Computer users are always interested in programs producing virtual coupons and saving deals. There is no doubt that Pricedownloader is not a beneficial tool even if it does promise you to help save time and money while browsing the web. If you have discovered the plugin running on your web browsers, it is most likely that the application was installed without your knowledge. First of all, illicit distribution is used to infiltrate the program onto as many computers as possible, as this is the only way for its developers to generate profit. Secondly, the official page pricedownloader.info is currently suspended by the ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers). You definitely should remove Pricedownloader.
There is no doubt that you need to delete Pricedownloader because this application is usually installed illegally and is responsible for introducing various suspicious advertisements. As our researchers have found out, the displayed advertisements are usually presented by Price Companion. Note that you may find advertisements managed by various other advertisement supported applications because the add-on could be installed onto the system alongside other adware. Regardless of the number of advertisement supported applications running on the system, we recommend that you delete all of them in order to ensure that misleading offers, coupons and price comparison pop-ups would not be pushed as reliable.
Not all advertisement supported programs are equally dangerous; however, you definitely should not trust those installed onto the computer without your authorization. Using the services of applications bundled together with other suspicious programs is not recommended either. The displayed adverts could be used to boost traffic to various websites, including those related to drive-by download scams. For example, an advertisement displayed by Pricedownloader, or Price Companion, could presented bogus services and trick you into downloading an allegedly necessary flash player update. If you install the fake update, you could end up installing adware and other potentially undesirable programs.
Do you find coupons by Pricedownloader beneficial and useful? That means that you have not clicked on a potentially unreliable advert yet. Note that visiting third-party sites could lead to the installation of unreliable data tracking cookies. What is more, the displayed offers could be unreliable and present bogus services. Therefore, we recommend having Pricedownloader deleted from the Windows operating system. Use the manual removal guides below and do not forget to delete the application from Mozilla Firefox because the extension remains running even after you uninstall the program. Afterwards you can install a malware scanner to check if other potentially undesirable applications are running on the computer as well.
