Where does DownloadCrowd.com come from?
Were you to access DownloadCrowd.com directly, you will see nothing but a blank page. This web domain is used to distribute pop-ups just like Gio.mappindone.net or lpcloudsvr302.com.

What does DownloadCrowd.com do?
The web domain itself does not cause any harm. The problem lies in who can make use of it, and how. The pop-ups may have a lot of different variations. For example, DownloadCrowd.com may display browser, flash player, video codec update advertisements, urging you to click the download link embedded in the pop-up and download the upgrade.
However, instead of downloading a video player update, you are likely to install even more potentially unwanted and perhaps even dangerous applications on your computer. You are definitely susceptible to adware infiltration, so whenever you see a pop-up appear on your browser, do not click it! If it is a DownloadCrowd.com pop-up, you should definitely close it at once.
