Did you just get interrupted by a pop-up ad from land.pckeeper.software? You are not alone. I also get the land.pckeeper.software pop-ups while browsing. Do the pop-ups also circumvent the pop-up blocker in Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer or Safari. Then read on…
Here’s a screenshot of the land.pckeeper.software pop-up ad when it showed up on my machine:
Does this sound like what you are seeing, you apparently have some adware installed on your system that pops up the land.pckeeper.software ads.
So, how do you remove the land.pckeeper.software pop-up ads? On the machine where I got the land.pckeeper.software ads I had CPUMiner, PineTree and GamesDesktop installed. These three programs are often referred to as “Potentially Unwanted”. I removed these three and that stopped the pop-ups.
The problem with pop-ups like this one 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.
Anyway, here’s my suggestion for the land.pckeeper.software ads removal:
The first thing I would do to remove the land.pckeeper.software pop-ups is to examine the programs installed on the machine, by opening the “Uninstall programs” dialog. You can reach this dialog from the Windows Control Panel. If you are using one of the more recent versions of Windows OS you can just type in “uninstall” in the Control Panel’s search field to find that dialog:
Click on the “Uninstall a program” link and the Uninstall programs dialog will open up:
Do you see something suspicious listed there or something that you don’t remember installing? Can you see GamesDesktop, PineTree or CpuMiner? Tip: Sort on the “Installed On” column to see if some program was installed approximately about the same time as you started getting the land.pckeeper.software pop-ups.
The next thing to check would be your browser’s add-ons. Adware often appear under the add-ons dialog in Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer or Safari. Is there something that looks suspicious? Something that you don’t remember installing? Can you see GamesDesktop, PineTree or CpuMiner?
