If you see the Presenoker warning pop-up message, your computer may have adware installed. Presenoker is an emerging detection seen with increasing frequency that indicates an adware strain specifically attacking computers. You may have unwittingly downloaded this Potentially Unwanted Program (or PUP) via an installer-bundle containing other free apps or tools that you found on an unsafe website.
By definition, Presenoker could also be labeled as adware, as it is designed to inject annoying and unwanted ads and banners into websites. It can also insert unsolicited hyperlinks in regular texts, and may generate misleading pop-ups that advise users to download fake updates or suspicious apps and other software. Presenoker is also believed to have browser hijacking characteristics, as it can change browser settings to redirect users to third-party websites.
The reason that adware like Presenoker changes a user’s browser’s homepage and default search provider is to manipulate search results by redirecting users to sponsored websites. This is done to generate advertising revenues for the creators of the adware or PUP. It is not known to what level these third-party websites are vetted, and you may be led to dangerous sites that may be harmful to your computer.
So, as a result of having Presenoker on your computer, you may be redirected to potentially harmful websites. PUPs like Presenoker can also collect your browsing history, visited URLs, and other personally non-identifiable data. This information may then be used for online marketing purposes.
