Do you know what NextCoup is?
NextCoup is an adware application that promises to help you save money on your purchases online. It would be great if you could buy your favorite goods at an optimal price, but NextCoup is not the program that could help you with that. In reality, this application exposes you to potential security threats by displaying commercial third-party advertisements. Therefore, if you are a security-minded user, you have to remove NextCoup as soon as possible. Take note that there might be other similar applications installed on your PC as adware apps seldom come alone.
You might not notice when or how NextCoup enters your computer, but you will know something is off when the program starts running. After all, NextCoup collects information on what you search for online and which websites you visit behind your back, and when it has enough data collected, it generates a flow of commercial advertisements according to the information it has. NextCoup ads are usually customized according to your likes and preferences as it increases the possibility of you clicking them. Needless to say, that you have to refrain from clicking those ads because you could be redirected to malware-related websites.NextCoup screenshot

NextCoup is obviously not a malware infection, and it even has an official homepage at nextcoup.info. However, the direct download link does not work on the website. It is not surprising because there is an entire list of similar adware applications (like DownSave, AllCheapPrice, CoupExtension, etc.), and they all share the same features. Adware programs from this group travel bundled with DomalQ installer that promotes fake Flash and Java plug-ins. They also randomize their name upon the installation, and NextCoup is not an exception. When this program adds an extension to your web browser (Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome or Internet Explorer), it generates its name at random, and it turns out to be something like NextCioup, NaeXTCoup, NextCOuiP, etc.
It is obvious that you must remove NextCoup from your browser and your computer because this program is useless. In fact, it might get exploited by malevolent third parties to promote corrupted content. NextCoup does not review what kind of links get embedded into its ads, so you click them at your own risk – if you are not careful enough, you might be exposed to malware distribution network.
Uninstall NextCoup right now and protect your computer from harm. You should scan your system with a legitimate computer security tool in search for other unwanted applications. Since NextCoup comes bundled with freeware, you are bound to have more than just one potentially harmful program on board. Do all you can to secure your PC’s safety.
