Do you know what ShopperReports is?
If you have pop-ups appear on your web browser and they are distributed by ShopperReports, then you have a very old adware application still running on your PC. It is an old product and it is no longer available for download at the official sources. The fact that it no longer functions properly means that you obviously need to remove ShopperReports from your computer. The application merely takes up space and does not do any good. In fact, you should get rid of all applications that are not useful anymore.
The original purpose of ShopperReports was to compare prices online at various online shopping malls. The users were offered to look for what they want on shopping or travel websites, then the application would search for similar queries on over a thousand other web pages, and eventually ShopperReports would help you purchase something at an optimal price. If that is really the case, ShopperReports would definitely be a useful application, but in reality this application was closely related to online marketing schemes that were devised in order to generate financial profit.
Granted, ShopperReports is not a virus. It is a potentially unwanted application that users most often would install it onto their computers themselves. The official website at shopperreports.com does not work anymore, however. Security research experts also suggest that there are not working samples of ShopperReports as well. Hence, if you still see this application on the list of installed programs via Control Panel, you should really uninstall it ASAP.
The main problem with ShopperReports was that this application would sporadically display pop-up advertisements when you would browse the web. Even though back when the program was still functional it was possible to download it from the official website, most of the time ShopperReports came bundled with freeware and adware. It means that there might have been more than just one potentially unwanted program installed on your PC.
What is more, since ShopperReports is not a virus users usually had an option NOT to install it onto their computer. However, most of the time users are too impatient to read all the installation steps, so if one skips some important steps ShopperReports just gets installed onto the PC automatically.
As it has been mentioned previously, it is not hard to remove ShopperReports. Simply uninstall it via Control Panel. However, adware programs seldom travel alone, so it would be a good idea to check for other freeware applications by scanning the system with SpyHunter free scanner. If any potentially unwanted applications are found, remove them from the PC as well.
