Remove bb-ac-router-100.com Pop Up Ads

Having issues with pop ups from bb-ac-router-100.com? If that is the case, you might have adware installed on your computer, granted that the pop ups appear on web sites that does not advertise with pop ups. I got the bb-ac-router-100.com pop ups in Mozilla Firefox, but they can appear if you are using Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari or Opera too.

Here is a screen-cap on the bb-ac-router-100.com pop-up from my system:

Does this sound like your experience, you probably have some adware installed on your system that pops up the bb-ac-router-100.com ads. Contacting the owner of the web site you were at would be a waste of time. They are not responsible for the adverts.

I'll do my best to help you remove the bb-ac-router-100.com pop up in this blog post.

I found the bb-ac-router-100.com 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 anything new has appeared, such as pop up windows, new tabs in the browsers, injected ads on website that usually don't show ads, or if some new files have been saved to the hard-drive.

bb-ac-router-100.com was registered on 2016-05-02. bb-ac-router-100.com resolves to 178.175.130.163.

So, how do you remove the bb-ac-router-100.com pop-up ads? On the machine where I got the bb-ac-router-100.com ads I had adware installed. I removed those adware programs with FreeFixer and that stopped the bb-ac-router-100.com pop-ups and all the other ads I was getting in Firefox.

The issue with this type of pop-up is that it can be launched by many variants of adware, not just the adware that's installed on my machine. 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 bb-ac-router-100.com popup ads you need to check your computer 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 you have in your browsers. 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 didn't help, you can give FreeFixer a try. FreeFixer is built to assist users when manually tracking down adware and other types of unwanted software. It is a freeware utility that I've been working since 2006 and it scans your computer at lots of locations where unwanted software is known to hook into your machine. If you would like to get additional details about a file in FreeFixer's scan result, you can just click the More Info link for that file and a web page with a VirusTotal report will open up, which can be very useful to determine if the file is safe or malware:

  5. As a last resort, if the above steps did not solve the popups problem, you can block bb-ac-router-100.com in the Windows HOSTS file.
