Lucky Leap Ads virus

If you are constantly displayed various coupon and discount offers on your browser, it is very likely that you have accidentally installed Lucky Leap Ads virus on your computer. Although the application does have the word “virus” in its name, it is not exactly a computer virus. It is an adware program that is compatible with Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome browsers. What is more, it does not enter your computer surreptitiously, so if you see ads from this program being displayed, it is probably you have installed the adware along with some other freeware program, you have downloaded from a random third party website.

For example, you can find Lucky Leap Ads virus on cNET website, and if you download and install the application from there, you will also end up installing such additional programs as MyPC Backup and others.

In order to display coupon offers that are related to your general online shopping search queries Lucky Leap Ads virus collects information on your web browsing habits via cookies.

    This is the way to get rid of Lucky Leap adware. When all other advice I read failed, deleting those files listed above worked. Thanks!

    And beware ANYTHING you get from Download.com or Cnet.com or whatever that hot mess is called these days. I mainly suspect 1ClickDownloader for my Lucky Leap infestation.

    Good luck everyone.
