Fres-news.com is a website that attempts to trick people into allowing the generation of sponsored content in their browsers. Typically, the annoying ads generated by Fres-news.com appear as pop-ups. You can start to see them every time you open the affected browser. However, these ads can be so intrusive that they can appear even when your browser is closed.
