option of a custom installation, instead of the standard one. If you see any unwanted programs – remove them (through unchecking their default installation options). And if no such option is given – just cancel the entire installation.
Ads by Tom pop up quite often, no matter which websites you actually visit. Often this adware will convert random words from a particular website into links, and when moving the computer mouse towards them you will see these Ads by Tom popping up. To fix this problem we recommend you to scan your system with a reliable anti-malware tool. Please follow the uninstall instructions as stipulated below.
