How Did FunToCoupWith Get Installed on My PC?

The thing with adware programs is that they are rarely installed by users willingly. In most cases, adware infiltrates systems using bundled downloads. This means that it is attached to installers of free applications. This allows them to get installed without being noticed. There is an easy way to prevent this though. Just be sure to read carefully through all of the installation steps. Also, select the Advanced/Custom installation option. This way, you will be presented with the additional software and you will have the opportunity to decline its installation.

What Does FunToCoupWith Do?

Immediately after it has been installed on your computer, FunToCoupWith will start presenting various advertisements. It will literally flood your browser with these. It will present pop-ups, banners, as well as other types of ads. And these will appear regardless of whether you are using Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, or Google Chrome. Furthermore, FunToCoupWith can track your online activities. This will allow it to present ads that are relevant to the interests of each specific user. This is done so that you can click on more ads. Keep in mind that this information can be shared with the advertisers.

Why Is FunToCoupWith Unwanted?

The problem with FunToCoupWith is that it can present users with misleading ads. Even the ones that are related to your interests can transfer you to unreliable or harmful websites. You see, adware programs are infamous for being easily exploitable, and cyber criminals do not need to be asked twice to take advantage of that. So some ads may take you to websites that are managed by cyber criminals. In case this happens, there are two likely scenarios: either a phishing scam will be attempted or your PC will become a target for malware attacks. In the first instance, the website will most likely claim that you have won some sort of prize and ask you to disclose your sensitive details. In the second one, your PC will most likely be infected. After that, you can experience problems with operating it. Also, your personal and financial information is likely to be stolen.

How to Remove FunToCoupWith

As you can see, FunToCoupWith is no fun at all. Keeping this program on your PC will expose it to numerous virtual risks. Immediately removing it from your computer is your best option. FunToCoupWith has one good quality: it can be easily uninstalled. All it takes is to go to Control Panel, open the list of applications, find it, and uninstall it. Keep in mind that this may be insufficient to ensure that your PC is safe. More adware programs may have also snuck on your PC. There is even a possibility that some malware has managed to infiltrate it. This is why it is recommended that you have a powerful AV program at your disposal. It will get rid of all unwanted software and at the same time make sure that your PC is never compromised again.
