OptiShopper is an advertising-supported application that can randomize the letters of its name. It does that in order not to be removed very quickly by computer users; however, if it happens that you detect a program whose name is similar to OptiShopper on your PC, you should remove it without further consideration. If you ignore our advice, there is no doubt that you will see commercial ads on your screen. They might seem very interesting at first sight; however, you should know that they might cause harm to your computer as well. The security experts at pcthreat.com suggest that you do not click on them in any way and hurry to get rid of OptiShopper. The deletion of this program is the only way to get rid of advertisements.
Of course, OptiShopper seeks to lure you into clicking on ads; however, research has shown that this program also performs other activities. According to the specialists at pcthreat.com, the application might connect to the Internet Without a user’s permission. What’s more, it might collect data about user’s activities on the web. In fact, all JustPlugIt-based adware programs act the same, so you should be very cautious in order not to allow them to enter your system in the future. If you do not think that you can protect your system from malware, you should install an antimalware tool on the system and keep it enabled all the time.
It is impossible to download OptiShopper from its official website optishopper.net, but this unwanted program is still very prevalent. Therefore, our researchers believe that it travels bundled with other unreliable applications. The recent study has shown that OptiShopper is distributed via InstallRex installers. People download them from torrent and P2P websites when they click on fake Download buttons. We recommend being very careful in order not to end up with similar programs in the future. By saying “careful”, we mean that you should surf various file sharing websites cautiously and always pay attention to the setup wizard while installing new programs.
If OptiShopper has already entered your system, it is necessary to remove it as soon as possible. Unfortunately, it is not very easy to do that because only Internet Explorer users will be able to get rid of it via Control Panel. If you are a Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome user, you will have to delete extensions added to your browsers as well. We have prepared the instructions in order to help you do that. Of course, you can leave all the work for SpyHunter or a similar antimalware tool.
