Remove multilotto.news Pop Up Ads

If this description sounds like your system, you almost certainly have some adware installed on your system that pops up the multilotto.news ads. There’s no use contacting the owners of the web site you currently were browsing. The adverts are not coming from them. I’ll do my best to help you remove the multilotto.news pop-up in this blog post.

I found the multilotto.news 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 site that usually don’t show ads, or if some new files have been saved to the hard-drive.

multilotto.news resolves to the 194.9.94.11 IP address. multilotto.news was registered on 2015-12-07.

So, how do you remove the multilotto.news pop-up ads? On the machine where I got the multilotto.news ads I had GamesDesktop, CPUMiner and PineTree installed. I removed them with FreeFixer and that stopped the multilotto.news pop-ups and all the other ads I was getting in Mozilla Firefox.

The problem with pop-ups like this one is that it can be initiated 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 remove the multilotto.news pop-up ads you need to review your system for adware or other types of unwanted software and uninstall it. Here’s my suggested removal procedure:

  1. What software do you have installed if you look in the Add/Remove programs dialog in the Windows Control Panel? Something that you don’t remember installing yourself or that was recently installed?
  2. How about your add-ons that you have in your browser. 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:
