Remove 383vpbzxksw.tech Pop Up Ads

Did you just get a popup from 383vpbzxksw.tech and ponder where it came from? Did the 383vpbzxksw.tech ad appear to have been initiated from a web site that under normal circumstances don't use advertising such as pop-up windows? Or did the 383vpbzxksw.tech pop up show up while you clicked a link on one of the major search engines, such as Google, Bing or Yahoo?

The screenshot serves as an example of how a pop-up can look like when it appears in a new tab in Firefox. The pop-up in the screenshot is not from 383vpbzxksw.tech.

Does this sound like what you see your machine, you most likely have some adware installed on your machine that pops up the 383vpbzxksw.tech ads. Contacting the site owner would be a waste of time. The advertisements are not coming from them.

I'll do my best to help you with the 383vpbzxksw.tech removal in this blog post.

I found the 383vpbzxksw.tech pop-up on one of the lab machines where I have some adware running. I've talked about this in some of the previous blog posts. The adware was installed on purpose, and from time to time I check if anything new has appeared, such as pop-up windows, new tabs in the browsers, injected ads on site that usually don't show ads, or if some new files have been saved to the hard-drive.

So, how do you remove the 383vpbzxksw.tech pop-up ads? On the machine where I got the 383vpbzxksw.tech ads I had adware installed. I removed those adware programs with FreeFixer and that stopped the 383vpbzxksw.tech pop-ups and all the other ads I was getting in Firefox.

The bad news with popups like this one is that it can be initiated by many variants of adware, not just the adware that's installed on my system. This makes it impossible to say exactly what you need to remove to stop the pop-ups.

So, what can be done? To remove the 383vpbzxksw.tech pop-up ads you need to check your machine for adware or other types of unwanted software and uninstall it. Here's my suggested removal procedure:

  1. Examine what programs you have installed in the Add/Remove programs dialog in the Windows Control Panel. Do you see something that you don't remember installing or that was recently installed?

  2. How about your add-ons that you have in your browser. Anything in the list that you don't remember installing?

  3. Please also try to disable the web browser proxy and the system proxy on your system. Did that stop the pop-ups?

  4. If that did not help, I'd recommend a scan with FreeFixer to manually track down the adware. FreeFixer is a freeware tool that I'm working on that scans your computer at lots of locations, such as browser add-ons, processes, Windows services, recently modified files, etc. If you want to get additional details about a file in the scan result, you can click the More Info link for that file and a web page will open up with a VirusTotal report which will be very useful to determine if the file is safe or malware:

  5. If no matter what you do seems to stop the popups, you could try to block 383vpbzxksw.tech in the Windows HOSTS file.
