I’m using Adblock Plus but I still see suspicious ads

What happened?

Adblock Plus has detected ads that are likely injected with Adware, which may have infected your computer.

What is Adware?

Adware is one type of Malware, short for "Malicious Software.” It is a term generally used for software installed on your computer that is designed to infiltrate or damage a computer system without your consent. In many cases you obtained this software without knowing it, as these applications are often bundled in other software installers.

Why doesn't Adblock Plus block these ads?

Adblock Plus is designed to block ads that are delivered from websites or their advertising partners. Malicious software can inject ads in such a way that the ads can not reliably be blocked by Adblock Plus. The best way to stop these ads is to remove the Malware that displays them.
