InterStat – What is it?
InterStat is the domain you will be redirected to if you have an adware application on your computer. Adware can get into computers using software bundles and usually users are not even aware of its existence. The most telling sign is the never-ending pop-ups leading to, in this particular case, InterStat. Adware is not malicious. It will not harm your computer, besides slowing it down and making your browsers crash more often. Sometimes adware can expose users to malware but this adware should not do that. It primarily aims to make pay-per-click revenue by redirecting you to InterStat. In other words, it is useless to you and will only disrupt your browsing. Delete InterStat.
InterStat adware enters your computer along with free software. This is not an unusual practice as who would willingly obtain adware. So if no one will install it themselves, adware uses a sneaky method to enter. When you install free software you got from the Internet, there always is a chance that something is attached to it and that something will install along with the freeware. If there is something attached, in order to prevent it from installing, you need to deselect it during the freeware installation process. Choose Advanced (Custom) settings and uncheck the boxes of the added items. You can then proceed to install the freeware. Do not choose Default settings as you will not be given the option of deselecting anything. Always choose Advanced and you will not have to remove InterStat or some other unwanted item.
InterStat is not associated with this adware and is just a tool that hackers take advantage of to make money. They make money by showing you those ads, and that is the primary reason why adware even exists. Adware gets into all leading browsers, including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, and starts displaying advertisements. Constant pop-ups are the primary sign that it is indeed adware that is causing them and it’s not just a random pop-ups that appears when you visit a certain web page. You can close them all you want, the only way to get rid of them permanently would be to uninstall InterStat adware. Adware got into your computer without your explicit permission and is making money by using you. This is not how a program, worthy of staying on your computer, should behave. Which is why we suggest you remove InterStat as soon as possible.
