The pop-up advertisements generated by Do-not-ignore-this.email are an indication of adware infiltration. Do-not-ignore-this.email sneaked into the system as a browser extension compatible with Chrome, Firefox, and Explorer. Do-not-ignore-this.email was probably downloaded alongside a free application downloaded from the Web. The extension is likely to be bundled with PDF creators, download managers or video recording applications.
Do-not-ignore-this.email Distribution Method
As already mentioned, ad-supported extensions are often distributed through bundled downloads. Such browser extensions may be treated as potentially unwanted applications because the user is unaware of their addition to the freeware package. Always opting for the advanced installation is the most secure way to avoid bundling.
Once running, Do-not-ignore-this.email may generate fake system alerts claiming that various issues have been found. The bogus extension may even suggest calling a phone number in order to solve the problems. Such phone numbers are defined as fake tech support lines and should be ignored. Not only calling will not solve any supposed issues but the user may also be charged for the so-called service.
Furthermore, the bogus add-on may also provoke the display of multiple advertisements, thus interrupting browsing habits. Clicking any of the displayed content may redirect the user to a threatening page injected with viruses or Trojans.
Considering the given information, the user should undertake actions as soon as possible. The longer Do-not-ignore-this.email is running on his computer, the more vulnerable it becomes to other types of malicious software.
To rid the affected computer of the intrusive presence, running a full system scan with the help of a valid AV solution is considered the best option. Another crucial step is restoring the browser’s settings.
