The program also shows you suggestions on online shopping webpages like ebay.com, bestbuy.com, amazon.com, etc. If you want to get rid of all these ads, you should delete Platamoose from your PC.
If you are wondering how you ended up with the adware in first place, you should think about what programs you have recently acquired.
