SuperCouponPro Toolbar is one of those browser plug-ins that try to make it seem as though they can somehow enhance your web browsing experience. At times, it might seem that the program is the real deal, and with it, you can customize your browse according to your needs, but our security experts are not so sure about that. They say that if you want to protect your computer and your personal information from malicious exploitation, you should remove SuperCouponPro Toolbar for good. This toolbar may be associated with several third parties that could expose you to corrupted content, and it might automatically lead to a malware infection.
We are not too surprised by this toolbar because we have witnessed similar applications taking over browsers before. SuperCouponPro Toolbar belongs to the Mindspark Toolbar family, and so it is very similar to EasyWeatherAlert Toolbar, GetCouponsFast Toolbar, SoccerInferno, and many other applications you most definitely could live without. The thing all Mindspark applications have in common is that they do have a direct distribution source. In other words, with a direct download link out in the open, it is practically impossible to categorize this program as a malicious infection. So instead, we place under the potentially unwanted program’s umbrella.
You might be wondering why we say SuperCouponPro Toolbar has a direct download link if you do not remember having downloaded this app yourself. Well, the official website does exist, and you can even access it via supercouponpro.com. At the site, you will see a lot of promotional lines that would say this toolbar is one of your best bets if you want to save money when you shop online. However, no matter how we look at it, the chances of downloading the app from the official site are really low. So how did the toolbar manage to enter your PC in the first place?
Needless to say, the official homepage is just one of the many distribution sources used by this program. It is far more like that SuperCouponPro Toolbar will come bundled with freeware applications. Freeware packages are often hosted on third-party file-sharing pages that do not review the files they offer. As a result, user can never know whether the installer they download is absolutely safe. It would be a good idea to scan the downloaded installer with a security tool; just to be sure it does not carry any malicious applications. And when you run the installer, be sure to read the steps one by one because you might be able to deselect unwanted applications.
Most of the time, on the other hand, users just skip the steps to be done with the installation as soon as possible. Consequently, the likes of SuperCouponPro Toolbar end up getting installed on your PC, and you experience various unexpected modifications. For instance, this toolbar installs a tool that modifies your homepage and the new tab settings on your default browser. Once that happens, the SuperCouponPro Toolbar’s search engine serves are your homepage, and it comes with several utilities. These utilities promise to provide you with a list of the latest deals in various online stores, find various coupon offers and free giveaways. So, in a sense, it looks like a win-win situation, but the problem is that the toolbar cannot guarantee you will always be redirected to safe third-party websites.
There is always a chance that some of the displayed coupons could be embedded with outgoing links that lead to unfamiliar and even dangerous websites. We cannot rule out the possibility that this program could be exploited by cyber criminals, too. So while SuperCouponPro Toolbar is not your usual security threat, it can still pose certain security risks you should not overlook.
