What is adware?

Adware is a program that displays advertisements while people are browsing online. Advertisements appear in a web browser, pop-up windows, special toolbars or within the host program. Adware also can gather information about user’s habits and interests. Once it collects what it needs, it sends it out through a background Internet connection. Such behavior allows adware vendors to deliver targeted advertisements to the end user and collect general statistics. However, it may also be used for stealing people’s private data.

Adware is divided into parasitical and legitimate applications. Illegal advertising programs are very similar to spyware parasites and often have some of their functions. They can be installed without user's knowledge and start working every time a computer is rebooted. However, they are less dangerous than rogues because the most of such parasites are primarily intended to collect user’s personal information for marketing and advertising purposes. Unfortunately, you can never know what other purposes it can be used for.

Symptoms showing that your computer was infected by Coupon Drop Down:

•  Appearance of annoying pop-up ads
•  Appearance of banners and in-text ads
•  Redirects to unknown and suspicious websites
•  Changes in homepage and default search engine
•  Decreased speed of every Internet browser

Thank you for your help trying to remove this nasty hidden virus that runs in the background of your browser. In my case it was running on IE8 and placing hyperlink ads in my narratives on my eBay items I was selling and it was showing ads while I visited other webpage’s. It would not show on the program list for add and remove programs on startmenu>Control panel>add and remove programs. Nor would it show up on manage add on list for IE8. It was not picked up by my MalwareBytes or Spybot programs either.

First I tried to uninstall and then re-install IE8 but after doing that it was still there. Then I tried to reset settings on IE8 using tools>internet options>advanced tab>reset. I kept getting an error message saying I had to close open tabs still running to perform reset. There were no other tabs open that I could see so I know this tricky little bastard was still running in the background preventing a reset of IE8.

I went to Microsoft download site and found this program called Mr. Fixit that will perform the reset and override the coupon drop down virus running in the background. Here is the link to download the Mr. Fixit program.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923737 (copy and paste into your browser)


I did not check the box for resetting my personal settings and just let it reset IE8 back to default settings. After completing the Mr. Fixit reset the coupon drop down virus was gone. Yes!

After getting rid of this coupon drop down virus I downloaded and installed a great program that restores all the windows programs and corrects all the errors that were caused by this piece of crap. You can download it here...(copy and paste link)

After running the tweaking repair program my Windows IE8 is golden. Both Mr Fixit and the tweak windows repair are free programs. Hope this helps.

The removal instructions were worthless since I never installed CouponDropDown. Norton did NOT stop it from happening. So I went to my trusty Spybot (free program) and it removed it. YIPPEE! Always wonder what kind of success these programmers could do if they worked for reputable companies ... what a waste of everyones time and effort and money to just tick people off!

Sorry but Ive got the same situation - a stealthy installation of CouponDropDown that screws up Firefox. I tried a full scan of SpyHunter which claimed to be able to remove CouponDropDown, but it didnt even find it. I would really appreciate a real solution.

I have attempted everything I know how in order to remove CouponDropDown. It does not show up in IE. However, Firefox is infected. I have been through the Add/Remove Programs and cannot locate it. Apparently, it is hidden. Have the authors become smarter? I have even done a Restore and have even uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. Nothing helps!

I need new ideas.
