Loffinam Description

Type: Adware

Loffinam is adware that may display annoying pop-up advertisements when PC users are visiting online shopping websites. Loffinam may be added on Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome web browsers. Typically, anti-virus programs may not be able to identify Loffinam as a harmful program because it may also be classified as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). Loffinam may commonly propagate packed with free software, such as codecs, free video file converters and similar apps. When the computer user decides to install a free program, it may involve extra toolbars, browser plug-ins, extensions and add-ons inserted in the installation wizard. These extra apps may be marked as optional software, but if the PC user does not uncheck a box to insert them, he will end up confronting undesired system alterations on the computer system.
