If you have the 9convert advertisements on your computer, it’s because you have been hit with adware. Adware is a form of malware that aims to display ads via your browser that follow you around when you surf the web. Generally, you want to remove adware as soon as you identify it because it’s possible some of the ads, depending on the network, are malicious.
Most reports regarding the 9convert adware come from Windows users. So, we recommend using the Spybot – Search & Destroy antimalware program which also removes adware. If you see the 9convert on Mac, you need an antimalware program compatible with Mac instead such as Malwarebytes.
Some of our competitors might give long guides regarding how to manually uninstall the adware from the browser. We don’t recommend manually uninstalling adware. You usually need to use a reliable adware removal tool so it not only removed the obvious files from your computer and browser but will remove any leftover remnants as well. And the adware removal tool will restore your browser settings so you don’t have to do anything yourself. If you did want to remove it manually, you can try doing so by heading to the browser extensions page and removing the malicious extension.
We recommend using Spybot – Search & Destroy to remove the 9convert adware. You can use any of your own preferred antimalware/adware removal tools if you have a favorite already. Provided it is reliable, it should remove the adware infection. If you don’t have one on your computer already, Spybot – Search & Destroy should remove it for you.
