ShopperMaster is an adware application that will spam you with annoying commercial advertisements each time you access online shopping websites. Users often do not even notice how they install the likes of ShopperMaster. It happens because this application gets distributed bundled with freeware applications via third-party websites. You should constantly run a full system scan to avoid potential system threats, and if you happen to have this application on your computer, you should remove ShopperMaster immediately. Keeping adware applications on your computer may result in serious computer security issues, so you get rid of them all without further ado.
We have encountered similar applications before. ShopperMaster comes from a big family of adware applications that have been spreading around the web. ShopperMaster is just a new version of CouponScanner, SaveNShop, Unicoupon and other similar applications. The common feature of these potentially unwanted applications is that they all have dysfunctional homepages. It is possible to access the main homepage for ShopperMaster via shoppermaster.info, but the only piece of information you will find there is that “this tool will let you see a complete and updated list of the best buys online.” It makes an impression that this application can help you purchase your favorite goods at the best price.
Unfortunately, that is not exactly the case. Just like it is impossible to download ShopperMaster at the official website, it is highly unlikely that this application will provide you with relevant and safe information on online deals. ShopperMaster relies on third-party advertising networks and does not review the content that gets embedded into its advertisements. Hence, if malevolent third-parties decide to make use of ShopperMaster to expose you to online marketing and even malware-related websites, you could eventually get infected with malware.
In order to avoid such adware applications, you should stay away from third-party file hosting websites because they might be hosting installers that distribute ShopperMaster and other unwanted applications. These installers include InstallRex, Vittalia and Amonetize. The main distributor may differ based on your location and which website you access. Either way, the most important thing is to be attentive when you install new applications on your computer. If you do not download them from official vendor websites, there is a chance they come with additional (mostly unnecessary) applications.
Although adware apps are not extreme computer security threats, you should remove ShopperMaster from the system at once. After manual removal run a full PC scan with SpyHunter free scanner. You have to make sure that you have terminated all the potential threats. Also, invest in a licensed antispyware application that will safeguard your system against similar intruders in the future.
