If you are reading this then it’s likely that your computer has become the target of the malicious program known as Shopper Pro. It operates like an Adware – that is it creates unwanted online advertisements and displays them into your internet browser as you use it. These Ads are very aggressive and can be incredibly frustrating in times – especially if they contain sound. They can fill up a great deal of your screen space and most people find them incredibly annoying. The Ads cannot be stopped or turned off – the only way to get rid of them is to remove Shopper Pro altogether from your computer.
You out to remove Shopper Pro as soon as possible – your PC is in danger
At the very least Shopper Pro slows down your computer. Your CPU has to download the data for the Ads and then render them in addition to the normal content you want to see. This strain increases as you load more tabs simultaneously and older computers and slow internet users can experience extreme delays, non-responsiveness crashes and more.
The Ads loaded by Shopper Pro often contain fraudulent content. Well-known and trusted online shops prefer to advertise through legitimate channels and Shopper Pro is definitely not one. If you try to click on the Ads you might find yourself in all kinds of fraud and scam sites that are after your wallet. Even even you are redirected to a shop you trust you might still be the victim of a phishing scam – the site you are on may look exactly like the one you know and have very similar url, but if you try to log-on your account name and password will be recorded by the hackers and used to long in into the real site with full access to your billing information and more.
Shopper Pro has another nasty feature attached to it – it may try to install viruses or bloatware applications on your computer. Usually this is done through the ruse of some non-existing problem presented to you via an Ad that looks exactly like a system message. If you randomly begin to see pop-up messages informing you that you have a problem and need to install any of the following items DON’T DO IT. It’s likely a trick played on you by Shopper Pro.
- Missing plug-ins
- Required video players/codes in order to see some media file
- Java/Flash updates
- Online scanner who scanned your computer for free and found viruses/errors/HDD problems
