Remove cloudservepoint.com Pop Up Ads

Did you just get interrupted by a pop-up ad from cloudservepoint.com? You are not alone. I also get the cloudservepoint.com pop-ups while browsing. Do the pop-ups also get round the pop-up blocker in Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari or Opera. Do the pop-ups appear on sites that does not advertise with popups. Then read on...

Here is a screen capture on the cloudservepoint.com pop-up from my machine:

(Sorry for the ridiculous use of watermarks. I have to do it to stop the copy-cats.)

If you also see this on your system, you almost certainly have some adware installed on your computer that pops up the cloudservepoint.com ads. So there's no use contacting the site owner. The adverts are not coming from them.

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

I found the cloudservepoint.com 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 web site that usually don't show ads, or if some new files have been saved to the hard-drive.

cloudservepoint.com was registered on 2016-03-30. cloudservepoint.com resolves to 130.211.9.122.

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

The problem with popups such as this one is that it can be initiated 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 remove the cloudservepoint.com popup ads you need to review your system for adware or other types of unwanted software and uninstall it. Here's my suggested removal procedure:

  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. You can also check the browser add-ons. Same thing here, do you see anything 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 does not 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 system at lots of locations where unwanted software is known to hook into your computer. 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. If that did not solve the problem, you can add a blocking for cloudservepoint.com in the Windows HOSTS file.
