What Do TankGripHook Ads Do?
Once installed on your PC, the adware will immediately start flooding your browser with advertisements. It will present both pop-up and banner ads. It may also show in-text ones. These advertisements will contain discounts, coupons, and other promotions. The items they show may even be related to your browsing as adware applications are able to track your browsing activities.
