Anyone would want to save money when they shop online. Who wouldn’t? Unfortunately, there are a lot of applications out there that try to make use of that. Cash Reminder is just one of the many adware programs that look like useful shopping assistants while in fact they were created to generate financial profit for its developers and other associated third parties. It would be for the best to remove Cash Reminder because there is no telling what might happen if this program gets exploited by cyber criminals. Adware apps may not be ferocious system threats, but just like any tool out there, if someone uses it for the wrong purpose, it might become your worst nightmare.
This program has a working homepage that you can access at related.deals. Nevertheless, we could not find the download button on the site, and it is far more likely that this application travels in software bundles. It means that Cash Reminder has entered your computer with a list of other unwanted applications, and you have not even noticed that. It usually happens when users download freeware willingly or accidentally. Freeware downloads often are initiated when users click fake download buttons on file-sharing websites. Not to mention that quite often users fail to check all the steps in the installation wizard, and then the likes of Cash Reminder get installed on the target system.
Unlike most of the other adware applications, Cash Reminder does not install any extension on your browser to collect the information on your web browsing habits. It will run several processes in the background of your system to perform its functions. The service that belongs to this application is called CashReminder.exe, and you can easily find it in the list of running processes via the Windows Task Manager. Although, perhaps you won’t even need to go through the list of processes because you will know that something is wrong when you will be flooded with annoying pop-ups.
The official website says that with Cash Reminder you can “receive a percentage of all purchases made at our partner stores, directly into your bank account.” Sounds nice, doesn’t it? Unfortunately, that is very far from the truth because the only reason Cash Reminder enters your computer is to make money for its own creators. It does not care whether you will be able to save up when you shop online or not. Even worse: This program does not check whether the content embedded in its ads is 100% reliable.
Our problem with such programs like Cash Reminder is that they are too vulnerable to third-party exploitation. Thus, even if the application does not have such an intention, it might accidentally lead you to dangerous websites that promote or distribute malware. We would like to point out that nothing would happen if you did not click any of the Cash Reminder ads, but the best way to keep this temptation at bay is to delete the program for good.
Open your Control Panel and uninstall Cash Reminder manually. It should not be much of a problem, but if you suspect that there might be more undesirable programs on-board (and there most probably are), you should scan your PC with the SpyHunter free scanner to be on the safe side. Do not hesitate to take all the measures necessary to safeguard your PC against harmful intruders.
