What is ProShopper?
ProShopper is an adware program created on JustPlugIt engine that promises it can help you save money when shopping online. It is supposed to provide you with best deals, coupons and discounts. Unfortunately, that is not the main reason the software was created. ProShopper’s only goal is to promote its associated sites and it does not matter much if they have anything to do with your interests or even if they are reliable or not.
That is the main issue with the application: you can not trust it. If you want to improve your online security, you should terminate ProShopper. Leaving the adware on your system could lead to malware infections.
How does ProShopper work?
ProShopper has an official webpage proshopperapp.info. On this page the application is described as a tool for “fast, reliable, convenient, and budget-friendly shopping”. The site has a download button, however, once you click on it, you are presented with a message stating that an error has occurred and that the item can not be found. This means that the application is usually distributed via bundled third party software. It is important to pay attention to the installation process of freeware, because it is often accompanied by potentially unwanted applications. If you are offered to install additional programs in the installation wizard, decline them no matter how good they may seem.
There are various versions of ProShopper that have similar names like ProShopaper, ProShhopper, PROShoppaer, ProShaopper and so on. All of these versions behave in the same manner. They add extensions to Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome and start generating various advertisements. You will not be able to browse the Web without running into commercial data like pop-ups, banners, in-text ads, sponsored links and so on. Whatever it is that you see in the adverts, we urge you to not click on them as they may be fake. Clicking on a fake ad could result in malware infections. That is why it is important that you delete ProShopper as soon as you can.
