Do you know what PriceLess is?
PriceLess is a potentially unwanted application classified as adware. This means that PriceLess has been created to help its developers generate financial profit by redirecting computer users to affiliated third-party websites. Such behavior is not illegal, but it raises a number of security concerns, and if you are a security-minded computer user, you will want to avoid it no matter what. The best way to ensure your system’s security is to remove PriceLess from your computer as soon as possible. Do not hesitate to terminate all the potential threats.
Our research lab team says that PriceLess is directly related to GoSave and PriceChopper adware applications. These programs are based on the MPlug engine, and they come forth offering you a price comparison service. In other words, when PriceLess gets installed on your computer, this program should help you compare goods and their prices on the Internet (at such websites as Best Buy, eBay, Amazon, etc.). Consequently, with PriceLess you should be able to save money when you shop online. Unfortunately, that is rather far from reality.PriceLess screenshot

For starters, users seldom download and install PriceLess onto their computers willingly. The website for this application is located at pricelessorsoft.com, but it is far more likely that users download together with other adware applications from a third-party file sharing website. Users may not even understand that they install a potentially unwanted application on their computers. This happens because they do not pay attention to every single installation step, and, as a result, PriceLess enters target computer.
You will notice that something is not right immediately because PriceLess displays commercial advertisements on every major browser (Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer). Constant pop-ups will slow down your web browsing process and expose you to unreliable content. The problem is that PriceLess does not check the third-party content that gets embedded into the aforementioned ads. This means that if cybercriminals want to exploit PriceLess for their content distribution, they will do it no questions asked.
Consequently, if you click a PriceLess ad with an outgoing link to a corrupted website, you could be exposed to a suspicious online marketing scheme or even worse – you could get infected with malware. Before any of this happens, remove PriceLess from your computer and reset your browser settings to default in order to terminate any unnecessary extensions.
After manual removal, scan the system with a powerful computer security application because you need to detect other potentially unwanted programs as well. Terminate all the potential threats immediately and protect your system from harm.
