Adware Asank.c

Asank.c is in reality an adware program called a Trojan Downloader.  It downloads various other adware programs that deliver unsolicited advertising in the form of pop-ups, pop-unders, banner ads, or commit browser hijacking whenever you’re surfing the Internet.  It does this by bypassing your computer’s security settings.  The associated adware may have spyware capabilities, and may compromise your privacy and security.

All adware programs can decrease the performance and stability of your computer.  Over time, this may cause wear and tear on your system, and can lead to program and system crashes.  It is highly recommended that you remove Asank.c if you get infected with it.

If your computer is infected with Asank.c, you may have gotten it by visiting dubious websites, viewing pirated material, engaging in peer to peer file sharing, or downloading freeware or shareware.  These are considered to be unsafe browsing habits and should be avoided as much as possible.  You should also increase your browser’s security settings to avoid future infections.
