PremierOpinion Removal Manual

PremierOpinion, also dubbed Premier Opinion, is an adware application developed by VoiceFve. Upon installation, PremierOpinion adds a background controller and, as a result, runs automatically. Its developers designed it to connect to the Internet and to add a Windows Firewall exception so that it runs undisrupted. Once running on the affected machine, the user may encounter numerous pop-up ads while surfing. Due to the potential risks clicking any of the suggested advertisements may cause, PremierOpinion’s removal is recommended.

PremierOpinion Distribution Method and Description

The adware is most likely bundled with free screensavers downloaded from the Web. Other free applications may also be packed with PremierOpinion. Opting out of the automatic installer is the best way to avoid bundling.

Users should be informed that PremierOpinion is developed by VoiceFive, a global market research company. VoiceFive is hired on behalf of other enterprises to monitor and assess the online behavior of users and trends. This means that the addition of tracking cookies is a quite possible technique employed to collect personally identifiable information, such as search queries, browsing histories, and IP addresses.

As a matter of fact, its developers have shared that the application ‘is part of an online market research community with over 2 million members worldwide.’
Moreover, some researchers believe that PremierOpinion is similar to another ad-sponsored application dubbed RelevantKnowledge. RelevantKnowledge has been detected as a spyware app that often comes bundled with freeware/ shareware, and may be threatening to the user.
