Does this sound like what you are seeing right now? You see pop-up ads from euro-millionaire-system.com while browsing at web sites that typically don’t advertise in pop-up windows. The pop-ups manage to escape the built-in pop up blockers in Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari or Opera. Maybe the euro-millionaire-system.com pop-ups appear when clicking search results from Google? Or does the pop-ups appear even when you’re not browsing?
If this sounds like what you are seeing on your system, you presumably have some adware installed on your computer that pops up the euro-millionaire-system.com ads. Contacting the site owner would be a waste of time. The ads are not coming from them. I’ll try help you with the euro-millionaire-system.com removal in this blog post.
I found the euro-millionaire-system.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 something new has appeared, such as pop-up windows, new tabs in the browsers, injected ads on site that usually don’t show advertisements, or if some new files have been saved to the hard-drive.

So, how do you remove the euro-millionaire-system.com pop-up ads? On the machine where I got the euro-millionaire-system.com ads I had istartsurf, Movie Wizard and MedPlayerNewVersion installed. I removed them with FreeFixer and that stopped the euro-millionaire-system.com pop-ups and all the other ads I was getting in Mozilla Firefox.
Judging from Alexa’s traffic rank, euro-millionaire-system.com is getting quite a lot of traffic since the middle of April:
The bad news with pop-ups such as this one is that it can be initiated by many variants of adware, not just the adware running on my computer. This makes it impossible to say exactly what you need to remove to stop the pop-ups.
Anyway, here’s my suggestion for the euro-millionaire-system.com ads removal:
- 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?
- How about your add-ons you installed in Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer or Safari. Anything in the list 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 machine at lots of locations where unwanted software is known to hook into your computer. 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:
