Remove 415peezndor.tech Pop Up Ads

Having problems with pop-ups from 415peezndor.tech? If so, you may have adware installed on your system, granted that the pop ups appear on web sites that does not advertise with pop ups. I got the 415peezndor.tech pop-ups in Mozilla Firefox, but they can appear if you are using Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari or Opera too.

Here's a screen-cap of the 415peezndor.tech pop-up ad when it showed up on my computer:

If you also see this on your system, you almost certainly have some adware installed on your machine that pops up the 415peezndor.tech ads. So don't blame the people that owns the website you were at, the ads are probably not coming from that website, but from the adware that's installed on your machine.

I'll do my best to help you remove the 415peezndor.tech pop-up in this blog post.

I found the 415peezndor.tech pop-up on one of the lab computers 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 site that usually don't show advertisements, or if some new files have been saved to the hard-drive.

So, how do you remove the 415peezndor.tech pop-up ads? On the machine where I got the 415peezndor.tech ads I had adware installed. I removed those adware programs with FreeFixer and that stopped the 415peezndor.tech pop-ups and all the other ads I was getting in Firefox.

The problem with pop ups like the one described in this blog post is that it can be launched by many variants of adware, not just the adware on my computer. This makes it impossible to say exactly what you need to remove to stop the pop-ups.

So, what can be done to solve the problem? To remove the 415peezndor.tech popup ads you need to examine your computer for adware or other types of unwanted software and uninstall it. Here's my suggested removal procedure:

The first thing I would do to remove the 415peezndor.tech pop-ups is to examine the software installed on the machine, by opening the "Uninstall programs" dialog. You can open this dialog from the Windows Control Panel. If you are using one of the more recent versions of Windows Operating System you can just type in "uninstall" in the Control Panel's search field to find that dialog:

Uninstall a program search

Click on the "Uninstall a program" link and the Uninstall programs dialog will open up:

Do you see something dubious in there or something that you don't remember installing? Tip: Sort on the "Installed On" column to see if some program was installed about the same time as you started getting the 415peezndor.tech pop-ups.

Then I would check the browser add-ons. Adware often show up under the add-ons menu in Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer or Safari. Is there anything that looks suspicious? Something that you don't remember installing?

Firefox add-ons manager

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

I think most users will be able to identify and remove the adware with the steps outlined above, but in case that did not work you can try the FreeFixer removal tool to identify and remove the adware. FreeFixer is a freeware tool that I started develop about 8 years ago. Freefixer is a tool designed to manually identify and uninstall unwanted software. When you've identified the unwanted files you can simply tick a checkbox and click on the Fix button to remove the unwanted file.

FreeFixer's removal feature is not crippled like many other removal tools out there. It won't require you to pay a fee just when you are about to remove the unwanted files.

And if you're having problems determining if a file is legit or adware in FreeFixer's scan result, click on the More Info link for the file. That will open up your browser with a page which contains additional details about the file. On that web page, check out the VirusTotal report which can be very useful:

As a last resort, if the above steps did not solve the pop-ups problem, you can block 415peezndor.tech in the Windows HOSTS file.

Here you can see FreeFixer in action removing pop-up ads:
