Remove millionaires-blackbook.com Pop Up Ads

Did you just get a pop-up from millionaires-blackbook.com and ask yourself where it came from? Did the millionaires-blackbook.com ad appear to have been initiated from a web site that under normal circumstances don’t use advertising such as pop-up windows? Or did the millionaires-blackbook.com pop-up show up while you clicked a link on one of the big search engines, such as Google, Bing or Yahoo?

Here’s how the millionaires-blackbook.com pop-up looked like when I got it on my machine:

Does this sound like what you see your machine, you probably have some adware installed on your machine that pops up the millionaires-blackbook.com ads. So there’s no idea contacting the owner of the website you were browsing. The ads are not coming from them. I’ll try help you to remove the millionaires-blackbook.com pop ups in this blog post.

For those that are new to the blog: Some time ago I dedicated some of my lab systems and intentionally installed a few adware programs on them. Since then I’ve been observing the behaviour on these computers to see what kinds of advertisements that are displayed. I’m also looking on other interesting things such as if the adware updates itself automatically, or if it downloads additional unwanted software on the computers. I first observed the millionaires-blackbook.com pop-up on one of these lab systems.

millionaires-blackbook.com was created on 2015-11-17. The site is located at 107.154.116.14.

So, how do you remove the millionaires-blackbook.com pop-up ads? On the machine where I got the millionaires-blackbook.com ads I had SmartComp Safe Network, Windows Menager, Live Malware Protection and gosearch.me installed. I removed them with FreeFixer and that stopped the millionaires-blackbook.com pop-ups and all the other ads I was getting in Mozilla Firefox.

The issue with this type of pop-up is that it can be launched by many variants of adware. This makes it impossible to say exactly what you need to remove to stop the pop-ups.

So, what can be done to solve the problem? To remove the millionaires-blackbook.com pop-up ads you need to review your machine for adware or other types of unwanted software and uninstall it. Here’s my suggested removal procedure:

  1. Check what programs you have installed in the Add/Remove programs dialog in the Windows Control Panel. Do you see anything that you don’t remember installing or that was recently installed?
  2. How about your browser add-ons. Anything in the list that you don’t remember installing?
  3. If that didn’t 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 computer at lots of locations where unwanted software is known to hook into your machine. 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:
