PriceKeaper is known as adware. Vendors of this extension claim that it can help users enhance their online shopping experience. Unfortunately, this is not entirely accurate, as your browser will be flooded with adverts and pop-ups provided by the extension instead. If, unfortunately, your operating system is already running this intrusive application, we provide a detailed guide how to remove PriceKeaper and how to keep your system clean and safe.
Presented adverts are custom made for you because PriceKeaper tracks and gathers information about your online activity. Furthermore, this application allows third-parties to monitor your personal information as well. None of the third-party affiliates were reviewed by publishers of PriceKeaper so ads could turn out to be redirect links to corrupted websites. Websites like that could be implemented with an arbitrary code execution exploit. It means that just by landing on a hoax website your system is likely to get infected by other infections. The only way to avoid these malicious activities is to remove PriceKeaper from your operating system ASAP. Of course, this could have been avoided if you were running a professional malware detection and removal tool on your system in the first place.
You operating system could get infected with PriceKeaper via fictitious Java or Adobe updates. A lot of dubious websites may present you with pop-ups that will ask you to update your Adobe Flash player or Java. Seeing a familiar design of an installer users are often manipulated into installing a fake update that usually is malicious. Keep in mind that any authentic software by Adobe or Java will update automatically, and if it does not, you should first check the official vendors’ websites. Furthermore, running a professional antimalware tool would warn you about fictitious installers and pop-ups. Therefore, infections like PriceKeaper could be avoided.
You must delete PriceKeaper from your computer urgently. Manual removal is quite effective, and we provide a comprehensive guide but we firmly recommend using a professional malware remover in order to get rid of the leftovers of the infection. Sometimes the remaining traces of the infection on your operating system could cause a malicious application to restore itself. If the infections are capable of restoring themselves it in most cases, it means that it can be updated via remote server. Remote adware servers are often the cause of further infections. What is more, security conscious user should be running licensed antimalware software at all times.
