PriceChop is a browser add-on which is supposed to ease your browsing sessions by delivering special offers and deals to you. The browser add-on displays coupons and other pop-ups on shopping websites, including eBay, Amazon, Walmart, and many others. Sometime you may find that PriceChop provides you with advertisements that are not related to your search terms. It is so because PriceChop is an ad-supported program, and, thus, is categorized as adware.

If you have ever had to deal with adware, you probably know what it is important to remove it from the PC. PriceChop is not a dangerous infection but it may redirect you to insecure websites. How is that possible? The creators of the program are not responsible for third-parties’ actions, which means that you click on PriceChop ads at your own risk.

In order to do so, it is worth reviewing its privacy policy, ratings, and reviews; otherwise, you may experience a loss of money and personal data, the latter of which may be used in different situations.

PriceChop displays advertisements of different types, including web banners and pop-ups. PriceChop advertisements contain different labels, such as ‘By PriceChop’ and ‘PriceChop Ads’. These labels do not indicate that that the advertisements belong or are endorsed by PriceChop.

Similarly to the vast majority of adware programs, PriceChop is capable of monitoring you. Once installed, it starts collecting information about your browsing habits for the purpose of providing you with personalized advertisements, which you can prevent by removing the adware program the computer. PriceChop records your browsing behavior, i.e. your search terms, clicks, impressions, time spent on different websites, etc. The browser add-on can also read your browsing history and manager your browser extensions, themes, and other settings. You should not allow questionable programs make unauthorized changes on your computer because the loss of control over your software programs may have some adverse consequences.

    Pricechop isn't even in my list of programs. It comes under many different names, but I've got no idea what those names are and I don't want to accidentally delete something vital on my system.
    Not hugely helpful..!?

  6. Jim van der Kolk Aug 3, 2014

    I can't even remove that stupid pricechop add through my computer. Looks like I don't have I am not authorized to do so... Man, this app is annoying...

  7. Sibi George Aug 8, 2014

    I tried all those stuff apart from installing numerous anti-malware softwares.Still the extension in google chrome used to come back.

    Atlast succeeded after finding out it disables automatic updates in google and links the pricechop extension into our google account.

  8. satish kumar Aug 14, 2014

    search for "add-ons" on your browser and then in click on "add-ons" button
    Then search for "extensions" . click on "extensions" and remove the adwares..

    add-ons --> extensions -->

  9. Pissed Aug 15, 2014

    None of this stuff works. No matter what I do it comes back and it;s ***** *****. Did any of you even try your solutions?

  10. Got dem feels Aug 19, 2014

    What I did to remove priCechop from my PC,
    First I went to where Pricechop said it was installed on my computer,
    Try looking in the Google Crome extension folder,
    E.G. C:\Users\HomeGroupUser$\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions\
    and then delete all the files apart from the .html file

  11. Blessed person Aug 21, 2014

    Simple! Just uninstall it on Control Panel and then use your antivirus to search the folder ProgramData (it is hidden). If catches the virus good, if not i don't have a solution for now.

  12. FargoBond Aug 22, 2014

    This said solution does not work

  13. GRRAnnoyed Aug 22, 2014

    satish kumar's solution seems to be working so far. I have uninstalled this app, restarted and all. Removing the Add-on seems to help. I guess we will see in about 24 hours if it keeps it gone.

  14. KMO Aug 30, 2014

    Its worse than it was before!

  15. AC Aug 30, 2014

    U can do as the 10th comment said, it works for me. Just do what he explains, close chrome browser, then reopen, its gone!! :)

  16. RyZal Sep 3, 2014

    Yes..10th comment the best way to remove it. You all can try...Thanx

  17. PSingh Sep 5, 2014

    I had all of these problems you people are having now, the best way is to go into your my computer, go onto your username and go into:
    C:\Users\Jsmith\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions

    Find the extensions there and delete them from there,
    if you are unsure which ones are which, the file names are listed in chrome under the extensions tab. hope this helps!

  18. Karen Sep 6, 2014

    When I go to extensions it will not let me disable it. I have IE with Windows 8.1.

    This is ridi*****us!

  19. Patty Sep 7, 2014

    C:\Users\*your microsoft username*\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions\

    put in your microsoft username and it will show you your internet extensions for chrome. Uninstalled the program but still got them. Finally dug this up after going into developer mode on Chrome. Delete everything in your extension folder. This worked for me. If you delete an extension on accident, it's fine. You can always redownload that.

  20. cheva Sep 9, 2014

    It wont let me uninstall the program...and it's named ProiceCChhop for some reason...

  21. Herschel Sep 11, 2014

    ^^Mine was named Perricechop. Probably so it's harder to track down.

  22. Herschel Sep 11, 2014

    There are two file paths in the comments above I checked and found multiple suspicious folders titled with a bunch of gibberish.

    C:\Users\HomeGroupUser$\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions

    C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions (where it says "Username" in this second one, replace with your Windows username)

  23. Herschel Sep 11, 2014

    (contd.) Delete all suspicious folders in both directories. To play it safe, I would recommend deleting everything that's in there. As another user said, you can always re-download extensions that were previously safe (prior to infection).

  24. Herschel Sep 11, 2014

    Question for some of the more experienced users on here:

    When I back out of the "Extensions" folder to the "Default" directory, I see two similar folders above the "Extensions" folder: "Extension Rules" and "Extension State." Should I be worried about any of the files in these folders? I am not sure of their purposes and how exactly they operate.

  25. DaveP Sep 11, 2014

    I just tried Herschel's, and it works! Namely, I shut down and restarted Chrome and undesired extensions are not activated any more (looking at Settings->Extensions).
    Thank you!

  26. Carol M Sep 11, 2014





    C:\Users\HomeGroupUser$\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions\
    and then delete all the files apart from the .html file

  27. FUck Norton Sep 18, 2014

    when you go to C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions on your way there you wuill find a bunch of others. I found beside Chrome the following:

    Chromatic Browser

    Basically anything that isnt Chrome you can delete entirely.

    Make sure you only have Chrome then after you click that delete all the files after extensions and when you open up chrome again you should be fine.

  28. Grim Oct 4, 2014

    Confirmed after trying everything removing it from directory get it out.

    A tip - click the check box top right in the extension page and it would show you the path for each addon, just browse to the path and delete the folder for that addon.

  29. Grim Oct 4, 2014

    oh and be show to turn on view hidden files and folders or you may not see the appdata folder

  30. Lordsky Oct 9, 2014

    C:\Users\_____\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions
    (Type %appdata% in startmenu)
    delete everything inside \extensions

  31. afc Oct 29, 2014

    I think its gone now. Tried most of the above. All failed to stop it coming back except this i.e. use developer mode on the chrome extensions tab and that showed where the extension was being loaded from. I deleted that folder and the extension hasn't come back. I hope!

  32. Bjornulf Dec 7, 2014

    In MY case, I did like this page told me: PriceChop extension was located in c:\ProgramData\fsdgfadsdfgdsafhsdfsd and I just deleted that catalog, and voila its gone!

  33. Fuck this shit Jan 3, 2015

    It made some weird other programs come on my computer. YouTurn, OverTask, and another one are adware too.

  34. Fuck sake Mar 5, 2015

    If you go into the oc and under one of the Program things you can also remove it from there. I don't know what it does, but it might help with removing the virus...
