Do you know what Coupextensionz is?
Coupextensionz is an adware application that is compatible with all major browsers on the market: Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer. This application will collect data on your web browsing habits, and it will display annoying commercial advertisements. These advertisements will be tailored according to your web browsing habits. Coupextensionz is not a malicious computer infection, but you should not keep it on your system. The best way to deal with this issue to at hand is to remove Coupextensionz from your computer at once, following the instructions provided below this description.
Our research team says that the Coupextensionz is identical to CoupExtension that has been analyzed before several months ago. It would not be surprising because these adware applications belong to the semi-random name adware family. This means that Coupextensionz and CoupExtension is practically the same program and they simply refer to different variations that appear on separate computers. In other words, the behavioral patterns and the distribution methods are the same.
Coupextensionzs used to have an official homepage at coupextension.info, but our tests show that the website is currently down, so there is no way this application would spread directly. This means that the Coupextensionz gets distributed bundled freeware applications. Like most of the adware apps from the same group (including BrickStrengthener, Foxwebber, Giftssoft, etc.), Coupextensionz also gets distributed via InsallRex, Vittalia, and Amonetize installers.
Most of the time, users initiate freeware downloads, when they click fake download buttons on torrent and p2p websites. Perhaps you were aiming for a completely different program, and you had no idea Coupextensionz would come along. Nevertheless, when this application enters your computer, it adds extensions to your browser and starts monitoring your web browsing history.
As mentioned above, Coupextensionz displays coupons and discount offers that are supposed to help you save money whenever you shop online. Unfortunately, that is not going to happen because Coupextensionz does not provide reliable content. The application needs to outsource the ad content, and it does not check whether it is safe or not.
If Coupextensionz gets exploited by malevolent third party, you will soon land on a suspicious website that distributes adware and, in the most extreme cases, even malware. Needless to say, you need to avoid such consequences by removing Coupextensionz from the system immediately.
After manual removal, scan your computer with the SpyHunter free scanner. You are bound to have more unwanted applications on your system, so you need to detect and delete them all as well. Do all it takes to protect your system from harm.
