Sharetechsupport.net is an adware-related domain that promotes annoying pop-ups while users browse the Web. Customarily, a pop-up from Sharetechsupport.net might be caused by the installation of a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) or an adware infection. Either way, the excessive amount of pop-ups is going to make your computer decrease performance levels and might trick you into attracting more infections. Computer security experts advise users to ignore the pop-ups from Sharetechsupport.net as they promote bogus technical support services. Contacting the 'live technicians' as suggested by Sharetechsupport.net pop-ups would not remove them; you may complicate the situation even more. Instead of contacting the bogus tech support offered by Sharetechsupport.net pop-ups, it is recommended to run a full system scan with a trusted anti-spyware tool.
