PerfectCoupon, also known as Perfect Coupon and Ads by PerfectCoupon is a typical adware program generating numerous pop-ups and banners. Researchers have added PerfectCoupon to the list of potentially unwanted applications because its behavior may be quite intrusive. Once installed, the adware may compromise your user’s security priviliges. Even though it may promise to enhance online shopping and browsing in general, PerfectCoupon is likely to worsen your PC’s overall performance.
PerfectCoupon Distribution Technique
Similar to most adware apps, PerfectCoupon sneaks into the system via bundled downloads of freeware. Such downloads happen when users skip the custom installation option and as a result an additional tool is installed. Bundled downloads are a slippery slope. The unwanted app is actually mentioned in the EULA and thus users download it with their permission, even though they do not realize it. Always opting for advanced installation is the best way to put an end to the suspicious download practice.
