Do you know what LookaDeal is?
LookaDeal is a program that may promise you that it will find the best shopping deals. Unfortunately, the app cannot fulfill its promises and meet your expectations because it has been created by people who do not have your best interests in mind. Analysts working in our internal lab tell us that this advertisement-supported program is linked to the Lyrics family of adware, and it is well known because of RebateRobot, Betteronlinedeals, Surfshield, and other suspicious applications that you must remove. Needless to say, you must delete LookaDeal from your browsers as well. If you do not remove the infection, you may become a victim of cyber-criminal activity. Learn more by reading our report.
It has been shown by our researchers that LookaDeal usually travels bundled with third-party programs. This is not that surprising, considering that the installer on the official website lookadeal.net is inactive, and that other adware from the Lyrics family is distributed in the same way. Overall, it is highly unlikely that users would visit the site, considering that it does not have a good reputation. Unfortunately, unreliable companies do not have any trouble distributing unreliable software, because there are plenty of parties who are willing to do this for a little bit of money. LookaDeal could be attached to both legitimate and malicious applications, which is why, in some cases, the removal process is much more complicated. All in all, if LookaDeal removal troubles you, there is no doubt that you should inspect the PC for other unreliable programs that may have to be deleted as well.LookaDeal screenshot
