Featured Deals ads are not harmful themselves; however, unreliable links might be embedded into them and thus you might be taken to unreliable websites.

An advertising-supported application which distributes Featured Deals does not have its official website; thus, our security experts believe that it might use the method called “bundling”. It means that the program travels with other applications, for instance, freeware in order to enter your system. Unfortunately, various browser hijackers, suspicious browser plugins, and different potentially unwanted programs might slither onto your computer together with other programs as well; thus, we recommend being extremely cautious. Firstly, you should not browse unreliable websites or download software from them; secondly, it is necessary to make sure that the program is reliable before launching or installing it on the system, and finally, you should definitely install an antimalware tool on your computer.

In order to stop Featured Deals ads from appearing on your screen, you should delete the program that distributes them. It might be a difficult task because malware tends to hide. Therefore, we advise you to save your time and acquire an automatic malware remover. There are plenty of them available nowadays; thus, you should choose the most reliable one. If you are interested in our opinion, we believe that SpyHunter is one of those tools that are worth investing in.
