- Shows commercial adverts
- Annoying Pop-up's
PriceMinus has been classified as adware that is apt to cause you a lot of problems, because the application shows unreliable commercial advertisements. Our researchers recommend that you remove this infection from your computer, because the content promoted by this program is oftentimes provided by shady advertisers who aim to infect your computer with malware to advance whatever agenda they may have -- most often something to do with money. So, if you do not want to get duped by scammers, we recommend that you remove PriceMinus from your computer as soon as you can.
PriceMinus is based on the JustPlugIt engine, a very popular platform for adware development, which was the basis for SpaceOffers, KeepersExt, BrowserEnhance, and various other adware programs. Of course we recommend that you remove these programs from your computer as well, because they are equally dangerous, since they share the same malicious traits with PriceMinus. At any rate, the infection is distributed via software bundles and is often packaged with InstallRex, Amonetize, and Vittalia installers. You can get your computer infected with this application if you download software from various piracy websites and torrent pages. The websites usually feature a fake download button that initiates the download of PriceMinus.
You should remove this infection from your PC because the advertisements displayed on it cannot be trusted. And who would want to be annoyed with irritating ads anyway? In any case, our research shows that the ads promoted by PriceMinus might very well be provided by cyber criminals who seek to extort money from you. Fake advertisements are likely to contain download links to malicious applications, such as Trojans, browser hijackers, spyware, keyloggers, and so on. Any one of these applications will cause you a lot of trouble. For example: keyloggers might help cyber criminals steal your banking credentials and other passwords.
Other malware might keep tabs on your browsing and search history. Trojans might be used to take over control of your computer entirely. The malware could lock your computer and demand a ransom, or it might be a bit more subtle and secretly steal your personal files. Some malicious apps might pose as legitimate utility tools and malware scanners, but in reality might download even more malware.
Therefore, we recommend that you delete PriceMinus from your PC either manually or by using an anti-malware scanner that will remove the infection altogether. Failure to remove this application might have undesirable consequences, so feel free to use the removal instructions provided below.
