pop-ups-removalPerfectCoupon, 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.

PerfectCoupon Description and Behavior

When the term ‘adware’ is used in the malware reference frame, it may open the door to various malicious threats. Being an adware application developed by a third-party organization, PerfectCoupon fits the description and may pose issues to the infected system. On one hand, it may alter the Windows start-up settings and run every time the system starts. On the other, it may add tracking cookies to the browser and harvest personally identifiable information.
Experts also recommend not clicking any of the ads displayed by PerfectCoupon. Doing so may redirect users to compromised web pages where Trojans and viruses are generally distributed.

PerfectCoupon Removal

To avoid further PC problems, PerfectCoupon’s removal is recommended. It can be done in two ways – manually and automatically. Follow the steps below to do either.
Also, always remember that the safest way to prevent both adware and malware infiltration is choosing custom installation, and downloading from secure websites.
