Does this sound like your story? You see pop-up advertisements from banners.unibet.com while browsing on web sites that normally don’t advertise in pop-up windows. The pop-ups manage to escape the built-in pop-up blockers in Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer or Safari. Maybe the banners.unibet.com popups appear when clicking search results from the Google search engine? Or does the pop-ups appear even when you’re not browsing?
Does this sound like your machine, you most likely have some adware installed on your machine that pops up the banners.unibet.com ads. So there’s no use contacting the site owner. The ads are not coming from them. I’ll do my best to help you remove the banners.unibet.com pop-up in this blog post. This is done by removing the unwanted adware from your machine.
I found the banners.unibet.com 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 anything new has appeared, such as pop-up windows, new tabs in the browsers, injected ads on web site that usually don’t show ads, or if some new files have been saved to the hard-drive.
So, how do you remove the banners.unibet.com pop-up ads? On the machine where I got the banners.unibet.com ads I had BlockAndSurf, TinyWallet and BrowserWarden installed. I removed them with FreeFixer and that stopped the banners.unibet.com pop-ups and all the other ads I was getting in Mozilla Firefox.
BlockAndSurf was the adware that caused the pop-ups in my case. I could see this since the pop-up was labeled “Ads by BlockAndSurf”.
The problem with pop-ups like this one is that it can be initiated by many variants of adware, not just the adware on my system. I think that adware such as CheckMeUp, SpeedCheck, Salus, SaferSurf and NewPlayer can also be responsible for the banners.unibet.com popups. And there are probably other variants too. 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 banners.unibet.com pop-up ads you need to examine your system for adware or other types of unwanted software and uninstall it. Here’s my suggested removal procedure:
- 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?
- You can also check the add-ons you installed in your browsers. Same thing here, do you see something that you don’t remember installing?
- If that didn’t solve the problem, 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 system at lots of locations where unwanted software is known to hook into your system. 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:
