  • I followed all of these steps, but the “brought by shopping deals” wasn’t installed anywhere. What’s the next step? Where else could it be hiding?

    • Are you using Google Chrome? If the answer is yes, do the following: download an application called “Chrome Apps & Extensions Developer Tool”. It’s free and it’s from the Google App Store (meaning it’s 100% safe), so you shouldn’t hesitate.

      Run the app, it should be on your desktop, go to the Extensions Tab, and see if Ads by FreezeTheApp is in the unpacked extensions. If so, uninstall it from there. Update me if this worked 🙂

        • Hello Tina,
          Did you perform all steps as outlined by us? Including the “Chrome Apps & Extensions Developer Tool” advice? Give us some details and we will try to help you.

  • In the case of my girlfriend’s laptop, this piece of shit was hiding in the “HKEY_CURRENT_USER—-Software—–Random numbers” directory. After I removed manually this random number directory and restarted Windows, I got rid of this problem at last. Thanks for this great and helpful article!

  • Hi,

    Did you try looking at the registry – Step 5 of the guide? Its possible that the entries for the virus are written under the name of the creator or in the association lines found in HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesAssociations

    Please let me know if that works for you!

  • Hi again,

    You can try resetting the Chrome user. Go to settings -> Users. Create a new use from Add New User, then delete the old one.

    Please let me know how it goes.
