‘Ads by Shoppr’ – in case you see an annoying pop-up window with this caption on it, you can be almost sure that you may have an adware PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program) on your computer. Such unwanted applications may collect different user information, slow down the PC and, in general, are created for one and only purpose – making profits for their developers and third-parties. Adware is the most widely distributed type of software for profits worldwide and experts strongly advise users to take defensive actions against it.
Shoppr Ads – How Did I Start Seeing Them?
Shoppr Ads may have slithered into your PC via several different methods. One of them is by something, called bundling. This involves third-party sites that provide users with free software. For those sites to generate profits, they may insert apps, like Shoppr as a form of marketing in the Installers of freeware downloaded from their site. This combination of drivers may or may not figure in the installation steps, and this is how most adware applications get distributed in many systems.
Shoppr Ads – What Does It Do?
Once installed on your computer, Shoppr Ads may administer cookies and other tracking content with the purpose of implementing the so-called behavioural advertising. This involves ads targeting you by observing your search history, clicks and browsing interests. More to it than that, those advertisements redirect to third-party websites. And most of us know nothing good can come out of a unknown suspicious site that advertises a newer version of your flash player, cheap products for sale, virus alerts and so on. Most of those sites may either redirect to third-party sites that have nothing to do with the ad. Some of them may download rogue antivirus programs, like Antivirus Pro 2017 for example.
Not only that, but third-party sites may also administer third-party advertisements that lead to something like scaninfor.info BSOD alert which pretends you have a virus on the computer and prompts to call fraudulent customer support numbers that may charge high phone call rates.
Also, your computer may become a victim of a malicious drive-by download type of infection from a third-party site. Such can vary, from the harmless adware app to ransomware such as CryptoWall 3.0 for example.
