Remove 413ogcobhrv.tech Pop Up Ads

Did you just get a popup from 413ogcobhrv.tech and ask yourself where it came from? Did the 413ogcobhrv.tech ad appear to have been initiated from a web site that under normal circumstances don't use advertising such as popup windows? Or did the 413ogcobhrv.tech pop-up show up while you clicked a link on one of the big search engines, such as Google, Bing or Yahoo?

Here's how the 413ogcobhrv.tech pop-up looked like when I got it on my computer:

Does this sound like what you see your computer, you presumably have some adware installed on your system that pops up the 413ogcobhrv.tech ads. Contacting the owner of the web site you were at would be a waste of time. They are not responsible for the ads.

I'll do my best to help you with the 413ogcobhrv.tech removal in this blog post.

I found the 413ogcobhrv.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 something new has appeared, such as pop-up windows, new tabs in the browsers, injected ads on website that usually don't show adverts, or if some new files have been saved to the hard-drive.

So, how do you remove the 413ogcobhrv.tech pop-up ads? On the machine where I got the 413ogcobhrv.tech ads I had adware installed. I removed those adware programs with FreeFixer and that stopped the 413ogcobhrv.tech pop-ups and all the other ads I was getting in Mozilla Firefox.

The issue with pop ups like the one described in this blog post 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.

Anyway, here's my suggestion for the 413ogcobhrv.tech ads removal:

  1. What software do you have installed if you look in the Add/Remove programs dialog in the Windows Control Panel? Something that you don't remember installing yourself 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 computer. Did that stop the popups?

  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. As a last resort you can block 413ogcobhrv.tech in the Windows HOSTS file.
