This adware is developed by Time Lapse Solutions which works same as the Zombie Alert. This is an useless application which only waste your time and arise risk of your PC to be infected. Users infected with this adware generally get ads which contain the text such as brought to you by Zombie News, Ads by Zombie News, proudly presented by Zombie News etc. The ads get displayed on each and every webpage that you open and make your browsing messy. Its ads may sound good but once you click on them then it will redirect you to some malicious site where you will face serious problems.

    This adware application will keep tracking your browsing activity and can access your sensitive information which violates your privacy. The ads which it display are also based on your browsing activity so that you can easily click on them. There are many ways through which this threat get promoted but the most common way is through free software bundler. It comes attached with free software such as PDF creators, media players, download managers, Youtube video downloader etc. So you can avoid it by using custom installation method while installing any software.

    If you need to get rid of adware or malware you need to download anti-malware tool (choose any trusted tool the are similar). Boot your pc in safe mode and scan it for malware. Delete all this trash and clean your registry by ccleaner. Now you should boot your computer in standard mode. I read a lot of guides about this problem on and it works for most types of malicious programs.

    Ok, people this should work for some viruses, but the bigger more complex ones will probably not work with this method. Though this has worked for me twice.
