DiscountSmasher Removal Manual

Adware-removalDiscountSmasher is promoted as a money-saving browser add-on that helps the users find deals, coupons and discounts as they shop online. Security researchers classify DiscountSmasher as adware with similar functionality as Extra Savings and Active Discount.

The DiscountSmasher add-on can be distributed via freeware installers and may keep track of the user’s online habits and search entries in order to provide related ad materials. The add-on may serve as a gateway to third-party advertisements on your computer.

DiscountSmasher’s Distribution

Mostly, adware programs tend to enter the system employing a stealth delivery technique – “bundling”. Additional installations can be distributed with free software available for downloads online. Computer users are advised always to opt for advanced installation. This way they can prevent the installation of any questionable apps, add-ons, and plug-ins.

How Does DiscountSmasher Affect Your System?

Once installed, CouponsMachine starts displaying a variety of third-party ads (pop-ups, banners, deals, coupons) in the user’s browser. Note that no adware program takes responsibility for the content of the web pages the user lands on, once he clicks on the advertisements. The user may be linked to corrupted websites and unknowingly invite various threats on his machine.

DiscountSmasher may also collect personally non-identifiable information (IP address, browsing habits, search entries) and use it to serve targeted advertisement.

The presence of the DiscountSmasher add-on on your PC may lead to poor browser and system performance.

How to Remove DiscountSmasher?

The DiscountSmasher browser add-on can be removed manually or with a trusted anti-spyware tool. Follow the instruction provided below to delete DiscountSmasher from your PC permanently.
