Sound familiar? You see pop-up ads from euromillionairesystem.tv while browsing web sites that typically don’t advertise in pop-up windows. The pop-ups manage to evade the built-in pop-up blockers in Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer or Safari. Perhaps the euromillionairesystem.tv pop-ups appear when clicking search results from the Google search engine? Or does the pop-ups show up even when you’re not browsing?
Here’s a screenshot of the euromillionairesystem.tv pop-up ad when it showed up on my system:
If this sounds like what you are seeing on your machine, you presumably have some adware installed on your machine that pops up the euromillionairesystem.tv ads. Contacting the owner of the site would be a waste of time. They are not responsible for the ads. I’ll try help you to remove the euromillionairesystem.tv pop ups in this blog post.
I found the euromillionairesystem.tv pop-up on one of the lab machines 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 website that usually don’t show advertisements, or if some new files have been saved to the hard-drive.
euromillionairesystem.tv resolves to the 188.8.131.52 address. euromillionairesystem.tv was created on 2014-12-22.
So, how do you remove the euromillionairesystem.tv pop-up ads? On the machine where I got the euromillionairesystem.tv ads I had TinyWallet, BrowserWarden and BlockAndSurf installed. I removed them with FreeFixer and that stopped the euromillionairesystem.tv pop-ups and all the other ads I was getting in Mozilla Firefox.
The issue with pop-ups such as 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.
To remove the euromillionairesystem.tv pop-up ads you need to check your machine for adware or other types of unwanted software and uninstall it. Here’s my suggested removal procedure:
The first thing I would do to remove the euromillionairesystem.tv pop-ups is to examine the programs installed on the machine, by opening the “Uninstall programs” dialog. You can find this dialog from the Windows Control Panel. If you are using one of the more recent versions of Windows you can just type in “uninstall” in the Control Panel’s search field to find that dialog:
Do you see something strange-looking listed there or something that you don’t remember installing? Tip: Sort on the “Installed On” column to see if something was installed about the same time as you started seeing the euromillionairesystem.tv pop-ups.
Then I would check the browser add-ons. Adware often show up under the add-ons menu in Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer or Safari. Is there anything that looks suspicious? Anything that you don’t remember installing?
I think you will be able to identify and uninstall the adware with the steps outlined above, but in case that did not work you can try the FreeFixer removal tool to identify and remove the adware. FreeFixer is a freeware tool that I’ve developed since 2006. It’s a tool designed to manually find and remove unwanted software. When you’ve found the unwanted files you can simply tick a checkbox and click on the Fix button to remove the unwanted file.
FreeFixer’s removal feature is not crippled like many other removal tools out there. It will not require you to pay a fee just when you are about to remove the unwanted files.
And if you’re having a hard time deciding if a file is clean or adware in FreeFixer’s scan result, click on the More Info link for the file. That will open up a web page which contains more information about the file. On that web page, check out the VirusTotal report which can be quite useful:
