Random adware and freeware applications have a tendency to travel in packs, so if you happen to have Coupon Navigator on your computer, then the chances are that you have many other unwanted applications on-board, too. Coupon Navigator is your regular adware program that is created supposedly to help you find out more about the best shopping offers online. However, computer security experts maintain that you should remove Coupon Navigator from your computer as this application could easily expose you to malicious content, and, in the worst-case scenario, this might result in a serious computer infection. Needless to say, any user would want to avoid that.
Our research indicates that it should be possible to download the program from couponnavigator.com which happens to be the official website for this application. Nevertheless, it is very unlikely that users stumble upon this program and download it willingly. It is far more likely to get infected with adware when it gets distributed in software bundles. For instance, we have noticed that Coupon Navigator may come bundled with other programs from freeware websites and various download offers. If that were not enough, downloading the application directly is also a risky matter because the official installer for this program bundles Opera Browser, Amigo, Sweet-page.com, MyPCBackup, and other additional programs. While Opera Browser is a reliable web browser, such programs like MyPCBackup or Sweet-page.com definitely should not be allowed to access your PC.
Once Coupon Navigator gets installed on your computer, it modifies the registry in a way that allows that allows the application to load automatically. When the program starts, it generates a window that loads a number of coupon sites, for example, savings-galleria.com, freebiefrenzy.com, and many others. The question is whether you can really trust those sites as they are bound to display third-party advertisements. Needless to say, Coupon Navigator cannot check whether the third-party content is safe or not. On the top of that, this program can also launch a new browser window with various commercial offers that is both annoying and potentially dangerous.
The dangerous part arises from the fact that third parties could easily make use of the program’s Coupon Navigator advertising network to distribute their content. There is no saying what could happen if cyber criminals decide to exploit this adware program. It is clear that it would result in some severe computer security issues, and therefore, you have to make sure that this never happens by removing Coupon Navigator today.
Luckily, you should not face any troubles as you delete this application from your computer. You can get rid of Coupon Navigator by uninstalling it via Control Panel, but we always remind users that manual removal may not be enough to get rid of all the potential threats. The problem is that users seldom know which program may cause them serious trouble.
Thus, scan your computer with the SpyHunter free scanner and then terminate the potentially harmful applications (if any) automatically. An automated software removal with a licensed antispyware tool is the most efficient way to maintain your system’s security.
