Do you know what GetLucky is?
It might really seem that GetLucky is a useful application, because it promises to find coupon codes for you and then automatically apply them to your order. In order words, it promises to help you save money while shopping online. Even though GetLucky might seem to be a beneficial program, we do not think that you should install it on your system. Have you already detected GetLucky on your system? We suggest getting rid of it as soon as you can because this program is definitely not trustworthy, and there is a very large possibility that it will start performing different activities which you will definitely not like. We will provide more information about this program further in this article, and we promise to tell what the easiest way to delete GetLucky is.
Our team of specialists have(I would go with plural here, since each one performs the tests separately; but I'm sure someone else could justify singular) tested GetLucky recently and noticed that it is a typical advertising-supported application. If you are not sure what this means, you should know that it is going to provide you with all kinds of commercial advertisements instead of acting in a beneficial way. It seems that it will show these ads with the help of extensions that will be added to your Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome browsers. These ads might seem interesting at first sight because they usually advertise various products and services; however, we still do not think that it is very smart to click on them. Specialists say that it might be very dangerous to do that because you might end up on some kind of web page that contains malicious software. You might, of course, not even know about that. It might be enough to click on a single link to infect your system with malware, so it is rather dangerous to keep GetLucky installed. It should be also noted that GetLucky will not only show commercial ads, but it might also collect information about your browsing activities in order to provide relevant advertisements.GetLucky screenshot

GetLucky can be found bundled even though it is possible to download it from its official website, downloadgetlucky.com. In most cases, it travels together with shareware and freeware, so do not be surprised if you detect it after you install a video streamer, torrent client, or PDF converter. Other undesirable programs travel in a bundle with all kinds of programs, too, so you might also encounter other suspicious applications if you do not take care of your PC’s safety. You can, of course, install a security application in order to prevent untrustworthy software from entering your system in the future.
This advertising-supported application does not have an uninstall in Control Panel, so it is not surprising at all that it cannot be removed like other programs.

If this is too difficult for you, use an automatic malware remover.
