Generous Deal

As far as Generous Deal is concerned, it neither reviews the websites it promotes nor does it take any responsibility for the possible risks you could receive while using the application. You might think that the application’s displayed ads are unique or special for its users only, but it would be more accurate if you describe it as a pile of various shopping offers from third-party web pages. You should know that the ads from third-parties could redirect you to unreliable and potentially harmful sites. Although Generous Deal might sound like a program created to help users save their money, we have no doubt that the program’s creators will receive much more from it as they get advertising revenue for each click. If you do not want to be a part of this scheme, you could get rid of the application, and to assist you we will provide removal instructions below the article.

Since the application was created to display various ads and shopping offers, it is categorized as adware. Like other programs that fall under the same classification, Generous Deal is spread with the so-called bundled downloads through various file-sharing web pages. Probably, even if you do not know how it is called, you have experienced it before. Bundled programs are applications that show up on particular software’s setup wizard as the additional ones. Meaning, it is only suggested to you, and it is possible to deselect it if you do not want it on your system. Usually, users either do not read any given information while installing or they accept it without realizing it, due to the misleading form (e.g. suggestions in small font) it could be displayed in the setup.

When the adware is installed, it should create folders in these directories: C:\Users\{unique user name}\AppData\Local\Temp and C:\Program Files. If you check Generous Deal files, you can see that Systems Reddick signed their digital signature, but it does not tell us anything because, with no other information on the Internet, the publisher remains unknown. Nonetheless, we could not say that the program is much different from other adware applications as it is very similar to its previous clones such as Deals Avenue, Sale Charger, Roaming Rate. Moreover, it is compatible only with two browsers: Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox, so if you do have any other browsers installed, their settings should not be changed. The adware alters your browsers by adding an extension, which is responsible for the ads, displayed while surfing the Internet.

As you open your browser, you could receive full window ads that would open on their own although the main ads will show up in your search results or while visiting particular websites. Mainly, they should offer purchasing various products, inform you of sales or show you better deals for the objects you are looking to buy. It might seem like a useful tool, but, on the other hand, while clicking on such advertisements you could be redirected to questionable third-party websites that may be harmful to your system too. For example, they could advertise potentially unwanted programs, browser hijackers or other adware applications so you might install more unreliable software. Also, we cannot be one hundred percent sure, but some of the third-party sites might contain malware. Therefore, if you enter such website, your computer could get infected. Furthermore, the ads can be annoying too, especially when it displays shopping offers or shows websites that you are not interested in.

Provided you want to secure your computer, it would be best to delete the application as it might display unreliable web pages. It is always advisable to avoid any suspicious ads, and if you occasionally shop online, you should purchase only from trusted sellers. Removing the program could seem a little bit confusing for inexperienced users, but if you follow our step by step instructions you should be okay. Also, you could remove Generous Deal automatically with a legitimate security tool that would take care of other possible threats too.
