What Are TankGripHook Ads?

p4_0000TankGripHook Ads appear only if you have a certain adware program on your computer. These will be presented whenever you browse the web, and it will not matter whether you are using Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, or Google Chrome. It is highly discouraged that users keep this program on their computer. It is classified as adware after all. Such programs are known for their unreliability. They can be easily exploited by malicious parties. This may have dire consequences for your system’s security. If you see TankGripHook Ads on your browser, you must take immediate measures to remove the adware.

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. This only makes the ads more appealing and it increases the chances that you will click on them. This is something that we strongly advise against. Ads that are produced by adware programs are not to be trusted.

Why Are TankGripHook Ads Dangerous?

The ads themselves are not the threat, neither is the adware. However, the websites that the ads promote may be dangerous. It is possible for some of them to be managed by cyber criminals. Adware programs are often taken advantage of in order for them to promote malicious websites. This means that by clicking on the ads, you may expose your system to virtual threats. You may become the victim of a phishing scheme or some infection may infiltrate your system as a direct result of landing on some malicious website. This is why TankGripHook Ads should be avoided and removed.

Where Did TankGripHook Ads Come from?

The most common way for adware programs to distribute is through bundled downloads. This allows them to enter system unnoticed. If you download any free programs from third-party websites, it is very likely that there will be additional applications featured in the installers. What is more, they will be set for installation by default. This means that you have to decline them yourself. You can do this by selecting Advanced/Custom installation.

How Does One Remove TankGripHook Ads?

Getting rid of the adware is relevantly easy. You have to open Control Panel, go to the list of applications on the PC, find TankGripHook, and then uninstall it. Keep in mind that it can be featured as TaaNNkGRRiIpHooKK, tTaenkKGGaripHhoOKKa, or something of the sort. Just removing TankGripHook Ads from your computer will not be enough to make sure that it is safe. It is possible for more adware programs to be on your computer.
