Shopping Chip

Shopping Chip is an unreliable browser plugin which travels bundled with invisible adware programs. This is why as soon as you install this application onto your Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers they are flooded with all sorts of unreliable and extremely suspicious pop-up adverts. Have you discovered advertisements placed within the sites you visit? Have you found them opened in new tabs or windows? All of this could have been withheld if you did not install the truly suspicious plugin onto your browsers. Luckily, there is a way to delete Shopping Chip and remove programs which are linked to it. Please continue reading the report to learn all you need to know about the removal processes.

The suspicious Shopping Chip is considered to be a browser helper object on Internet Explorer and an extension on Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox browsers. The application can access data on the websites you visit, record your browsing activity and manage extensions. All of this basically means that the developers of the suspicious add-on can track information related to your online activity so that more interesting and personal advertisements would be produced. The collected data could reveal the language you use, your geographical location and the information you are interested in. Do you know how all of the advertisements are supported?

Together with the tremendously suspicious plugin come such adware programs as ad.yieldmanager, Saveshare and searchrocket.info. Even though you may be completely oblivious to the existence of these applications, they are responsible for the disturbing advertisements, pop-up offers, prize-draws and online surveys which are flooding the browsers. Needless to say, we do not recommend clicking on any pop-ups because they could be used to drop information-stealing tracking cookies, redirect you to unfamiliar websites or simply push you into purchasing absolutely bogus/worthless products.

Even though you can use the manual removal instructions below to have Shopping Chip deleted from the computer, they might be helpless when it comes to the aforementioned adware programs. Therefore, if you have already performed the removal steps below we strongly recommend installing reliable Windows security software to have the rest of the threats deleted automatically. You should at least scan the PC with a reliable malware scanner if you are not convinced about the necessary installation of automatic malware removal software.
