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 DealPly:

•  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

This article uses defamatory language and thus should be edited or removed.

DealPLy is not a "virus" nor does it "get(s) inside the system through its backdoors". People are specifically asked (and can opt out) if they wish to install the browser plugin. This plugin is no different from the Ask! searchbar or the Adobe PDF reader plugin. It uses the same mechanism to install itself as those and thousands of other browser add-ons do.

If you are going to post an article please try to adhere to fundamental principles of truth and fairness and abide by the rules of the website you are posting to.

I cannot comment on the effectiveness of the removal procedure since I have always opted out of installing this particular browser plugin.

Sincerely,
The Thinker

Dealply Hater!
DealPly is the worst kind of virus! It absolutely is backdoored in with other programs, and the most telling point? Its own uninstaller wont uninstall. These guys should give their confo if they stand behind the product, so I can sue them for some sense of satisfaction.

The fact that Dealply is impossible to uninstall from either my browser of programs list, determines that you lie. For all practical purposes, it is a virus, as it takes space, memory and processing power without the users permission.

This IS a virus, The Thinker. I just got rid of it, I hope this method will rid me of it for good. But also remember to manually uninstall from your system. It made all three of my installed browsers have melt downs and crash almost hourly.

Hi:

I crossed information about the instalaltion date of DealPly and some other applications installation dates in my PC.

Free Youtube downloader 3.5.174 has the same installation date as DealPly, so I assume that Dealply was installed during Youtubedownloader installation.

Sincerly I do not remember to be asked about that during Youtubedownloader installation at all...

I hope this helps smeone.

Kind regards.

Dealply installs without permission or asking with Drivermax (and other questionable programs). So it is really a backdoor pest. Removing it is hard because it has more than 250 entries in program files, program data, users, and in the registry. If not securely deleted it instals itself again.
Dont use programs it comes with!!!!!!
