How to delete Domflash.ru ads
What is Domflash.ru?

Domflash.ru ads are products of an unwanted suspicious program. As this program shows hundreds of different commercial advertisements, we call it adware. If you have ever encountered an advertising-supported application (adware), you probably know that these programs have only one aim in mind, i.e. to provide users with commercial advertisements in order to promote third-party web pages.

They might have a variety of forms; however, we believe that you will mainly see coupons, pop-ups, and banners.

Advertisements themselves are not bad but they might take you to third-party webpages they promote, and they might contain malicious software. Apart from being able to redirect users to corrupted web pages, adware programs collect information about users in order to pick the best and the most interesting advertisements for them. Yes, Domflash.ru ads will be based on the information about your activities on the web. We cannot guarantee, but we believe that advertising-supported applications might record personal information too. It means that you need to erase them not only to uninstall Domflash.ru, but also to protect the privacy.
