Remove jsf.jsticket.net pop-up virus (Removal Guide)

If you keep getting a pop-up on your web browser with the URL jsf.jsticket.net then your computer is infected with adware. Not only such pop ups are annoying but also potentially dangerous because of misleading and even malicious products they are offering. In my case it was a fake media player downloader that was bundled with toolbars and spyware.

jsf.jsticket.net pop-up

To stop jsf.jsticket.net pop-ups you need to uninstall adware that triggers them. In my case it was an application called LyricsSay but it could also be SuperLyrics, ElectroLyrics, LyricsMonkey or HD-Plus. Scammers change adware names rather often so, I can't possibly know every single of them but it's usually related to 'Lyrics'. The good news is that this adware can be easily uninstall via Control Panel. However, keep in mind that the fact you got infected means that your system might still be compromised. It would be a good idea to run a full malware scan with at least two anti-malware applications to make sure there are no other malicious applications installed on your computer. To remove this adware and possibly other related malware from your computer, please follow the removal guide below. Uninstall adware and check your web browser for malicious add-ons. If you have any questions, please leave a comment below. Good luck and be safe online!
