Did you just get interrupted by a pop up ad from 394aavndd.tech? You are not alone. I also get the 394aavndd.tech popups while browsing. Do the pop-ups also circumvent 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 pop-ups. Then read on...
Here's a screen capture of the 394aavndd.tech pop-up ad when it showed up on my machine:
(Sorry for the ridiculous use of watermarks. I have to do it to stop the copy-cats.)
Does this sound like your experience, you most likely have some adware installed on your computer that pops up the 394aavndd.tech ads. So don't send angry emails to the site you were browsing, the adverts are probably not coming from them, but from the adware on your system.
I'll do my best to help you remove the 394aavndd.tech pop up in this blog post.
I found the 394aavndd.tech pop-up on one of the lab systems 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 popup windows, new tabs in the browsers, injected ads on web site that usually don't show adverts, or if some new files have been saved to the hard-drive.
So, how do you remove the 394aavndd.tech pop-up ads? On the machine where I got the 394aavndd.tech ads I had adware installed. I removed those adware programs with FreeFixer and that stopped the 394aavndd.tech pop-ups and all the other ads I was getting in Mozilla 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 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 394aavndd.tech pop up ads you need to examine your machine 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 394aavndd.tech pop-ups is to examine the software installed on the machine, by opening the "Uninstall programs" dialog. You can find 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:
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 something was installed about the same time as you started getting the 394aavndd.tech pop-ups.
Then I would check the browser add-ons. Adware often show up under the add-ons dialog in Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer or Safari. Is there anything that looks suspicious? Anything that you don't remember installing?
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 started develop about 8 years ago. It's a tool built to manually identify 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 will not require you to pay for the program just when you are about to remove the unwanted files.
And if you're having issues figuring out if a file is legit or malware in FreeFixer's scan result, click on the More Info link for the file. That will open up your web browser with a page which contains additional information about the file. On that web page, check out the VirusTotal report which can be quite useful:
As a last resort, if the above steps did not solve the popups problem, you can block 394aavndd.tech in the Windows HOSTS file.
