What is Storm Alerts Ads?
If you keep noticing Storm Alerts Ads in your browsers, it means that you have Storm Alerts installed on your PC. Storm Alerts is classified as a potentially unwanted application because it displays various adverts in your browsers.
The program itself is supposed to notify you of any sever weather by presenting you with data taken from NOAA’s National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center. Although you may find that useful, you should also know that Storm Alerts Ads will appear on your screen as long as you have the potentially unwanted application installed. If you want to get rid of Storm Alerts Ads you will have to uninstall Storm Alerts from your PC.
How does Storm Alerts work?
It is possible that Storm Alerts came together with a freeware program you have recently installed. Potentially unwanted applications tend to travel bundled with freeware and shareware. If you did not pay much attention to the installation process, it is very possible that you did not even realize that you installed it. That is why we recommend you pay more attention to free third party software installations and always choose Advanced Installation so you can deselect all additional applications. Bundled software is usually not useful to the computer user in any way so the best thing to do is to avoid it altogether.
Storm Alerts Ads start appearing as soon as the potentially unwanted program gets access to your system. Various pop-ups, banners, in-text ads, video ads and other types of commercial content appear no matter which page you visit. Moreover, if you click on these ads it is very possible that you infect your computer with malware. Storm Alerts does not endorse the adverts that it presents and that means they can easily be false. We recommend you stay away from these links and eliminate Storm Alerts Ads from your computer as soon as you can.
