Unfortunately, YouTube does not have a feature of downloading videos directly to your computer. However, there are lots of independent services that allow doing so by pasting video URLs and downloading them for free. And Ytmp3.cc is one of those. But, because these services are usually not legitimate, they can display unwanted ads and redirect to other suspicious websites used to spread malicious content for revenue purposes. Of course, naive users are happy to use Ytmp3.cc regardless of intrusive redirects. However, this careless behavior often leads to adware infection that therefore shows malicious advertisement on desktop. This type of infection can gather personal data and transmit it over to third parties without the user's consent.
Hellopushworld.com is a shady website that promotes redirects to other unreliable pages that may contain malicious ads and force you into downloading some harmful software. There are many other sites that operate like Hellopushworld.com and pose threats. Normally, users get relocated to these pages unwillingly through some potentially unwanted software that might be installed in a browser or computer. This kind of resource is meant to garner users data like IP-addresses, browsing history, passwords and other delicate information that third-parties can leverage for making a profit. In addition, Hellopushworld.com tricks people into clicking on "Allow notification" buttons to verify that you are not a robot, confirm that you are 18+, enable Adobe Flash Player and so forth. Some users are being caught on their inexperience and carelessness. You can then assume that clicking on "Allow" buttons inevitably leads to the installation of adware that scatters deceptive advertisements around the desktop.
Usinesmycete.info is a notification feature abuse, that appears as a pop-up while browsing. It is a compromised domain, that hosts phishing and deceiving landing pages. This pop-up suggests, that you have to click on the "Allow notifications" button to continue browsing, open the redirected page, solve the CAPTCHA or other delusive requirements. When inexperienced users intentionally or inadvertently click on the "Allow" button, it then forces the immediate integration of adware on your computer. Adware is used to spread malicious links and other unwanted redirects to untrustworthy pages, that are hidden under innocent-looking advertisements periodically popping upright on your desktop. The presence of this software may then result in significant data loss like credentials, geolocations, browsing history and other information based on users' habits. It thereby can be transferred to third-parties for revenue purposes.
Pushbesttools.com or Pushbesttool.com stands for one of the rouge-type domains that are meant to penetrate adware into your computer via fake push-notification pop-ups appearing in the upper part of a page.

Usually, you can see this type of pop-ups when entering unwanted pages that cause a chain of intermediate landing pages that force you into clicking on the "Allow notifications" button, therefore, unlocking the access to the website you were inclined to enter initially. Beware clicking on this notification when you see messages like "Click on Allow button to continue browsing" or "Click Allow to continue". Because once you allow receiving push notifications it will, therefore, start displaying deceptive ads right on your desktop that may contain redirects to malicious websites and other unwanted resources which increases the odds of getting infiltrated by some poor software.
