PUP.ProShopper Description

PUP.ProShopper is a Web browser toolbar that is advertised as a way for PC users to find special deals, coupons and prices online. However, the main purpose of PUP.ProShopper is to deliver numerous unsolicited advertisements to the affected PC, which will benefit its creators with monetary gain. Because of this, PC security analysts classify PUP.ProShopper as a Potentially Unwanted Program, specifically as an adware, due to the fact that PUP.ProShopper is designed to deliver advertisements and expose computer users to marketing material. If PUP.ProShopper is installed on your computer, PC security researchers strongly advise removing PUP.ProShopper from the affected PC with the help of a reliable security program. In most cases, PUP.ProShopper may be uninstalled using normal removal methods. However, since PUP.ProShopper advertisements may promote known misleading strategies or expose computers to more threatening types of unwanted components, malware researchers strongly advise scanning the affected PC with a security application that is fully up-to-date as part of the PUP.ProShopper removal procedure.

Been Careful When Installing New Software Will Avoid the Unwanted Installation of PUPs

Although there are many cases in which computer users install PUP.ProShopper willingly, often tricked by PUP.ProShopper's misleading advertising strategies, in most cases PUP.ProShopper is installed automatically. This may be accomplished in various ways. PUP.ProShopper can be delivered using threat distribution methods, often installed by a threat or through the use of social engineering, corrupted email attachments or attack websites. However, the most common way of delivering PUP.ProShopper to an affected computer is by bundling PUP.ProShopper with free software distributed on dubious websites. During the installation process, the option to opt out of installing PUP.ProShopper may be present. However, computer users may overlook it or skip it due to inattentiveness. Whenever you install new software, PC security analysts advise using a custom installation to make sure that the components being installed are only the ones that are necessary.
