How to remove Desktopleads.info

Desktopleads.info is a malicious website known for distributing unwanted software and ads, often referred to as adware. It infects computers primarily through deceptive pop-up ads or potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) that users might inadvertently download. Once in a system, it manipulates browser settings to display intrusive advertisements and redirects users to other suspicious websites. The core aim of such websites is to generate revenue through click fraud or the installation of other potentially harmful software. Desktopleads.info exploits browser notifications by tricking users into allowing push notifications. It often deceives users with misleading prompts like confirming that they are not robots or offering access to adult content. Once users click ‘allow,’ they start receiving unwanted ads even when their browser is closed. The adware can infect all mainstream browsers, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Safari, and is not limited to a specific device, meaning it can affect both Windows and Mac systems.
