What is Netflix.com?
If you see lots of Netflix.com pop-ups it means that your computer has been infected by an adware program that displays in-text and other types of ads in your browsers. Netflix.com is a legitimate website where you can watch movies and TV shows. However, if you keep seeing ads that appear as underlined words that promote the website your PC must be infected.
Adware programs are usually compatible with all browsers which means that you could see the ads in any of them. There is no point in keeping ad-supported applications on your PC, so if your system is infected you should delete Netflix.com as soon as possible.
How does Netflix.com adware work?
As it has already been mentioned, you see Netflix.com ads in your browsers because your computer has been infected by adware. If you are wondering how did that happen the answer is simple. Most of the time adware enters your PC via bundled downloads. When you download freeware and shareware from unreliable sources it is very likely that together with the program you wanted you will also install additional software. There is a way to avoid that. If you choose Advanced Installation you will be able to deselect all potentially unwanted programs and only keep what you actually need. If you skip through the installation wizard you may end up with useless software that you will have to delete later anyway.
If your computer is indeed infected by adware you should probably see other ads, pop-ups and banners as well. You may also get redirected in the middle of your browsing. Keep in mind that not all websites promoted by Netflix.com related adware are safe. You may be tricked into visiting a corrupted page and if so you could be infect your PC with malware that will cause a lot more damage than an ad-supported program. Therefore you should terminate Netflix.com related adware as soon as you can.
