Remove worldofwarships.eu Pop Up Ads

Does this sound like your story? You see pop up advertisements from worldofwarships.eu while browsing at web sites that typically don't advertise in popup windows. The pop-ups manage to bypass the built-in pop-up blockers in Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer or Safari. Maybe the worldofwarships.eu pop-ups turn up when clicking search results from the Google search engine? Or does the pop ups appear even when you're not browsing?

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

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

Does this sound like what you see your computer, you almost certainly have some adware installed on your system that pops up the worldofwarships.eu ads. Contacting the owner of the website you were at would be a waste of time. They are not responsible for the adverts.

I'll do my best to help you with the worldofwarships.eu removal in this blog post.

I found the worldofwarships.eu 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 web 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 worldofwarships.eu pop-up ads? On the machine where I got the worldofwarships.eu ads I had adware installed. I removed those adware programs with FreeFixer and that stopped the worldofwarships.eu 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 initiated by many variants of adware, not just the adware running 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 worldofwarships.eu ads removal:

The first thing I would do to remove the worldofwarships.eu 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 OS 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 shady listed 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 observing the worldofwarships.eu pop-ups.

The next thing to check would be your browser's add-ons. Adware often turn up under the add-ons menu in Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer or Safari. Is there something 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 machine. Did that stop the pop-ups?

I think you will be able to find 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've developed since 2006. It's a tool designed to manually track down and uninstall unwanted software. When you've tracked down 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 locked 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 troubles determining if a file is clean or malware in the FreeFixer scan report, click on the More Info link for the file. That will open up your browser with a page which contains more details about the file. On that web page, check out the VirusTotal report which can be very useful:

If no matter what you do seems to stop the popups, you could try to block worldofwarships.eu in the Windows HOSTS file.
