What is Coupons by QuickShare?

Coupons by QuickShare are annoying pop-up ads that are caused by potentially unwanted program, which is also known as adware. This program belongs to a well known developer called Linkury, which is known for such suspicious applications as Linkury Smartbar and other programs that are capable of initiating lots of questionable activities on the system. In fact, these activities are caused as soon as victim starts computer and begins browsing on the Internet. Basically, the main reason why this program is called a virus is that it is capable of infiltrating computer without an appropriate user's permission asked. In addition, it may easily hijack all web browsers and then start initiating annoying pop-up ads during user's search sessions. These ads are mostly filled with price comparisons, information about sales, discounts, deals and other things that can easily attract people. Nevertheless, no matter how trustworthy they look, these advertisements are filled with predetermined links that are used for redirecting people to predetermined websites. All this is done for trying to earn some money by using a pay-per-click scheme. It can be used for promote anything, so you should be very careful with it. If you have been seeing QuickShare ads during your search sessions, you should waste no time and scan your computer with the reputable anti-spyware because there is no guarantee that these ads won't redirect you to an infected website that is filled with viruses. That's why we highly recommend removing Coupons by QuickShare virus from the system, especially if you haven't installed it by yourself.

Mostly, it comes as an optional component of download managers, PDF creators, video streaming software and similar applications, They are usually presenting this browser add-on as a 'browsing enhancement tool' or similar component that is capable of improving people's browsing on the web. Nevertheless, we think that you should never fall for such claims. If you want to avoid such potentially unwanted programs, you should always remember that you must check every installation window when installing something. For that we highly recommend selecting Custom or Advanced installation option when installing freeware on computer. Otherwise, this program may try to affect all of your web browsers that are installed on your machine, including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and other ones.
