Adware.Coupons

Adware.Coupons is an adware application, which was designed to deliver a variety of advertisements, affiliated with the adware, so as to ensure the optimal advertising of the products associated with Adware.Coupons.

Being a form of a malicious Trojan infection, Adware.Coupons will only represent a security risk to any computer is has infiltrated.

Adware.Coupons is a potentially unwanted adware program (PUP) that could be used to display various pop-up advertisements.

Adware.Coupons has been found to display the following characteristics:

* Creates a hidden window which can be used to run other programs without your knowledge
* Adds a Registry Key (RUN) to auto start Programs on system start up
* Adds a Registry Key (RUNONCE) to auto start Programs on system start up
* Found on infected systems and resists interrogation by security products
* Registered as a Dynamic Link Library File
* Created as a new Background Service on the machine
* Added as a Registry auto start to load Program on Boot up

What Adware.Coupons will do is load up with Internet Explorer, as a Browser Helper Object (BHO). This means that Adware.NewDotNet is a dynamic link library (DLL) that tends to run as soon as Internet Explorer is started.

BHO’s are usually installed covertly onto an unsuspecting computer system, so as to ensure the secretive gathering of information from the infected computer to a remote controller.

There are a few ways Adware.Coupons could have entered into a system, namely:
- The user’s operating system and Web browser security setting are too flexible and relaxed
- The user does not follow safe Internet and PC practices.

There are a few symptoms affiliated with an Adware infection, which are usually tell-tale signs of an infection:

1. PC is working slowly
2. New desktop shortcuts are displayed on the system
3. Annoying pop-up messages (in some cases) keep appearing on the PC
4. E-mails are being sent from your email address without your consent.

To ensure whether your system has been infected is recommended to perform a full computer system scan with a legitimate anti-spyware application.

The fact that Adware.Coupons can easily enter any PC system via security exploits and flaws, most times without the user’s interaction, means that it is that much easier for Adware.Coupons to enter the system and ensure the system’s security is immensely compromised.

The best way to deal with the threat of Adware.Coupons is to simply remove it from the affected PC system.

I would recommend that in order to avoid any unneeded risks of damage to your computer system, it is highly recommended to make use of a reliable and legitimate anti-spyware application, so as to remove Adware.Coupons and all its components from the infected computer system.
