MonsonRevenue Ads on My Browser. How Can I Remove It?

Several users have complained of advertisements showing up in Mozilla Firefox brought by MonsonRevenue. MonsonRevenue or MonsonRevenue Ads are most likely generated by an ad-supported extension for widely used browsers (Explorer, Chrome, Firefox). It has been reported that MonsonRevenue Ads have appeared both on the top and the bottom of the browser on nearly every page while browsing. It is safe to assume that the browser extension is persistent to manual removal, even though more details on it are needed to confirm.
Despite there isn’t much information about who created the application and how exactly it works, there are several troublesome features that apply to ad-generated software.

How Did MonsonRevenue Ads Reach My PC?

There are several ways, employed by ad-supported software for its circulation around the Web:
Ad-supported software is often distributed:

  • Through a method called ‘bundling’. Bundling, or product bundling, is a practice which is not unknown to the marketing world. It basically means passing several products as one combined piece. In the IT world, bundled software means software which is distributed with another PC product, be it software or hardware. Bundled software also goes for a group of software packages that are being sold together. Pre-installed software is also considered a vital part of the bundled kind.adware (2)
  • Through reaching suspicious content and being exposed to such code. Visiting mistrustful sites through corrupted hyperlinks and spam messages is one example. In some cases, PUPs and adware can reach the system when clicking on a fake update pop-up or a pop-up claiming that a prize has been won. Cyber crooks also tend to exploit the negligence of users, sending them spam emails containing corrupted links. Be extra careful while browsing and always aim at websites and software sources that have proven safe and sound.

So…

What Removal Options Do I Have?

Some adware applications can be removed manually in a quick manner. However, other applications turn out to be persistent, especially when changes to the Windows Registry have been done.

After a performed scan of other affected users with specific registry cleaner and adware removal tools, certain suspicious files and registry settings have been discovered, believed to be associated with MonsonRevenue Ads:

It is possible to remove those files manually. However, due to the uniqueness of every situation, it is preferable to use professional software that will locate and terminate them, since the files it may modify on a PC might vary every time.
If none of this works, seeking professional help in the face of a computer specialist is advisory.
