Do you know what Sale Planet is?
Although you might consider Sale Planet a unique piece of software, we know that it has many clones, including Constant Fun, Astro Find, and Computer Pal. All of these ad-supported programs belong to the SuperWeb family, and they have almost identical-looking download pages. Of course, these download pages are irrelevant because they are not active and because most computer users download this adware using third-party installers. In fact, most users are unaware of these websites altogether. Nevertheless, even if you have installed this adware unknowingly, it should not take long for you to uncover it because the ads it injects are identified with tags, such as "Provided by Sale Planet." If ads show up without identification, it is possible that they are injected by other ad-supported programs, and you need to inspect them as well. Keep in mind that ad-supported programs are different. While Sale Planet is primarily used as an advertising platform, other ad-supported programs can be used to collect personal data or even directly expose you to malicious installers and devious scams.Sale Planet screenshot

In non-techie terms:
Sale Planet promises to help you save money, and who would pass an opportunity to save money? The thing is that this advertising-supported program is highly unlikely to show you any useful or beneficial deals, and its promises are simply meant to lure you in. If you install this program, it will use your browsing history to select attractive offers served by remote adware servers. As you might know, these servers can support any advertisers, including malicious parties, which is why interacting with the ads injected by this program can be very dangerous. If you agree that it is best to remove this adware from your browsers and your operating system, we suggest using the guide above. Of course, it is best to use automated malware removal software if multiple threats have corrupted your PC simultaneously.
