What is Hq-soft.com?
If Hq-soft.com pop-ups are constantly appearing in your browsers, your computer has been infected by a potentially unwanted application or adware. Hq-soft.com has been in particularly associated with Blitz Media Player.
Blitx Media Player created the online platform in order to display fake ads with misleading information. The annoying pop-up claims that you must install a web browser called Simple Web Explorer. Instead of acquiring the program, however, you will be downloading yet another potentially unwanted application or even malware. If you want to avoid that you should terminate Hq-soft.com and its related adware as well.
How does Hq-soft.com work?
The reason you see Hq-soft.com and most probably many more ads is because your computer has been infected with an ad-supported program. Adware is not useful in any way and the only reason it is created is to generate revenue. For the computer user it is nothing but a bother. It displays various banners, links, pop-ups, video, interstitial and other types of ads. The ads may appear on any page and it does not matter if that page has nothing to do with online shopping. You should not trust them either. You could be presented with false data and may be redirected to malware harboring websites. Stay away from all adverts until you get rid of Hq-soft.com related software.
Hq-soft.com pop-up claims that you need to install a new web browser. You will also see Terms of Service and a box that says “Set Simple Web Explorer as my default browser”. This all may seem like a legitimate software installation, but we assure you it is not. If you click on the Accept and Install button you will download adware or malware onto your computer. In order to eliminate Hq-soft.com pop-up for good you need to delete the program that causes it to appear.
How to remove Hq-soft.com?
If you know which program is the cause of the Hq-soft.com pop-up (usually it is Blitz Media), you can delete Hq-soft.com and the related adware yourself via Control Panel or you could download and install a malware removal tool that can do it for you. If you can not find the adware yourself, we suggest you use the malware scanner to scan your computer for potentially unwanted programs.
