Nowadays, almost every site relies on web advertisements to get some income. It is easy to get irritated by some of them because the web administrators sometimes overuse the commercial materials. If you decide to block them, you should know the application named AdBlockerr cannot help you at all. Quite ironically, it works as adware. It indeed prevents the web-based ads from loading, but there is a little catch. In their place, AdBlockerr places its own pop-ups and banners, which lead to particularly chosen third-party websites.

The newly generated ads tend to be far more aggressive than what you are used to seeing. AdBlockerr attaches its coupons and discounts on the majority of sites you open, which may get extremely annoying in no time. What is more, it doesn't matter at all if you use Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer. This adware hooks towards all of them as an add-on, so you will notice the same modifications regardless of which web client you launch. You should not be too surprised if the browsers start working slower than usual after the installation of AdBlockerr.

This adware burdens the PC because it uses some of the resources for its own processes. The security experts highlight that the new banners, animations and videos may be unsafe. It all depends on where they will take you – if the sponsored sites host dangerous content, you may get infected. Some of the clients of AdBlockerr haven't downloaded it intentionally. This tool is often a part of a software bundle, so you may load it unwillingly if you skip the details. As with any adware, the advice of the specialists is to remove it with a professional security application.
