PricePeep Description

PricePeep is an adware application that shows its own ads on eBay, Amazon and other websites. These advertisements will be illustrated as boxes carrying various coupons that are available or as underlined keywords, which when clicked will display an advertisement that declares it is brought to the computer user by PricePeep. PricePeep can be installed on the affected computer by another application that had bundled in its installer the PricePeep adware. Program installers of some apps include optional installs, such as the particular PricePeep. Internet users should be very careful what they agree to install. They should always select for the custom installation and deselect anything that is not known, especially optional programs that they never wanted to download and install on their computer systems.

Aliases: suspected of Trojan.Downloader.gen.h [VBA32] and TROJ_GEN.F47V0719 [TrendMicro-HouseCall].
