- Shows commercial adverts
- Annoying Pop-up's
If you often shop online, perhaps you have encountered many applications which promise to help you save money on your purchases. ShopperPro is also one of these browser plugins that are easily compatible with Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer web browsers. Once it gets installed on the computer, ShopperPro collects information on your web browsing habits, such as the sites you frequent the most or your most common web search queries. If you do not want this information to be shared with unknown third parties, you should uninstall ShopperPro from your computer.
Quite a few users think that ShopperPro is a virus, although that is definitely not the case. For one, ShopperPro does not even use any stealth techniques to enter the system. You can find the application available for download at shopper-pro.com. As you can see, it does not try to hide its presence, and probably the only annoying thing about the application is that it may also come bundled with shareware. It is known to travel together with dealPly adware, which in turn can also be downloaded at third party file hosting pages. It just means that if you want to avoid ShopperPro, you simply need to be attentive during freeware installation, so that you would be able to un-tick all the software installation options that do not satisfy you.
Nevertheless, if ShopperPro is already installed on your computer, you can expect a stream of pop-up ads whenever you browse popular online shopping websites, such as amazon.com, ebay.com or any other. ShopperPro starts displaying the commercial ads once it has enough data to generate a custom flow of commercial ads in the shape of coupons, discount offers and so on. You will probably be surprised at how relevant these ads might seem to you. That would happen because of all the data collected on your browsing habits.
Although that is not exactly illegal, you need to take into account the possibility of third party exploitation. ShopperPro makes use of a third party advertising network, but it cannot guarantee the security of the third party content displayed via coupon pop-ups. Therefore, if a malevolent third party exploits ShopperPro for malware distribution, you could accidentally land on a malicious website after one stray click on a random coupon.
Needless to say, that you need to protect your system from any potential infections, and removing ShopperPro will definitely protect your PC from any unwelcome intruders. Follow the instructions below to terminate ShopperPro manually, and then do perform a full system scan with a reliable computer security program that would help you determine your system is safe or not. Should any potential threats be detected, get yourself a reliable computer security application and remove all the dangerous programs automatically.
