What is Java Recommended virus?
Java Recommended virus usually refers to the pop-ups that appear on your screen if your PC is infected with a potentially unwanted application or an adware. The software uses these fake pop-ups in order to trick you into downloading other ad-supported or even malicious programs. Adware applications are usually compatible with all web browsers so you may see Java Recommended virus no matter which one of them you use.
They travel bundled with freeware and shareware and in most cases are installed silently. If you are not sure which application you need to get rid of in order to eliminate Java Recommended virus you should scan your system with a malware scanner.
How does Java Recommended virus work?
If you keep running into Java Recommended virus pop-ups and other advertisements while browsing the Web, it is very likely your computer is infected with an ad-supported program. If you have recently installed free software without paying too much attention to the installation process, that is how you got infected. Adware usually gets installed if you choose Quick or Recommended installation. However, if you select Advanced Installation you will be able to deny access to the additional software that you have no use for. We recommend you do that next time you install freeware.
As for the Java Recommended pop-ups that appear on your screen, you should be very careful with them. Do not follow any of their instructions. The message “It is recommended to have Java in order to proceed” is completely fake and if you click the “Install” button you will not be downloading the promised software. Instead, you will acquire a completely useless application like adware or a browser hijacker in the best case scenario. In the worst case you will infect your system with malware. That can result in serious system damage and financial losses. You should delete Java Recommended virus from your browsers as soon as you can.
