Coupon Matcher Adware Removal
Coupon Matcher is a browser add-on developed by Web Marketing Services LLC. It is claimed that the purpose of this application is to help you save money during online shopping. This feature makes the browser extension very attractive to the IE, Chrome or Firefox users. Although it is not a malicious program you should probably remove it because the application has its downside too. It displays pop-ups and ads once the extension is installed, thus eventually becoming very annoying.
The pop-ups displayed by the add-on contain various attractive offers and discounts. Unfortunately, by clicking on the provided links you’ll be redirected to websites owned by third parties. As a result, your computer might be infected with malware or other unwanted programs. So those pop-ups are not only annoying but potentially dangerous too.
Although Coupon Matcher is disguised as a useful application it’s actual purpose is to generate web traffic thus increasing revenue. Furthermore, the application is capable of gathering information concerning your web activity. The IT specialist call this kind of applications PUP’s (potentially unwanted program). Even though these programs are not considered to be a virus, they still have harmful features. For example, they can deeply infiltrate the PC just like rootkits. Furthermore, these applications might act as browser hijacker, thus making the browsing an unpleasant task.
Fortunately, you can avoid these applications. Firstly, you should be aware what kind of program you’re about to install. Freeware often has additional programs in the installation file, presented to you as optional installs. If you want to avoid those additional programs, always choose custom installation mode. Then you’ll be able to perform a clean installation. Finally, using software provided by an unknown developer or distributor is always dangerous; in this case, you should always look for information about them on the internet.
