What is Coupon Drop Down?

Coupon Drop Down (can also be found as CouponDropDown) is totally annoying adware-type program, which is used for causing tons of commercial ads. These ads should appear on your PC's desktop only when using such websites as eBay, Amazon and similar shopping sites. However, there are hundreds of PC users who claim that Coupon Drop Down ads are appearing during each of their search sessions. Please, be careful with them because the most of them are displayed on your computer because of trying to redirect people to predetermined websites that are seeking to increase their page rank or sales. So, after clicking on any of these ads (they are usually displayed in a form of underlined words, banners, in-text links, etc.), you may be redirected to websites that may be filled with suspicious content. Besides, you should also keep in mind another thing related to this program and that thing is Coupon Drop Down's ability to track PC users and collect personally non-identifiable information about them. Beware that this program may collect your search terms, mostly visited websites, data that you enter when visiting them, your PC's IP address, location, etc. After doing so, it may share it with unknown parties. That's why we think that you shouldn't keep Coupon Drop Down on your computer. If this program has already become really annoying application that causes only unwanted interruptions during each of your browsing sessions, you should check your machine with updated anti-spyware and see what it finds. We recommend running a full system scan with one of these programs: SpyHunter (Windows OS) or Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus (Windows and Mac OS X).

Comments on Coupon Drop Down

I do not know a lot about computer stuff. I need easy to follow directions on how to remove coupon drop down from m computer.

Please explain it as you would to a 5th grader. I am adult, but I need super easy steps to remove this horrible, aggravating problem.

Im frustrated with this as well... Ive also tried scanning... I am a professional attempting to conduct business at home and this keeps showing up. They take up my entire screen and not knowing I clicked to tell it to go away and it opened up more. Thanks for the insights I am going to give this a try after lunch. Ive got a meeting to prepare for!

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. (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.
I finally got rid of this. Thank you so much.
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!
Dave D
its the same with Norton, I bought Norton cos I was so brassed off with this thing, and its still there ;-)
I was just about to buy Kaspersky so thanks for the heads up on that. Has anyone any idea on this?
I cant get rid of it either! Have Kaspersky installed and that hasnt stopped it.

Same with me, this is BS!

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.
