Do you know what Coupilation is?
JustPlugIt-based adware programs are very prevalent nowadays. Coupilation is one of them. Researchers have noticed that there are many users’ complaints that this program has appeared on different computers without permission. If you ever detect it on your system too, make sure that you erase this program as soon as you can. There is no point in keeping it because it will only cause you inconvenience by displaying ads on different websites opened with Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. These ads might even ruin a browsing session too because they are very irritating and you will see hundreds of them on your screen. You can get rid of all those advertisements rather easily – you just have to remove Coupilation from the system. Users of Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome might find this process rather difficult because it is not enough to delete Coupilation via Control Panel. In order to find out what else you have to do, you should read through this article.
All these pop-ups, banners, coupons, and other kinds of advertisements might seem perfectly decent at first sight. In addition, many users find them even interesting because they advertise various products and services, and it might even seem that some of these ads (e.g. coupons) can help you to save money. Even though ads look harmless, you should refrain yourself from clicking on them because you might infect your PC with malicious software very quickly. No, these ads do not contain malware themselves, but you might be redirected to an unreliable website after clicking on any of them. Coupilation is definitely not responsible for your safety. In most cases such applications claim that they are not responsible for any harm the use of this program can cause. Thus, there is a really huge possibility to encounter malicious software. Untrustworthy software might enter your system very quickly and you will probably not notice that.
Coupilation is distributed via InstallRex installers mainly. Of course, this advertising-supported application does not travel alone. Research carried out by our specialists has shown that this program usually comes bundled with other adware programs, potentially unwanted applications, browser hijackers, and other suspicious programs. Thus, if you have detected Coupilation on the system, there is a possibility that you have other untrustworthy programs too. It might be really difficult to detect them manually because they hide deep on the computer. Therefore, we suggest scanning the system with an automatic tool. The diagnostic scanner should be trustworthy.
As has been already mentioned, not all the users will be able to delete Coupilation easily. The luckiest ones are Internet Explorer users because they only have to remove this program via Control Panel in order not to see ads anymore. If you use other browsers, you will have to delete extensions from browsers too.
