If you discover online pop-ups supposedly presented by Norton indicating that your computer is infected with adware, spyware, or viruses that supposedly require removal, you need to be suspicious. A reliable antivirus would never introduce you to random pop-ups indicating the existence of malware, even if the antivirus is not installed onto your operating system. In fact, if you keep facing Norton-fix.net warnings, it is most likely that your operating system is truly affected by adware, but not by adware identified via the warnings. Advert-supported programs may be installed onto your operating system to present supposedly beneficial deals and offers. Unfortunately, most ad-supported apps require removal, because they are intrusive. If you do not remove Norton-fix.net related adware, this is the kind of ads you will be introduced to.
