Is “Hello, New User” a Virus?

“Hello, New User” messages are caused by a potentially unwanted program; some people might call it a virus, though it is not a very accurate definition. Potentially unwanted programs, or PUPs, are different from regular viruses, and many antivirus programs either can’t detect them at all or are set by default to ignore them. PUPs are aimed at getting income for their creators; usually they display advertisements in web-browsers or generate pop-ups and notifications prompting users to install some software, or redirect users to specific sites to boost traffic of those. Similar to other PUPs, “Hello, New User” adware can get installed on a computer together with freeware downloaded from sites like download.cnet.com, filehippo.com and others.
