Hi there! I am wondering how this Internet Program Ads invades my computer. It is so annoying to see it displaying in front of me. It brings no good to me at all. All I get are those rubbish pop-up stuffs after it is in my computer. And my computer becomes very slow now. I have tried many ways to delete this thing from my computer but no luck. I have no idea how to clean this virus away from my computer now as even my antivirus can’t get rid of it. It makes me feel very frustrated. Can someone provide any advice for me?
Internet Program Ads can bring a lot of issues to the computer. Once stalled, it becomes a big potential threat to your system and your finance. By adding relevant extension to your browser, your browser won’t work as usual since some functions of the browser are disabled. And because it is usually bundled with other free software programs, so if you are not careful to download any unwanted program online, the computer will easily be attacked by the vicious adware. As a matter of fact, some programs in the computer are inaccessible due to this adware and your computer’s performance is degraded seriously if you let it linger in the computer. You should keep alert if you find this adware and removal process should be taken before it makes further damage to your computer.
1. It can not only change your web pages, but also alter other settings to add toolbars, pop-up advertisements, and bookmarks that you did not create.
2. It can modify the homepage settings of your web browser, more commonly by reducing your internet security options. And the worse thing is it prevents you from changing them back.
3. New toolbars or Favorites are installed that give you icons and links to web pages that you don’t want.
4. It may block you from visiting certain website you’d like to visit and show an error page instead.
5. It will display constant pop-up ads, sometimes in such large amounts that you are not able to close neither the ads nor the browser.
Internet Program Ads hijacks your browser to redirect your web search results and changes the homepage and browser settings. To completely uninstall it from an infected system, manual removal is the first choice because sometimes antivirus software cannot pick up the exact computer threat timely or remove it permanently. Now most browser hijackers are quite similar to spyware and adware threats and therefore cannot be removed with the help of popular antivirus products. Users can follow the manual guide here to get rid of this adware completely.

2. End the malicious process from Task Manager.
Once Internet Program Ads is installed, computer user may notice that CPU usage randomly jumps to 100 percent. At any time Windows always has many running processes. A process is an individual task that the computer runs. In general, the more processes, the more work the computer has to do and the slower it will run. If your system’s CPU spike is constant and remain at a constant 90-95%, users should check from Task Manager and see if there is a suspicious process occupying the system resources and then end it immediately.
(The name of the virus process can be random.)

3. Show hidden files and folders.

Being an adware stage, Internet Program Ads is able to process endless unstoppable plugs to block you from visiting the desired websites. And irritating pop-up advertisements crop up on your screen when you carry on online shopping activities. It really degrades the system performance as it pops-up continuously in regular interval. The running speed of the infected computer is greatly affected and the page you are browsing can freeze up constantly.
