Animaltv.co is an adware program that can generate huge amounts of ads and fill your screen with them in order to make pay-per-click revenue. One or two annoying ads is nothing to worry about, especially if you tend to get them on questionable websites but if they are constantly appearing on your screen, the cause could be adware.
You could have picked it up accidentally when you were installing free software. Since no one would install adware otherwise, it either conceals itself as a useful tool or is added to freeware as an extra offer. If you stop downloading dubious programs and pay attention to what you install, you should be able to prevent these unnecessary infections. We would recommend that you do not press on any of the appearing ads as some may lead you to malware. Simply delete Ads by Animaltv.co and you should be able to go back to usual browsing.
Adware is usually attached to free software as an additional offer that you can choose to deselect. This is done in Advanced or Custom settings of the freeware installation process. Opt for those settings and you will see if anything has been added. If you do notice something, make sure you deselect it/them. Uncheck all the boxes that appear there so that you are sure you will not end up having to remove Ads by Animaltv.co or similar again. Refrain from using Default settings because that is exactly why you have adware installed.
