Do you know what BrowserAShop is?
While you are at it, you should also look for other potentially unwanted programs that might be hiding in your system. It is impossible to download and install BrowserAShop individually because the program does not have a working homepage. Thus, it is obvious that BrowserAShop gets distributed in software packages via the InstallRex, Vittalia, and Amonetize installers. We can give you the names of the third-party installers responsible for BrowserAShop’s distribution this fast, because the application is from the Multiplug adware family, and all applications from this group are distributed in the same manner. Thus, in order to avoid installing BrowserAShop, you should stay away from file sharing and torrent websites that have multiple download buttons (most of which are most definitely fake).
Our research team says that BrowserAShop is very similar to LuckyCoupon, TicTacCoupon, SaveNShop, SaveON, so we know what to expect from this application. Basically, when you install this program on your computer BrowserAShop will add a plug-in to your browser that will start tracking what websites you visit and what keywords you enter onto your search engine. Later on, BrowserAShop will display commercial advertisements that will pop up into your screen whenever you access popular online stores. The application will try to make you think that its ads can help you purchase something at a lower price, but that is hardly the case.
BrowserAShop ads are often embedded with third-party links that lead to unfamiliar websites. The point is that BrowserAShop does not review what kind of content gets embedded into its ads, so if malevolent third parties decide to make use of this application to promote their unreliable material, quite soon you could end up getting redirected to a website that is part of an online marketing scam or even worse – malware distribution network.
Protect yourself and your computer from any potential threats by removing BrowserAShop as soon as possible. It is possible to uninstall the program via Control Panel, but you should not forget about other potential risks and adware components that could be running on your PC. The best way to terminate them would be investing in a legitimate antispyware tool.
