SaveSense

SaveSense Description

SaveSense is adware that may display random pop-up ads, discount coupons, offers and deals via a pop-up box in well-known online shopping websites and social networking websites that computer users are visiting. SaveSense may insert an adware supported add-on, plug-in or extension for Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer and Google Chrome that may show pop-up, pop-under, banner, search, and in-text link interstitial ads. SaveSense may propagate and enter the PC throughout the installation of possibly unprotected free software downloads. SaveSense may commonly be embedded in the web browser when the computer user installs other free applications that may have added into their installation SaveSense. When the PC user installs free programs, he may also install SaveSense on the computer system. Once installed, SaveSense may highlight words on the websites that PC users are visiting changing them into hyperlinks. The links of SaveSense may be inserted within the text, and they may come with a double underline to separate them from usual links. When the PC user rolls the mouse over the link, the pop-up ads of SaveSense may emerge on the desktop of the computer system. If the PC user clicks on the pop-up links of SaveSense, the makers of the browser plug-in may make a profit from the clicks.
